    WWDC 2022: Gone is the iconic wedge-shaped design. The new MacBook Air looks very similar to the MacBook Pro. The M2 chip is nearly 40 percent faster than the M1 MacBook Air and comes in four colours — silver, space grey, starlight and a deep blue.

    After months of rumours, speculations and leaks, Apple has finally announced the new MacBook Air running the M2 chip. Apple's "most affordable laptop" will be priced at Rs 1,19,900 and will go on sale next month. 
    The laptop has a 13.6-inch Retina Display with and iPhone-like notch, which allows for the screen bezels to be thinner. The notch also allows the camera to be scaled up to 1080p, or full HD, unlike the 720p cameras in the current MacBook Air lineup.

    MagSafe has returned to the MacBook. Apple's proprietary magnetic charging port, which detaches at a tug, is now on all of its laptops. This is aimed at averting accidents when anyone trips over a charging cable. In such an instance, the cable detaches, leaving the MacBook safe on the surface.
