Everything you need to know about the new MacBook Pro with the best battery life and most powerful chip


Apple unveiled three new Macs powered by supercharged chips, revealing the MacBooks and Mac mini — packed with Apple’s latest processors.

The California tech giant has unveiled the hardware along with the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.

These are custom processors built in-house by Apple, and have been described as “next level”.

Apple usually announces new products that get a lot of attention at a live broadcast event.

But sometimes — new tools are revealed more quietly in an update to the Apple Newsroom website.

There are two new MacBook Pro models, shipped in 14- and 16-inch sizes.

And both can be specified to include the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets.

Apple says it is the “most powerful and efficient chip” for a professional laptop.

Apple explains, “The new generation of Apple’s professional silicon that delivers more energy-efficient performance and battery life for professional users.”

The new MacBook Pro is claimed to be up to 6 times faster than the fastest model with an Intel chip in some tasks.

And Apple says that the battery life has been greatly enhanced thanks to the chip.

The MacBook Pro features a whopping 22 hours of usage per charge.

This is the longest battery life ever offered in a Mac.

“The MacBook Pro with Apple Silicon is a game-changer, enabling professionals to push the boundaries of workflows on the go,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s chief marketing officer. And do things they never thought possible on a laptop.

“MacBook Pro is better than ever, with faster performance, improved connectivity, the longest battery life ever in a Mac, and the best display in a laptop.”

In the US you’ll pay $1,999 for the new 14-inch MacBook Pro and $2,499 for the 16-inch model.

But prices will go up if you add an M2 Max chip or more storage or memory.

UK pricing not yet confirmed.

It also gave Apple a much-needed update to the Mac mini.

The mini desktop can also be equipped with the new M2 Pro chip, in addition to the original M2.

The Quick Mac starts at just $599 / £649.

New M2 Pro chip brings pro-level performance to Mac mini for the first time.

“Enabling users to run high-performance workflows previously unimaginable in such a compact design.”

“With incredible capabilities and a wealth of connectivity in its compact design, Mac mini is used in many places and in many different ways,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Greg Joswiak. “We take it even further with the M2 and M2 Pro.”

“Mac mini with M2 is a great value, with more performance and a lower starting price.

“And for users who need powerful professional performance, Mac mini with M2 Pro is unlike any other desktop computer in its class.”
