The long and short of it is that a new MacBook Air (2023) is likely to happen. It seems that Apple thinks a yearly update of its thinnest and lightest laptop is worth doing. Although the line was just overhauled last year, coming equipped with Apple’s updated M2 silicon, a larger screen size, new color choices, and a bigger webcam, rumors are spreading that a brand new Air is also happening this year.
We’re not just talking about an upgrade to the current 13-inch MacBook Air. The word on the street is that the MacBook Air (2023) series is going to include a brand-spanking-new 15-inch model. Not only that but both are reported to be powered by Apple’s M3 chip.
We are starting to believe the rumors… about the 15-inch model, that is. The jury is still out on whether or not the M3 chip will make an appearance this year. It’s likely that we won’t even see M3 MacBooks this year due to the leak that Apple has delayed its upcoming M3 chip until at least 2024.
Whether or not the M3 sees the light of day this year, however, all signs still point to the MacBook Air (2023) making an appearance at the early June’s WWDC 2023 during which we may see several new MacBooks. They just might not be M3-powered. At least, the tea is that we could see an OLED MacBook Air in the not-too-distant future – more on that below.
Of course, this is all conjecture based on rumors, so make sure to take all this with a healthy grain of salt until Apple makes an official announcement. But if this turns out to be true, the reveal could serve to make a huge splash among the Apple faithful, and for good reason.
