Apple will reportedly target an 18-month product refresh cycle with its M2 processor. Allegedly, Apple's M2 silicon will be built using TSMC's 4 nm process. Furthermore, there will only be an M2 next year with more powerful Pro and Max chips falling to 2023.

A report from the Commercial Times has detailed Apple’s strategy for the company’s next M-series processors. Allegedly, with the release of Apple M2, the company will follow an 18-month development and release cycle for its processors. According to the report, Apple will release the M2 processor in the second half of 2022. However, there won’t be Pro and Max variants of the M2 chip until 2023. Come 2023, Cupertino will unveil the M2 Pro and the M2 Max.

The M2 chip, including the Pro and Max, will allegedly be built on TSMC’s 4 nm process node. We’ve previously reported that the M2 chip codenamed “Staten” will power up to six different machines in 2022. We now know that the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips are codenamed “Rhodes” and will be powering the 2023 Apple computers.

Furthermore, the Commercial Times also claims that Apple’s M3 processor will use TSMC’s 3 nm process after 2023. Only time will tell whether Apple follows this 18-month cycle or releases products much faster.
