after, after BloombergApple’s Mark Gorman has stated that Apple doesn’t plan to add a wide range of new colors to the rumored new MacBook Air, with analyst Ming-Chi Kuo doubling down on that information, while providing anecdotes about its own shipping forecast.
according to ko“The new MacBook Air will likely offer three standard color options and possibly plus one new color, rather than the iMac-like rainbow pattern as the market expects.”
Previously, it was reported that Apple’s plans for the new MacBook Air will bring iMac-like style with white bezels and multi-colors available. Now, analysts are betting on a more conservative approach, although this Mac will likely get a notch and at least a MagSafe connector.
Ming-Chi Kuo says the shipping forecast for this new MacBook Air is 6-7 million units if Quanta’s Shangai capacity can return to its pre-closed level before 3Q22.
In addition, the analyst believes that MacBook Air delivery will be better than current MacBook Pro models because it is shipped only by Quanta while the Air will be from Quanta and Foxconn.
While, it seems, China shutdowns don’t affect upcoming iPhone 14 productionIt’s impossible to say the same about the new Macs. Mark Gorman now believes the new entry-level MacBook Pro is also rumored to be presented at WWDC 2022 due to closures.
The journalist also shared his latest predictions about what to expect from the new MacBook Air:
- New design ‘no different’ from the latest MacBook Pro
- New colors (dark blue, space gray, silver, and champagne-like gold);
- 13 inch screen
- a pair of USB-C ports;
- MagSafe charging
- Connection ID
