The new MacBook Air was announced during WWDC this week, and it will launch next month, powered by Apple's M2 chip. Bloomberg reports that Apple is already working on a 15' MacBook Air, set to release as early as next spring, the first laptop of that size under the Air series.
The 15' MacBook Air is a larger version of the 13.6' model introduced this week, so it will not have the wedge shape found on previous models.
Apple is also working on a 12' laptop, slated for launch by the end of 2023 or early 2024, according to the publication.
In that case, Apple will release the smallest laptop in 2019. The company discontinued the 12' MacBook in 2019. It is unclear whether this will be included in the MacBook Air line or the Pro line.
Furthermore, Apple plans to release high-end MacBook Pro laptops powered by the M2 Pro and M2 Max by the end of 2022, though that may be delayed until early 2023. These are codenamed J414 and J416 and will be available in 14' and 16' sizes.
TSMC is expected to begin mass production of the M2 Pro chip later this year. Based on the 3nm process, these processors will have four efficiency cores and eight performance cores. M2 Max, on the other hand, is reported to include twelve main processing cores coupled with 38 graphics cores.
Additionally, Apple is in the process of developing the M3 chip, which is expected to power the iMac and other products later this year.
