The Apple MacBook Air 2022 is finally about to hit the shops. Apple's announced the release date and the date that orders will open for the much-anticipated updated MacBook Air with its new M2 chip. The last MacBook Air was released in 2020 with the M1 chip and has been one of our favourite laptops ever since, so we have high hopes for the new model.

Apple's says orders will open for the MacBook Air 2022 on Friday, 8 July at 5am Pacific Time / 1pm in the UK. It says deliveries and in-store availability will begin next week, on Friday 15 July. Where will this new laptop fit into the MacBook family? Well, Apple updated its top-end MacBook Pro 14 and 16 last year, turning what are its most powerful laptops yet with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. It's since released a new 13in MacBook Pro with an M2 chip, that comes below them in terms of power.
