Apple earlier this week launched its new 2022 iPad Pro models with the latest Apple M2 chip, alongside the 10th generation Apple iPad, and a new Apple TV 4K streaming device. Now, the Cupertino-based giant’s next launch is said to be new MacBook Pro laptops with the M2 chip. According to a report, the next macOS update has hinted at the existence of the upcoming MacBook Pro models.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, in his latest report, hints that the macOS Ventura update will also include support for new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models before the end of this year. The report further notes that the new MacBook Pro models may have two CPU variants – the Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max, similar to last year’s M1 Pro and M1 Max on current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models.
The report also hints that Apple might launch an M2-powered Mac Mini alongside the new MacBook Pro models. This year’s Mac Mini, however, may also come with the option for an M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.
The new MacBook Pro and Mac Mini models are said to launch in November this year. While last year’s MacBook Pro models were launched in October, Apple has kept this month for the new iPad Pro models. Earlier, Apple has launched Mac models in November like the 2020 MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini with the M1 chip, or the 16-inch MacBook Pro in 2019 before that.
