Apple Announces The 15-Inch MacBook Air At WWDC 2023

Apple has today announced its first 15-inch MacBook Air, a product that has been rumored but is now official.

The machine will no doubt now be one of the best Macs for the majority of people thanks to its impressive performance and large display.

That display comes in at 15.3 inches and offers up to 500 nits of brightness alongside support for 1 billion colors. That’s powered by an Apple-designed M2 chip just like the smaller 13.6-inch MacBook Air, while a big battery ensures that 18 hours of battery life is available to users.

The 15-inch MacBook Air is fanless for super-quiet running and includes an all-new six-speaker sound system and support for Spatial Audio. Despite the fanless design the 15-inch MacBook Air is powered by an 8-core CPU with four performance cores and four efficiency cores, a 10-core GPU for graphics performance, and a 16-core Neural Engine. Support for up to 24GB of RAM is also included.

Physically, the new MacBook Air is just 11.5 mm thin and weighs 3.3 pounds, with Apple keen to point out that it’s almost 40% thinner and half a pound lighter than the Windows competition.

Charging is handled by MagSafe, while the two Thunderbolt ports provide support for up to a single 6K display. There’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack as well.

Buyers of the 15-inch MacBook Air will be able to choose between midnight, starlight, space gray, and silver colors when it goes on sale with a starting price of $1,299. That also means that the M2 13-inch MacBook Air is now sold for just $1,099 while the M1 MacBook Air falls to just $999. Apple says that the 15-inch MacBook Air will be available to buy from the Apple Store and other retailers starting Tuesday, June 13.
