Apple might employ the new M2 processor and drop the ‘Air’ from the official name of the MacBook Air 2022, according to a leak

Apple was expected to unveil a new in-house SoC codenamed “M1X,” according to rumours. However, the tech giant went on to announce two new, more powerful chipsets, dubbed M1 Pro and M1 Max. They look to be an extension of Apple’s initial SoC, despite the fact that the next generation of Apple silicon chip may still be in the works.

Although it hasn’t been a full week since Apple introduced its new Macs, further information regarding the impending MacBook Air may have already leaked. Apple is rumoured to be considering altering its official identity, and the future laptop might use a new Apple silicon processor.

A new report from leaker dylandkt seems to correspond to that, suggesting that the next MacBook Air would mark the debut of the M2 processor. Unfortunately, the leak did not provide details on how it would be different from the first three Apple SoCs and how it would improve upon the technologies introduced in the M1-series processors.

The leaker also hinted at a potential name change for the next version of MacBook Air. But it could be simply called MacBook, which is reportedly a “current naming candidate” within the tech giant. While this information could still change, calling the rumored laptop just MacBook makes sense since it has been considered as the entry-level Mac product since Apple stopped refreshing the 12-inch MacBook line after its latest release in 2017.

Dynlandkt agrees with previous reports that the next MacBook Air is “likely” to ship with a mini-LED backlit display. However, the leaker says the laptop will not support ProMotion that allows Apple devices to deliver variable refresh rates up to 120Hz. Unlike the latest MacBook Pros, the unannounced laptop is not expected to have an SD card slot and HDMI port but it is planned to have an unspecified number of USB-C ports.
