After rumors of Apple planning a product announcement tomorrow and the discovery of an unlisted MacBook Pro in a Canadian regulatory database, it looks like new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models may finally be on the way.
Ahead of the potential launch, we’ve rounded up everything we’ve heard so far about the next-generation 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro.
M2 Pro and M2 Max chips
The main new feature of the next MacBook Pro models is expected to be the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips for faster performance. BloombergMark Gurman said the chips will offer only “marginal” performance improvements over the current M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, as leaked benchmarks last year suggested.
Wireless frequency ranges listed in Canadian regulatory filings indicate that the new MacBook Pro will support Wi-Fi 6E, which extends Wi-Fi to the 6 GHz range for greater bandwidth, faster speeds and lower latency : The current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros support standard Wi-Fi 6, which is limited to 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
The new MacBook Pro models are rumored to be equipped with “very high-bandwidth, high-speed RAM,” but details are unclear. On a purely speculative basis, it is possible that the new models could be equipped with Samsung’s latest LPDDR5X RAM, with up to 33% increased memory bandwidth with up to 20% less power consumption.
No design changes
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Gurman both suggested that the new MacBook Pro models won’t have exterior design changes and a few other key features.
This aspect wouldn’t be too surprising since Apple completely redesigned the high-end MacBook Pros in October 2021 with more ports like HDMI and MagSafe at the top of the display, an all-black keyboard area, and more. MacBooks often go several generations between major hardware changes, so a tech drop in 2023 is a reasonable expectation.
