Even though the design of the 13-inch MacBook Pro is antiquated and dates back to 2016, Bloomberg said today that the laptop would continue to be part of Apple’s portfolio. An updated model would be developed in conjunction with other new Macs.
The source does not include any other information on the forthcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro; as a result, it is still being determined whether the laptop will have any external design changes or will continue to be the last new Mac that Apple sells with the Touch Bar. Since the story does not provide any additional information, it remains to be seen whether the laptop will receive any changes. The M2 chip and support for high-impedance headphones were the most recent updates to the device that Apple released at WWDC in June of last year.
According to a prior source, the upcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro will be powered by Apple’s M3 CPU, which the firm has yet to disclose publicly. It has yet to be discovered when the laptop will be available for purchase. Still, its introduction is likely to take place later this year.
Gurman stated that Apple is also working on a larger 15-inch MacBook Air with a processor comparable to the M2 chip, a new 24-inch iMac, an improved 13-inch MacBook Air, and a Mac Pro tower powered by Apple silicon. In addition, Gurman stated that Apple is working on a new 24-inch iMac. Last but not least, he anticipates that revised versions of the 16-inch and 14-inch MacBook Pro models equipped with M3 Pro and M3 Max CPUs will be available sometime in the first half of 2024.
