This week at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), the corporation from Cupertino revealed the new M2 CPU as well as the beginning price of the MacBook Air M2 in Malaysia, which was previously written about on our site. However, a new claim suggests that Apple may launch a 15-inch MacBook Air as early as 2023. This information comes from the company’s supply chain.
According to a Bloomberg story, Apple originally planned to release a 15-inch MacBook Air along with the 13-inch model, but decided to focus on the 13.6-inch model instead. This year’s redesigned MacBook 14 and 16-inch M2-based MacBook Pros could begin shipping by the end of this year, if not as early as 2023, according to the aforementioned report. These gadgets, by the way, are believed to be powered by M2 Max processors that have 12 CPU cores and up to 38 GPU cores, which is more than their direct predecessor’s 10 CPU cores and 32 GPU cores.
It makes sense for Apple to manufacture a 15-inch version of the MacBook Air since it can appeal to people who want a larger screen but don’t need the features of a much more expensive device like those in the MacBook Pro series, which are more expensive.
This rumour of a 15-inch MacBook Air remains speculative, so we don’t advocate making any assumptions based on it. Because Apple has usually kept the width of its MacBooks between the 11-inch and current 13.6-inch borders, this would be the first time they released a laptop of that size from their lineup. After all, even the 12-inch MacBook was retired in the year of 2019.
In addition, rumours have surfaced concerning the return of the 12-inch MacBook Air form factor, but that’s for another day.
