According to Mark Gurman by Bloomberg, Apple plans to launch new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets “early next year.” The notebooks were originally scheduled to hit the market later this year. According to reports, however, there were internal delays.
No major changes are expected for the next 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models beyond updated processors and potentially faster RAM. The current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M1 Pro and M1 Max chips were released in October 2021 and featured an all-new design with a notches in the display and the return of an HDMI connection, MagSafe and an SD card slot. Between the new design pass at MacBooks often several years, so only better hardware for 2023 is not a big surprise.
Gurman also said that a new iMac with an M3 chip will launch “probably no earlier than late 2023,” without giving further details. The current iMac was launched in April 2021 with the M1 chip and a sleek, colorful design. Apple also plans to skip releasing an iMac with the M2 chip, Gurman said. He added that while Apple remains interested in a new iMac Pro with Apple processors, there have been delays internally.
Apple also continues to test new Mac mini models with M2 and M2 Pro chipsets, Gurman said, but did not share a timeframe for launch.
