Apple’s next one will feature a processor “on par” with the company’s current M2 chip. According Apple recently began testing the laptop to ensure its compatibility with third-party App Store apps, something the company does in the lead up to launching a new device.
Developer logs shared with the outlet show that the machine was configured with a chipset that featured an octa-core CPU and 10-core GPU, along with 8GB of RAM. Those specs suggest that the 15-inch MacBook Air, dubbed “Mac 15.3” in the filings, will ship with an M2 chipset, not Apple’s next-generation chip, as some previous reports have suggested. “The biggest changes to the Mac will come later with the release of an M3 chip,” BloombergNotes by Mark Gurman. The new machine was seen running macOS 14, which Apple is expected to announce in
The most interesting detail revealed by the logs is that the 15-inch MacBook Air features a “same” screen resolution as the 14-inch MacBook Pro. That means the new MacBook Air features a less dense screen. It’s unclear when Apple plans to release the new laptop. The company announced the M2 MacBook Air at WWDC 2022. Gurman previously reported that the 15-inch MacBook Air would arrive sometime between late spring and this summer.
