Its newsletter is always scrutinized closely on Bloomberg because he is often very knowledgeable about Apple. This week, journalist Mark Gurman said more about the new entry-level MacBook Pro which will be equipped with an M2 processor and should be released this year. We don’t yet know if this will happen during the first keynote of the year, which could be held on March 8, or later.
The transition to homemade chips is gradual
The expert has therefore provided information about this new Mac which will come to replace the current M1 model launched in November 2020. To obtain a cheaper price, we can expect some variations from the MacBook Pro launched in October 2021.
The analyst explains as follows:
I expect the new entry-level MacBook Pro to line up with the high-end MacBook Pros by losing the Touch Bar, but the main differences will be in screens, processors and lesser storage. quality, and there will be no ProMotion or miniLED. It will be one of many Macs in the works with the M2 chip, including updates to the 24-inch iMac, entry-level Mac mini and revamped MacBook Air.
As we can see, Apple should gradually complete the transition from intel chips to its own in-house chips with the launch of new Macs throughout this year 2022.
In the same newsletter published last week, Mark Gurman mentions the date of next Tuesday March 8 as a possible first keynote of the year. We won’t be long in checking if he got it right, but it would make sense.
If Apple generally prefers to wait until the end of winter or the beginning of spring to hold its first conference, we know that the year will be very rich in new products for the Cupertino company, therefore it does not seem incongruous to see it start earlier in 2022.
