M3 Chip Production to Begin in 2H23 [Kuo]

Posted April 20, 2023 at 2:45pm by iClarified
Apple is set to begin M3 chip production in the second half of 2023, according to a new report from TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Corroborating an earlier leak, Kuo confirmed that the upcoming 15-inch MacBook expected at WWDC 2023 will be a MacBook Air and will feature an M2 chip.

Prediction update and revision
1. The new 15" MacBook model should be named MacBook Air.
2. To reiterate, the upcoming 15" MacBook Air will feature the M2 series and offer two processor spec options. However, two options are more likely to be M2 with different cores (similar to the M2 13" MacBook Air).
3. Mass production of M3 chip is anticipated to begin in 2H23, slightly ahead of M3 Pro and M3 Max.
4. The shipment estimation for the 15" MacBook Air in 2023 is 5-6 million units. The peak shipments for EMS and components are expected during late 3Q23 and early Q3 2023, respectively.
