Supply chain expert Ross Young says a new MacBook Air due out later this year will feature a larger screen.
Young first took to Twitter to follow up on his big reveal earlier this week that Apple planned to release a new 15-inch MacBook Air in 2023. Young says the new model will have a 15.2-inch screen. He also said that it will not include mini-LED technology.
Young went on to point out that a new MacBook Air (2022) due out later this year would also slightly increase in size from 13-3 inches to 13-6 inches. It may not sound like much, but when he remembers that the measurement is a corner-to-corner reading, it all adds up. As a display analyst, Young hasn’t commented on the form factor or overall design, so it’s unclear if that means the overall chassis of a new MacBook Air could be larger.
Earlier this week, Apple stalwart Ming-Chi Kuo said a new MacBook Pro would begin mass production in late Q2 or Q3 2022, with the M1 chip, no mini-LED screen, a new cost factor. shape and colors. The latest of these was a feature previously leaked by Jon Prosser several months ago. Young confirmed to ComoHow his own understanding that the next MacBook Air will not feature mini-LEDs.
The news may be disappointing for anyone looking to ditch the MacBook Air with the M1, one of Apple’s best MacBooks. Rumors of an M2 chip and mini-LED display seem to have evaporated in recent months, leaving a lot to be desired in terms of overall upgrade potential.
