Here are all the MacBook Pro 2022 speculations that have been floating about.
Rumors of a MacBook Pro 2022 have been circulating for some time, but hints and reported leaks thus far all point to a more affordable variant being released this year.
Rather of focusing on sheer performance, the MacBook Pro is likely to have an emphasis on efficiency, with Apple’s M2 processor serving as its heart.
The $1,299 13-inch MacBook Pro M1 may be replaced by the MacBook Pro 2022 as the entry-level model. MacBook Pro 2022, if it comes with the clever design modifications we saw in the 2021 Pros and offers a rise in specifications, might be one of Apple’s biggest launches of the year.
The MacBook Pro 2022 release date is a rumour.
9to5Mac claims to have information from reliable sources that the MacBook Pro 2022 will ship this year and include an M2 chip as standard equipment.
There was no mention of a new MacBook Pro or second-generation Apple silicon at the recent Peek Performance Apple presentation.
However, we’re cautiously optimistic that a new, more inexpensive entry-level MacBook Pro will be released before the year is over.
Prices for the MacBook Pro 2022 are currently being speculated.
We won’t know for sure how much the projected MacBook Pro 2022 will cost until we get formal confirmation from Apple.
It appears that the beginning price of this MacBook Pro will be less than $2,000, and more likely between $1,299 and $1,499. This is based on what we’ve heard so far. Due to the fact that the MacBook Pro 2022 is expected to be a new entry-level model, the current entry-level MacBook Pro with M1 (beginning price $1,299), the new model is likely to adhere closely to the same pricing scheme. That’s all guesswork, of course.
A starting price of between $1,299 and $1,499 is expected for the 2022 MacBook Pro, according to rumours.
That Nevertheless, it’s reasonable to assume that the beginning price of a new MacBook Pro in 2022 will be slightly more than it is now. A $100 price increase for the 16-inch MacBook Pro 2021, for example, and a comparable price increase for the smaller 14-inch model. 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. The Apple M2 processor, said to be inside the next-generation MacBook Pro, has dominated the conversation about the machines’ internals thus far.
A new MacBook Pro model will likely be released by Apple in 2022 that incorporates the design changes made to the 2020 MacBook Pros. Despite this, the rumour mill has suggested that the design would not be altered.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the machine will not include the mini-LED panels found on the MacBook Pros due out in 2021. A variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz is not an option with ProMotion. There is a good chance that Apple will be slashing the price of this entry-level Pro model if this is true. Those mini-LED panels will likely be ditched in favour of a cheaper IPS LCD Retina display like those seen on MacBook Airs.
Those who are eagerly awaiting the MacBook Pro 2022 may be disappointed if there are no substantial design changes. Even if its internal features are boosted, it may not be enough to compete with other laptop manufacturers.
Specs for the MacBook Pro in 2022
Apple M2 is the most interesting tidbit we’ve heard regarding the next MacBook Pro in 2022, according to Mark Gurman’s report. There have been rumblings that the M2 would have the same eight-core CPU as the original M1 chip (although clocked faster), but a 10-core GPU instead of the 8-core GPU on the original M1.
A new MacBook Pro and a new MacBook Air with the M2 CPU might be unveiled in 2022, just like in November 2020. To be sure, we’ll have to wait and see how the revised entry-level Pro’s CPU compares to the beefed-up M1 chips Apple inserted into the 2021 Pros.
Apple’s ultra-wideband connection processor, the U1, is expected to be included in the next generation of macs.
MacBook Pro 2022 forecast
According to all that has been reported so far, you should be optimistic about seeing a MacBook Pro 2022 in the near future. Since the sale of its first M1-powered MacBooks in late 2020, Apple’s progress on the computing front has been impressive, and late 2022 seems like an ideal moment to offer a redesigned entry-level MacBook Pro with an enhanced M2 processor.
A new MacBook Pro 2022 vs the M1 Pro and M1 Max CPUs of the current 2021 MacBook Pros is more fascinating. The speculated M2 processor is already so powerful that you have to wonder: how much better will it be?
It’s difficult to see a new entry-level MacBook Pro surpassing the performance of the improved M1 Max processor in our 16-inch MacBook Pro 2021 evaluation sample. However, the MacBook Pro 2022 is expected to start at less than $1,500, compared to almost $4,000 for our testing device. How do they compare?
Just wait and see when the new MacBook Pro is out and we can get our hands on one for testing.
