It looks like Apple has finished launching products in 2022. After the iPhone and iPad update, all eyes were on the Mac updates, which were rumored to be released in November of this year. However, it seems more and more that we won’t see more Mac releases in 2022.
Apple journalist Mark Gorman stated in his latest Power On newsletter that we won’t see more Mac releases in 2022, with M2-based Mac updates coming in 2023. It appears that the M2-based 14-inch and 16-inch family may The MacBook Pro will be the first to arrive.
14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro update likely to arrive in March 2022
Gurman explained that we’ll see all of Apple’s new Macs starting in early 2023. And he had an insight into the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. he wrote, “I’ve been told that Apple aims to introduce upgraded models — including the M2-based versions of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro — in the first quarter of calendar 2023 and has linked the launches to upcoming macOS Ventura 13.3 and iOS 16.3. These software updates are expected to start between early February and early March.“
The calculated guess here is that since Apple rarely releases any releases in January or February, but mostly in March, we can expect to see these new Macs in March 2023. This is in line with a recent MacBook Pro rumor that said a MacBook Pro update would arrive In 2023. It would also make sense that new MacBook Pro models won’t arrive in 2022, given that the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are still faster than the M2, and the urgency of the upgrade isn’t that great.
Gorman also provided an update for the Mac mini saying “The new Mac mini is still in development, and the company continues to test versions with the same M2 chip as the 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, as well as the M2 Pro chip, which increases the number of CPUs and graphics. If Apple really does release the M2 Pro, we can probably expect the company to finish off the Intel model that is still available.“
Gurman also said that the update to Apple’s best Mac, the Mac Pro, will also arrive in 2023, missing Apple’s two-year transition timeline.
