Apple to launch updated MacBook Pro “within the coming months,” says Gurman
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman is out with the latest edition of his weekly Power On newsletter, reporting that Apple’s rumored new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are slated to launch “within the coming months,” most likely before the end of the year.
According to Gurman, the new machines will come in M2 Pro and M2 Max configurations. The M2 Max will reportedly have 12 CPU cores—made up of 8 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores—and 38 graphics cores.
The machine will continue to come with up to 64 gigabytes of memory, according to Gurman, and those options will be available across both screen sizes.
Respected industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has previously shared that he expects Apple’s next-generation 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models to feature minor upgrades over the current M1 Pro and M1 Max machines in Apple’s lineup, besides upgraded chips.
Last month, Kuo said “The main upgrade of the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros is only the adoption of new processors,” with the new machines not expected to offer any substantial changes, as expected given that the MacBook Pro was fully redesigned last year, featuring an iPhone-style notch, MagSafe charging, a Liquid Retina XDR display, an HDMI port, and more.
