After several similar rumors for almost a year, Taiwanese outlet Digitimes Asia claims that production of a 15.5-inch MacBook Air M2 started at the end of January. But announcements from other specialists cast doubt on the future of the Air range in 2023.
Rumors about the next Apple computers have multiplied in recent days, without necessarily contradicting each other. According to the website MacRumorsa new MacBook Air could see the light of day as early as the second half of this year, between April and June 2023.
Like the previous model in the Air range, this new version would be equipped with the M2 chip, but this time in a 15.5-inch format. Information based on an article published on February 15 by Digitimes Asiamedium specialized in the semiconductor market.
The largest MacBook Air ever released
« Industry sources said that this 15-inch MacBook Air went into mass production after the Lunar New Year.of January 22, still appointment MacRumors.
A product that would diversify the current range of new generation MacBook Air. If the first versions of Apple’s ultraportable computer were offered in two screen sizes (11 and 13 inches), the two models currently on sale are both in 13.6-inch format: the MacBook Air M1, launched in November 2020 , and the updated MacBook Air M2 in July 2022. If confirmed by Apple, this future product would therefore be the largest MacBook Air ever released.
Similar rumors… but not contradictory
Because nothing is confirmed yet. Although the Taiwanese media article resonates with other hypothetical announcements of a 15-inch MacBook Air due in 2023, it adds to other rumors about upcoming Air line products.
Two days earlier, it was display supply chain analyst Ross Young’s turn to announce that 15.5-inch panels had gone into production for an upcoming MacBook Air in April 2023… this time equipped with the upcoming MacBook Air. Apple’s M3 chip. information corroborated by Digitimes Asia.
On the contrary, the famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned already in June 2022 two upcoming 15.5-inch MacBooks equipped with M2 and M2 Pro chips, expected in the second half of 2023… although specifying that they may not be in the Air range.
But all this information does not necessarily contradict each other: as notedMacRumors, back-to-back releases of two MacBook Air models would be unusual but still possible. We will still have to wait for the official announcements from Apple to see it more clearly.
