Ming-Chi Kuo: Apple prepping redesigned MacBook Air featuring mini-LED in several color options

In a research note obtained by MacRumors, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said on Tuesday that Apple plans to launch a new MacBook Air with a mini-LED display and several color options around the mid-point of next year.

Currently, with the industry-leading power efficiency of M1, MacBook Air delivers stellar performance in a fanless design, which means no matter what users are doing, it remains completely silent. And the new MacBook Air features extraordinary battery life, with up to 15 hours of wireless web browsing and up to 18 hours of video playback — the longest battery life ever on a MacBook Air.

These details line up with previous rumors about the new MacBook Air from sources like Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman and YouTube tech personality Jon Prosser.

Kuo said the new MacBook Air will feature an “all-new design” with a similar form factor as the next MacBook Pro models, which are also expected to feature a mini-LED display and flatter top and bottom edges. Previous rumors have suggested the new MacBook Air will also feature a faster Apple silicon chip and a MagSafe-branded magnetic power cable.

Apple last updated the MacBook Air with the M1 chip in November 2020.

MacDailyNews Take: Last November, The Verge called Apple’s new M1 MacBook Air “a triumph… the MacBook Air performs like a pro-level laptop.”

And that was the first gen. with the initial M1. The best is yet to come!


  1. Normally, I would be all over this, but not now. If Apple goes ahead with this “privacy” on-device scanning of users, then I have bought my last Apple product (but have just started selling them). I have over 25 Apple products in home and business. I have Apple One, for the moment. I am Apple’s target customer, but they have lost me unless this is REVERSED immediately. CSAM is a terrible evil, but did you know that Fotoforensics, which analyses 1 million photos per year, found CSAM in just 0.056% of the photos they reviewed? Aren’t billions of law enforcement dollars and influential organizations working on this issue? Why does Apple have to violate the devices, and trust, of their customers, too? Aren’t their other ways to address it?

  2. MacBook Air in an old case, but with a new M1 processor? Is that so or not? If I understood correctly, this is not entirely new. Of several direct competitors, the new Air is produced by Apple itself. But competitors from the world of Windows can be listed for days. I bought what I think the brightest of them is, the Dell XPS 13, Version 9310, which comes with Intel Tiger Lake architecture processors. For me, as a writer, working on an online essay writing service is a great option.
