Years ago, Apple’s MacBook laptops were offered in two sizes – 15-inches and 17-inches, but later on Apple ditched the 17-inch and the 15-inch was the largest offering. Apple also later introduced smaller options like an 11-inch MacBook Air, and then last year, the company introduced a 14-inch MacBook Pro.
Now according to DSCC in their quarterly report, the company’s CEO Ross Young has suggested that Apple could actually be developing a new MacBook Air with a 15-inch display.
Apple’s MacBook Airs have typically been viewed as a more budget-friendly alternative to the MacBook Pro, but we imagine that bumping it up to a 15-inch display could add to its overall costs and make it more expensive. However, at the same time there might also be MacBook Air fans and users who might be able to appreciate having a larger display.
The report goes on to claim that this particular model could actually launch in 2023, so don’t expect to see it this year at any of Apple’s events. This is also not the first time we’re hearing about a larger MacBook Air. Previously, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman had hinted that a larger MacBook Air could be coming, but also cautioned that Apple might have decided not to move forward with it.
This new report suggests otherwise, but since the rumored launch is taking place in 2023, that’s still quite some ways to go.
