Until late 2023, it seems that Apple, headquartered in Cupertino, has no plans to introduce a new 24-inch MacBook. Although Apple introduced the 24-inch iMac in May 2021, it has not received any significant changes to its specifications since its introduction.
Mark Gurman of Bloomberg claims that Apple will hold off upgrading the iMac with the M2 processor until the arrival of the as-yet-unannounced M3 chip.
MacBook Air Release Delayed
According to MacRumors, Apple’s M3 processor will be made using TSMC’s newest 3nm technology, which will result in increased performance and reduced power consumption. A new MacBook Air said to debut in the second half of 2023, and maybe future models of the 13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini, are also possible recipients of the M3 processor, according to the source. The M2 chip, on the other hand, is manufactured using TSMC’s upgraded 5nm production method.
Apple’s 27-inch external panel with mini-LED illumination was slated for release in the first quarter of this year, but the company has pushed back the release date. It is anticipated that ProMotion will be supported by the screen, enabling a refresh rate of up to 120Hz.
Ross Young, an expert in the industry, has not seen any evidence that the display has entered mass production, thus there will not be a launch anytime soon. According to MacRumors, the display’s release date has been pushed back many times. There was an initial estimate of June 2022, then October 2022, and finally the first quarter of 2023 for the debut of the screen.
