Apple could launch MacBook Pros with M2 chips in the fall


Apple Inc AAPL MacBook Pro laptops with M2 Pro and M2 Max processors could arrive in a few months.

What happened: The Tim Cook-led tech giant has a fast schedule for the two processors, according to Apple watcher Mark Gurman, AppleInsider reported.

The M2 Pro and M2 Max chips could appear in 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models as early as fall or as early as 2023.

The two notebooks aren’t expected to see many cosmetic changes, and the designs are expected to “stay roughly the same,” Gurman said, AppleInsider reported.

Why it matters: If an update for the 14- and 16-inch models comes in the fall, the existing M1 Pro and M1 Max models of the two notebooks may be out of date earlier, Apple Insider noted.

The M1 Pro and M1 Max models were introduced in Fall 2021 and replacement chips would mean they will be obsolete within a year rather than the usual 1.5-year or two-year cycle for such devices.

Previously, Gurman said that the M2 Pro has 12 CPU cores and 16 graphics cores, and the M2 Max comes with 12 CPU cores and 32 graphics cores.

The Apple-focused journalist had said in March that he expects to launch at least two or three new Macs by mid-2022.

Price action: On Friday, Apple stock closed 1.15% higher at $150.17 in the regular session, according to data from Benzinga Pro.

Benzinga’s Take: Ever since Apple announced the M2 series chips at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, there has been a lot of buzz around the launch of new MacBook models. Taiwan-based Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects a new 15-inch MacBook to go into mass production in the first half of 2023. Gurman’s latest predictions add to expectations around the MacBook line.
