According to a report from Mark Gurman, an unreleased 15-inch MacBook Air has been spotted in App Store developer logs. The laptop is said to be equipped with a processor “on par” with Apple’s upcoming M2 chip and is expected to be released in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
The new MacBook Air is reportedly fitted with an 8-core CPU and a 10-core GPU, just like the M2 chip. It is also listed with 8GB of RAM and the model identifier “Mac 15,3”. The laptop is said to be running macOS 14, which is also expected to be announced at WWDC alongside iOS 17 and other software updates. Additionally, the laptop is listed with a display resolution equal to that of the 14-inch MacBook Pro.
While there have been conflicting reports about which chip the 15-inch MacBook Air will use, the developer logs and Gurman’s statement that the M3 chip is “coming later” suggest that the initial 15-inch model will be powered by the M2 chip, just like the 13-inch model.
The rumor of a larger MacBook Air first surfaced in 2021, with reports of production of 15-inch display panels ramping up in recent months. Although the release date of the laptop is not confirmed, it is likely to be announced at WWDC, which begins on June 5. At the same event last year, Apple announced the 13-inch MacBook Air with the M2 chip.

According to Gurman, Apple is also working on an updated 13-inch MacBook Air, which suggests that the company is continuing to prioritize the development of its popular laptop lineup. With the introduction of the M2 chip, it will be interesting to see how the new MacBook Air performs and whether it can live up to the hype. Apple’s WWDC is just around the corner, so we won’t have to wait long to find out.
