The latest MacBook Pro 2022 sizes 14 inches and 16 inches will reportedly be available in the fourth quarter of this year. This news was blown by Apple’s supply chain.
The new MacBook Pro 2022, according to the DigiTimes supply chain , is almost certainly a refresh of the 14-inch and 16-inch models though no specific model has been revealed.
Quoted from Tom’s Guide, Sunday (9/25/2022), the report refers to the current 13-inch MacBook Pro laptop for 2022.
Unfortunately, the supply chain did not mention specifically about the date and month for the presence of the latest 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro duo designed by Apple.
Bloomberg ‘s Mark Gurman has long predicted that Apple will hold its second major Fall event next month to launch the iPad and Mac.
Last year’s introduction of 14-inch and 16-inch laptop models with notches, square displays and multiple ports was a major change that Tim Cook et al.
Apple has tended to keep MacBook designs relatively static for generations. The changes will be on the inside of MacBooks with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.
There is some uncertainty as to whether the chips will be manufactured with the new 3nm process. However, lately, evidence has shown that Apple is sticking with 5nm.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo cautions against expecting much change. Apple’s October 2022 event, he says, isn’t just for laptop releases either.
Some time ago it was reported that TSMC has started production of the M2 Pro chipset with the latest 3nm technology for the MacBook Pro which will be released at the end of this year.
Apple will be the first to use the 3nm M2 Pro chip. TSMC is the supplier of the latest generation of chipsets that will be embedded in the latest MacBook Pro.
According to reports, the Apple A17 Bionic chip and M3 chip can continue to use TSMC’s 3nm. The move from 5nm to 3nm results in an increase.
Apple will be leveraging 3nm TSMC for the M2 Pro, which is expected to come with a new line of 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops released this year.
