Apple was earlier expected to release new Macs in the Fall, but it now appears that this won’t be happening. Mark Gurman has hinted at a 2023 launch for a Mac refresh, so we might not see any new Macs this year.
No Apple new Macs in 2022!
Mark Gurman, via his latest Power newsletter, suggests that the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro will be upgraded in the first half of 2023. The upgrade will likely launch in March. Another reliable report corroborates this information.
Apple’s newest MacBooks will come with the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. In addition to the M2 MacBook Pro released last year, which has a 13.3-inch display.
As for the 2023 MacBook Pro, all we know is there will be an XDR screen, a notch, better battery life, and MagSafe charging.
Tech analyst Gurman believes that Apple aims to introduce the upgraded MacBook Pro models in the first quarter of 2023. He says “I’m told that Apple is aiming to introduce the upgraded models—including M2-based versions of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros—in the first quarter of calendar 2023 and has tied the launches to the upcoming macOS Ventura 13.3 and iOS 16.3. Those software updates are expected to debut between early February and the beginning of March.“
The Mac mini is getting a new addition in the M2 chip, while the M2 Pro-powered Mac Mini is slated to be announced. Apple also plans to introduce iOS 16.2 and iPadOS 16.2 at some point soon.
Apple traditionally releases new Macs in the March-June timeline. However, it’s still being determined if these statements will come true. It makes sense to wait for an official statement before we make any assumptions. In the meantime, stay up-to-date on future Apple products.
