We are getting closer to WWDC 2023 daily, and the leaks and rumors are ongoing. Gurman just released a bunch of exciting predictions a couple of days ago. Ming-Chi Kuo has just released information about the upcoming 15-inch MacBook Air and the much-awaited M3 chip.
15-Inch MacBook Air Info Leaked
A tweet from Ming-Chio Kuo suggests that the 15-inch MacBook Air will be powered by the M2 processor from last year. According to him, users will have two options for M2 processors with different cores. Thus, the “new 15-inch MacBook Air” will resemble last year’s.
In addition, Kuo estimates that 5 to 6 million units will be shipped for the new 15-inch MacBook Air model.
Naver hints that inventory adjustments and market conditions may be some of the primary reasons for this, but there is no word on why. Does it raise the question of what precisely this MacBook Air will offer? What exactly will be its selling point? What about upgrades? As of right now, we are still trying to answer these questions. The official reveal will reveal these questions. However, if this is the case, you should expect incremental changes and nothing too drastic.
Apple’s M3 chip schedule is being discussed. Apple has said it will start mass producing the 3nm chipset in 2023, which may delay the launch of the M2 successor. Mass production of the M3 Pro and M3 Max chipsets will follow. In light of this, M3 Pro and M3 Max MacBook devices are expected to be available by the first half of 2024.
The anticipation for the 15-inch MacBook Air during WWDC 2023 is palpable. Still, with recent predictions from Kuo, some concerns need to be addressed. Will Apple reserve their latest chipsets solely for Pro models? And if so, what will this mean for non-Pro users who want to upgrade to the newest hardware? While we have yet to get answers, it’s not entirely surprising given Apple’s history of prioritizing its high-end products.
Apple has always been known for pushing boundaries and setting new standards in the tech industry. However, such a move could potentially alienate a large portion of their customer base and limit accessibility to cutting-edge technology. Despite these potential roadblocks, we remain optimistic about what lies ahead. We can only wait and see what they have in store at WWDC 2023 – whether it be exclusively for Pro models or accessible to all – and continue to anticipate the innovation that comes from one of the world’s leading technological pioneers.
