PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Apple nearly completed its two-year transition away from Intel processors for its Mac computers by introducing Monday the latest MacBook Air and a new MacBook Pro, both powered by chips designed in-house.

On the first day of the online-only Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2022, the company unveiled the M2 -- its next-generation homegrown processor. This so-called system on a chip integrates a central processing unit, a graphics-processing unit, a neural engine and more.
