After a rumor that Apple has a product announcement planned for tomorrow, and the discovery of an unreleased MacBook Pro in a Canadian regulatory database, it appears that new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models may finally be imminent. Can

14 16 inch 2021 mbps back to back feature
Ahead of the potential launch, we’ve recap everything we’ve heard so far about the next-generation 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro.

M2 Pro and M2 Max Chips

M2 Pro and Max Features


A major new feature of the next MacBook Pro models is expected to be the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips for faster performance. BloombergMark Gurman said those chips would offer only a “modest” performance improvement over the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips in the current models, as suggested by benchmarks leaked last year.

Wi-Fi 6e

The wireless frequency ranges mentioned in the Canadian regulatory filing indicate that the new MacBook Pro will support Wi-Fi 6e, which extends Wi-Fi to the 6GHz band for greater bandwidth, faster speeds and lower latency. The current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro support standard Wi-Fi 6, which is limited to the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.

fast ram

The new MacBook Pro models are rumored to come equipped with “very high-bandwidth, high-speed RAM,” but details remain unclear. Based purely on speculation, it is possible that the new models could be equipped with Samsung’s latest LPDDR5X RAM with up to 33% increased memory bandwidth with up to 20% lower power consumption.

no design change

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Gurman have both suggested that the new MacBook Pro models will have no external design changes and few other key features.

This aspect won’t be too surprising considering Apple completely redesigned the high-end MacBook Pros in October 2021 with more ports like HDMI and MagSafe, a notch at the top of the display, an all-black keyboard area, and more. So many. MacBooks often go several generations between major hardware changes, so a spec bump in 2023 is a reasonable expectation.
