Bigger MacBook Air coming! 15.5-inch display with new Apple M2 chip planned

Apple could announce a larger 15.5-inch MacBook Air in spring 2023, a new leak suggests. Check details.

The MacBook Air will soon be bigger. Earlier this year, the MacBook Air received a major redesign for the first time in years, with a larger 13.6-inch screen and a new design. The MacBook Air 2022 also debuted with the new M2 chipset, which promises superior performance and energy efficiency. Apple isn’t done yet though, and we’ll see a larger MacBook Air within the first few months of 2023. How big, you ask? How about a large 15.5-inch display?

Yes, according to a new tip from DSCC’s Ross Young, Apple is planning a new 15.5-inch MacBook Air in Spring 2023. This is a completely new size for the MacBook range and will likely sit between the 14-inch MacBook Air Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro. The design of the laptop is most likely similar to the 13.6-inch MacBook Air, with a similar screen notch and slim design.

The 15.5-inch MacBook Air could hit the market in 2023

The display panels of the 15.5-inch MacBook Air will go into production in the first quarter of 2023. Apple could announce the 15.5-inch MacBook Air for the same price as the 14-inch MacBook Air. Rumors suggest that Apple could announce this 15.5-inch laptop with the M2 chip and a new M2 Pro chip.

I’m not sure which one
buy a laptop?

The larger MacBook Air can also get upgraded speakers, a larger capacity battery and keep the same Magsafe charging port. However, Apple may continue to use the same IPS LCD screen instead of the mini LED screen it uses on the Pro variants.

What remains to be seen is how well Apple is pricing the 15.5-inch MacBook Air. The 13.6-inch MacBook Air M2 is currently discounted in several markets. In India, the base MacBook Air M2 can be had for a price of Rs. 1.05 lakhs which is a lot. Apple also continues to sell the M1-powered MacBook Air in several markets at a much lower entry-level price.

In other news, rumors suggest that the 2024 13-inch MacBook Air model may use an OLED display with a higher refresh rate of up to 120Hz.
