Apple’s M2 MacBook Pro and Mac mini reportedly delayed until 2023

Apple reportedly won’t launch new M2 Macs until 2023

The rumor mill about Apple launching M2-powered Macs this November was churning, but now it seems we’ll have to wait until next year.

Apple isn’t planning to release new versions of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros until the beginning of 2023. Those hoping for new Macs might have to wait until March.

The new MacBook Pros will have the latest M2 chip we have been informed at MarkMeets and Applue users may now see a new Mac mini also upgraded with an M2 chip.opens in a new tab

Insiders initially expected a third round of product launches to follow Apple’s September iPhone 14 event and October M2 iPad Pro, entry-level iPad, and Apple TV 4K announcement. But that is no longer the case. During last Thursday’s quarterly earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook effectively confirmed this by saying the product line is “set” for the rest of the year.

While Apple reported strong earnings this past quarter, unlike Meta, Amazon, and Snapchat which underperformed. But the tech giant is not immune to macroeconomic and supply chain woes, which possibly accounts for the delay.

Our sourced back-up the claimed delays, including CEO Tim Cook mentioning “set” product lineup and CFO Luca Maestri discussing a reduction in expectations for Mac revenue growth.

The launches, whenever they occur, will most likely include updates to the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro, sporting chips based on the M2. The long-rumored Mac mini refresh is also on the cards, with an M2 chip and radical external changes anticipated.

Gurman claims Apple has also increased its internal testing, including the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. The M2 Max will apparently increase the CPU core count from 10 to 12, with graphics cores upgraded to a maximum of 38.
