If Apple offers a 30W power adapter with a new notebook, that might be surprising; you’ll get a more prominent display with less power consumption. According to Kuo, if everything goes to plan, Apple might launch this new 15-inch Notebook later in 2023.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple has been working on two different versions of the MacBook Air for 2023, and the 2022’s model might have the single-size option, come with the M2 chip, and a brand new design.
