Apple Speculated to Launch M3 SoC by Second Half of 2023

Apple is anticipated to release several unique chipsets later this year, including the M3. The new SoC, which is expected to succeed the M2, will probably power a variety of tiny form factor devices and, according to one person, will debut in the second part of this year. 

Despite the lack of a firm release date provided by an H2 2023 launch, @appleakation’s forecast suggests that the aforementioned time frame is when we may anticipate seeing upgraded MacBook Air variants. In the following months, we will learn more about whether Apple plans to replace the M2 MacBook Pro with the updated M3.

It was previously reported that Apple had finished the M3’s core design, with the specialized silicon slated to debut in the second half of 2023. Since Apple made its formal announcements for the M2 and the updated MacBook Air in June of last year, an event may take place in the fourth quarter of 2023. The tech behemoth could employ the same chassis again this year, but it could also release a bigger model with a 15.5-inch screen.

The M3 will be released after Apple reveals the M2 Pro and M2 Max, according to the @appleakation-predicted timeline. We also believe that the M3, which is expected to employ TSMC’s 3nm architecture, will be announced after the A17 Bionic since the company has a unique Mac event in October. Regarding performance, Mark Liu, chairman of TSMC, said that the new 3nm process would increase power efficiency by up to 35 percent at the company’s formal announcement.

Surprisingly, the CEO avoided discussing performance improvements, leading some to speculate that Apple may sell the M3 similarly to the A17 Bionic by emphasizing how much battery life the chipset can provide. That’s not necessarily a terrible thing, but it does show that buyers who presently possess an Apple device with an M2 SoC may want to wait before upgrading.
