What to expect from first 15-inch MacBook Air
It'll be the biggest consumer laptop yet from Apple.
Over the years, I’ve owned several MacBook Airs. I’ve always loved them. The machine’s portability is its killer feature, of course. But now, with Apple silicon, performance is fantastic, too.
Apple’s chips are so powerful, even a consumer-oriented machine like the Air can perform like a champ.
Apple is poised to release a new version with a 15-inch screen in as little as two weeks. It’ll be the biggest non-pro MacBook the company has ever made. Here’s everything we know about the big-screen MacBook Air ahead of its launch.
Also in today’s newsletter:
Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro are finally available for iPad.
We have a great 30% off deal on Luminar Neo, the highly praised photo editor that uses AI to make stunning images. Much easier to use than Lightroom, it’s perfect for newcomers.
Talking of AI, Adobe’s Firefly adds AI image generation to Photoshop.
And if you want a MacBook Air right now, the M1 version just hit its lowest price on Amazon — just $799.

Tweetz o’ the day
Was in DC last Friday for a Saturday wedding, return on Sunday. Apple Watch Ultra using Low Power Mode lasted 96 hours before hitting 0% battery. If I didn’t use LPM, it would not have lasted the whole trip. Ultra owners, how has your battery life been holding up?

One more thing ...
It's hard to tell with these internet startups if they're really interested in building companies or if they're just interested in the money. I can tell you, though: If they don't really want to build a company, they won't luck into it.
