Apple expected to have plans to launch 15 inch MacBook Air, 12-inch MacBook
Days after Apple uncovered new models of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, the rumours have started again. Reportedly, Apple has plans for a 15-inch MacBook Air, and a 12-inch MacBook.
The 15-inch MacBook Air is anticipated to be a wider version of the 13.6-inch variant that Apple unveiled at WWDC 2022. The report suggests that Apple was planning to launch the 15-inch variant alongside the 13-inch but decided to drop the idea. It is expected that the 15-inch MacBook Air will feature the same M2 processor which Apple unveiled with the 13-inch MacBook Air.
Reportedly, the 12-inch MacBook will be the smallest in Apple’s MacBook lineup and is expected to arrive by end of 2023 or early 2024 as per rumours. If the 12-inch MacBook does arrive then it will be the smallest version Apple has launched in four years. It was in 2019 when Apple discontinued the 12-inch MacBook.
Reports also suggest that Apple will upgrade the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro. However, these upgrades will be incremental in the sense that the design aesthetics will remain the same but the processing power will be improved. The current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro feature M1 Max and M1 Ultra processors. Reportedly, the M2 Max processor-likely to feature in upgraded MacBook Pro models will have 12 processing cores and up to 38 graphics cores. The M1 Max processor has 10 processing c and up to 32 graphics cores.
