According to Young, Apple is planning to launch a 15-inch MacBook Air in 2023. The company is expected to release new MacBook devices powered by the M2 chip this year. Young added that the screen of the entry-level iPad planned for 2023 will be “slightly larger” than the existing 10.2-inch iPad. Last year, Apple launched the iPad Pro 2021 with the M1 chip onboard. The company recently unveiled the iPad Air 5, powered by the M1 chip. It remains to be seen whether the entry-level iPad planned for 2023 will be equipped with an M-series chip.
