New MacBook Air with 15.5-inch Overview
A handful of rumors over the last year have said that Apple is planning a new 15-inch MacBook Air to coexist alongside the current 13-inch model. Apple is developing a 15.5-inch MacBook Air that could launch in the spring of 2023, a media report said. According to display analyst Ross Young, the production on panels designed for the new MacBook Air will start in the first quarter of 2023, reports MacRumors.The new MacBook Air will feature a 15.5-inch display size. This means Apple would have two MacBook Air sizes available at 13.6 inches and 15.5 inches. Apple used to offer the MacBook Air in two different screen sizes, 11 inches and 13 inches, but it eventually simplified the lineup to get rid of the smaller option.

What to expect from the new MacBook Air?
Since the current generation of MacBook Air offers the M2 chip, Apple can follow two paths: announce another M2 MacBook, but with a larger display, or already promote the third generation of its silicon, the M3.While the latter doesn’t seem plausible at the moment, as the company still has to unveil the most potent M2 chips with other products, it’s going to be ab interesting mid-cycle update with a larger display.
