New MacBook Pros with upgraded M2 Pro power are expected to be released next month

New MacBook Pros with upgraded M2 Pro power are expected to be released next month ...

It seems like we may have to wait a little longer for a new MacBook Pro.

In his most recent Bloomberg (opens in a new tab) email, reporter Mark Gurman suggests that the new M2 Pro/M2 Max-powered 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro will not be released in November not October. This means that the most recent Apple laptops will not be announced alongside the new iPad Pro 2022, which Gurman suggests will be released the week of October 24.

These developments are non-shocking, as Gurman states in his reporting. Apple has a quarterly earnings call on October 27 and will sometimes time product launches to loosely coincide with its earnings report. So launching the iPad Pro alongside that call isnt a long stretch. In addition to that, Apple has also released laptops in November in previous years, with MacBook Pros previously launched in November in both 2019 and 2020.

While not a guarantee, however, the historical findings coupled with the Gurmans track record of successful analysis give us some confidence for these scheduled release windows.

macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16.1

MacOS Ventura and iPadOS 16.1 will be launched later this year with full support for the new iPad Pros. Both operating systems have been delayed since they were announced at WWDC 2022, but now are on track. Both macOS Ventura will be able to launch simultaneously, but it appears that it will have to wait until the new MacBook Pro models are released.

Although MacOS Venturas has surfaced, we have discovered a key factor in the iPadOS 16 delays. Stage Manager is a new feature on the MacBook and iPad that allows you to organize your apps and windows into a more intuitive environment to improve your workflow. It also allows you to push apps and windows onto an external monitor and manage them on that monitor.

Unfortunately, this Stage Manager external monitor feature is unclear what has resulted in iPadOS 16 being delayed for so long. Apple''s solution appears to have been to remove the feature entirely, although Stage Manager will be supported by external monitors at a later date.

Projected Apple lineup for the rest of 2022

The Apple lineup for the remainder of the year will be presented in the Gurmans newsletter, which is largely in line with our expectations. This month, we should see a new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2022) alongside iPadOS 16.1, which is both expected to come with fresher M2 silicon, allowing them to have a decent power upgrade for Apples powerhouse tablets.

There is a rumored 10-inch iPad (2022) that might be released at the same time as the rest of Apples tablets. This device is alleged to have a USB-C port and a transition to a design similar to the iPad Pro, so it will be curious to see if this iPad is a significant design upgrade compared to the iPad Pros that is rumored to be unchanged.

The new MacBook Pros and macOS Ventura should be first introduced in November. Other MacBook Pros are largely unchanged from the 14-inch MacBook Pro (2021) and 16-inch MacBook Pro (2021) except for upgrading the chipset to the new M2 Pro and M2 Max silicon.

Finally, there are some Apple devices in the works that we anticipate will happen in 2022, but we do not have a suggestion date yet. The Mac mini (2022) might give the Mac mini desktop computer a much-needed boost, thus it''s unlikely to happen if it comes out this year. There''s also a rumored Apple TV (2022) that will include an A14 Bionic chipset and 4GB of RAM. While this is a performance upgrade, it remains to be seen if an
