Earlier this week, Apple launched the Global Developer Conference, which brought a lot of news about its operating systems. However, the company keeps pace with the recent tradition of unveiling new material during the event. The company has introduced the Apple M2 processor, which officially launches in the second generation for Apple internal developers based on ARM CPU. The company also took the opportunity to unveil a new MacBook Air with a 13.6-inch screen and Apple M2 processor. It will be released next month and obviously there is a new MacBook Air in the works. According to Bloomberg, Apple plans to launch a 15-inch model next spring. It will be the first MacBook Air series with a 15-inch panel.
The 15-inch MacBook Air will be the largest in the series
It is worth noting that the report states that the 15-inch model will be a wider version of the 13.6-inch MacBook Air. It will not have the wedge-shaped frame that accompanies the previous models. Interestingly, the report also proposes the development of another model with a compact 12-inch panel. There are not many 12-inch laptops on the market today, but the Air series’ proposal is to offer compact and lightweight laptops. By comparison, there are larger iPads nowadays and Apple even plans to release a model with a 14.1-inch mini-LED display. However, do not hold your breath for this slim model yet. The report suggests it may only come in late 2023 or even early 2024. If that happens, it will be Apple’s smallest laptop from 2019.
In addition to these MacBook Air models, Apple is also designing new MacBook Pro models with Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. Again, this is confirmed by reports that say we will not have to wait long for the new Apple M21 variants. There are two models that come with the code names J414 and J416 and will have screen sizes of 14 inches and 16 inches.
The rumored Apple M2 Pro will have a 3 nm manufacturing process. It will be the first ARM-based chip to carry this lithograph. In addition, Apple is already in the development phase of the Apple M2 chip.
