Apple plans to release a larger 15-inch MacBook Air in 2023, but a Previously rumored 12-inch MacBook with Apple’s silicon no longer expected to launch this year, according to the latest information shared by Bloombergby Mark Gurman.

Gurman did not share any additional details about the 15-inch MacBook Air, but display analyst Ross Young previously stated that Apple suppliers would begin production of 15.5-inch display panels for the new MacBook Air in the first quarter of 2023, which led him to assume that the notebook would be released as soon as this spring.

Since the MacBook Air just got a redesign in 2022, it’s likely that the 15-inch model will have a very similar or identical design to the latest 13-inch model, and will likely be available with the M2 and M2 Pro chip options.

As for the 12-inch MacBook, Gurman previously claimed that Apple was considering releasing it in late 2023 or early 2024, but said today that the smaller laptop is no longer on the company’s near-term roadmap.

Apple has released low-end and high-end 12-inch laptops in the past. At the low end, Apple introduced an ultra-slim 12-inch MacBook that weighed just two pounds in 2015, but the laptop was discontinued in 2019. And at the high end, Apple offered a 12-inch PowerBook G4 in the mid-1990s. 2000. , predating the original MacBook Pro.

The previous 12-inch MacBook had thermal restrictions as a result of using Intel processors, but Apple’s silicon has superior performance per watt, allowing Apple to reintroduce an ultra-slim fanless MacBook if it ever decides to.
