According to tech analyst Mr. Jon Prosser, the American iPhone maker Apple will release a significantly redesigned MacBook Air soon after introducing a revamped iMac recently.

The biggest design shift will be that Apple will no longer use the tapered design that we’ve come to associate with the MacBook Air.

The tapered unibody design has been in use since its introduction in 2008, will be replaced with a look that brings the MacBook Air more in line with the iMac and the MacBook Pro.

The new MacBook Air will have flat edges, much like the MacBook Pro, and will be available in a variety of colors, like the new iMac.

Mr. Prosser also mentioned that he was provided with genuine photographs of the upcoming laptop, but that he hasn’t shared them to protect his source.

Mr. Prosser, on the other hand, shared renders produced in collaboration with RendersBylan.

These renders display what appears to be the latest MacBook Air, which comes in a variety of colors. On the side, there’s also a USB-C slot. The amount of information available from these renders is small, but it does give us an idea of what it could look like. There’s still no clarity about how Apple will handle the return of its MagSafe tech on this.

The new MacBook Air is supposed to have white bezels around the display, as well as a redesigned white keyboard. This is a major departure from the new MacBook Air design, which features black bezels and keys. The renders indicate that the latest color changes are compatible with a wide range of colors, but we don’t know how thick these bezels would be.

Given the changes Apple made to the iMac, it’s not shocking that the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro will see similar changes. Along with the possible redesign, the tech giant working on the M2 chip, which, if Mr. Prosser is right, could debut in the upcoming redesigned MacBook Air.
