Apple is planning to release fresh MacBook models before of the October event ...

There have been conflicting reports on whether Apple will launch new MacBook Pro models at an October event, alongside new iPads. A new report today comes down in favor, stating that Apple suppliers are planning to offer new versions.

The package of existing MacBook Pro machines is slowing, although the price has plummeted in the context of a more widespread market decline.

Expected October event

The Apple Watch Ultra, Apple Watch Series 8, the Apple Watch SE, and the second-generation AirPods Pro have all launched their new iPhone 14 line-up.

There were also a few things Apple didnt announce, suggesting a separate event is looming. Its widely predicted that this event will take place in October.

Here''s what we expected from an Apple event in October:

Further details have been revealed in our recent presentation.

New MacBook Pro models

It''s unclear what Apple might announce in October, and how it might be put on hold until next year, but Mark Gurman last month suggested that there will be at least two new Macs.

Apple has been working on Mac mini, Mac Pro, and MacBook Pro M2-based versions, so I think the company will expect at least a pair of these machines in about two months. []

According toBloomberg, a next-generation MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and M2 Max processors might be announced in the fall 2022 and spring 2023. Last but not least, a second-generationApple silicon Mac miniis is expected for at least a year now.

MacBook Pro upgrades seem to be needed, although Ming-Chi Kuo said instead to a spring launch for these devices.

New MacBook Pro shipments in preparation

The brief report is published by Digitimes, based on supply-chain sources.

According to industry sources, suppliers are gearing up for the Apples upcoming MacBook Pro series, while the shipment of the existing MacBook Pro models is slowing down.

Apple has been the only company not to be severely affected by the post-lockdown slowing of global PC orders, according to Digitimes Research.

According to sources, Apple is currently the only PC company still withdrawing in orders, as shipment volumes fall by 40-50 percent in contrast to 2021. At present, manufacturers predict recovery will not be held until after the second quarter 2022. []

Quanta Computer, a supplier for Apple, reported significant revenue between July and August. Sources said that some of Quanta''s July expansion was a result of delayed orders from the Shanghai lockdown in the second quarter, while August benefited from the addition of the new MacBook Pro.

Mac sales are expected to remain fairly stable for the rest of the year, as demand for new models offsets the overall market decline. However, this is good news compared to the whole market.

In 2022, Apple''s shipments will see the smallest drop among the top six PC brands. Asustek Computer is expected to see an on-year decrease of 1.4 percent, Lenovo 4.7 percent, Dell 18%, Hewlett-Packard (HP) 22.6%, and Acer 33.2%.
