If there is one thing about Apple is that the company has a different style of doing things. A new report has suggested that Apple is delaying the release of its redesigned MacBook Air till later this year and won’t launch new MacBook Pro models until 2023.
Reports from last year suggested that Apple might release a new and redesigned MacBook Air in the late last year 2021 or early this year 2022. And the new MacBook Air is expected to feature a new MagSafe, an M2 chip, and a new design. Well, there have been some changes.
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the mass production of the new MacBook Pro is expected to start by the late second quarter or early third quarter of this year (late June/early July). This new analysis suggests that the device could arrive by September or November this year.
Gurman from Bloomberg also suggests that Apple might decide not to release its top-end 14-inches and 16-inches MacBook Pros this year. According to Gurman, both devices are expected to feature the M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets next year. He further went on to say the MacBook is the expected apple to release this year is a refreshed MacBook Air with a 13-inches display and M2 chip inside.
Launching a series of Apple Macs with the M2 chip by the end of 2022 seems like something Apple would do. Back in 2020, Apple launched the MacBook Air with M1 chip, 13-inches MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini in November of 2020. This suggests that the company has a 2-year timeframe for releasing its new silicon the M-series chipsets.
With the rumors of the chip shortage saga coming to an end, Apple might make more devices come 2023. And we expected to see a new MacBook Pro powered by a new M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets. We’re yet to get any timeframe for the launch of these devices. So stay tuned.
