Mini-LED 2021 MacBook Air: Everything We Need To Know

Interested in the latest on the new Mini-LED MacBook Air? You’ve come to the right place. You may have heard the rumors that the MacBook Air design is getting an overhaul, and is set to include a mini-LED. But can these rumors be trusted? And how much do we know for certain right now? Not a great deal is known about the 2022 MacBook Air, but an upgrade will be welcome, if not entirely necessary. 

Mini-LED MacBook Air – What’s New?

So, what’s new with the rumored Mini-LED MacBook Air? And why should you be interested? From what we know right now, the Mini-LED MacBook Air will be lighter and slimmer than the models we have available to us now. Of course, the biggest change will be the inclusion of the mini-LED technology, which will be the first entry-level MacBook to receive it. 

But what’s so great about Mini-LED technology? Mini-LED provides better light, contrast, and colors, in comparison to the screen backlight technology we have at the moment, as well as providing a better high dynamic range. This is great news for those of us that spend long hours in front of a screen as it will reduce strain on the eyes.

Mini-LED MacBook Air – When Will it Release?

If you are looking to get your hands on the redesigned Mini-LED MacBook Air this year you’re likely to be disappointed. We’re still in the early stages here, and although what we’ve heard so far sounds good, nothing will be set in concrete until the official reveal announcement. However, we can be sure that the Mini-LED MacBook Air will be released in 2022, according to an investor note published by Ming-Chi Kuo. 

If you’re interested in checking out the mini-LED screen technology for yourself but don’t want to have to wait until next year, we’ve got good news for you. 

The new tech is expected to be utilized in the new iPad Pro and MacBook Pro set to release later this year! Both are expected to appear on the shelves in the second half of 2021. 

Mini-LED MacBook Air – Will it Be Worth it? 

If, like us, you’re into your technology (and we expect you are, otherwise you wouldn’t be here!), the new mini-LED MacBook Air is definitely one to keep an eye on. Whether you use a MacBook to work, or simply for personal use when playing games or browsing the web, there’s never a situation where you would not benefit from the mini-LED technology. It is shaping up to be quite a big deal in the future of screen technology! 

Will it be worth it if you already own a perfectly serviceable MacBook? Well, that’s debatable. We’re yet to see a price tag, but we can only assume the mini-LED tech will bump the price a little more than we’re used to, as it is expensive technology. This being said, According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will be able to use the more expensive mini LED panels for the MacBook Air because the company won’t be spending as much money on the processor front. The 2022 range of mini-LED MacBook Airs will most likely use Apple Silicon, they won’t have to pay money to Intel for the use of their processors.
