The upcoming 2022 MacBook Air isn’t expected to come in a range of colors similar to the 24-inch iMac, according to BloombergMark Gorman. In a tweet, Gurman said that the MacBook Air will likely come in standard gray, silver and gold colors, similar to previous models.


Reports of the multiple color options are probably “exaggerated,” according to Gorman, who says he doesn’t expect much more than typical MacBook Air colors, but the gold color could be closer to champagne. He also says that it will be available in his “favorite iMac‌ color,” a shade of blue.

Rumors have suggested that the MacBook Air‌ will have off-white bezels and an off-white keyboard, drawing parallels with the 24-inch iMac and raising expectations with a wider range of colors. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in March that the upcoming MacBook Air will have “more color options” but did not provide specifics, and there were no specific rumors regarding color options.

The upcoming MacBook Air is expected to feature a redesigned chassis similar to the MacBook Pro, eliminating the tapered design. It is not yet clear if there will be a degree, but it appears to be a possibility.

Some rumors have indicated that the MacBook Air will feature a next-generation M2 chip, but Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo‌ believes it will continue to use the M1 chip, with Apple instead introducing the new design as the main selling point.

The ‌MacBook Air‌ could be revealed as soon as next Monday, with Gurman saying that Apple may present it at its Worldwide Developers Conference. For more info on what to expect from the WWDC keynote, we’ve got a dedicated guide detailing all the rumors we’ve heard so far.
