Gurman: New MacBooks Will Be Announced at WWDC in June

Apple is working on a larger 15-inch MacBook Air, an updated 13-inch MacBook Air, and an updated 13-inch MacBook Pro, and at least some of these new laptops will be announced at WWDC in June, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

MacBook Air Multiple Sizes Feature
In his newsletter today, Gurman said the new MacBooks coming at WWDC "probably won't" feature Apple's next-generation M3 chip, and will instead be powered by processors "in line with" the M2 chip. This information suggests the 15-inch MacBook Air will be powered by the M2 chip, but it's not entirely clear what it means for the 13-inch MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro, as those models are already equipped with the M2 chip.

15-inch MacBook Air rumors began in early 2021, and it appears the laptop is nearing release. Apple's suppliers have reportedly ramped up production of 15-inch display panels for the laptop, and the machine recently surfaced in App Store developer logs.

Apple is expected to announce macOS 14 during the WWDC keynote on June 5, and Gurman does not expect the update to include major changes.

Can’t wait for the MacBook Air 15” to be announced. It would be awesome if it comes with 120Hz ProMotion Display.

Where is the iMac? ?️

I still don't understand the 15" MBA not having M3.

If it doesn't, that means it will be a generation behind the 13" MBA and MBP when they are inevitably updated with M3 later this year. Or are we supposed to believe the 15" MBA will be announced at WWDC with M2 and then will be updated to M3 in the fall? Or the 13" MBA and MBP won't get updates until 2024?

And what about the Mac Pro? Is it really just going to be a Mac Studio in a big, empty chassis?

At this point I just want WWDC to happen so this can start making sense.

If they are going to announce an updated 13.6” MBA, what else could they do but add an M3 processor? It’s too early for any external design changes. This whole story about them bringing out new machines with M2 processors seems fishy.

Maybe they’ll finally come in colours and not miserable shades of grey.

Mac sales are down 40% Tim, it’s grim. Let people desire a Mac again and give them some colour!

My (very likely unpopular) opinion/hope: finally the iMac-like colors and white keyboards/bezel ?

A lot of people would hate that, but I’d have to take a long hard look at my current devices to see which one I’d sell and get a green or orange MBA instead.

For those who dont want to wait article by article for everything here you go

the company is planning to unveil:


* the Reality headset, the first major new Apple product category ('https://www.bloomberg.com/news/newsletters/2023-01-29/apple-aapl-reality-pro-headset-2023-will-it-eventually-replace-the-iphone-ldhhulli')in nearly a decade
* a new xrOS operating system ('https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-12-01/apple-mixed-reality-headset-rivaling-meta-set-to-run-xros-operating-system') and software development kit
* new MacBooks
* iOS 17
* iPadOS 17
* macOS 14
* a major watchOS 10 update

And these are 100% so KUO was wrong again ..he was the only one who said the reality headset is delayed by 2-3 months and not coming to wwdc
