Apple is reportedly planning to launch an updated 13-inch MacBook Air and a larger 15-inch MacBook Air with the new M3 chip between late spring and summer this year.
Notable tech analyst Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has suggested that the next 13-inch MacBook Air might be equipped with the upcoming M3 chip. The chip will reportedly be manufactured based on TSMC’s latest 3nm process for improved performance.
The ongoing 13-inch model of the MacBook Air, based on a 5nm process and powered by the M2 chip, was launched in July 2022. However, he did not reveal if the 15-inch MacBook Air will also be equipped with the M3 chip. .
Gurman said, “A 15-inch MacBook air model with an M2 chip “may still excite consumers,” but would “quickly become outdated” given the M3 chip is on the horizon.”
Taiwanese supply chain publication DigiTimes also tipped that the Apple 15-inch MacBook Air will be equipped with the M2 chip.
Apple’s supply chain started production of display panels for a new 15.5-inch MacBook Air in February, tipped display industry analyst Ross Young.
Meanwhile, the Cupertino-based tech giant is planning to launch the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus in a new Yellow color option. The yellow color option was last offered by the company for the iPhone 11 in 2019 and the iPhone XR in 2018. It’s unclear if Apple is planning a new color for the iPhone 14 Pro models, but Yellow might be similar to the current Gold option for those devices.
According to a Weibo post shared by the Japanese blog Mac Otakara and MacRumors reported that Apple’s PR team is planning a product briefing next week.
