The following is a list of all the rumoured features of the MacBook Pro 2022.
The anticipated Apple M2 chip, which is expected to be the heart of the upcoming MacBook Pro, is expected to focus on efficiency rather than brute power.
The $1,299 13-inch MacBook Pro M1 may be replaced by the MacBook Pro 2022 as the entry-level MacBook Pro in the near future. The predicted MacBook Pro 2022 might be one of Apple’s most anticipated products of the year if it integrates the clever design tweaks we saw in the 2021 Pros, along with a jump in specs.
Everything we know about the MacBook Pro 2022 thus far is included in this summary.
MacBook Pro 2022 rumored release date
The M2 processor is expected to be included in the MacBook Pro 2022, according to 9to5Mac’s purported sources.
The new MacBook Pro and second-generation Apple silicon were nowhere to be found at the recent Peek Performance Apple presentation.
Our money is on a lower-priced entry-level MacBook Pro arriving before the year’s end, but we can’t say for sure.
MacBook Pro 2022 price speculation
We won’t know for sure how much the projected MacBook Pro 2022 will cost until we get official confirmation from Apple.
Even so, based on what we’ve heard so far, the starting price of the new MacBook Pro is expected to fall somewhere in the range of $1,299 to 1,499. Because the MacBook Pro 2022 is expected to be a new entry-level model, and since the present entry-level Pro is the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 (beginning price $1,299), a replacement will likely abide by the same pricing structure.
A starting price of between $1,299 and $1,499 is expected for the 2022 MacBook Pro, according to rumours.
The beginning price of the new MacBook Pro 2022 could be a little higher than expected, however. A $100 price increase on the 16-inch MacBook Pro 2021, for example, and a similar price increase on the smaller 14-inch Pro. As a result, we predict the beginning price of a new MacBook Pro in 2022 to rise to $1,499 if Apple attempts something similar with a new Pro next year.
MacBook Pro 2022 design
There aren’t many hints as to what the new MacBook Pro 2022 will look like in terms of design. A new Apple M2 chip 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.
A new MacBook Pro in 2022 will likely feature the same exterior changes as the 2021 models. However, based on current rumours, there won’t be any changes to the design.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the machine won’t include the mini-LED panels found on the MacBook Pros due out in 2021.. ProMotion, a variable refresh rate up to 120Hz, will not be available. If this is the case, it’s probable because Apple is slashing the price of its entry-level Pro model to save money. A cheaper IPS LCD Retina panel, like the one featured in MacBook Airs, is expected to replace the mini-LED screens.
Those who are eagerly awaiting the MacBook Pro 2022 may be disappointed if there are no major design changes. Even if the internal specs are improved, this may not be enough to keep up with the stiff competition from other laptop manufacturers.
MacBook Pro 2022 specs
Mark Gurman’s assertion that the new MacBook Pro in 2022 will have the Apple M2 chip is the most intriguing thing we’ve heard so far about its specifications. 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.
If that’s the case, we might see new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models powered by the M2 chip in 2022, similar to what happened in November of 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.
U1 chip for ultra-wideband connectivity is expected to be used in the next generation of Mac computers as well as the current generation of Macs.
MacBook Pro 2022 outlook
You can be certain of seeing a MacBook Pro 2022 based on all we’ve heard so far. A redesigned entry-level MacBook Pro powered by an enhanced M2 chip could be released in late 2022 following the release of Apple’s first M1-powered MacBooks in late 2020.
Even more exciting is the potential of comparing the performance of the forthcoming MacBook Pro 2022 with its M1 Max and M1 Pro CPUs with the MacBook Pro 2021. The speculated M2 processor is already so powerful that you have to wonder: how much better will it be?
It’s difficult to imagine a new entry-level MacBook Pro surpassing the performance of the improved M1 Max chip 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?
When the next MacBook Pro is out, we’ll see if we can get one for testing.
