During Apple's "Peek Performance" event, we expected the unveiling of the M2 chip, but the American technology giant surprised us with the introduction of the M1 ultra chip . Although it looks like we'll have to wait a little longer to introduce the new generation of Apple chips, the company is likely to unveil two MacBooks with the M2 chip in the coming months. According to the latest report from the 9to5mac website, Apple will launch the new 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro equipped with the M2 processor this year. It should be noted that this news contradicts the previous report of the famous Apple analyst, Mr. "Ko", who announced that these products will be introduced with the M1 chipset.
It is said that the M2 chip with the code name "Staten" It has a similar design to Apple's A15 BIONIC chip. The new generation of Apple M series chips will be equipped with an 8-core processor and a more powerful 10-core graphics processor. It is also rumored that the M2 chipset will be based on 4nm technology. It was announced some time ago that Apple will introduce a new generation of these chips once every 18 months, which means that in 2023 we will see the introduction of the M2 Pro and M2 Max, which are supposedly based on TSMC's 3-nanometer manufacturing technology. The new MacBook Air, which will probably draw its power from the M2 chip, will be available to users with a new design and a higher price. According to the latest rumors, Apple's new MacBook Air will probably use a notch design on the top of the screen.
This information was published by the same revelation that first mentioned Apple's use of screen notch design in Peru MacBooks in 2021. He also announced that the new MacBook Air will have a much nicer design than the previous generation, and it seems that Apple intends to make changes to its design. These gadgets have long used a thicker back design and a very slim front design. The whistleblower claims that the MacBook Airs of 2022 will likely have a flat design at the top and bottom edges. The new MacBook Pro uses the same technology. Regarding the naming of this laptop, one of the whistleblowers claimed that Apple leaves out the suffix "Air" and this laptop reaches the users under the name "MacBook". According to Bloomberg News, the new MacBook Air has a slimmer and lighter body and has two USB 4 ports and a Magsif charging port.
As mentioned at the outset, the M2 chip is set to replace Apple's M1 chip and will not be touted as a more powerful replacement for the M1 Pro, M1 Max or Ultra chips. However, after the introduction of the M2 chip, the company will unveil other new chips such as the M2 Pro, M2 Max and Ultra version. We expect the M2 Pro chip to power Apple's new Mac mini. In addition, reports indicate that the graphics processor of the M2 Ultra chip has 24 cores.
We should also mention the 13-inch MacBook Pro equipped with the M2 chip, which will be available to users this year. This new laptop is said to be introduced with the design of its previous generation, which means that we will not see any new innovation in the design of this laptop. In addition, it is rumored that the 13-inch MacBook Pro will be available only on a model with an M2 chip. The publication reports that Apple may remove the "Pro" extension from the name of the new MacBook Pro. This possible move by Apple introduces the MacBook Pro as a low-end laptop. It remains to be seen what other news will be released about Apple products in the coming days.
