MacBook Air with new iMac design and next-gen Apple Silicon SoC due in Q3 2022

Published

on

Renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities says a new next-generation Apple Silicon-based MacBook Air will arrive in the third quarter of 2022.

The MacBook Air based on the Apple M1 SoC debuted almost a year ago, in the fall of 2020. According to an authoritative insider, it will take about two years between two generations. The new MacBook Air will begin mass production late in the second or early third quarter of next year.

In addition to the next generation SoC, this new MacBook Air is expected to feature a completely redesigned chassis, somewhat reminiscent of the Apple M1-based iMac.

In the near term, Kuo also predicts that sales of the current MacBook Air will deteriorate. Component shortages are a driving factor in addition to declining demand for laptops for work from home as the pandemic fades.

Perhaps next month Apple will unveil new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros based on the Apple M1X.

Microsoft spoke about the song that “killed” laptops – back in the days of Windows XP

Microsoft spoke about the song that killed laptops back

A Microsoft representative told the company’s blog a story that happened back in the days of the Windows XP operating system. An unnamed major manufacturer has discovered that some laptop models crash when playing Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” music video. The same was observed with laptops from other companies.

Microsoft spoke about the song that

Moreover, the failure occurred not only on the laptop itself, where the song was played, but, sometimes, on neighboring devices in the laboratory. At the same time, the track did not start on them at the time of the failure.

As it turned out, the fault was the music, or rather some audio frequencies in the audio track. They resonated with laptop hard drives that ran at 5400 rpm.

Chen did not specify exactly which frequencies created such interference and which models were affected. But he told how the experts found a solution. The manufacturer added a filter that removed such frequencies if they were found in the audio recording.

And in the comments to the post, one of the users said that the first 9-inch netbooks of one brand faced a similar problem. In the model that was equipped with a hard drive, almost any loud music would resonate with the drive and could lead to data corruption or even drive failure. But here the problem was in the design of the case – the right speaker was located almost close to the disk.

At the same time, the manufacturer did not acknowledge the existence of a problem, but users found a solution – move the balance slider in the player all the way to the left so that the right speaker simply does not produce sound.

For example, in the case of a battery, this power allows you to simultaneously charge four MacBook Pros that consume 61 watts each. The maximum power per USB port is 100W. The Battery Pack has a capacity of 27,000 mAh, which is enough to charge a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air up to two times or an iPhone 13 nine times.

The HyperJuice 245 W GaN Desktop Charger is identical in parameters to the battery, except without the battery. At the same time, using this charger, the same HyperJuice 245 W USB-C Battery Pack can be charged in just an hour.
