WWDC 2023: news, rumors, announcements from Apple’s VR headset event

Apple has unveiled a new 15-inch MacBook Air at its 2023 Worldwide Developers Conference. Apple claims that the device will be “the world’s best 15-inch laptop.” It’ll come with Apple’s M2 chip.

The new model is 11.5mm thick, which Apple says makes it the world’s thinnest 15-inch laptop, and it will weigh just over three pounds. It has two USB-C Thunderbolt ports (supporting up to a 6K external display), a MagSafe charging connector, and a headphone jack and will come in both midnight, starlight, space gray, and silver colors. Its 15.3-inch screen (sporting five-millimeter bezels) has 500 nits of brightness. There’s also a 1080p FaceTime HD webcam, three microphones with “advanced beamforming algorithms”, and six speakers (two teeters and two sets of force-canceling woofers) with spatial audio and Dolby Atmos.
