Apple is reportedly planning to release a 15-inch MacBook Air in 2023. According to a quarterly report by Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), the new 15-inch MacBook Air model is expected to come with a larger version of the existing 13.3 – inch MacBook Air. In addition, the entry-level iPad will also receive a refresh next year. Earlier, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggested that Apple won’t launch the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models until 2023.
DSCC’s Quarterly Advanced IT Display Dispatch and Technology report suggests a possible roadmap for several Apple products. Apple plans to launch a 15-inch MacBook Pro next year, as a report by 9to5Mac citing DSCC analyst Ross Young. In addition, the iPhone maker is reportedly planning a larger MacBook Air with a “slightly larger” display between 13 and 14 inches. According to the report, the company also intends to launch a larger 10-inch iPad model in 2023, possibly hinting at a redesign of the entry-level iPad. The current entry-level iPad has a 10.2-inch display.
Recently, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said he doesn’t expect Apple to update its high-end 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models this year. He suggested launching at least two or three new Mac devices by mid-year — M2 versions of the MacBook Air, Mac mini, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and 24-inch iMac are all due out this year come year.
