There are speculations that Apple is working on the M2 chip, which is likely to be dubbed the M2, and these processors are expected to be utilised in devices such as a revamped MacBook Air and a new version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
Today, 9to5Mac reports that Apple will release a 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 chip and a MacBook Air with an M2 chip later this year. Ming Chi Kuo recently predicted that the next generation MacBook Air will employ either the M1 or an improved version of it. 9to5Mac, however, claims that Kuo’s forecast is inaccurate.
However, our solid sources tell us that the new MacBook Air is being created using the M2 processor, contrary to what analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks.
A single model of the next-generation MacBook Air, codenamed J413, is believed to ship with the M2 graphics chip.
In the case of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, 9to5Mac believes that Apple may simply refer to the new computer as a “MacBook.”
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, we’ve already heard a lot about the next-generation MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro, which are expected to be completely redesigned. On the M2 chip, which is likely to include an 8-core CPU, Gurman has also released some information on the 9 and 10-core GPU choices.
Although a release date has not been announced, M2 computers are expected to be available before the end of the year.
