Kuo: New 15-inch MacBook with M2 and M2 Pro chip options planned for 2023

Apple is planning a new 15-inch MacBook model that could launch around the second quarter of 2023 or later, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said today.


in one tweetAccording to Kuo, the notebook may be available with both M2 and M2 Pro chip options. Kuo previously claimed the new 15-inch model might not be branded as a MacBook Air, but gave no further details on a possible naming.

For the new 15-inch MacBook, configurations with the M2 chip would come bundled with Apple’s new dual-port 35W power adapter, while configurations with the M2 Pro chip would come with a more powerful 67W adapter, according to Kuo . These power supplies are already options for the new M2-powered MacBook Air, due out next month.

Kuo also said he hasn’t heard any plans for the previously rumored 12-inch MacBook. Last week, BloombergMark Gurman reported that Apple is considering launching a new 12-inch notebook in late 2023 or early 2024. Gurman said it was unclear whether the notebook would be a low-end MacBook or a high-end MacBook Pro.

Rumors have surfaced in recent weeks of several new MacBook and iPad sizes planned for 2023 and beyond. Gurman recently reported that Apple is working on a new 15-inch MacBook Air, for example, which could end up being the machine Kuo is referring to. As device launch approaches, details should become clearer.
