Updating the MacBook Pro line with new generation Apple Silicon processors is one of the biggest wishes of fans of the American company. This update was expected to arrive in the spring, however, this may not materialize.
Who says it is the publication Digitimes with its most recent report alluding to these products. Citing sources close to Apple’s supply chain, the new MacBook Pro will have been delayed again.
New MacBook Pro suffers a new delay
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard that the upcoming 14″ and 16″ MacBook Pro have seen their release delayed. Unfortunately, this thesis comes up again, increasing the anxiety of those waiting for the launch of the new models with M2 Pro and M2 Max.
The new report now shared does not come up with a new timetable for the presentation of these models. It is limited to giving the unfortunate news that Apple’s new laptops have been postponed again.
In view of the presentation of the new M2 processor last June, it was expected that the new MacBook Pro with variations of this component could arrive in the autumn. After all, it was on this occasion that a year was marked since the launch of the previous generation.
As this calendar was not confirmed, the most varied sources linked to the branch pointed to the spring of 2023 as the ideal time for the presentation of these products. They would thus be the stars of Apple’s traditional March event.
This new postponement pushes the presentation of these products to even later. A revelation in June, at WWDC, could be on the table, even if this event is not the traditional stage for the presentation of new hardware.
Mac sales are expected to drop sharply in early 2023
The same Digitimes report also looks at sales of Apple computers. And its recent predictions are not encouraging for the Cupertino-based tech.
For the first quarter of 2023, this source predicts a 40% to 50% drop in the number of Mac product shipments. Values that compare with the last quarter of 2022.
A drop right after the festive season is common for Apple, but these negative values are usually around 10% to 20%. Falls that could reach 50% are frankly negative predictions and that should ring alarm bells within Apple.
