If we are to believe the latest rumors, Apple will release a Mac mini and MacBook Pro with M2 chipsets before the end of the year. So far, we’ve seen quite a few products with the company’s brand new processor. That may change in a few months.
Rumors come from the latest Power on the newsletter From journalist Mark Gorman Bloomberg. Admittedly, the current M2 processors are better than the regular M1 variants. But compared to the M1 Pro and M1 Ultra, the base version of the M2 really falls short.
Mac mini and MacBook Pro
Later this year, we may actually learn about the more powerful variants of the M2 processor. After that – it is said – it will be the M2 Pro and M2 Max. The first product to include the new chipset may be MacBook Pro. Then it’s time for the new Mac mini, according to Gurman.
Previous rumors have already indicated that Apple may not intend to make any external changes to the new MacBook Pro models. So we may deal with a TRUE. honest. core Spec Bump, where the company only looks at the internals. This news is currently unconfirmed.
What about sales?
In his newsletter, Gurman also quotes the latest quarterly numbers for the Mac line. Apple computers did not perform well and recorded a 10 percent drop in sales. This is due to many aspects Tim Cook saidbut the processor may also have a role in consumer decisions.
However, new versions of the Mac mini and MacBook Pro, perhaps with an improved processor on board, could turn the tide. At least, that’s what Gorman thinks. Apple could maintain this momentum until 2023, when we expect new iterations of the Mac Pro, iMac, and 15-inch MacBook Air.
