Apple is likely to release a couple of new MacBook Pro by early 2023, the same units that were originally scheduled to come out this year.

The new MacBook Pros, reportedly with M2 Pro and M2 Max chip options, faced several delays internally. However according to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, they will finally come out in 2023.

However outside the new chips and likely with faster RAMs, the next 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will carry no other upgrades.

The current MacBook Pro models were originally released in October 2021. They carried an all-new design and had a notch in the display. They also came out with an HDMI port, MagSafe and an SD card reader.

Considering the Cupertino company usually goes several years before altering the designs of the MacBook Pro line, the meager number of upgrades make sense.

Further, the new MacBook Pro models may not be the only ones coming out in 2023. Although not specified, a new iMac with an M3 chip is speculated to be launched somewhere in 2023 at the earliest.

The current iMac line launched in April 2021 and featured the M1 chip and a slim, colorful design, and Gurman previously said Apple planned to skip releasing an iMac with the M2 chip.

He added that while Apple is still interested in a new iMac Pro with Apple Silicon, internal delays have prevented that from happening.

Apple also continues to test new Mac mini models with M2 and M2 Pro chip options, according to Gurman. However, he did not provide details on when this could potentially launch.

Further, Gurman added that Apple has allegedly scrapped plans to make a new Apple Silicon Mac Pro with a high-end “M2 Extreme” chip featuring 48 CPU cores and 152 GPU cores.

He added that the new Mac Pro will be manufactured in Vietnam, a stark departure from the “Made in USA” 2019 Intel Mac Pro on the “Power On” newsletter.
