Rumored 15.5-inch MacBook Air to arrive this April

A new report claims that the arrival of Apple’s eagerly awaited big-screen MacBook Air is almost approaching. According to DSCC analyst Ross Young, panel production for the 15.5-inch MacBook Air has begun this month, indicating an “early April launch.”

Bloomberg and Young have both previously speculated on the potential existence of a 15.5-inch MacBook Air. Particularly Bloomberg had earlier hinted at a possible launch in the spring of this year. Ross Young later confirmed that launch in the spring of 2023 back in December.

As of right now, we do not know additional details about the 15-inch MacBook Air. However, we can assume that it will essentially be a larger version of the 13-inch MacBook Air. Accordingly, the tech giant will offer the MacBook Air in 13.6-inch or 15.5-inch size variants. The MacBook Air was previously available in two distinct screen sizes, 11 inches, and 13 inches, but Apple finally streamlined the portfolio and eliminated the smaller model.

TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has also covered the rumored 15.5-inch MacBook Air. The analyst asserts that it will not be called a “MacBook Air” but rather just a “MacBook.” The expert further suggests that M2 and M2 Pro variants for the 15.55-inch MacBook will be offered. There is just an M2 chip available for the 13-inch MacBook Air.

In contrast to Young’s prediction, Kuo has said that the rumored MacBook will go into mass production in the fourth quarter of 2023. In addition, he believes that the new laptop will use the same 30W power adapter as the 2020 MacBook Air, despite the fact that a 15-inch larger display uses more energy.
