Apple is preparing a new MacBook Pro, it should be released before the end of the year with an M2 Pro and M2 Max chip.
One week before the (probable) presentation of the iPhone 14, the rumors are no longer focused around a single product: the MacBook Pro. Apple could market a new version of its high-end laptop in the coming weeks. According to the latest report by Mark Gurman, journalist for Bloomberg, Apple is developing the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.
This device should be a big update of the two models released last year of 14 and 16 inches. According to information from MacRumors, the brand new MacBook Pro should have the right to better connectivity than the previous version. Indeed the device should be equipped with an HDMI port as well as a MagSafe charger. Like the model released last June by Apple.
Nobody has yet decided on a release date for this device, but it seems that Apple is preparing the marketing for early November. The Apple brand has just planned to hold a presentation conference at the end of October, focusing on iPads and Macs.
A brand new iPhone next week
This conference leaves the field open to the iPhone and the Apple Watch which should be the two big stars of the conference on September 7th. As for the next phone from the Apple brand, it should be quite different from the iPhone 13. The notch could disappear on the Pro model.
The iPhone mini will also not be part of it. Too unpopular, the small model will not be renewed this year, after two years of production. The September 7 conference should also be an opportunity to present a new Apple Watch. In addition to the Series 8 which is expected for the start of the school year, Apple could take advantage of the event to release a brand new model of its connected watch. A “Pro” version of the Apple Watch whose price could exceed 1000 €.
Two iPads and two Macs to end the year
This conference should also allow Apple to release the final version of iOS 16 and WatchOS 9. Regarding iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura, we will have to wait until the end of October and this new presentation keynote. During the latter, Apple could present two new tablets, the 10th generation iPad (entry level) and a new version of the iPad Pro, always more successful.
For Macs, in addition to the MacBook Pro mentioned above, Apple could introduce a new Mac mini to its lineup. According to the latest rumors about him, he will be entitled to the M2 chip released in June by Apple.
