Kuo: Redesigned MacBook Air With Mini-LED Display and Several Color Options to Launch in Mid 2022
Apple plans to launch a new MacBook Air with a mini-LED display and several color options around mid 2022, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said today in a research note obtained by MacRumors. These details line up with previous rumors about the new MacBook Air from sources like Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and YouTube tech personality Jon Prosser.

Kuo said the new MacBook Air will feature an "all-new design" with a similar form factor as the next MacBook Pro models
, which are also expected to feature a mini-LED display and flatter top and bottom edges. Previous rumors have suggested the new MacBook Air will also feature a faster Apple silicon chip
and a MagSafe-branded magnetic power cable
Kuo said it is not yet certain whether the existing M1 MacBook Air will be discontinued after the mini-LED model enters mass production, and this could have an effect on pricing. If the M1 MacBook Air is discontinued, Kuo said the mini-LED model will probably start at the same $999 price. If the M1 MacBook Air does remain available for purchase alongside the mini-LED model, Kuo believes it could receive a price cut.
Chinese manufacturer BOE will supply the mini-LED displays for the new MacBook Air, whereas LG, Sharp, and Foxconn subsidiary GIS will supply mini-LED displays for the upcoming MacBook Pro models, according to Kuo.
Apple last updated the MacBook Air with the M1 chip in November 2020.

I think once their product lines are all refreshed (14", 16", etc) Apple will see a major influx of purchases.
Prosser leaked this new design and the colours some time ago.
The image was created by RendersbyIan and based on actual leaked pictures.
(releasing the render rather than the actual photos protects the source)
This ‘confirmation‘ from Ming Chi adds more credibility to Prosser’s leak.
