The 14-inch and sixteen-inch MacBook Pro ought to quickly be transport with new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. There turned into an 18-month wait among the appearance of the M1 MacBook Air and M1 MacBook Pro and their M2 replacements, however in spite of it simplest a yr for the reason that M1 Pro and M1 Max fashions released, their successors won’t be that some distance off. Here’s the entirety you want to recognise approximately the approaching launch.
2022 14- and sixteen-inch MacBook Pro: Release date
A fall launch prediction for the 14- and sixteen-inch MacBook Pro got here thru a July 2022 Power On e-newsletter from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman wherein he indicated that Apple is already getting ready the subsequent spherical of Apple silicon updates. Gurman wrote that the 14- and sixteen-inch MacBook Pro may be getting M2 Pro and M2 Max chip improvements via way of means of the quit of this yr, despite the fact that he cautions that the replace will be not on time till early 2023 due to “persisted supply-chain challenges.”
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo then tweeted in August that the brand new 14-inch and sixteen-inch MacBook Pro will input manufacturing withinside the fourth quarter, which tallies with a fall release.
New 14″ and sixteen” MacBook Pro with new processors will input mass manufacturing in 4Q22. Given TSMC’s steering that the 3nm will make contributions sales beginning in 1H23, processors of 14″ and sixteen” MacBook Pro fashions might also additionally nevertheless undertake the 5nm superior node.

It could be regular exercise for Apple to maintain a Mac occasion in October or November, so there’s a few expectation that the MacBook Pro replace ought to arrive (along new Mac mini) at an Apple occasion in October, or as a minimum thru an October press launch.
With macOS Ventura anticipated via way of means of the quit of October it seems possibly that the brand new product launches could tie in with the appearance of that Mac running gadget replace.
However, in an October sixteen e-newsletter Gurman well-knownshows that he doesn’t assume a MacBook Pro launch withinside the week of 17 October (along new iPad Pro fashions). He writes that “While the brand new MacBook Pros are on target to release withinside the close to future, I wouldn’t assume them to be launched along the iPad Pro”, including that Apple “has traditionally released new Macs in November”. So on that foundation we are able to anticipate that Gurman now expects a November launch.
2022 14- and sixteen-inch MacBook Pro: Price
The present day fashions are priced as follows. While there are a few huge charge leaps among the 8-middle and 10-middle CPU modes that many may be hoping Apple will near up, we don’t expect any most important modifications withinside the U.S.—despite the fact that we ought to see a few charge rises in a few components of the arena consistent with inflation. Apple raised the charge of the entry-degree MacBook Air via way of means of $two hundred or 20 percentage with the M2 redesign.

2022 14- and sixteen-inch MacBook Pro: Design
If you had been hoping that Apple could extrade something approximately the layout of those large MacBook Pro fashions be organized to be disappointed. The business enterprise made a few large modifications in 2021, with the brand new 14- and sixteen-inch length presentations and their ProMotion technology, in conjunction with the elimination of the Touch Bar and the addition of the notch (all of which serve to distinguish from the thirteen-inch MacBook Pro). Gurman has suggests that the MacBook Pro is anticipated to “live more or less the same” at the out of doors.

2022 14- and sixteen-inch MacBook Pro: Specs
While the out of doors of the MacBook Pro will appearance the same, the interior may be different.
Based at the M2, and the M1-versions that Apple released in 2021, we estimate that the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips will provide the following:
M2 Pro: as much as 10-middle CPU, as much as 20-middle GPU, as much as 48GB RAM
M2 Max: as much as 10-middle CPU, 40-middle GPU, as much as 96GB RAM
We would possibly see even greater CPU cores than expected above – Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reviews that his reassets suggest that the M2 Max may have 12 CPU cores.
Two more CPU cores aren’t the simplest extrade that would spell a quicker CPU. There have been guidelines that Apple could begin the usage of the brand new 3nm technique for the M3 chips once they arrive, possibly in 2023, however a few reviews recommended that this new technique will be used for the M2 Pro and different versions.
The 3nm technique have to permit even better transistor density amongst different things. According to DigiTimes in June 2022, Apple has “booked TSMC ability for its upcoming 3nm M3 and M2 Pro processors” and TSMC may be beginning quantity manufacturing of 3nm chips withinside the 2d 1/2 of of 2022.
