After reports of iPhone SE, iPad Air and Mac Pro updates planned for March, Asian suppliers are now bringing a new entry-level model of the Macbook Pro with an M2 chip into play.
To speculation, according to which Apple is igniting a veritable product firework display this year, the reports with details about the planned model range are gradually piling up. So reported Mark Gurman recently citing those in the know that the company is planning its first product launch of the year as early as early March, specifically on or about March 8th. The focus would be updated versions of iPhone SE and iPad Air and possibly a new Mac.
The usually well-informed Asian industry service Digitimes has now added the presentation of a new Apple notebook to the rumor mill: In order to meet the expected demand for the new MacBook Pro, which is due to be launched in early March, the notebook suppliers had their production lines during of the week-long Lunar New Year festival, it was said.
The idea of a MacBook Pro sounds surprising at first, since Apple only released new 14 and 16 inch models with the revised M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets in the fall. According to the Digitimes report, however, the update only affects the MacBook Pro 13 from 2020, which is still equipped with the M1 chip. In addition, updates to the entry-level device should be relatively moderate. With the exception of the processor, most of the components would share the same specs as the existing model, the sources said.
The bottom line is that the new MacBook Pro 13 would fit in well with the other redesigned entry-level models iPhone SE and iPad Air fit: According to Bloomberg report, the new iPhone SE will receive 5Gsupport, a faster processor and an improved camera, while the design will be similar to the April 2020 version. The new iPad, on the other hand, is said to be an update of the Air model – equipped with a faster processor and – optionally – 5G.
