This year, Apple is rumored to release a larger 15-inch MacBook Air. Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), the company’s annual developer’s conference, will be conducted from June 5 to 9.
The only difference between this larger MacBook Air and its 13-inch counterpart may be dimensions. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that Apple is accelerating testing for yet-to-be-released Macs that feature processors “on par” with the M2 chip.

Apple has been evaluating the compatibility of these new Macs with third-party applications from the App Store, and according to the developer logs, there is a MacBook with a larger, higher-resolution display, but the same chip as the present models. This larger MacBook with the designation “Mac 15,3” could be the rumored 15-inch Air model.

Gurman observes that the chip powering the aforementioned MacBook has 8 cores and a 10-core graphics processor, a configuration akin to that of the M2 chip. Similar to the 13-inch MacBook Air, the MacBook features 8GB of RAM, which may be the default option for the upcoming model. In order to differentiate the ‘Air’ and ‘Pro’ lineups, the 15-inch MacBook Air would have possessed the same resolution of the screen as the 14-inch MacBook Pro, but a less crisp display than the Pro. Therefore, the M2 chip in the new machine may indicate that the M3 chip isn’t going to be shown at the developer’s conference and will be saved for a later date.
