Apple recently unveiled the Apple M2, launching the second generation of the Apple M series. Only the Apple M2 is available, but the company plans to keep the lineup established with the Apple M1, M1 Pro, Max, and Ultra. According to Bloomberg analyst Mark Gurman, the company will introduce the Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max chips with the Apple MacBook Pro this fall. The analyst also expects the Cupertino-based company to launch multiple MacBooks with the Apple M2 series between late 2022 and 2023.
Apple M2 Pro and Max Macbook Pro are coming soon
14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with more powerful Apple M2 processors are already in development. He says the overall design and functionality of the machines will remain the same. Apple redesigned the MacBook Pro to bring more ports, a MagSafe charger, a better screen, a better webcam, and more. These new models will be equipped with the Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max processors. According to the journalist and analyst, the new Apple M2 variants will likely emphasize graphics powers.
According to early benchmark tests, the Apple M2-equipped MacBook Pro delivers approximately 11.56% better single-core performance than the Apple M1 chip. Multi-core performance is improved with 19.45% higher performance, but it lacks graphics support. The M2 Pro and M2 Max will focus on the graphics side, this could be useful for professional users who need the best performance in demanding tasks like video editing, programming, etc.
According to Gurman, the Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max versions of the MacBook Pro will see release between Fall 2022 and Spring 2023. However, he says it’s not easy to predict exactly when these products will arrive. After all, Apple faces constant supply chain challenges. There is no guarantee that the situation will clear up all of a sudden.
