Apple reportedly planning all-new 12-inch MacBook, a new 15-inch MacBook Air and M2 Pro and M2 Max powered MacBook Pro models



Apple on Monday launched its all-new MacBook Air powered by its second-generation M series processor called M2 with a 13.6-inch display. A new report by Bloomberg claims the company is readying a larger MacBook Air with a 15-inch display marking another major display size offering since the jump from 12-inch to 13.3-inch and 13.6-inch.

A 15-inch MacBook Air would seemingly compete against the Microsoft 15-inch Surface Laptop that has long been described as being like a larger MacBook Air-style laptop. In addition to the report of the company working on a 15-inch MacBook Air, Bloomberg also reports the company is working on a new 12-inch MacBook for release by the end of 2023 or early 2024. If Apple does release such a device, it will mark the company’s return to the 12-inch MacBook form factor last released in 2019.

As if news of those models weren’t enough, Apple is also reportedly planning new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets for release as early as the end of 2022 or early 2023. The new MacBook Pro models are codenamed J414 and J416 for the 14-inch and 16-inch model respectively.

We already know the M2 will replace all M1 Mac models and a future M2 Pro and M2 Max will eventually replace the current M1 Pro and M1 Max, just as we know the M2 series chips will be replaced by M3 series chips and so on.
