New MacBook Air may arrive this year, huge MacBook Pro feature returning

New MacBook Air may arrive this year, huge MacBook Pro feature returning”

The plan is to release it as early as late 2021 or 2022, according to the report's sources, and it will also include MagSafe charging (which is also said to be returning on Apple's next MacBook Pro models sometime in 2021).

The Bloomberg report also talks about Apple considering building a larger version of the MacBook Air with a 15-inch screen, but Apple isn't moving forward with this for the next generation, the people close to the matter told Bloomberg. Gurman mentions that these changes will not replace the current MacBook Air that was just announced but exist as a more premium alternative. Firstly, a new MacBook Air model is in the works. Apple has also discussed making the laptop smaller by shrinking the bezels around the screen, which will remain the same size at 13-inches, the report further said. This makes sense given how new the device is. Gurman also says the new Pro will bring back an SD card slot which would be a major surprise. Prior to the 2016 MacBook Pro refresh, Apple did offer an SD card slot which has now slowly phased out and is missing from a majority of laptops today.

For fans of Apple hardware, 2021 is shaping up as a big year in terms of new hardware announcements across the board. Kuo says there will be no Intel option for the new Macs, and that they'll be equipped with more types of port so that users "may not need adapters".

Apple's next MacBook Air could be even thinner and lighter

It also seems that the new design with have MagSafe magnetic charging - this could be in a similar way to the iPhone 12, it could be a new port or it could somehow magnetise the USB-C cable - we'll have to wait and see on that front. A few years ago, the company was criticized for not updating these computers enough and not paying attention to customer demands.

This year, Apple will also release new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros and a redesigned iMac.
