Insider claims that Apple will launch multiple Apple Silicon M2-powered Macs in 2022, including an entry-level MacBook Pro
Industry insider Mark Gurman recently offered new insights into Apple's 2022 Mac gameplan. According to Gurman, Apple will launch as many as five new Mac models next year. These include a new iMac and Mac Mini on the desktop side of things, as well as a new MacBook Air, and two different MacBook Pro models.
Interestingly, Gurman claims that Apple's entire 2022 Mac lineup will be powered by variants of the Apple Silicon M2 and M1X chips. Last year, Apple swapped Intel chips out for the Apple Silicon M1 across its Mac lineup. However, it continued to sell Intel-powered models like the 2020 iMac. The arrival of the new M2 devices could mark a complete break with Intel hardware.
Gurman also stated that Apple plans on rolling out two different MacBook Pro models. The higher-end model will presumably feature the massively powerful M1X processor, with the entry-level model featuring a variant of the M2. While the Apple Silicon M2 isn't going to match the M1X in terms of sheer GPU and CPU capabilities, it will likely be a solid improvement over the M1 chip found in 2021 MacBooks.
