New MacBook Air arrives at year-end, MacBook Pro refresh delayed
Mark Gurman corrects his predictions and reveals when we’ll see the new MacBook Air and the next MacBook Pro.
Mark Gurman spoke once again about the future of Apple. news letter published weekly and important news on the subject. next MacBook Air and next MacBook Pro update. Recall that a complete redesign of the MacBook Air is expected, including the M2 chip, and the next generation of MacBook Pros is arriving at the end of 2021.
Gurman initially said that Apple planned to launch the new MacBook Air with “an all-new design, MagSafe and M2 chip” in late 2021 or early 2022, but obviously that didn’t happen. We already had a first event this year and No trace of MacBook Air or M2 chip.
Therefore, it now shows that it is most likely this new device has been delayed until the end of 2022. It makes sense, Apple just introduced the M1 Ultra and at the same time releasing an M2 chip might not be that good from a marketing standpoint and might surprise users.
On the other hand, Gürman also cites: Doesn’t expect Apple to update its high-end 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros this yearSupposedly, these new models would be identical in design, but would include “M2 Pro” and “M2 Max” chips. Most likely, these two devices will be released in 2023.
The only update to the MacBook Pro lineup for this year is likely a Refurbished entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 chip. This MacBook Pro could be exactly the same as the current one.
M-series chips will be upgraded every two years
If this information is correct, it seems Apple chooses two-year deadline to update Apple Silicon chipsadequate and perfectly adapted to the development of new technologies and devices.
most probably Apple rolled out an update for Macs that will use the M2 chip by the end of 2022: A new MacBook Air, a 13-inch MacBook Pro, and a Mac mini are safe, with the ability to upgrade a 24-inch iMac. If the update occurs in September or October 2022, It will be exactly two years since the arrival of the M1..
Probably M2 Pro and M2 Max will be available throughout 2023 and we will see the new Ms Ultra at the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024.. Each exactly two years apart from the previous one.
