Apple is planning a new 15-inch MacBook model that could launch around the second quarter of 2023 or later, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said today.
In a tweet, Kuo said the notebook may be available with both M2 and M2 Pro chip options. In a tweet back in March, Kuo said the new 15-inch model might not be branded as a MacBook Air, but he did not provide any further details about potential naming.
Kuo also said he has not yet heard of any plans for the previously rumored 12-inch MacBook. Last week, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reported that Apple was considering launching a new 12-inch notebook at the end of 2023 or in early 2024. Gurman said it was unclear if the notebook would be a low-end MacBook or a higher-end MacBook Pro.
