A recent story claims that the arrival of Apple’s eagerly awaited big-screen MacBook Air is almost approaching. According to DSCC analyst Ross Young, panel production for the 15.5-inch MacBook Air has begun this month, indicating a “early April debut.” Take my money, is all I have to say.
The arrival of the 15-inch MacBook Air
Bloomberg and Young have both previously speculated on the potential existence of a 15-inch MacBook Air. Particularly Bloomberg has earlier hinted at a possible debut in the spring of this year. Ross Young later confirmed that launch in the spring of 2023 back in December.
Young verified that the spring arrival of the 15-inch MacBook Air in a tweet to his Super Followers today, . Young stated that “15.5-inch MacBook Air panel manufacture started this month.” “A launch in early April is what we anticipate.”
At this time, there aren’t many further specifics we know about the 15-inch MacBook Air. However, you would anticipate that it would essentially be a larger version of the 13-inch MacBook Air.
This means Apple would offer the MacBook Air in two different screen sizes, at 13.6 inches and 15.5 inches. Apple used to offer the MacBook Air in two different screen sizes, 11 inches and 13 inches, but it eventually simplified the lineup to get rid of the smaller option.
Ming-Chi Kuo has also reported on the rumored 15-inch MacBook Air, but he claims that it won’t be branded as a “MacBook Air,” but rather just a “MacBook.” The analyst also claims that the 15-inch MacBook will be available in M2 and M2 Pro configurations. The 13-inch MacBook Air is only available with an M2 chip.
Alongside the larger-screened MacBook Air, Bloomberg has reported that Apple is also developing a 12-inch MacBook. This machine, however, is not slated for a launch until sometime at the end of 2023 or in early 2024 at the earliest.
