The upcoming Apple will feature a processor “on par” with the company’s current M2 chip. according to Apple recently started testing the laptop to ensure it’s compatible with third-party App Store apps, something the company does in the run-up to a new device.
Developer logs shared with the port show that the device is configured with a chipset that features an eight-core CPU and a 10-core GPU, along with 8GB of RAM. Those specs indicate that the 15-inch MacBook Air, referred to as the “Mac 15.3” in the records, will ship with the M2 chipset, not Apple’s next-generation chip, as some previous reports have suggested. “The biggest changes to the Mac will come later with the release of the M3 chip,” bloombergMark Gorman notes. The new device was spotted running macOS 14, which Apple is expected to announce
About the most interesting detail revealed by the logs is that the 15-inch MacBook Air has a display resolution that’s “equal to” that of the 14-inch MacBook Pro. This means that the new MacBook Air features a less dense screen. It is not clear when Apple plans to launch the new laptop. The company announced the M2 MacBook Air at WWDC 2022. Gurman previously reported that the 15-inch MacBook Air will arrive sometime between late spring and this summer.
