Apple likely to launch new M2-based MacBook Pro models early next year: report

San Francisco: The much-anticipated 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros from tech giant Apple based on the M2 are likely to be launched in the first half of 2023. According to the famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the future MacBook Pro with new processors will go into mass production in the fourth quarter of this year. Apple employees have reportedly launched a petition against the firm’s return to work.

“The new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with new processors will enter mass production in 4Q22,” Kuo wrote on the microblogging platform Twitter. “Given TSMC’s guidance that a 3nm processor will contribute to revenue from 1H23, the processors in the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models may still adopt the 5nm advanced node,” Kuo added.

M2 products currently include the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the updated MacBook Air. It was previously reported that MacBook Pro models equipped with the M2 Pro and M2 Max will arrive by the fall.

The new Mac models will offer better internal specifications rather than receiving major facelifts. On the Mac side, Apple posted $7.4 billion in revenue despite supply constraints and headwinds in the June quarter. Mac revenue fell 10 percent due to supply chain constraints and unfavorable exchange rates.
