New words suggest we could see a MacBook Pro M2 (2023) laptop release in the first quarter of next year.
Apple will again release 14-inch and 16-inch take-ups of the MacBook Pro laptops, but this time with M2-based processors to boost the performance.
MacBook Pro M2 will be available with M2 Pro and M2 Max CPU options, seeing a performance upgrade to both the processing and graphics power.
The laptop isn’t expected to see a new design, but that’s hardly a surprise when Apple gave the Pro series a significant refresh in 2021.

The MacBook Pro M2 laptop is set to launch in the first quarter of 2023. That suggests we could see the laptops hit stores before March 2023.
Many had previously hoped Apple would launch the MacBook Pro M2 in 2022. Still, CEO Tim Cook has since confirmed, during a quarterly earnings call, that Apple has already completed its product line for this holiday season.
There have yet to be any details on the prices, but with the next batch of MacBook Pro laptops potentially only seeing a processor refresh, we expect them to retain the same price points.
The current cheapest 14-inch MacBook Pro is priced at 1,63,451 INR/1,77,843 INR, and the most affordable 16-inch MacBook Pro costs 2,04,326 INR/2,04,326 INR.
The next MacBook Pro will be powered by an M2 Pro or M2 Max chip, depending on your chosen configuration.
The M2 Max will reportedly feature up to 12 CPU cores (an increase from 10) and 38 GPU cores (up from 32). We don’t know the exact specs for the M2 Pro right now, but we’re expecting an upgrade to the processing and graphics performance here too.
The standard M2 chip
We also assume these new chips will use the same architecture as the standard M2 chip in the latest MacBook Air. If so, the processors could significantly boost the number of transistors, enhancing the performance even before Apple squeezes on additional CPU and GPU cores.
It’s hard to envision what other upgrades the following MacBook Pro M2 laptops could see. They already have Mini LED screens, MagSafe charging, and a modern design so that Apple may rely solely on a processor refresh.
