Last year, Apple introduced the first-ever MacBook Air featuring an M2 processor. Compared to the M1 processor, the chip offers faster CPU and GPU performance. Furthermore, it was anticipated that the corporation will sell improved M2 chip versions in the latter part of last year; nevertheless, it chose to release the machines in the early months of 2023. The MacBook Pro M2 Pro and M2 Max variants have “once again been delayed.”
Apple’s much-awaited M2 Pro and M2 Max MacBook Pro models have reportedly been delayed, according to DigiTimes. In late October, Mark Gurman predicted that the business will introduce the new computers in the first quarter of 2023. Gurman asserts in his most recent forecast that the new MacBook Pro models would debut in the first half of 2023. If Apple decides not to release the gadgets in the first quarter, we could see them during the June WWDC event.
Apple’s M2 MacBook Pro Won’t Have a Significant Performance Gap from Predecessors
The current model’s styling will be carried over to the M2 Pro and M2 Max MacBook Pro variants. The new processors that will give improved CPU and GPU capabilities are the only change you can anticipate. However, there won’t be much of a performance difference when compared to the M1 Pro and M1 Max CPUs. It is unknown whether the 3nm technology will be used for the M2 Pro and M2 Max processors. The timeline for the release of the new MacBook Pro models is not yet mentioned in the article.
To eliminate the shortages, Apple is always trying to enhance its production and supply chain. The report also states that the first-quarter decrease in MacBook shipments will range from 40% to 50%. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models cost more than any other MacBook that Apple has ever offered. Users who are switching from M1 Pro or M1 Max chips may now decide without upgrading to the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. Users would also choose the current MacBook Pro models because of the lack of design variety.
With frequent delays in releasing its new MacBook Pro models, Apple has once again let down its customers. Keep checking back as we update you on the situation’s development.
