Apple is bringing up to speed to release a few MacBooks with an M2 chip in the latter part of 2022- as reported by Mark Gurman from Bloomberg. Gurman believes that the company would be debuting a 13-inch MacBook Pro, a 24-inch iMac, a Mac Mini, and an upholstered MacBook Air- all of which would be outfitted with the latest chip.
M2 Chip Coming Through With the New MacBooks
Interestingly the company hasn’t dropped any hints about the new M2 chip, but Gurman is of the opinion that the CPU will be a tad faster than the M1’s and that it will surely share the same eight-core architecture. Its graphics cores, however, may seemingly jump from seven to eight to nine- and could even go as high as 10. The next year will see the company releasing the Pro and the Max versions of the M2 chip- just like they did with the previous chip- as well as bringing out a new M3 chip.
It was in 2020 when Apple decided to announce its very first in-house M1 chip and quite a few months since the M1 Pro and the M1 Max debut. As Apple continues its research and development in the field of chips, it has a few other MacBooks that are ready to come out with the M2 chip- which would simply entail a shift from Intel Silicons. Gurman is of the opinion that a larger iMac Pro would definitely come with the new M1 Pro and the M1 Max chip options in order to replace the current 27-inch iMac Pro, along with a smaller version that would come with the equivalent of either a couple or four different M1 Max chips.
Along with the M2 chips. Gurman believes Apple would also be launching new Macs in March- and also in the months of May or June this year. Apple has already tipped to reveal a 5G iPhone SE, a 5G iPad Air, and a new Mac with the latest chip in place.
