Good news for those who’ve been waiting for Apple’s colorful laptops to come out: The new M2-powered MacBook Air will be available for pre-order starting on July 8th at 5AM PDT/8AM EDT. It was first introduced in June at WWDC alongside the redesigned 13-inch MacBook Pro that’s similarly powered by the tech giant’s new M2 chip, but Apple had released the latter first. Those who prefer the redesigned MacBook Air may not have to wait that long to get their laptops after pre-order begins, because it will start shipping to buyers worldwide on July 15th.
The new MacBook Air design gets rid of the model’s signature wedge silhouette and swaps it for a squarer look close to its Pro-tier siblings. Even so, it’s lighter than its predecessors and is 20 percent smaller in volume. It will also be available in four colors, namely Silver, Space Gray, Midnight (deep blue) and Starlight.
