Update versions of the MacBook Pro, Mac mini, and the Mac Pro will be released in the first quarter of next year, according to Mark Gurman.
Gurman said in his newsletter that Apple has decided to wait until next year to announce new Macs, including MacBook Pros. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros will be upgraded in the first quarter of next year, according to Gurman.
During the company's latest earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said Apple's product lineup is set ahead of the holidays, which could mean there will be no new product launches this year. Gurman noted today in Power On that Luca Maestri, Apple's CFO, gave a more decisive confirmation saying, "we have a very challenging compare against last year, which had the benefit of the launch and associated channel fill of our newly redesigned MacBook Pro with M1."
As previously reported, Apple continues to test an Apple Mac Pro with a configuration that includes 24 CPU cores, 16 performance and eight efficiency cores, 76 graphicscores, and 192 gigabytes of memory. The Mac Pro is expected to be powered by the " M2 Ultra" and " M2 Extreme" chips with at least twice or four times the performance as the M2 Max chip.
