Apple to continue selling 2020 M1 MacBook Pro despite launch of new 2022 M2 model
Apple has announced that it will continue to sell the 2020 M1 MacBook Pro, despite the launch of the new 2022 M2 model on Monday.
Announced at WWDC alongside the next-generation macOS update – macOS Ventura, Apple’s new 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 is a relatively minor update compared to the new M2 MacBook Air. Unlike the new 2022 MacBook Air, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 lacks any major design changes, MagSafe charging, new color options or notable new features, keeping it as close as possible to the 2020 model it now succeeds.
The 2020 M1 MacBook Pro is now priced at $999, compared to the new M2 model at $1,299 (US) and $1,199 (US) for education.
Apple is yet to confirm an exact release date for the new M2 MacBook Pro, simply stating that the machine will be available next month.
