M3 Macbook Air 2023 Rumours and Release Date

Macbook Air M3

As of July 29, 2023, there are several rumors and speculations surrounding the release of the M3 MacBook Air. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is currently developing 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air models with the M3 chip, with an expected release in 2024. However, in 2023, Apple introduced a new 15.3-inch version of the MacBook Air that uses the same design but with a larger display size.

The M3 MacBook Air is anticipated to be a significant upgrade from its predecessors, with a 40% increase in power due to the M3 chip being built using a 3nm process, allowing for more transistors to be fitted onto the same small silicon. This is a substantial improvement from the M2 chip, which was built on a 5nm process. The M3 chip is also expected to offer a 15% speed improvement and up to 30% power reduction, leading to faster performance and longer battery life.

The design of the M3 MacBook Air is expected to remain consistent with the ultra-slim, utilitarian look of the previous models, as Apple tends to stick to certain aesthetics for a couple of generations. The uniform thickness and motif inspired by the 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros have been well-received, and it is hoped that the M3 Air will continue this style.

As for the release date, a report suggested that the new Air might launch in October, alongside a new 13-inch MacBook Pro and iMac. The price of the current MacBook Air starts at $1,199, and it would be surprising if this cost were to increase for the 13-inch model. However, these details are yet to be confirmed by Apple.
