Bloomberg is not left behind when it comes to guessing what Apple is preparing for us behind the scenes for its next products. It is therefore no surprise that the latest revelations concerning the brand’s future computers come to us directly from the American newspaper, through a new article published today.
Mark Gurman talks about the arrival of proprietary processors unpublished, which makes sense with the announcement of Tim Cook explaining about two years rather to want to free himself from the CPUs designed by the founder Intel. So let’s review these predictions, the content of which generally confirms previous rumors here and there from analysts or specialized media.
To begin with, it is a MacBook Air that should see the light of day with a revisited design and under the hood an M2 SoC succeeding the one that powers the model currently available in stores. Data sheet: Eight-core CPU and ten-core graphics card, two more than today for the image.
The same component would also be integrated into a 13-inch MacBook Pro. It would then be the less powerful of a new trio with also a 14-inch edition and another 16-inch. For those, however, users would be entitled to an M2 Pro and an M2 Max, thus taking up here too the nomenclature of the Apple silicon program since its inception.
The M2 Max chipwhich will undoubtedly be the most powerful of the collection, could carry up to thirty-eight cores for the GPU, coupled with 64 GB of RAM.
Three desktop computers
For businesses or the most demanding needs, Apple would also design a Mac mini M2 and a second this time with a version of the M2 Pro. Finally, it is obviously the Mac Pro which will close the ball with an improved version of the M1 Ultra which equips the Mac Studio presented at the beginning of March.
It is assumed that first official confirmations will be made during the Worldwide Developer Conference June 6, but some devices will likely have to wait even longer. A keynote is expected in September, with the iPhone 14 headlining.
