Apple rumored to be prepping new MacBook Air with MagSafe magnetic charging

From CNET: Apple is working on a new MacBook Air that will be even thinner and lighter than the company's already svelte laptop. According to a Bloomberg report on Friday, Apple plans to release the new machine "during the second half of this year at the earliest or in 2022."

The new MacBook Air, the report details, will run on a new version of Apple's M1 processors and may shrink the bezels around the 13-inch screen to cut down on the computer's size. Also new: a version of the MagSafe magnetic charging system, which has previously been rumored to be returning to MacBooks after being dropped in favor of USB-C charging.

Bloomberg reports that the new Air would have "a pair of USB 4 ports" for connecting to other devices.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
