Apple to unveil two new Macs at WWDC 2022, including the long-awaited MacBook Air
Last week, Apple announced that this year's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) would begin on June 6, with WWDC 2022 set to last until June 10. Typically, Apple uses WWDC to unveil operating system updates, which Mark Gurman claims will be the case with iOS 16 and watchOS 9. However, the Bloomberg editor adds that Apple is considering unveiling more than just major OS updates during the same period.
Specifically, Gurman asserts that Apple will finally showcase a next-generation MacBook Air, which first leaked courtesy of Jon Prosser. While Gurman has not provided any details about this year's MacBook Air, the machine is expected to arrive with an Apple M2 SoC plus a redesigned chassis. Allegedly, the Apple M2 has 8 CPU cores split equally into performance and efficiency cores, plus 9-10 GPU cores.
In other words, the Apple M2 will feature the same volume of CPU cores as the Apple M1 but with two additional GPU cores. Reputedly, the Apple M2 will contain other improvements over the Apple M1 too though, such as a smaller TSMC N4 manufacturing process. Incidentally, Gurman claims that Apple is also planning to release a second Mac device around WWDC 2022. Unfortunately, he has not specified what this device will be, although he has hinted at it being one of a new 24-inch iMac, an iMac Pro, a Mac mini, a Mac Pro or a MacBook Pro 13.
