M2 MacBook Air Shipping Estimates Slip, July 15 Delivery No Longer Available

Apple on Friday opened pre-orders for the new MacBook Air with M2 chip through its website and

the Apple Store app, and delivery estimates have already slipped for all configurations and color combinations in the United States.

Shipping estimates for all MacBook Air configurations have slipped to July 26 or later,

with some custom configurations with upgraded specs shipping as late as August.

When pre-orders first began, some configurations were available for delivery as early as July 15.

The new MacBook Air will also be available to purchase at select Apple Store locations around

the world starting July 15, but availability will likely be limited to the standard configurations.

Pricing for the new MacBook Air starts at $1,199 in the United States.

The previous MacBook Air with the M1 chip remains available for $999.
