Here Are All the M3 Macs Still Expected This Year

Earlier this week, Apple announced new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air models, the first Mac updates of the year featuring M3 series chips. But there are other Macs in Apple’s lineup still to be updated to the latest M3 processors. So, where do the Mac mini, Mac Studio, and Mac Pro fit into Apple’s M3 roadmap for the year ahead? Here’s what the latest rumors say. Mac Mini Apple announced ‌M2‌ and ‌M2‌ Pro Mac mini models in January 2023, which at the time of writing is over 400 days ago. Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman said in July that he believes a new Mac mini won’t emerge until late 2024 at the earliest, and we haven’t heard any other rumors that move the dial since then. On the other hand, Apple may choose not to upgrade the Mac mini this year and skip the M3 entirely. Approximately 26 months passed between the launch of the M1 Mac mini and the update to the M2 Mac mini​​. Going forward, perhaps the company has an 18-month upgrade cycle …

Brevian is a no-code enterprise platform for building AI agents

Sunnyvale-based Brevian wants to make it easier for business users to build custom AI agents. Currently, the company is focused on support teams and security analysts — areas where both the use cases and training sets are well defined — but plans to expand to other areas over time. The company is coming out of stealth today and announcing a $9 million seed funding round. Brevian, which styles its name as BREV/ΛN, was founded by Vinay Wagh (CEO) and Ram Swaminathan (CTO), who came to this startup journey from very different directions. Wagh was previously a product director at Databricks and the head of products at Bracket Computing. During his time at Databricks, he worked on getting the company ready to sell to large enterprises and then launch its serverless product, Databricks SQL Serverless. “That went GA in February, and I was looking at everything going on, Wagh said. “When I saw ChatGPT and other things, for me, it was just: how is this applicable in the enterprise? Instantly, our alignment was that all these missing …

Here Are All the New M3 Apple Macs Expected This Year

Apple in 2023 launched an M3-powered 24-inch iMac, as well as new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M3 series chips. But the rest of Apple’s Mac lineup is still to be updated to the latest M3 processors. Now that 2023 is over, attention naturally turns to the other Macs in the company’s lineup and where they fit into Apple’s M3 roadmap for the year ahead. Here’s what the latest rumors say. M3 MacBook Air Apple sells three versions of MacBook Air: A cheaper previous-generation 13-inch model with M1 chip, and 13-inch and 15-inch models equipped with the newer M2 chip. The question is, when will Apple discontinue the ‌M1‌ ‌MacBook Air‌ and replace its top-of-the-line 13-inch and 15-inch machines with M3 equivalents? The existing 15-inch ‌MacBook Air‌ arrived in June 2023, which is not that long ago in terms of Mac update cycles. However, Apple released the ‌M2‌ 13-inch ‌‌MacBook Air‌ back in June 2022. It is now the oldest Mac in Apple’s current crop, having not been updated in over 550 days. …
