It’s Possible That Apple May Release Brand New MacBook Pro Models in the M2-Series This Week
Apple may release new MacBook Pros early this year, since the company is expected to announce its first virtual reality headset in the spring, between March and April.
Reports say that Apple will show the world its new MacBook Pro laptops this week, most likely on January 17. Mark Gurman, a well-known Apple analyst at Bloomberg, says that the new MacBooks, which are powered by the latest M2-based chipset, will be announced on January 17. Sales could start later this month or in early February.
The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips are said to be part of the new line-up. Apple usually shows off new products on Tuesdays, so this leak fits with the company’s plan. But Apple hasn’t said anything official about it yet.
Gurman says in a tweet, “The new MacBook Pros are coming soon. Apple is making an announcement on January 17, and there will be press briefings later this week and the embargo will be lifted on Monday.” Apple works on the Pacific Standard Time (PST) time zone, so Indian users can expect the news by tomorrow morning, January 18. As was said, the sales may not happen right away.
Apple has been releasing new MacBook Pro 14 and 16 models every March for the past few years. The company is probably changing its launch schedule because it is said that the first Apple VR headset will be announced in the spring, between March and April.
The Apple analyst hasn’t said much about the specs, but the design of the latest version of the MacBook Pro isn’t likely to change much. This is because Apple changed the look and speed of the MacBook Pro 16 and 14 in October 2021.
In March of 2018, the company released the iPhone SE (2022 or iPhone SE 3), iPad Air with M1, M1 Ultra SoC, Mac Studio with M1, and Studio Display. This was followed by a MacBook Pro 13 with an M2 chip in June 2022. However, the laptop did not get a new look.
Since Apple didn’t show off the new Apple Macbook 14 and 16 Pro last year, the early release makes sense. Several news stories have said in the past that the laptop will have new M2 chipsets. If not, the Touch Bar might be taken out of the new laptops and an SDXC card slot put in its place. Apple could add a display called Liquid Retina XDR that uses mini-LED technology.
There are also rumors that Apple is working on a MacBook with an OLED screen, but it may not come out this year. The company is also thinking about making its own mini-LED displays to add to its wide range of products. But it is said that the next-generation Apple Watch Ultra will be the first product to use a mini-LED screen made by Apple. This will be followed by iPhones and MacBooks.
Apple MacBook Pro 14 and 16 (2023 editions) with M2 chips may also support Pro Motion technology, which is a 120Hz refresh. There may still be a notch on the screen, like the one on iPhones.
