Apple M2 Chip: Apple is likely to release many Macs this year, according to a recent report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who lists nine Macs as well as some specifics on the CPUs that would power these new Mac models. These new Macs will be available with Apple’s recently released Mac Studio. Here are the specifics you should be aware of.
Leaked 2022 Mac Roadmap
According to Gurman, Apple will soon release the next-generation M2 chip, which might have Max and Pro variations, as was the case with the first-generation M1 processors.
The speculated MacBook Air and entry-level MacBook Pro will most likely be powered by the M2 processor. This runs counter to everything we’ve heard thus far. Previously, the updated MacBook Air was supposed to have an M1 processor.

There will also be a Mac Mini and a Mac Pro, both powered by the M2 processor. The chip’s specifications aren’t known yet, but it might have a 10-core GPU as well as a variety of speed and efficiency enhancements.
Apple is also rumored to release 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, which will most likely be powered by the M2 Pro and M2 Max CPUs. Apple M2 Max chip might include 12 CPU cores and 38 GPU cores. We don’t know much about the M2 Pro, but Gurman suggests that it will also power the Mac Mini.
Furthermore, a new Mac Pro is in the works, which might be powered by the M1 Ultra’s replacement, potentially dubbed the M2 Ultra. However, there is no information on a new iMac model.
These new Macs are likely to hit the market later this year. As a result, don’t anticipate Apple to release them all at the same time. There is currently no information on when the game will be released. It’ll be interesting to see how these 2022 Macs play out, so stay tuned for further information, whether it’s rumours or formal announcements.
