15-inch MacBook Air
For the first time ever, Apple is reportedly set to announce a 15-inch MacBook Air notebook. Up to now, the range has always been stuck on 13-inch models but Apple is set to change that this year. It will also come with an M2 chip and a display resolution of 3024 x 1964.
iOS, iPadOS and macOS
Apple will undoubtedly announce iOS 17 this evening which will come with a range of new features. Reports claim that the software won’t overhaul anything and instead focus on quality-of-life changes. There are also rumours of a new Personal Voice feature that lets users create a synthetic voice within 15 minutes of training.
There’s also the rumour of a mental health journaling app for iPhone where users can create journal entries each day.
