A couple of years ago, Apple upgraded its MacBook Pro laptops where they gave customers the option to bump the RAM up to a whopping 64GB. It was expected that this would be the same for the upcoming MacBook Pro refresh, but it turns out that might not be the case, according to a report from leakster Luke Miani.
According to Miani, he claims that the upcoming MacBook Pro will max out at 32GB of RAM. This contradicts the previous Bloomberg report, which claimed that the new MacBook Pros could max out at 64GB, but it is still a rumor at the end of the day so it probably should be taken with a grain of salt.
However, to be fair, the current M1 13-inch MacBook Pro already maxes out at 16GB of RAM, so having 32GB as an option is still an upgrade. Plus, since Apple is now making their own chipsets, its software would be optimized for its hardware, so it might not even be necessary to have 64GB of RAM to begin with.
It’s like how Apple’s iPhones have less RAM on paper compared to Android phones, but it has no issues running its apps and benchmarks have shown it to perform very well. We suppose for some, having the option to bump it to 64GB might be a welcome one, but either way, we won’t know for sure until the laptops are officially announced, so don’t be too disappointed yet.
