Apple certifies a new battery that could be the next MacBook Air

MacBook Air

The luck that we followers of news related to Apple is that it is a company extended worldwide, with lovers (and detractors) in all the corners of the planet. So any news can be discovered and automatically spread through social networks from anywhere.

A user has discovered a new certification in the official certification bodies of China and Denmark, and quickly posted it on Twitter. From the data it shows it is a new battery model for MacBook Air….

A new model of 49,9Wh battery with a capacity of 4380mAh it has been detected by a clever user. They are two new presentations for the certification of an item that Apple wants to be able to import to Denmark and China specifically.

This documentation has been presented in UL Demko y China Certification Corporation, the regulatory bodies that must approve and test new hardware supplied by Apple in those two countries.

The item in question is a new battery that appears to be destined for a future MacBook Air, given its capacity. The current MacBook Air has a 49,9Wh battery like this model does, although Apple is using a new serial number, the  A2389 which is different from the A1965 model number used in the latest MacBook Air generations.

This means that if you have the same capacity but with a new reference from Apple, you must change the shape battery. It has no other explanation. We don't know yet when a new MacBook Air might be released, as these kinds of certifications can sometimes occur months before a new product hits the market.

The only thing we can deduce with this data from this new battery is that if it corresponds to a new MacBook already with an ARM processor, it will have more autonomy than the current one, since it will continue to have a battery of the same capacity, but with a processor that will surely consume less than the current Intel. We already know something else.
