It’s rumored that the refresh of Apple’s MacBook Air, which should come equipped with the M2 chip, is scheduled for the second half of 2022. Aside from the processor, this updated model is speculated to have a 13.6″ mini-LED display, or slightly larger than the current 13.3″ model.
There are laptop sleeves, backpacks, and now, the GripBook Pro. The accessory by Unneccessary Inventions is described as a luxurious carrying device that comes equipped with a replica hand ergonomically shaped to mimic the grasp of a human hand.
Apple’s 2021 MacBook Pro is rumored to be refreshed with their own M1X chip, and it could be coming as soon as next month. All of these could possibly ship with Mini-LED displays that offer improved brightness, contrast and colors when compared to the standard LCD panels found in the current models.

Apple recently received approval for two US patents that includes sketches of a MacBook with integrated reverse-charging coils capable of wirelessly charging an iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch. These charging coils are located beneath the trackpad and palm rest areas. Apparently, there are coils in the top lid for charging purposes when the laptop is closed in clamshell mode. Similar to how the iPhone 12 has built-in magnets on the back, these special areas on the MacBook will have them as well.
Apple officially revealed their newest MacBook Air, which offers faster performance, the new Magic Keyboard, twice the storage and a new lower starting price of $999. For starters, it boasts two times faster CPU performance, up to 80 percent faster graphics performance, at least 256GB of storage, and of course a brilliant 13-inch Retina display, along with Touch ID for extra security.
