Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is just around the corner, and there is a lot of excitement about what the company might announce. In a recent tweet, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said that Apple is planning to unveil “several” new Macs at the event.
Gurman has previously reported on several of the new Macs that are rumored to be in the works. These include a new 15-inch MacBook Air with the M2 chip, a pair of high-end Macs with the M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips, and a refreshed iMac with the M3 chip.
The new MacBook Air is expected to be a major upgrade over the current model. It will reportedly have a larger, brighter screen, a thinner and lighter design, and a new keyboard with MagSafe charging.
The high-end Macs are also expected to be significant upgrades. The M2 Max chip is said to be twice as powerful as the M1 Max chip, and the M2 Ultra chip is said to be four times as powerful. These chips could make the new Macs some of the most powerful laptops on the market.
The refreshed iMac is also expected to be a welcome update. It has been two years since the last iMac was released, and it is long overdue for a refresh. The new iMac is expected to have a more modern design and a faster processor.
- Price and availability: Apple has not yet announced the price or availability of the new Macs. However, it is likely that the new MacBook Air will be priced similarly to the current model, which starts at $999. The high-end Macs and the refreshed iMac are likely to be more expensive.
- New features: In addition to the new chips, the new Macs are also expected to have a number of new features. These features could include:
- A new design: The new MacBook Air is expected to have a new design that is similar to the current MacBook Pro. This could include a thinner and lighter body, a larger screen, and a new keyboard.
- More ports: The high-end Macs are expected to have more ports than the current models. This could include Thunderbolt 4 ports, HDMI ports, and SD card readers.
- Improved battery life: The new Macs are expected to have improved battery life than the current models.
- Software support: The new Macs will all run macOS Ventura, which is the latest version of Apple’s operating system. macOS Ventura includes a number of new features, such as Stage Manager, Continuity Camera, and Live Text.
