Orders for Apple’s new M2 MacBook Air begin July 8

According to a new blog post by the company, Apple will begin taking orders for its newly redesigned 13.6-inch MacBook Air on Friday, July 8, at 5 am PT. The laptop will arrive at buyers’ doorsteps and be available for same-day retail purchase a week later on July 15.

It will be the second Mac to launch with Apple’s second-generation M2 system-on-a-chip, which follows 2020’s M1 with substantially faster memory bandwidth and graphics and moderately improved CPU performance.

It’s the same chip as that found in the 2022 13-inch MacBook Pro, which we recently reviewed. We found that the M2 offered 10 to 15 percent improved CPU performance compared to the M1 and as much as 40 percent faster GPU performance with the 10-core GPU configuration. Unlike the 13-inch MacBook Pro, the MacBook Air defaults to an eight-core GPU configuration with an optional 10-core upgrade.
