Apple is rumored to launch a new MacBook Air later this year and it will be powered by the company’s M2 chip. Now, a new leak suggests that the upcoming MacBook Air for 2021 will get new color options, much similar to the new iMac series. To remind you, Apple introduced its new iMac series with an M1 chipset in seven hues during the April Spring Loaded event.
According to the latest leak, courtesy of tipster Jon Prosser, the Cupertino-based giant is bringing a major redesign to the 2021 M2 MacBook Air. As per the leaked renders, the upcoming M2 MacBook Air will supposedly be available in multiple color options, including Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Silver, and Yellow. These are notably the same colors that the company’s newly launched M1 iMacs come with. Prosser released a video on YouTube, sharing what the 2021 M2 MacBook Air would be looking like and what it may have to offer. Here’s what the next Apple M2 MacBook Air would supposedly be featuring and coming with.

Like said before, Prosser shared that this year’s upcoming M2 MacBook Air will get an upgrade in its design. The design renders, as shared by Prosser, suggest that the affordable version of the upcoming MacBook will feature a flat design, much similar to the iPad Pro and MacBook Pro. This means the computer will no longer have a wedge shape and will be thin and light. In the video, he further reveals that the upcoming M2 MacBook Air will have two USB Type-C ports.
In addition to this, the render images suggest that the upcoming Apple computer will have white bezels similar to the new 24-inch iMac. However, the exact display size that the next M2 MacBook Air will have is currently unknown. Further, the keyboard front will also see a key design change with top row function keys set to get bigger. Another change that Apple is making is switching the color of keys from black to white.
If rumors are to be believed, the 2021 M2 MacBook Air is expected to launch with a 14-inch mini-LED display. The computer will launch sometime later this year with Apple’s own custom-made M2 chipset.
