Apple WWDC 2023: US-based tech giant Apple is planning to unveil the 15-inch MacBook Air at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The conference, which begins on June 5, will also include the announcement of new operating systems including iOS 17, macOS 14, watchOS 10 and tvOS 17, as well as Apple’s AR/VR headset.
The 15-inch MacBook Air rumors started in early 2021, and display panel production for the laptop has been ramping up in recent months. According to a report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the laptop will be powered by Apple’s standard M.2 chip, with multiple graphics processing unit (GPU) configurations.
According to the report, apart from the larger display size of the 15-inch MacBook Air, no design changes are rumored. The potential 15-inch MacBook Air is reported to have an 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU – the same as the outgoing M2 chipset. It will also have 8GB of RAM as the base option. The laptop has been identified with the model number “Mac 15,3” and is listed as running macOS 14.
Last year, Apple announced the 13-inch MacBook Air with the M2 chip at WWDC. 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. Available color options include Midnight, Starlight, Space Gray and Silver.
Also, Apple is expected to announce iOS 17 during its WWDC keynote on June 5. The first beta version of the update should be made available to developers after the keynote, while a public beta is likely to be available in July.
According to a recent Weibo post, the upcoming iOS 17 update is expected to bring new features and changes in various areas including the Lock Screen, Apple Music, App Library and Control Center.
Users can have the option of adjusting the font size on the lock screen, making it more customizable to their preferences. Additionally, a new button could allow users to share their custom lock screen designs with other iPhone users, adding a fun and interactive element to personalizing their devices.
