It feels like we’re never too far away from another MacBook product launch and this time it’s a new 15-inch MacBook Air that is rumored to release later this year. The Air has been considered the best MacBook for general use since the introduction of the M2 chip – and better yet – it isn’t a complete bank breaker when it comes to price.
This means it’s no great surprise that a new model, specifically built around a new screen size, looks set to launch in just a few months. Noted display analyst Ross Young first stated that the new 15-inch MacBook Air would begin production early in 2023, specifically within the first quarter, with a springtime launch also possible.
The idea behind the 15-inch MacBook Air has been floating around since last year with it almost seeming obvious that this size would bridge the gap for those who believe 13.3-inch displays aren’t quite enough. Officially, the 15-inch MacBook Air would come in at 15.5-inches, corner to corner.
Between rumors of an M3 chip to power a new line of MacBook Air products and this 15-inch version, it’s proving hard to keep track of exactly what Apple has up their sleeve for WWDC in June.
Apple are expected to reveal the 15-inch MacBook Air alongside a short turnaround for it’s release. With WWDC taking place between 5th-9th June, release could come before the end of the same month in typical Apple fashion.
One thing that is very clear, however, is that many believe that unless Apple find a way to produce the MacBook Air at a reduced cost, nothing will rival the value and performance package that comes with the Apple MacBook Air M1, released back in 2020.
