Long-rumoured 15-inch MacBook Air finally officially revealed at WWDC 2023

The larger-screened Air has been long awaited by fans of the form factor

Apple’s thin-and-light MacBook Air series of laptops have proven to be incredibly popular over the years. At WWDC 2023, the Cupertino, California-based company announced the widely anticipated 15-inch variant of the form factor.

Besides the obvious inclusion of a larger 15-inch display size, the laptop is similar to the existing 13-inch M2 model. It includes the same design language as its smaller relative and the M2 chip.

During its WWDC 2023 keynote, Apple boasted about the 15-inch MacBook Air’s 11.5 mm thinness, making it “the thinnest 15-inch laptop.” It weighs 3lbs and comes in four colours: ‘Midnight,’ ‘Starlight,’ ‘Silver’ and ‘Space Grey.’

Other additions include a 5mm screen border, a six-speaker array, a 1080p webcam, and MagSafe charging.

Apple also says that the new Air is 12 times faster than the fastest Intel-based Air while including 18 hours of battery life.

The 15-inch MacBook Air is available to order now starting at $1,749 and releases next week.
