Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) – Apple’s planned 15-inch Mac laptop may not carry MacBook Air branding, analyst says

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) New 15-inch Mac laptop may not be called MacBook Air, top analyst says Ming Chi Kuo.

What happened: Kuo predicts that mass production of the notebook will begin in the fourth quarter of 2023 if everything goes according to Apple’s plans.

The analyst also said that while a larger screen generally consumes more power, the 15-inch laptop could use the same 30W power adapter as the MacBook Air.

why is it important: Kuo’s comments come after an AppleInsider report that quoted analysts as saying Apple may launch a larger-screen 15-inch MacBook Air in 2023 and also refresh the 13-inch MacBook Air.

Kuo said earlier this month that the next MacBook Air will feature an all-new form factor and additional color options, but will ship with an M1 chip instead of an M2 chip.

Bloomberg Columnist Marc Gurman predicted that MacBook Air will get the biggest redesign in 2022, with a new M2 chip.

Apple continues to focus on the autonomy of the components of the device and moves away from the use of chips manufactured by Intel Corp. (NASDAQ: INTC).

price action: Apple shares closed up 2.3% in Thursday’s regular trading session at $174.07, but fell 0.1% in the after-hours session at $173.83, according to Benzinga Pro data.
