Apple is reportedly going to ship a long-rumored link textMacBook Air refresh with mini LED display technology in mid-2022, according to a new report by Ming-Chi Kuo.
In a note to investors seen by AppleInsider, Ming-Chi Kuo lays out a release timetable for an all-new MacBook Air. While a new design is expected, Kuo says that it isn’t clear if it will replace the existing M1 model, or be a higher-end option for consumers.
Elaborating upon that point, Kuo says that if the M1 MacBook Air is discontinued with the release, the Mini LED MacBook Air will probably start at the same price as the current M1 MacBook Air. Alternatively, Kuo is expecting the existing M1 model to lower in price, versus extending the higher-end of the pricing for the line with the new model.
Multiple colors are predicted to debut with the redesign. Kuo also suspects that the design will be similar to the new MacBook Pro that he is expecting to see soon.
Kuo believes that BOE will be the main beneficiary of the display order volume, with LG supplying some as well.
