Apple may release MacBook Pro M2 on this date


Apple won’t release any new Macs before the end of the year, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gorman. The company planned to announce new M2 versions of the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro “early this fall,” but Apple aims to deliver them in the first quarter of 2023. Gorman adds that the launch will likely coincide with the release of macOS Ventura 13.3.

“Apple has rarely released new products in January or February in recent years, so I expect new Macs to be announced by the first half of March,” he wrote. In light of Apple’s recent history of releasing new Macs during that month, including this year’s Mac Studio.”

Gorman points to Apple’s recent earnings call for supporting evidence. Earlier this week, Tim Cook told analysts that the company’s holiday product line was “selected”, Engadget reported.

Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri offered a stronger assertion, noting that he expects Mac revenue to decline significantly in December, in part due to the lack of new MacBook Pros to boost sales.

The new MacBook Pro will feature the same design as the current 2021 models.

The main change Apple has planned is the inclusion of the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets. According to Gorman, the M2 Max will have up to 12 CPU cores and 38 GPU cores.

While Apple users don’t expect any more hardware from the company before the end of the year, the company is still working on new software.

Gorman says that iOS 16.2 and iPadOS 16.2 will arrive by mid-December, the company is currently testing those updates among developers.
