Apple fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the new MacBook Air, and recent rumors suggest that the 15-inch model with an M3 chip may be coming sooner than expected. Here’s what we know about the possible price and release date.
It’s still too early to know the exact price of the new MacBook Air, but we can make an educated guess based on previous models. The current 13-inch MacBook Air starts at $999, so it’s possible that the 15-inch model with an M2 chip could cost around $1,299 or more. Of course, this is just speculation, and the actual price could be higher or lower.
Possible Release Date
According to Mark Gurman’s recent Bloomberg article, the new MacBook Air with a larger screen is in the works, and the 15-inch model with an M2-like chip has already been spotted in developer logs. Gurman also suggests that the M2 chip is more likely than the M3 in terms of which one the 15-inch MacBook Air is getting, which could mean that the laptop will be released sooner than later, possibly as soon as WWDC in June, or even earlier.
Additionally, Ross Young, a display consultant and reputable leaker, has suggested that production of the 15-inch MacBook Air components is underway, and a WWDC launch is looking likely. He even speculated that the launch could happen as early as late April or early May.
However, it’s important to note that these are all just rumors, and Apple has not officially announced anything yet. As with all Apple product releases, the actual release date could be delayed or changed at any time.
While we don’t know for sure when the new MacBook Air with an M2 chip will be released or how much it will cost, the rumors suggest that it could be coming sooner than expected. If you’re in the market for a new laptop and can wait a bit longer, it might be worth holding out for the new MacBook Air. Otherwise, the current 13-inch model is still an excellent choice.
