The M1 could only process one external display connection over Thunderbolt, so the MacBook Air was limited to one monitor despite having two ports. The M2 may address this by allowing multiple ports and daisy-chaining. This would allow better processing times on certain media types like high-resolution audio or video.
Increasing the number of Thunderbolt controllers in the M2 could enable more ports as well. While there is very little space in the thin chassis, something like MagSafe or an SD card reader could squeeze in. The rumored ports include two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a MagSafe connector, and a headphone jack. That would be an upgrade from the two existing Thunderbolt 3 ports and headphone jack used today.
Thunderbolt 4 is a backward-compatible universal port that takes some guesswork out of specs and uses of the ports. Since the battery will be much smaller than the MacBook Pro's, it won't require as much power to fast charge. The webcam is expected to move to p and see some image quality improvements thanks to the M2.
Since the MacBook Air is considered a budget-friendly device aimed at students, Apple isn't likely to increase its price. This configuration will likely be identical except for the M2 processor. The release date of the new MacBook Air is highly dependent on the M2 announcement. Rumors place the M2 announcement in the fall of , so the redesigned MacBook could launch then.

Delivering a next-level audio experience, the new MacBook Pro has industry-leading, studio-quality mics that have an even lower noise floor, resulting in clearer calls and voice recordings. A high-fidelity six-speaker sound system features two tweeters for a clearer soundstage and four force-cancelling woofers, resulting in 80 percent more bass. The sound system also supports spatial audio, which creates a sophisticated, three-dimensional listening experience. So whether users are listening to music or watching a movie in Dolby Atmos, they will get a theater-like experience.
Altogether, this is the best audio system ever in a notebook. FaceTime includes new audio and video features that make calls feel more natural and lifelike, and new Continuity tools like AirPlay to Mac enable Apple devices to work even better together. Live Text and Visual Lookup bring new intelligence features to surface useful information, Safari includes powerful tab organization with Tab Groups, and the ease of automation comes to the Mac with Shortcuts.
Coming later this fall, SharePlay will enable Mac users to have shared experiences together through FaceTime, and Universal Control will make it easy for users to work effortlessly across their Mac and iPad. When it comes to the environment, the new MacBook Pro raises the bar yet again, including an enclosure made with percent recycled aluminum, percent recycled tin in the solder of its main logic board, and, for the first time in a Mac notebook, the use of percent recycled rare earth elements in all magnets.
Both models are also built with 35 percent or more recycled plastic in seven components, and all of the packaging wood fibers are from responsibly managed forests or recycled sources. Today, Apple is carbon neutral for global corporate operations, and by , plans to have net-zero climate impact across the entire business, which includes manufacturing supply chains and all product life cycles. This means that every Apple device sold, from component manufacturing, assembly, transport, customer use, charging, all the way through recycling and material recovery, will be percent carbon neutral.

As for refresh rate, Apple are offering up to Hz with adaptive sync, which they've rebranded into "ProMotion" although this sort of functionality has been available for many years now in other laptops and displays. The combination of everything though is a first, and the only rivals to this sort of panel are the latest wave of 4K OLED panels seen in a few high-end Windows laptops.
Obviously, a big talking point has been including a notch in the display. Apple claims this was necessary to decrease bezel size and increase the display real estate while retaining the webcam at the top, though I'm not so sure that's true.
The notch is absolutely massive relative to the size of the camera and sensors, and looks kind of ridiculous. I mean, surely this could have been smaller? But at least I'm glad Apple didn't put the webcam below the display. Liquid Retina XDR I don't want to dwell on the notch too much as in practice using the laptop it's not that big of a deal. Let's take a look at how the Liquid Retina XDR display actually performs and I'm going to start here with some color performance results because I think these are most relevant to a creator-focused display like this.
I'll get to talking about response performance later. Tested at native resolution, highest refresh rate. That's an excellent result for any creator looking to produce content in that gamut. Unfortunately the performance outside these gamuts is not great, specifically what's missing is Adobe RGB coverage which is relevant for photography work. Where the MacBook Pro's display ends up in terms of color gamut is typical for a modern "creator" laptop, the majority of top-end laptop displays have really good coverage of sRGB and P3.
That's not to say the MacBook Pro's gamut is bad or anything, it's just not as wide or as versatile as I've seen. Where the display is extremely impressive is in its color calibration, and this is helped significantly by macOS doing a much better job of color management than Windows. The various color profiles included by default work across far more apps in macOS than they would on Windows and this is one area where Windows needs a bit of an overhaul.
If we look at the options provided in the MacBook Pro's display settings, you'll find quite a few options including Apple Display and Apple XDR Display presets, along with a decent array of creator focused modes for gamuts like BT. Apple also offers True Tone and Night Shift functionality, which some people might find useful but ultimately hurt color accuracy. I've disabled True Tone for testing. When looking at the default Apple Display profile, performance is pretty good by default.
When displaying sRGB content in this mode, it's quite likely color management will activate in the app you're using to display the content correctly and accurately, instead of oversaturating it up to the full P3 gamut of the screen. When looking at saturation sweeps as an example, we find excellent deltaE performance, and good results in ColorChecker as well, especially around skin tones which are crucial to get right.
Greyscale performance was also solid, my laptop didn't quite hit a K color temperature but came close, and sRGB gamma was being displayed as flat 2. Based on this you should probably just leave your MacBook in the Apple Display mode for everyday use as it's accurate enough for sRGB content and will also let you benefit from wide gamuts where needed. If you want even better color accuracy, Apple's included profiles might be for you. For example, the built-in sRGB mode is even better at displaying sRGB content, with accuracy equivalent to performing a full calibration yourself.
I suspect the reason why this mode is better than the default mode is that it's specifically tailored to showing sRGB content, rather than the more general default mode that is designed for use in multiple scenarios. Color management is hard and creating specific modes for each gamut is generally the best approach, so it's great Apple has done this for you. I tried a couple of the other modes as well, here is the BT. Accuracy is great, not quite as good as the sRGB mode but still excellent for content creation with confidence that it's correct.
Apple also does a decent job with the DCI-P3 mode if you need to create video content in that color space, nailing the green-tinted white point and delivering decent gamma except for one flaw in the low gamma range. There is a downside to these modes, and that's locked brightness. However that limits the usefulness of these modes for viewing content, where the mastering brightness level is less relevant and your ambient conditions are more important.
I'd like to see a brightness override toggle, so that each of these modes is still useful for mastering, but can also deliver the best accuracy for watching other content. That would improve the versatility of the display and give you the ability to fine tune accuracy beyond the already very good default mode. Brightness and Contrast In the regular Apple Display mode for viewing SDR content, I measured peak brightness at around nits, with a variable black level.
Bizarrely, the MacBook Pro appears to change its black level limit in the SDR mode depending on the ambient light conditions, even with True Tone disabled. In a lit room, the black level was capped to 0. However when testing in a dark room, which is how we normally test, the black level halved to around 0.
This could be consistently replicated by covering or uncovering the camera and sensors in the notch. I honestly have no idea why Apple would control the display in this way, it's a pretty minor change all things considered, so it must be beneficial to something, but we have no idea on that one. There are so many zones here that it's unlikely you'll spot much blooming in practice, I found it negligible for SDR use even in tricky desktop apps with harsh edges between light and dark areas.
The dimming algorithm is tweaked nicely to avoid this situation and there are simply more than enough zones to prevent lingering issues. This sort of attention to detail is what I'd love to see more in the standalone monitor space, along with higher zone counts, of course.
In the HDR mode, brightness is extremely impressive. There's no major difference between sustained and peak brightness, so there's no automatic brightness limiter that activates after a short period to dim the screen in intensely bright scenes. That's impressive, although it does come with a corresponding increase to power consumption, so running the display at over nits all the time isn't advisable on battery.
When displaying HDR content, the mini-LED backlight will, at times, fully switch off to display black, delivering an effectively infinite contrast ratio. That's the best case performance you'll see. In more tricky conditions, such as a checkerboard test or measuring light and dark areas close together, I measured a contrast ratio of slightly over 50, This is right where you'd want performance to be for HDR content, contrast ratios of 50, worst case and up to 1,, or greater in other situations.
Apple are meeting all the recommendations for performance that I've heard when speaking to HDR, calibration and mastering experts. This performance also destroys basically any other LCD based monitor I've looked at before.
