Apple is said to be working on a new version of the MacBook Air with a brand new physical case design that's both thinner and lighter than its current offering, which was updated with Apple's M1 chip late last year, per a new Bloomberg report. The plan is to release it as early as late 2021 or 2022, according to the report's sources, and it will also include MagSafe charging (which is also said to be returning on Apple's next MacBook Pro models sometime in 2021). MagSafe would offer power delivery and charging, while two USB 4 ports would provide data connectivity on the new MacBook Air.

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is scheduled to report fiscal first-quarter earnings next Wednesday, and expectations are running high. The Mac-maker's business is highly seasonal, with revenue spiking every year over the holiday shopping season as consumers scoop up the latest iPhone models that are typically released in the fall. The iPhone 12 includes 5G technology throughout the lineup, and various data points continue to suggest that the newest iPhones are selling extremely well.
