Last year, Apple updated its MacBook Pros by giving it a new design, a new 14-inch display option, and also the use of the M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets. If you were hoping to see a refresh this year, don’t hold your breath because it seems that we might have to wait until next year for it.
This is according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman where in his latest Power On newsletter, the journalist claims that he does not expect Apple to refresh the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros this year, and that it will most likely arrive in 2023 where it could be powered the M2 version of the Pro and Max chipsets.
In a way it makes sense given that refreshing it this year with the M2 having yet to be announced means that there would be almost nothing worth refreshing. Sure, there is the new M1 Ultra chipset found in the new Mac Studio, but seeing as it would require considerably more powerful thermals compared to the other M1 chipsets, we’re not sure if fitting that into a laptop would be all that feasible.
That being said, there have been rumors that Apple is expected to refresh the 13-inch MacBook Pro that we saw back in 2020, so if you want a new MacBook Pro that’s cheaper than the newer models, that could be something to keep an eye out for.
