Apple developing 12-inch and 15-inch MacBooks: Next year, Apple will release a new MacBook Air with a 15-inch display. According to a new report, Apple will introduce a new 15-inch MacBook Air at its spring event in 2023.
The news comes only days after Apple unveiled the M2 MacBook Air, which has a 13.6-inch display.
If the rumor is accurate, it will be the first 15-inch MacBook Air that Apple has released in 14 years.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the design of the 15-inch MacBook Air will be similar to that of the 13.6-inch model. However, in contrast to earlier Air models, which had a tapered frame, Apple went with a flatter design.
The 1080p webcam will housed in a notch on the 15-inch MacBook Air. It will also most likely have narrow bezels around the display. In addition, the new M2 processor, already available in the 13-inch MacBook Pro, is likely to include in the bigger MacBook Air.
Apple is also said to working on a 12-inch MacBook, which will released in late 2023 or early 2024. However, it’s unclear if the 12-inch MacBook will be a low-cost alternative or a smaller version of Apple’s high-end MacBook Pro series, which presently comes in three screen sizes.
Apple previously released a 12-inch MacBook in 2015. On the other hand, the small laptop panned for its keyboard difficulties and lack of connections. As a result, Apple discontinued the 12-inch MacBook in 2019.
Apple will update the MacBook Pro series later this year with the new M2 Pro and M2 Max CPUs. In addition, new processors will install in the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models.
According to Gurman, the Apple M2 Max processor will include a 12-core CPU and 38-core GPU compared to the M1 Max’s 10-core CPU and 32-core GPU.
Apple is also working on the M3 chip, according to reports. In addition, the business is internally testing a new Mac mini and a Mac Pro.
