Of course there will be new Macs in 2023, but they may not be the fireworks many users want. According to Mark Gorman who is based in his country the news On Sunday, Apple spends a lot of energy and resources on its mixed reality headset, undercutting its capabilities for other product lines. Which reminds us of the long months leading up to the launch of the iPhone in 2007: most of Apple was devoted to the smartphone.
according to the digger bloomberg, the new release of the year may be the 15-inch MacBook Air. the rumor For a short period It is likely to come true. On the other hand, no MacBook 12 inches or larger is on the radar. Sure, the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro release in the first half, but it will be speed bump With M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.
Of course, we’re expecting a Mac Pro in early 2023 but Gurman is tempering expectations. Thus, Apple has retained the “tower” design of the current model, and it will be necessary to be “satisfied” if one can say with the M2 Ultra chip. No “extreme” M2, as he already predicted last December.
Mac Pro: A modular Mac, but no “M2 Extreme” version?
In the end, this Mac Pro will be little more than a Mac Studio (if Mac Studio is with the M2 Ultra) with the notable exception of the ability to change components. It’ll be dead on for RAM, which is part of the M2’s system-on-a-chip, but storage (the tower will have two SSD slots), graphics, media, and network cards can still be modified.
As for the larger iMac, which has been rumored for months, Gorman would be surprised if Apple released such a model. Moreover, we shouldn’t expect any big surprises this year for the all-in-one: the manufacturer will wait for the development of the M3 chip to update the existing 24-inch model. At best, at the end of 2023 or even 2024.
Finally, macOS 14 (codenamed “Sunburst”) may also suffer from Apple’s interest in the mixed reality headset operating system. There may be fewer new features than expected.
