If you have remembered that Apple’s newer laptops are too big, we have great news.
A new report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman shed some light on Apple’s future MacBook plans after the company announced a new MacBook Air Earlier this week at WWDC 2022. The most notable point in Gurman’s report is that Apple is said to be working on a new 12-inch MacBook, scheduled for release in either late 2023 or early 2024.
Apple has discontinued its last 12-inch MacBook in 2019, and hadn’t updated it since 2017 when that happened. The new 12-inch model would most likely bring performance and feature improvements over its predecessors, but Bloomberg’s report says it’s still a mystery whether it will be a low-end or high-end model.
We’d love to predict it will use Apple’s new M2 silicon, which Apple unveiled at WWDC, but by 2024 we could be in an M3 world.
Another point of interest is an alleged 15-inch MacBook Air, an evolution of the 13.6-inch model at WWDC. It would be the biggest MacBook Air yet, but Bloomberg said it could launch next spring at the earliest. Apparently the plan was to show the 15-inch model once at this year’s WWDC, but that didn’t work out.
Finally, by the end of 2022, new MacBook Pro devices could launch with updated M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. Other than new chips, they probably won’t differ much from those existing modelsper Bloomberg.
But really, this 12-inch model sounds adorable. Fingers crossed it doesn’t cost $1,500.
