Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Air is still rumored to be launching in April. Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants. Young has a very good track record of posting information about future Apple products.

Last month, Young said Apple’s supply chain had begun production of display panels for a new 15-inch MacBook Air, which would be the largest display size the laptop has ever offered. At the time, Young said he expected this MacBook Air to come out in early April, and he reiterated that timeline in a short tweet Today.

If the 15-inch MacBook Air launches in April, there’s still a chance of an announcement and pre-orders coming sooner. Apple often announces new products in March, but it held an event in April 2021, so both months are possibilities.

The existing 13-inch MacBook Air with the M2 chip launched in July 2022 after being announced at WWDC a month earlier. It’s still not entirely clear whether the 15-inch model will feature the M2 chip or the M3 chip, as rumors have clashed. Last year, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that a 15-inch MacBook with the M2 and M2 Pro chip options would launch in Q2 2023, potentially without the Air branding.

Apple normally reserved larger screen sizes for the MacBook Pro, so a 15-inch MacBook Air could give customers more screen real estate at a lower price. The laptop would also have a larger chassis, allowing for a bigger battery.

BloombergMark Gurman expects the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air models to launch between late spring and summer.
