According to the most recent source, the new MacBook Pro family with improved custom processors will be available later this year. Unfortunately, if you were one of the anxious people expecting to see an October release, that’s not going to happen; However, that doesn’t mean Apple won’t be revealing them soon. The updated MacBook Pro is expected to be released in November, although Apple is unlikely to hold a separate event for these models.
Notable Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman surprised subscribers with an early “Power On” update, speculating that the new MacBook Pro models integrated with the M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets may be available in November.
Apple probably won’t hold a separate event for the iPad Pro and MacBook Pro M2 versions, as neither will include major new features. Instead, the company will continue to issue press releases and expand the information in those publications. This could mean that the M2 Pro and M2 Max in the new MacBook Pro models will not be mass-produced using TSMC’s 3nm design, but rather on the same 5nm process used for the M2.
Since the above information is true, we can expect a significant performance boost from both the 16-inch and 14-inch MacBook Pro models, with the top-of-the-line M2 Max offering a configuration of up to a 12-core CPU and 38-core GPU. The M1 Max has a 10-core CPU and a 32-core GPU. The ports of the current models and the same keyboard and physical function keys will likely be retained, which explains why Apple is not expected to hold a full event for this release.
