The 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 silicon processor will launch next month. Based on information from MacRumors, the upcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro retains the same design as the current version.
Includes a Touch Bar, but unlike the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, it won't have a notch.
If so, that means the main difference in the new entry-level MacBook Pro models is the new M2 chip, which features the same number of CPU cores as the M1 processor, up to 10 graphics cores, and increased performance.
Rumors of a new 13-inch MacBook Pro also line up with a DigiTimes report that surfaced last week claiming Apple will launch its first MacBook Pro with a second-generation M2 chip at its spring event.
A DigiTimes source claims that apart from the processor, most of the other components used in the new MacBook Pro will feature nearly the same specs as the existing model featuring the M1 chip, apparently corroborating the latest rumors.
While the company has yet to confirm this, rumors suggest that Apple will host its first event of the year on March 8.
At the event next spring, the tech giant is expected to launch the next-generation iPhone SE with 5G connectivity support.
The Apple M2 will mark the debut of the second generation of Apple Silicon processors after the company launched the M1 chipset a few years ago.
In addition to the MacBook Pro, the M2 chipset will power the new MacBook Air and other devices already powered by the current generation M1 processor.
As is known, Apple released the MacBook Pro in October 2021, it was mentioned that Apple had increased the number of pixels on both screens. And all models also support an on-screen refresh rate of 120 Hz.
These two new Macbook Pro models come with more ports. There are three USB-C Thunderbolt 4, HDMI port, SDXC card slot.
Apple sells these products starting at US$1,999 for the 14-inch, and US$2,499 for the 16-inch.
The M1 Max version is available as an upgrade, with an additional 64GB of memory valued at US$400 and US$2,400 for up to 8TB, in Silver or Space Grey.
