After the launch of the MacBook Pro (13″”) and MacBook Air (13”), the company’s 14-and 16-inch models will be subject to revision. Experts predict that the macOS laptops will be M2 Pro and/or M2 Max processors. This is according to Mark Gurman, a well-respected Bloomberg reporter.
Apple is currently hard at work on two new notebooks or their upgrades of the recently introduced M2 processors. The group will follow its plan, remain true to it, and once again offer Pro- and Max variants for its chip for the MacBook Pro models, which are 14-inch and 16 inch, to distinguish itself from entry-level configurations.
Performance improvement, particularly in the graphics area
Gurman expects little to be different from the flagship laptops, other than improved performance. Only last year, the design with a MagSafe connection and display notch was relaunched. The company should also be focusing on improving graphics performance for the Apple M2 Pro, and M2 Max. Apple currently quantifies the upgrade from the regular Apple M1 processor to the M2 processor, which results in an 18% increase in CPU performance and a 35% improvement in GPU performance.
The 14- and 16 inch MacBook Pros ship with 512GB SSDs ex-factory, unlike the MacBook Air 2022 and 13-inch MacBook Pro. Apple could use this to solve the slow SSD problem with base configurations that have 256 GB flash memory. The cheapest models have only one memory chip, and can reduce data rates by as much as 50% in read/write. The recommended Mac configuration’s starting price is 1729 euros. The new Apple MacBook Pro line up will be presented between fall 2022-spring 2023.
