According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple plans to unveil a new MacBook Air with a larger 15-inch display at WWDC next week. The annual developers conference kicks off on Monday, June 5 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time with Apple’s keynote.
According to display industry researcher Ross Young, the new MacBook Air will have a larger 15.5-inch display. The current Air features a 13.6-inch display, however the notebook was formerly available in an 11-inch size. While a new 13-inch MacBook Air with an OLED display is scheduled to be released in 2024, the 15-inch model is expected to have a standard LCD display.
According to Apple supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 15-inch MacBook Air, like the 13-inch variant, will be offered with the M2 chip. For those considering upgrading from a 2020 MacBook, Apple claims the M2 chip offers an 18% faster CPU, a 35% faster GPU, and a 40% quicker Neural Engine than the M1.
The new MacBook Air would have a larger chassis with a 15-inch display, allowing for a larger battery and longer battery life.
Apple claims that the 13-inch MacBook Air with the M2 CPU can last up to 18 hours on a single charge, so the 15-inch model could go closer to the 20-hour figure. Apple silicon processors continue to be industry leaders in terms of performance per watt. While the 13-inch MacBook Air is limited to Wi-Fi 6, the 15-inch model is likely to be upgraded to Wi-Fi 6E.
In January, Apple introduced new 14-inch MacBook Pro, 16-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini versions with Wi-Fi 6E. Wi-Fi 6 uses the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, whereas Wi-Fi 6E uses the 6GHz band as well, resulting in faster wireless speeds, lower latency, and less signal interference.
Apple has introduced Bluetooth 5.3 support to some of its latest gadgets, and the 15-inch MacBook Air could be next. When compared to Bluetooth 5.2, Bluetooth 5.3 provides advantages such as increased reliability and power efficiency.
