Reports of multiple color options are likely “exaggerated,” according to Gurman, who says he’s not expecting much more than the typical ‌MacBook Air‌ colors, but the gold color might be more of a champagne. He also says it will be available in his “favorite ‌iMac‌ color”, a shade of blue.

Rumors have indicated that the ‌MacBook Air‌ will feature off-white bezels and an off-white keyboard, drawing similarities to the 24-inch ‌iMac‌ and fueling expectations of a wider color gamut. Apple Analyst Ming Chi Kuo in march said the upcoming ‌MacBook Air‌ would feature “more color options” but he didn’t provide specific details, and there were no concrete rumors about color options.

The upcoming ‌MacBook Air‌ is expected to feature a redesigned chassis similar to the MacBook Pro, doing away with the tapered design. It’s not yet clear if it will have a notch, but it seems like a possibility.

Some rumors suggest that the ‌MacBook Air‌ will have a new generation M2 chip, but Apple analyst ‌Ming-Chi Kuo‌ believes it will continue to use a M1 chip, with Apple instead offering the new design as its main selling point.

The ‌MacBook Air‌ could be unveiled as soon as next Monday, as Gurman says Apple could introduce it at the Worldwide Developers Conference. For more on what to expect from the WWDC keynote, we have a dedicated guide that describes all the rumors we have heard so far.
