We've been hearing news for a while about a major overhaul of the MacBook Air's design, including rumours that it will be thinner and lighter than ever. Now it's been reported that it will be released in mid-2022 and will have a mini LED display for improved image quality.

Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst who's provided accurate insights in the past, says the next MacBook Air will have a Mini LED display, a technology that Apple already introduced in this year's iPad Pro 12.9 and is expected to bring to the MacBook Pro later this year (see our guide to the best laptops for graphic design for the best laptops available now). If you've already got a MacBook Air, and you're looking to protect it, look at our guide to the best MacBook Air cases available to buy.
