Apple just held its WWDC event last night and announced a bunch of new products as well as a few software updates. In fact, Apple officially launched the new MacBook Air 2022 and it is the first laptop to be powered by the new M2 chip. The new MacBook Air is thinner and lighter than the previous generation and the redesign makes it up to date with its Pro brethren. Software updates were also announced with iOS 16 taking the top spot. Apple showed off a bunch of new features on iOS 16 including an overhaul of CarPlay, Live Texting and more. The company also showed off new features and improvements on the Apple Watch including new watch faces and new running metrics.
The true star of the show was the M2 chip though. As mentioned above, the M2 powers the new MacBook line including the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. These new MacBooks do look pretty nifty but if the internet has anything to say about it, you know it’s going to be one hell of a hot take. We’ve compiled some of the funniest and most interesting tweets following apple’s various announcements at WWDC 2022. Check them out.

Also, can we please move to USB-C, Apple? Pretty Please?
The European Union wants USB-C charging for all devices so naturally Apple is going back to MagSafe. #WWDC22 https://t.co/klgB5syr3a— PCMag (@PCMag) June 6, 2022
The internet seemed to be pretty chuffed by Craig Federighi, though.
