Apple will be coming out with new products in 2023 and one of them could be a larger-screened MacBook Air. However, a MacBook with a smaller display could be shelved for now if the words of a tech reporter are to be believed.

According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple is planning to release a 15-inch MacBook Air in 2023. However, he also claims that the rumored 12-inch MacBook with Apple Silicon may not launch at all as well.

Unfortunately, Gurman did not provide supporting details for his claims. However, display analyst Ross Young did mention previously that Apple’s suppliers will begin production of 15.5-inch display panels for the next MacBook Air by the first quarter of 2023.

Hence, this could have led to the assumption of Young that Apple would be releasing a MacBook Air as early as spring back in December.

Aside from a potentially bigger display, the fact that Apple released a redesigned version in 2022 could mean that the alleged new notebook will carry the same ones that the 13-inch model had. Further, it could also mean that it would be available via M2 and M2 Pro chips.

Additionally, earlier claims of Gurman surrounding the possible coming of a 12-inch MacBook may need time before it comes out.

To recall, Apple had released a lower and higher-end 12-inch notebook in the past. There was a 12-inch MacBook that weighed just two pounds in 2015 but was discontinued in 2019.

There was a 12-inch PowerBook G4 that came out in the mid-2000s, something that came out before the original MacBook Pro.

Tied to that, the previous 12-inch MacBook was thermally constrained due to the use of Intel processors. The case may be different for Apple silicon, known to have superior performance per watt. Looking ahead, this could pave the way for Apple to reintroduce an ultra-thin, fanless MacBook.
