Here are all the MacBook Pro 2022 speculations that have been floating about.
It’s been said 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. Also, the new MacBook Pro might be unveiled during Apple’s presentation scheduled for March 8th.
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 immense power, the 13-inch Pro was able to outperform its predecessors in terms of both performance and efficiency.
In fact, the 13-inch Pro has risen to the top of our list of the best laptops for consumers. The new 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro have since been introduced, however they start at $1,999 and $2,499, respectively, for the M1 Pro or M1 Max CPUs.
As a replacement for the $1,299 13-inch M1 Pro, Apple is likely to unveil a new Pro model in 2022. As long as the design enhancements we saw in the 2021 Pros and all of Apple’s M1-powered MacBooks continue to improve upon its predecessor, the anticipated 2022 MacBook Pro might be one of Apple’s biggest launches this year.
Rumored release date for a MacBook Pro 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.
A new MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro are expected to ship with the M2 processor, according to Mark Gurman in the newest issue of his Power On newsletter. The devices are expected to be available within the next month.
If the Apple event is scheduled for March 8, we may see it go on sale at that time or soon thereafter.
Price prediction for the MacBook Pro in 2022
We won’t know the exact pricing of the next MacBook Pro 2022 until Apple gives us an official statement on the matter.
It is probable, based on what we’ve heard to now, that this MacBook Pro will start at less than $2,000 and likely be as low as $1,299 – $1,499. Based only on this hypothesis, the MacBook Pro 2022, which is expected to be a new entry-level model, is expected to be priced similarly to its predecessor, the aged 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 (beginning price $1,299).
Priced to reflect its entry-level status, the rumoured 2022 MacBook Pro would start at about $1,299 and go up from there.
The beginning price of the new MacBook Pro 2022 might be a bit more than expected, though. There was a $100 price increase for the larger MacBook Pro 2021 (16-inch) and a $100 price increase for the smaller MacBook Pro 2021 (14-inch). The beginning price of a new MacBook Pro in 2022 is expected to rise to $1,499 if Apple does something similar with an updated model next year.
New MacBook Pro designs for 2022
There aren’t many hints as to what the new MacBook Pro 2022 will look like in terms of design. A new Apple M2 processor is reported to be included in the next generation of Macs, making the internal design the most talked about aspect of these devices thus far.
It’s realistic to assume that in 2022, Apple will continue to enhance the design of the 2021 MacBook Pros. Despite this, the rumour mill has suggested that the design would not be altered.
As for the display, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman believes that it won’t use the mini-LED technology seen in the MacBook Pros scheduled for release in the year 2021. A variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz is not an option with ProMotion. If this is the case, it’s probable because Apple is slashing the price of its entry-level Pro model. A cheaper IPS LCD Retina panel, like the one featured in MacBook Airs, is expected to replace the mini-LED screens.
Holding waiting for the MacBook Pro 2022 might disappoint those who expect a substantial design shift. Even if its internal specifications are boosted, it may not be enough to keep up with the competition from other laptop manufacturers.
Specs for the MacBook Pro 2022 model year
Mark Gurman’s assertion that the next MacBook Pro in 2022 would use the Apple M2 processor is the most intriguing thing we’ve heard so far regarding its specifications. While the M1 chip has an 8-core CPU, the M2 chip is expected to include a 10-core GPU instead, according to rumoured leaks and reports.
It’s possible that, similar to what happened in November of 2020, Apple would reveal a new MacBook Pro and a new MacBook Air with the M2 processor in 2022 if this scenario plays out. In terms of performance, we’ll have to wait and see how the new entry-level Pro’s M1 processor compares up against those in the 2021 Pros, which include upgraded M1 chips.
Next-generation Mac computers are expected to have Apple’s U1 processor, which powers ultra-wideband networking, as well.
A peek at the future of the MacBook Pro in 2022
If you’re hoping for a new MacBook Pro from Apple in 2022, there’s ample cause to be hopeful based on what we’ve heard so far. A redesigned entry-level MacBook Pro with an enhanced M2 processor would be an ideal moment for Apple to continue its growth in the computer sector given its first M1-powered MacBooks were released in late 2020.
When comparing a new MacBook Pro 2022 to 2021 models equipped with the M1 and M1 Max CPUs, it’s more exciting. The speculated M2 processor is already so powerful that you have to wonder: how much better will it be?
When it comes to dealing with video, the updated M1 Max processor in our 16-inch MacBook Pro 2021 review unit gave absolutely monster performance, and it’s hard to think of a new entry-level MacBook Pro that can match 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 to each other?
Just wait and see when the new MacBook Pro is out and we can get our hands on one for testing.
