Apple is reportedly ready to release two new Mac devices a their WWDC 2022 event, which is scheduled for June 2022. According to the rumors, Apple will release their much-anticipated MacBook Air, just a few months after the arrival of the Mac Studio and the Studio Display.
The Cupertino-based tech giant has announced that this year’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) would begin on June 6, with the WWDC 2022 set to last until June 10. It is pertinent to mention that Apple usually unveils operating system updates at their WWDC event, but Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that Apple is also considering of unveiling more than just major OS updates.
According to the report, Apple plans to unveil the iOS 16 and WatchOS 9, but the company also plans to showcase the next-generation MacBook Air, which is expected to arrive with an Apple M2 SoC along with a redesigned chassis. Allegedly, the Apple M2 has 8 CPU cores split equally into performance and efficiency cores, plus 9-10 GPU cores.
Basically, the Apple M2 features the same volume of CPU cores as the Apple M1 but it is equipped with additional GPU cores. The Apple M2 does contain other improvements over the Apple M1 like the smaller TSMC N4 manufacturing process.
Furthermore, the report says that Apple is also planning to release a second Mac device at the WWDC as well, but he did not specify what this device will be, although he has hinted at it being one of a new 24-inch iMac, an iMac Pro, a Mac Mini, a Mac Pro, or a MacBook Pro 13.
