According to independent sources via 9to5Mac, Apple’s rumored upcoming 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Airs will both feature M3 chips. The sources also indicate that Apple is working on an updated 13-inch MacBook Pro, also set to feature an M3 chipset. This follows Mark Gurman’s recent statement regarding two new MacBook Air models coming by this summer.
According to these new rumors, the new 13-inch MacBook Air (codenamed J513) and 15-inch MacBook Air (codenamed J515) will be launched together and will both feature entry-level M3 chips. Just like the M1 and M2 chips, these will feature 8-core CPUs.
