Everyone wonders when Apple M2 release date is. According to a report from Bloomberg News’s Mark Gurman, Apple is preparing to release several new Macs with an M2 processor later this year. The company will debut a 13-inch MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, 24-inch iMac, and redesigned MacBook Air with the anticipated M2 chip.
Apple has yet to provide any hints regarding the possible M2 chip, but Gurman believes that its CPU will be somewhat faster than the M1’s, and that it will utilize the same eight-core design. Its graphics cores, on the other hand, could increase from seven to nine or ten. In 2023, Gurman expects Apple to release Pro and Max versions of the M2 processor alongside an M3 chip.
Apple M2 chip rumors: Apple M2 release date and more
It’s been more than a year since Apple first announced its M1 chip in November 2020, and it hasn’t said much about it since. The company has also introduced the M1 Pro and M1 Max, both of which include an Intel-based CPU. Gurman predicts the next-generation iMac Pro will feature a larger display, replacing its existing 27-inch model. Gurman also expects a smaller Mac Pro with “the equivalent of two or four M1 Max chips,” as well as a bigger iMac Pro with the same M1 chip that currently exists in the Mac Mini. The current Mac Mini already comes with an M1 chip, but Gurman believes it will get an improved M1 Pro option (in addition to an M2 variant).
Gurman predicts that Apple will release new Macs in March, followed by May or June releases. An iPhone SE with 5G support, a 5G iPad Air, and perhaps one new Mac are all expected to debut at an as-yet-unrevealed March 8 event from Apple. In addition, iOS 15.4 is due out in March with a Face ID-friendly Face Mask function. The arrival of the iPhone 14 and Apple Watch Series 8 isn’t anticipated until later this year.
