The launch of Apple’s M2 Pro-powered MacBook Pro has been given high priority by the company. Apple’s M2 Pro and M2 Max-powered MacBook Pros are expected to be released in the fall of 2022. The enhanced GPU performance of the new chipsets would be the primary goal for the MacBook Pro line.
It is anticipated that the next revamp of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro will not bring with it any additional substantial modifications.
As of 2021, the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models were redesigned by Apple, equipped with the M1 Pro and M1 Max processors, as well as additional connectors including HDMI and MagSafe 3. The M1 chip was first used in these Macs in 2020, a year after they were released. According to reports, the M2 chip will have a more aggressive launch schedule.
Rumors circulate that Apple has set an internal objective of releasing the Max MacBook Pro with M2 and M2 Pro chips in 2022 or 2023, according to noted tipster and Apple journalist Mark Gurman. It is extremely impossible to predict the exact date of the launch because of current supply chain concerns and TSMC’s full production capacity.
As the Cupertino-based tech giant typically refreshes its MacBook Pro line every 1.5 to 2 years at the earliest, an arrival in the spring of 2023 appears more probable. A more aggressive upgrading schedule, on the other hand, may cause this to shift.
Apple just released the M2-powered 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air after announcing it at WWDC22. CPU and GPU performance have increased by 18% and 35%, respectively, on the new chip.
Gurman expects that the M2 Pro and M2 Max CPUs will likewise focus on enhancing GPU performance. Thanks to their selection of the 3nm node fabrication technique, they may also be more efficient in the long run. Only time will tell if the MacBook Pro series will see any other revisions. What we do know, though, is that the 2018 Macs are unlikely to include any big design modifications on the outside.
The M3-powered MacBook Air is expected to be released in 2023, according to reports. It’s possible that Apple may issue the MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max processors earlier than normal this year in order to maintain a large gap between the two releases and avoid competition with its own goods.
