The rumor mill about Apple launching M2-powered Macs this November was churning, but now it seems we’ll have to wait until next year.
Apple confirms USB-C is coming to iPhone: ‘We have no choice’
According to Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman, Apple isn’t planning to release new versions of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros until the beginning of 2023. Those hoping for new Macs might have to wait until March, per Gurman’s prediction. Both Gurman and Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo said the new MacBook Pros will have the latest M2 chip and that we might get a new Mac mini also upgraded with an M2 chip.
Insiders initially expected a third round of product launches to follow Apple’s September iPhone 14 event and October M2 iPad Pro, entry-level iPad, and Apple TV 4K announcement. But that is no longer the case. During last Thursday’s quarterly earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook effectively confirmed this by saying the product line is “set” for the rest of the year. While Apple reported strong earnings this past quarter, unlike Meta, Amazon, and Snapchat which underperformed. But the tech giant is not immune to macroeconomic and supply chain woes, which possibly accounts for the delay.
