The 15-inch MacBook Air shows signs of life as Apple pins its hopes on it

The 15-inch MacBook Air has been spotted on developer logs, said Bloomberg

Quick Hits
  • The new machine would be aimed to revive Mac sales
  • The 15-inch MacBook Air would use a chip similar to the M2
  • The new Mac will be similar to the current one but with a larger screen
  • Apple is preparing updates for three other Macs

The rumored 15-inch MacBook Air has shown new signs of life in developer logs ahead of its imminent launch this year.

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, this laptop is being used with third-party applications to test its compatibility. The 15-inch MacBook Air appears in the logs seen by Bloomberg with the model identifier “Mac 15,3”.

Gurman claims that the MacBook Air has almost the same internal features as its smaller, current version. The updates will mainly come with the screen, which will increase from 13 inches to 15 inches, but with a lower resolution than the current 14-inch MacBook Pro, according to the report.

The MacBook Air in the logs has eight main cores, ten graphics cores, and 8GB of RAM, similar to the current M2 chip, per Bloomberg. The computer runs macOS 14, which is expected to be announced at the WWDC developer conference in June.

Developer records like the one obtained by Bloomberg usually arise when Apple is testing a new computer before it hits the market. In addition to indicating the imminent launch of the 15-inch MacBook Air, Apple is reportedly working on updates for the 13-inch model of the MacBook Air, a new generation of the 24-inch iMac, and a new version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

In the area of more professional computers, Apple also has new models in development. Bloomberg says that a Mac Pro with an Apple silicon chip, as well as a new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the M3 chip, are planned for release soon.

Apple, who did not comment to Bloomberg about these computers, is reportedly hoping that these new Macs will attract consumers and boost Mac sales, which fell 40 percent during the first quarter of the year. Bloomberg adds that Apple has already warned that its earnings quarterly report, to be given on May 4, will not be as encouraging as it would like.

Search

Affiliate links are a popular way for websites to make money, but they can also be annoying to readers. They can obstruct content, trick visitors, and even be scams.

Supercharged is committed to respecting your time, sanity, and convenience. That’s why we’re doing affiliate linking differently.

You Control What You See

Have you ever felt like you're bombarded with affiliate links and ads constantly? We understand how overwhelming that can be, which is why we want to give you some control with the option to expand the affiliate options that you find interesting.

We're Strict

We have a strict policy of showing you a maximum of five brands or products at once. It's simple: if we wouldn't buy it ourselves, we won't recommend it to you.

No Tracking or Creepy Cookies

For all of our affiliates, we work directly with the companies to offer discounts and deals for you. We do not use third-party affiliate managers, trackers, or platforms like Amazon, so you can be confident that you won't have to deal with tracking.
