Gurman: Apple to Announce 15-Inch MacBook Air at WWDC

Apple plans to announce the rumored 15-inch MacBook Air at WWDC, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. The laptop is expected to be unveiled alongside iOS 17, macOS 14, watchOS 10, tvOS 17, and Apple's long-awaited AR/VR headset.

MacBook Air Multiple Sizes Feature
Gurman revealed the plans in his newsletter on Sunday:

As part of watchOS 10, the company is planning to bring back widgets and make them a central part of the interface. This new strategy will debut at WWDC in June, alongside the unveiling of iOS 17, macOS 14, the 15-inch MacBook Air, and, of course, the much-anticipated mixed-reality headset.

The well-connected Apple reporter previously said new MacBooks were coming at WWDC, but this is the first time he explicitly confirmed the 15-inch MacBook Air will be unveiled at the conference, which will begin with Apple's keynote on June 5.

15-inch MacBook Air rumors began in early 2021, and production of display panels for the laptop reportedly ramped up in recent months as its launch nears. Like the 13-inch MacBook Air, the initial 15-inch model will be powered by the standard M2 chip with multiple GPU configurations, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

No design changes have been rumored for the 15-inch MacBook Air beyond its larger display size. The 13-inch model has a notch in the display, a 1080p camera, a MagSafe 3 charging port, two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a scissor switch Magic Keyboard with a Touch ID button, and a Force Touch trackpad, with available color options including Midnight, Starlight, Space Gray, and Silver.

Apple announced the 13-inch MacBook Air with the M2 chip at WWDC last year.

I just wish Apple would announce something interesting, like a larger iMac or a Mac Pro.

... I want 2 hours of software updates
I used to be like that, but with the decline in the quality of Apple software over the last few years I've come to dread it. This incessant need to bring out new bling each year while leaving tons on bugs unfixed for years just makes me depressed.

This 15" MacBook Air would be an amazing machine if it supports a 120Hz Pro-Motion Display.

Mark Gurman: The only journalist who gets his information from... other journalists.

We've been hearing about this for months. Why is this news?
