Apple is currently working on its new generation chip which will most likely be called the M2, and numerous rumors claim that these chips will be used in a new version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro as well as a refreshed MacBook Air.
Apple might be developing M2 for Macbook 2022
A new report from 9to5Mac today restates these rumors, Apple is said to launch a MacBook Air and a 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip later this year. Ming Chi Kuo’s claims regarding the next-generation MacBook Air would use either the M1 or an updated version of it is false news, according to 9to5Mac.
While analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that the new MacBook Air will have an updated M1 chip, our reliable sources have told us that the machine is being developed with the new M2 chip.
Codenamed J413, the next generation MacBook Air is expected to be released in a single version featuring M2.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple may remove the “Pro” branding from the next 13-inch MacBook. The new machine may be referred to as simply “MacBook.”
Lately, Mark Gurman from Bloomberg also commented on the next-generation Apple M2 chips:
“I’m told from a developer source that Apple has been testing multiple Macs with a new chip in recent weeks that includes an eight-core CPU (four efficiency cores and four high-performance cores) and 10 GPU cores. Those are exactly the specifications of the M2 chip I detailed last year.”
There hasn’t been an announcement regarding a release date, but M2 machines are expected to be released in 2022.
