During the last WWDC 2022 keynote, Apple unveiled its new M2 chip. Boosted by the Apple brand’s Arm architecture, it contains a processor with 20 billion transistors, or 25% more than the M1. It takes place on the brand new MacBook Air launched by the Cupertino company in early June.
Conversion to M2 and M3 chips is accelerating
Far from stopping in such a good way, the Tech giant should still release several computers equipped with M2 and M3 chips this fall and early next year. That’s what journalist Mark Gurman says in his newsletter for Bloomberg Power On. If he happens to be wrong, his information is nevertheless deemed to be very reliable and can therefore be taken seriously.
Thus, the expert thinks that very soon we will have a Mac mini M2, a Mac mini M2 Pro, a 14-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro which would still run thanks to this chip. And the Apple brand would therefore already be working on another generation of chips: the M3.
It would be put to use from the beginning of 2023 on an update of the 13-inch MacBook Air which is codenamed J513. Same thing with a new 15-inch MacBook Air, codenamed J515, and a new iMac, codenamed J433. Finally, a new 12-inch laptop is also in the works.
Note that this is not the first time that we have heard of this M3 chip on which, however, we lack information for the time being. Mark Gurman already explained last April that Apple was working on an iMac equipped with an M3 chip but that the latter would not be available before the end of 2023 at the earliest.
