With the M2 chip in the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the revised MacBook Air, Apple has moved into the second generation of its Apple silicon chips for the Mac. If the company stays true to its pace of development, the high-end versions of the M2 will soon be available. According to Bloomberg, the time has come as early as autumn – then the MacBook Pro (14/16 inch) and the Mac mini could introduce the M2 Pro and M2 Max.
High-end variants of the M2 chip
In his “power on‘ newsletter focuses on Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman Apple’s latest financial results. He explains that the Mac’s underperforming results are due to the launch of the new M2 models. A delay in the launch caused a “significant pause in sales” that impacted sales for the period.
Naturally, the forthcoming fourth quarter makes Gurman optimistic. Here, Mac sales are expected to increase sharply and the sales figures to recover accordingly. In addition to the M2 MacBook Air that has already been released, the introduction of new Mac mini and high-end MacBook Pro models in particular should ensure stronger sales figures. Both the next Mac mini and the high-end MacBook Pros are said to be based on an evolution of the M2 chip: the M2 Pro and M2 Max. Gurman also mentions a new Mac Pro, iMac and a 15-inch MacBook Air, which are expected in the will be on the market next year.
Previous reports of the upcoming 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro updates have indicated that they will be internal improvements rather than major design changes.
