New 15-inch MacBook Air now announced for 2023, 12-inch laptop to follow

Apple is rumored to be preparing a new, larger 15-inch MacBook Air that could arrive as early as next year, while a smaller 12-inch laptop is also scheduled to launch in late 2023 or early 2024.

As for this new MacBook Air, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that the machine will be a “larger version” of the new 13.6-inch machine announced by Apple earlier this week. This lines up with an earlier report from display analyst Ross Young that hinted at a possible 2023 release. Gurman appears to back this up with today’s report. Gurman doesn’t mention which chip the new MacBook Air might get, but it will likely be a future-generation M-series chip. It is also not expected to offer any new display technology.

And as we mentioned before, the 15″ MacBook Air is 15.2″. It will not have ProMotion or MiniLED.

Gurman also notes that Apple is once again ready to jump back on the mini-MacBook bandwagon. A new 12-inch laptop is reportedly in the works with an expected release in late 2023 or early 2024. Apple’s previous 12-inch MacBook was discontinued in 2019 and used Intel chips. Switching to Apple silicon would improve the performance of a device still crippled by Apple’s help in removing all fans.

Apple has also started work on a new 12-inch laptop and plans to launch it in late 2023 or early 2024. If Apple goes ahead with the launch, it would be the company’s smallest laptop since it began discontinuing the 12-inch MacBook. inches. in 2019.

Gurman says that “it’s unclear whether the new 12-inch laptop would be a lower-end device or a higher-end machine in the MacBook Pro lineup,” which would have a big influence on its projected price. However, given the small size and the likelihood of Apple running out of a fan again, the former seems more likely. Apple once sold an 11-inch MacBook Air, a machine of which the 12-inch MacBook was the spiritual successor. This smaller MacBook Air was the best Mac for people who needed the ultimate in portability, but also suffered from poor performance.
