New MacBook Pro and Mac Mini With M2 Pro Chips Likely to Launch in November

With the announcement of new iPad Pro, iPad and Apple TV models this week, attention now turns to the Mac. Rumor has it that Apple plans to launch new high-end MacBook Pro and Mac mini models with M2-series chips later this year.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said in this week’s newsletter that the initial release of macOS Ventura on Monday, Oct. 24 will include support for the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, which he expects to be released in 2019. “Near future” release. “The oft-accurate reporter said the new MacBook Pro models will offer M2 Pro and M2 Max chip options, but he sees little other changes to the laptop.


As for the Mac mini, Gurman has previously claimed that new models with M2 and M2 Pro chip options are in the works.

At this point, it seems likely that the new Mac will be released in November, with a press release on the Apple Newsroom website. As Gurman said, Apple has introduced new Macs in November several times in recent years, including the first 16-inch MacBook Pro in 2019 and the first three Macs with the M1 chip in 2020.

The current 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips were released in October 2021 with a complete redesign, a notch in the display, and the addition of HDMI, MagSafe, and SD card reading Cards and other ports. Apple last updated the base-model Mac mini with an M1 chip in November 2020, and it continues to sell higher-priced Intel configurations with Core i5 and Core i7 processor options.

As for the Mac Pro, Gurman now doesn’t think high-end desktops won’t get an Apple silicon update until 2023. He previously reported that the next-generation Mac Pro will feature M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme chips. Next-generation MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro and 24-inch iMac models are also expected to launch next year.
