According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple plans to release 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 to expect 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 started in October 2021 and featured an all-new design with a notch in the display and the return of an HDMI port, MagSafe and an SD card slot. Several years often pass between the new designs of MacBooks, so that merely better hardware for 2023 is not a big surprise.
Gurman also said that Apple will release a new iMac with an M3 chip “probably no earlier than late 2023,” without giving further details. Apple launched the current iMac 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.
