Here is what we know about the alleged MacBook Air 15-inch.
Although the 13-inch MacBook Air 2022 hasn’t yet been made public, there are already rumors circulating about a potential 15-inch MacBook Air. The rumored future Apple laptop has been alluded to by a number of dependable sources, including Mark Gurman of Bloomberg(opens in new tab), analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, and display analyst Ross Young.
The MacBook Air 15-inch will reportedly be the biggest MacBook Air model ever made, according to speculations. The next laptop will likely include the Apple M2 chip and possibly the anticipated M2 Pro CPU when it launches in the spring of 2023.
Here is all the information we have about the 15-inch MacBook Air.
MacBook Air 15-inch release date and price speculation
The 15-inch MacBook Air should debut in the spring of 2023, according to Mark Gurman (via MacRumors(opens in new tab)). A new 15-inch MacBook, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, should appear in the second quarter of 2023 (or later). Ross Young, a display analyst, also thinks a new MacBook will appear in 2023.
The price of the 15-inch MacBook Air has not been mentioned in any recent speculations. However, given that it is bigger than the MacBook Air 2022, a greater price should be expected. Since the MacBook Air 2022 costs $1,199, a price increase to $1,399 or $1,499 is anticipated. The MacBook Pro 14-inch starts at $1,999, and the MacBook Pro 16-inch costs $2,499 as a point of comparison.
MacBook Air 15-inch design
The impending 13.6-inch MacBook Air is anticipated to be a larger model than the 15-inch MacBook Air. The new laptop’s precise size is said to be 15.2 inches. It would be 0.2 inches smaller than the previous 15.4-inch Macbook Pro, as noted by MacRumors. It ought to feature minimal bezels, similar to the MacBook Air 2022.
The next laptop should feature flat sides like the new 13-inch Air and a function key row instead of a tapered appearance. The 15-inch laptop is also anticipated to have updated speakers, a 1080p webcam, and MagSafe charging. However, we wouldn’t anticipate an SD card slot or HDMI connector on the Pros.
Similar to the 13-inch MacBook Air, the 15-inch MacBook Air is believed to have a 500-nit Retina display. Since a premium mini-LED is likely to remain a MacBook Pro feature, we don’t anticipate one.
MacBook Air 15-inch specs
According to Mark Gurman’s claim, the M2 chip, which debuted with the 2022 MacBook Pro 13-inch, will be used in the 15-inch MacBook Air. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is developing a 15-inch MacBook with M2 and M2 Pro models. This 15-inch laptop might be the MacBook Air.
The M2 chip in the MacBook Air 2022 has an 8-core CPU and a 10-core GPU. The specifications of the M2 Pro are unknown to us.
The 15-inch MacBook Air is the subject of recent rumors. Because of this, there isn’t a lot of data to sort through. We were, however, very pleased with the MacBook Air 2022 during our hands-on time with it at WWDC 2022, and we’re enthusiastic about the possibility of a 15-inch version of the notebook.
Given that the M1 processor family has essentially reached its end, we’re not overly surprised to learn that the MacBook Air 15-inch will use an M2 chip. Could the speculated M2 Pro chip also be in a configuration? Although we can’t be sure, it would be a fascinating possibility. We’re also interested to know how many CPU and GPU cores the M2 processor in this MacBook Air has. If it has a 10-GPU core as standard, like the MacBook Pro 2022, that would be fantastic.
