According to the most recent source, the new MacBook Pro family with improved custom processors will be available later this year. Unfortunately, if you were one of the anxious people who expected to see a release in October, that is not going to happen; however, this does not indicate that Apple won’t reveal them soon.The updated MacBook Pro is expected to be released in November, although Apple is unlikely to have a separate event for these models.
Notable Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman startled subscribers with an early ‘Power On’ update, speculating that the new MacBook Pro models integrated with the M2 Pro and M2 Max Chipsets may be available in November.
Apple will not likely have a separate event for the iPad Pro and MacBook Pro M2 versions because neither will include any major new features. Instead, the company will continue issuing press releases and expanding upon the information provided in those publications. This might imply that the M2 Pro and M2 Max featured within the new MacBook Pro models will not be mass manufactured using TSMC’s 3nm design but rather on the same 5nm process utilized for the M2.
Considering the above information is true, we may anticipate a significant performance bump from both the 16-inch and 14-inch MacBook Pro models, with the top-tier M2 Max believed to offer a configuration of up to a 12-core CPU and 38-core GPU. The M1 Max has a 10-core CPU and a 32-core GPU. The current models’ ports and the same keyboard and physical function keys are likely to be preserved, which explains why Apple is not expected to conduct a complete event for this release.
