Apple | New M2 MacBook Pro: If you want more RAM, you’ll have to wait a long time | macbook

Although it is the smaller novelty compared to the MacBook Air that is still to be released, pre-orders of a 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 chip sometimes have to wait until the beginning of August. Only the standard models with 8 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 gigabytes of SSD are shown as immediately available a few days before sales start on Friday, June 24th. Upgrading, on the other hand, costs customers a lot of waiting time.


Apparently, the main memory is the decisive factor here. Tests with different order configurations in the German Apple Online Store show that the highest possible RAM configuration with 24 gigabytes delays delivery until August 9th. It doesn’t matter which SSD is installed. If you want 16 gigabytes of memory, you still have to wait until the beginning of July. The same applies to the sole upgrade of the SSD while maintaining the standard RAM of 8 GB.

The long delivery times do not only affect Apple’s latest MacBook Pro. The larger models with 14-inch and 16-inch screens are generally not available until July at the earliest, but usually not until August. The problems stemming from the supply chain situation and corona lockdowns in China have existed for months. Other products such as the iMac, the Mac Studio and the Studio Display also have long delivery times.

Concern is already growing in forums about the delivery times for the new MacBook Air with an M2 chip. The model has been a bestseller so far. Due to the major changes, demand is likely to be extremely high. Even more than two weeks after the presentation at the WWDC developer conference in early June, Apple has not yet given a specific release date. So far only July is mentioned. A few weeks ago, the IT group also warned its shareholders of possible sales slumps as a result of the supply chain situation.
