It appears like the wait for a new MacBook Pro will not be too long.
Mark Gurman, writing for Bloomberg(opens in new tab), speculates that the new M2 Pro/M2 Max-powered 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro will be released in November rather than October. As a result, the new iPad Pro 2022, which Gurman predicts will be released the week of October 24th, will not be revealed alongside the latest Apple computers.
However, as Gurman notes in his article, these events should not come as a surprise. Apple’s quarterly earnings call is on October 27th, and the company has a history of releasing new products on or around the same time each quarter. It is therefore not out of the question that the iPad Pro would debut at the same time. Apple has a history of releasing laptops in November; in both 2019 and 2020, the MacBook Pro was introduced in November.
These expected release windows are, of course, not a guarantee, but we have some confidence in them based on historical trends and Gurman’s history of accurate analysis.
macOS Ventura and Ipados 16.1
Expect macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16.1 to debut later this year with full support for the new hardware. There have been setbacks in the development of both operating systems since they were revealed at WWDC 2022, but things are now looking up. iPadOS 16.1 is anticipated to debut at the same time as the two new iPad Pros in 2022, as shown by the devices’ estimated release timeframes. macOS Ventura’s release date may coincide with that of the new MacBook Pro models, or it may be delayed until then.
Though the problems with macOS Ventura have been mostly overlooked, the reasons for the delays in the release of iPadOS 16 have not been completely mysterious. With the new Stage Manager tool on the MacBook and iPad, you may arrange your open windows and applications in a way that is more conducive to your work. It also allows you to manage programs and windows on an external display while using your tablet.
This Stage Manager function, allowing for an external monitor, maybe what has slowed down the release of iPadOS 16. It appears that Apple’s response was to disable the feature entirely; however, support for external monitors in Stage Manager for iPadOS is rumored to be coming in the near future.
Projected Apple Lineup for the Rest of 2022
A predicted Apple lineup for the remainder of the year is laid out in Gurman’s newsletter, and it’s pretty much what we were expecting. A new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2022) and iPadOS 16.1 are expected this month. Apple’s powerful tablets may get a nice boost in performance thanks to the inclusion of the newer M2 chipset in these two products.
There is also talk of a 10-inch iPad (2022) that could debut alongside Apple’s other tablets. It will be interesting to see if there is a significant design update for this iPad in comparison to the reported unmodified design of the iPad Pro, given that this tablet is rumored to gain a USB-C connector and move to a design comparable to the iPad Pro.
We then anticipate receiving the new MacBook Pros with macOS Ventura in the month of November. They are otherwise identical to the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros of the same year, with the exception of using the more powerful M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets. If you don’t require this tremendous performance bump, now might be the greatest time to buy a MacBook Pro because of our current sales.
To round things off, we know that Apple is working on a few products that might be released in 2022, but we haven’t settled on a specific date for their introduction just yet. If the Mac mini (2022) is released this year, it could finally offer the Mac small desktop computer a long-overdue update. Moreover, Gurman has suggested that the upcoming Apple TV (2022) will feature a powerful A14 Bionic processor and 4GB of RAM. While this is a significant improvement in performance, it is unclear whether or not the new chipset alone will be enough to sway consumers.
