Everything we know thus far about the MacBook Pro 2022
Rumor has claimed that this is the case. In the near future, Apple is expected to unveil a new entry-level MacBook Pro that will be powered by the next generation of Apple processors. As for the new MacBook Pro, an Apple event scheduled for March 8 has been announced.
Because last year’s debut of the current entry-level MacBook Pro M1 shook up the laptop industry in a significant manner, this might be a big deal. Because of the M1 chip’s power, the new 13-inch Pro was able to bring remarkable increases in performance and efficiency.
In fact, the 13-inch Pro has risen to the top of our list of the best laptops for consumers. Now available with the M1 Max or M1 Pro CPUs, the updated Apple 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops start at a starting price of US$1,999 and US$2,499 per model.
That might all change in 2022 when Apple is slated to unveil a new Pro that could replace the M1 Pro’s $1,299 price tag. One of Apple’s most anticipated products of 2018 might be a reported 2022 MacBook Pro, if it follows in the footsteps of Apple’s M1-powered MacBooks and integrates the clever design modifications we saw in the 2021 models.
The MacBook Pro is expected to be released in 2022.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro is scheduled to be released in March, which may coincide with Apple’s upcoming Spring event, according to a person familiar with Apple’s supply chain.
Power On weekly author Mark Gurman predicted that the M2 chip would be included in Apple’s next refreshes of the MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. Also, according to Gurman, the M2 chip is now being tested ahead of the Apple Event, which suggests that these stories may have some validity to them.
After the March 8 Apple event, we may see it go on sale thereafter.
Price prediction for the MacBook Pro in 2022
For now, we don’t know for sure how much Apple plans to charge for the rumoured MacBook Pro 2022.
Based on what we know so far, the starting price of this new MacBook Pro is expected to be less than $2,000, and maybe as low as $1,299 to 1,499 dollars. Assuming that the MacBook Pro 2022 will be an entry-level model, the beginning price will likely be the same as the present entry-level Pro model, which is the ageing 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 (starting at $1,299).
A starting price of between $1,299 and $1,499 is expected for the 2022 MacBook Pro, according to rumours.
There is, however, a considerable chance that Apple will raise the beginning price of a new MacBook Pro in 2022. For example, the 16-inch MacBook Pro 2021 was $100 more expensive than its predecessor, while the smaller 14-inch model had a comparable price increase. As a result, we predict the beginning price of a new MacBook Pro in 2022 to rise to $1,499 if Apple does something similar with a new Pro next year.
Design of the MacBook Pro in the year 2022
We don’t know anything about the design of the new MacBook Pro 2022 at this point. This is the most talked about aspect of these machines so far, since the next Pro is expected to have an all-new piece of Apple silicon: the Apple M2 processor.
A new MacBook Pro model will likely be released by Apple in 2022, taking advantage of the design enhancements made to the 2021 models. Rumors thus far have said that the design will not be altered.
And Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that the machine will not have the mini-LED panels sported by the 2021 MacBook Pros. ProMotion, a variable refresh rate up to 120Hz, will not be available. If this is the case, Apple has likely cut expenses for this entry-level Pro model. A cheaper IPS LCD Retina panel, like those featured in MacBook Airs, is anticipated to replace the mini-LED screens.
If the MacBook Pro 2022 doesn’t have a huge design change, it might be a letdown for those who are waiting for it. Even if its internal features are boosted, it may not be enough to compete with other laptop manufacturers.
Specs for the 2022 MacBook Pro
So far, the most fascinating tidbit regarding the 2022 MacBook Pro’s features has been Mark Gurman’s claim that it would use Apple’s M2 processor. The M2 is expected to include the same 8-core CPU as the original M1 processor, but with a 10-core GPU instead of the 8-core GPU on the M1.
The M1 Max at an Apple Events
Apple may debut a new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air relying on the M2 processor in 2022, if that scenario holds true, just like in November 2020. There is no guarantee that the improved entry-level Pro will be able to compete with the more powerful M1 CPUs that were included in Apple’s 2021 Pros, but we will have to wait and see.
Next-generation Mac computers are also expected to use Apple’s U1 processor for ultra-wideband networking.
The MacBook Pro’s 2022 forecast
Although Apple’s intentions to offer a new MacBook Pro in 2022 are still shrouded in mystery, what we do know gives us cause to be hopeful. This is a great opportunity for Apple to deliver a redesigned entry-level MacBook Pro with an upgraded M2 processor, which was first introduced in the late 2020 release of its first M1-powered MacBooks.
When comparing a new MacBook Pro 2022 to 2021 models equipped with the M1 and M1 Max CPUs, it’s more exciting. The M1 processor is already lightning quick, therefore it begs the question: how fast will the M2 chip be?
The improved M1 Max processor in our 16-inch MacBook Pro 2021 review sample gave absolutely monster performance, particularly when dealing with video, and it is hard to see a future entry-level MacBook Pro surpassing that. Our review device, on the other hand, cost more over $4,000, but the MacBook Pro 2022 is expected to start at less than $1,500. How will they measure up?
