The laptop with six speakers will start at a retail price of $1,299 and be available next week. The price of the 13-inch MacBook Air will drop to $1,099.

Apple updated its Mac Studio desktop machine, saying its M2 Ultra chip can process artificial intelligence work that rival chips do not have enough memory to handle.

Apple’s Mac lineup has experienced a revival since it started using its own chips in 2020, but in recent quarters sales have slumped along with the broader PC market.
