Are you waiting for an even more powerful Apple laptop? Well, you might have to hold on a little longer. Apple’s M3 MacBook Pro may arrive at the beginning of 2024, with the M3 MacBook Air likely to follow a few months later. That’s according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who had predicted that a MacBook Air with the new chip could appear as early as October.
Gurman reports the 13-inch and 15-inch M3 MacBook Airs are now in the engineering verification test (EVT) stage. M3 MacBook Pros, on the other hand, are further along in the process and “nearing mass production.” If you want even more power, MBPs with M3 Pro and M3 Max are also progressing, so expect to see them in the first half of 2024.

It even helps the handling.
It was over Elon Musk’s return-to-work policy.
The National Labor Relations Board has accused X (formerly Twitter) of retaliating against software engineer Yao Yue for attempting to organize workers in the wake of the new policy. After Musk gave then-Twitter employees an ultimatum in November 2022 to return to the office, Yue urged others not to resign in response but instead “let him fire you.” Yue was fired five days after tweeting about it and writing a similar post on Slack. In terminating her, the complaint filed by a San Francisco branch of the NLRB alleges the company violated federal labor laws by “interfering with, restraining and coercing employees” exercising protected rights.
