In a nutshell: Apple’s updated MacBook Air was unveiled at WWDC 2022 in June and hit the company’s online store shortly after. Interested parties could learn all about the new laptop and compare prices in various configurations, but the option to place an order was not available. That will change later this week as Apple starts accepting orders for its new MacBook Air on July 8 at 5 a.m. PT.
