The pair of new MacBook Airs come just a few months after Apple rolled out new iMac and MacBook Pros with M3 chips. They also join the growing list of recent products the company has launched, including the iPhone 15, Apple Watch Series 9 and Vision Pro headset.

In the first quarter of Apple’s fiscal year, the Mac segment and its $7.78 billion in net sales represented roughly 6.5% of the tech giant's overall net sales. Its iPhone net sales, at $69.7 billion for the quarter, made up the largest portion.
