According to reports from iMore, Apple could release a 15-inch MacBook Air next year. The company has been talking about making a larger model of the Air for years, and it seems those discussions are yielding tangible results.

The new information comes from analyst Ross Young and the latest Display Supply Chain Consultants Quarterly Advanced IT Display Report. The report sets out a roadmap for several Apple products, including a 15-inch MacBook Air in 2023.

We just published our Apple iPad and Mac roadmaps in our Quarterly Advanced IT Display Report, and we’re seeing new screen sizes for the iPad and MacBook Air next year. Will likely be included in our talks at the SID/DSCC Business Conference on 5/9 for those interested.

That’s not the only news in the report, either. Apple’s soon-to-be-released MacBook Air may also have a larger screen while maintaining a similar form factor. That’s because the MacBook Air will likely have thinner bezels like the latest MacBook Pros before it. There are rumors that it even has a notch.

The news follows rumors of the new MacBook Air, including a pretty realistic rendering from ZONEofTECH.

The entry-level iPad is also getting a makeover, according to DSCC. It would have a larger 10-inch screen and the same design language as the iPad Air, iPad Pro and every other Apple product today.

Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) is a group of supply chain experts specializing in display-based products. As such, they are very familiar with what goes on at the back of many manufacturers. Their reports are a solid indication of the direction a product is moving in.

Apple has aggressively revamped its Mac lineup over the past year. After years of anemic innovations, the company has kicked into overdrive after its M1 chips took the computing world by storm.

After the initial release of M1 devices, the 24-inch M1 iMac came a few months later, complete with several new color options. Last week, Apple announced the Mac Studio, a powerful PC in an upgraded Mac Mini package. Apple isn’t done yet, with the new Mac Pro and MacBook Air coming somewhere down the line.
