Rumors of the upcoming MacBook Air has been buzzing the internet since last year. The upcoming MacBook is said to come with flat-edged design similar to the iPad Pro and the iPad Air. There will also be two USB-C ports. Under the hood, it will use the M2 chip, which is expected to be more powerful and faster than the M1. The MacBook Air with codenamed J413 is tipped to come in a single variant with the M2 chip.

Besides, the same report suggests the 13-inch MacBook Pro will also get a new model with the M2 chip. It is said to be based on the current 13-inch MacBook Pro under codename J493. So, there is a chance the upcoming MacBook Pro will also have same design as the current model.

And it is said to carry an affordable price tag. The report further states that Apple might drop the "Pro" name which means the upcoming laptop will be dubbed as the MacBook. However, Apple is yet to confirm the same. So, we'll suggest you to take it with a pinch of salt.
