'Apple is working on a redesigned MacBook Air for the 2022 release,' said Minchey Kuo , a trusted Apple analyst, in a note released to investors. I clarified the analysis.

Kuo predicts that the new MacBook Air coming in 2022 will have a mini LED display. It is said that this new MacBook Air is equipped with a 13.3 inch display, and it seems that the display size will not change from the current M1 equipped MacBook Air.

In the case of the current model of MacBook Pro, 13-inch model and 16-inch model are available, but it is rumored that the 14-inch model will appear in the new model. That's why Kuo predicts that the display will be upsized on the more expensive MacBook Pro and not on the Air.

The mini LED display is a display that achieves liquid crystal level cost performance and long life while achieving high contrast at the level of organic EL display (OLED). When a 12.9-inch iPad Pro (left) equipped with a mini LED display and an 11-inch iPad Pro (right) equipped with a liquid crystal display are placed side by side to maximize the brightness of the terminal and play back the image, the black color on the screen appears on the mini LED display. You can see that it becomes pitch black, that is, the contrast becomes clearer.

In addition to this, Kuo predicts that the new MacBook Air will be equipped with an upgraded Apple Silicon. Another Apple-related leak information person also released leak information that 'the new MacBook Air will be the first Mac equipped with the M2 chip (next generation model of the M1 chip)', so this is Mr. Kuo It will match the information in.

In addition, it is reported that the MacBook Pro, which is rumored to be released in the latter half of 2021, will be equipped with an upgraded version of the M1 chip called the M1X chip.
