MacBook Pro 2022 Release Date Status, Price, Design, And Feature And Here’s What We Know

0

Despite the fact that Apple hasn’t said anything about the rumoured MacBook Pro 2022, recent alleged leaks appear to point to a more affordable entry-level MacBook Pro model that will be released later this year.

It is expected that the new MacBook Pro will prioritise efficiency over raw performance, rather than the former’s emphasis on professional power, thanks to the equally rumoured Apple M2 chip, which will serve as the computer’s heart.

This means that the $1,299 13-inch MacBook Pro M1 could be phased out in favour of the MacBook Pro 2022 as Apple’s entry-level MacBook Pro. If the rumoured MacBook Pro 2022 incorporates the smart design changes we saw in the 2021 Pros while also providing a significant performance boost, it could be one of Apple’s most significant releases of the year.

This page contains all of the information we have about the MacBook Pro 2022 to this point.

MacBook Pro 2022 Release Date

We expect the new MacBook Pro to be released in the autumn of 2022, though a WWDC appearance in June is still a possibility.

As a result, the question of when Apple will have completed the development of the M2 chip, which is the one that is most likely to be used in the new MacBook Pro, is really a question of when Apple will have completed the development the M2.

According to the Twitter account Dylandkt, a new MacBook (Air) with an M2 chip could be released in the first half of 2022, according to his predictions in July of that year.

MacBook Pro 2022 Price

We won’t know for certain how much the anticipated MacBook Pro 2022 will cost until we receive official word from Apple.

Nevertheless, based on what we’ve heard so far, it appears likely that the starting price of the aforementioned MacBook Pro will be less than $2,000, and possibly even as low as $1,000 or $1,000 plus tax.

That speculation is entirely based on the fact that the MacBook Pro 2022 is rumored to be a new entry-level model, and given that the current entry-level Pro is the aging 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 (starting price of $1,299), a replacement will almost certainly adhere to the same pricing scheme as its predecessor.

Having said that, there is good reason to believe that Apple will raise the starting price of the new MacBook Pro 2022 by a few hundred dollars. The 16-inch MacBook Pro 2021, for example, was about $100 more expensive than its predecessor, and the smaller 14-inch MacBook Pro also saw a price increase of about $100.

Accordingly, we anticipate that the starting price of the next-generation MacBook Pro will be $1,499 if Apple attempts something similar with a new model next year.

MacBook Pro 2022 Design, And Feature

Design

There have been few details released so far about the design changes that will be implemented in the new MacBook Pro in 2022. The internal design of these devices has been the most popular topic of the discussion thus far, as the next-generation MacBook Pro is expected to include an entirely new piece of Apple silicon: the Apple M2 processor.

The design improvements of the 2021 MacBook Pros are likely to be carried over to a new model in 2022, according to the most reasonable predictions. However, according to the rumors so far, there will be no changes to the design.

Furthermore, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman claims that the machine will not be equipped with the mini-LED displays that will be available on the MacBook Pros in 2021. It will also lack ProMotion, which allows for a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz on a monitor. In the event that this is true, it will almost certainly be as a result of Apple cutting costs for this entry-level Pro. Those mini-LED displays will almost certainly be replaced by a more affordable IPS LCD Retina display, similar to the ones found on MacBook Airs.

Some people who have been waiting for the MacBook Pro 2022 may be disappointed if there are no major design changes. Sure, it may receive an upgrade in internal specifications, but that may not be enough in the face of fierce competition from other laptop manufacturers.

Feature

In terms of specifications for a new MacBook Pro in 2022, the most exciting thing we’ve heard so far is Mark Gurman’s report that it will include the Apple M2 chip.

Rumor has it that while the M2 will have the same 8-core CPU as the original M1 chip (albeit operating at higher clock speeds), it will have a 10-core GPU instead of the 8-core GPU found on the original M1.

If this turns out to be the case, we could see Apple unveiling a new MacBook Pro and a new MacBook Air running on the M2 chip in 2022, similar to what happened in November of last year.

The M1 Pro and M1 Max, which are essentially beefed-up M1 chips that Apple stuffed into the 2021 MacBook Pros, will be the benchmarks against which we’ll be comparing the updated entry-level Pro.

Apple’s U1 chip, which powers ultra-wideband connectivity, is also expected to be used in the company’s next-generation Mac computers.
