M2 MacBook Pro to launch in second half of 2022, report claims

While Apple’s Peek Performance event delivered an all-new Mac Studio with M1 Ultra, iPad Air 5 with M1, and updated iPhone SE with 5G, there was no sign of the Cupertino tech giant’s rumored M2 chip. But we may still see the next-gen Apple silicon in 2022.

According to Taiwan-based business analysis outlet Digitimes, Apple is gearing up to launch the new Mac series with M2 Apple silicon “in the second half of this year.” This is expected to include a 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro, M2 Mac mini, and 24-inch M2 iMac. Noticeably, this doesn’t include the rumored 2022 MacBook Air. 

Spotted by MacRumors, the M2 chips are expected to be based on TSMC’s 4nm process. Prior to the Apple March event, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman was told by a developer source that Apple has been testing a new chip an eight-core CPU and a 10-core GPU, which is widely believed to be the next-generation M2 Apple silicon chip. Apparently, it has been tested on multip Macs on the latest macOS beta. 

This further supports Digitimes’ claim, although Gurman believes that some of these M2 Mac models will be released sometime in May or June instead of the second half of 2022. According to reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, however, one of these Macs is expected to be an updated MacBook Air, which won’t come with an M2 chip.
