Probably don’t expect a rainbow lineup for the next MacBook Air, warns Mark Gurman. Echoing the previous rumors launched a year ago by Jon Prosser who spoke of a palette inspired by that of the iMac (orange, green, purple…).
According to the journalist of Bloomberg, Apple would retain above all the three known tones of space gray, silver and gold. A gold color that would go towards champagne, he says. There would be little more, but it indicates that a blue color, like that of the iMac 24 “is not to be excluded.
We’ll see if Apple launches this new color for a laptop at the same time as the others, or if it will use it later, as it does with the mid-cycle iPhones.
That dress aside, the rumors described a laptop with a slab surrounded by a white frame, like the iMacs, and a keyboard with equally white keys. There are some questions too about the processor being used, if it’s an upgraded M1 rather than an M2 which would mean bigger changes.
A16 and M2, a marketing evolution for Apple’s 2022 processors?
As to whether this MacBook Air will be presented this Monday at the opening of WWDC, the outlook remains unclear. Gurman reiterates that the conference was in the spotlight — and then there are new student sales during the summer in the United States — but the health crisis in China may have derailed the schedule.
