Almost a month after its launch, demand for the new M2 MacBook Air continues to be high as supply is relatively scarce. For basic configuration only, customers face a three-week wait , according to Apple’s online store.

In the United States, Apple states that for the base model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage, the “MacBook Air” will ship in two to three weeks. Other configurations with variable storage and memory options are listed in one to two weeks.

The delay could spell even more trouble, as Apple is currently running a Back-to-School promotion for students preparing for classes this fall. The new ‌MacBook Air‌ is an attractive buy for students, thanks to its light and thin design and the battery life and performance provided by the ‌M2‌ processor .

Apple Struggles With Supply Issues

Apple has faced a tight supply chain in recent months, and it’s unclear when this will ease, especially how much it will affect the iPhone 14s in the fall.

In the third quarter of the year, Apple began to experience greater difficulties. The company’s CEO, Tim Cook, said Mac supply was extremely low this quarter and it’s hard to gauge actual demand for Apple’s newest computers. Tim said during the company’s latest earnings call :

“In terms of testing demand, you can’t really test demand unless you have supply. We’ve been so far from last quarter that we have an estimate of what demand is, but that’s just an estimate. We know how. We think we have a great story with the Mac, we launched the M1, and now We’ve launched the M2, we have a very strong bid for the back-to-school season and we’ll see how we do this quarter. We’ll report back in October.”

Mac revenue for the third quarter of 2022 fell to $7.3 billion from $8.2 billion a year ago.
