As the 2022 year is still fresh, Apple has many new products coming our way as they have planned for the future. However, they have something entirely new and exciting for this year’s lineup this time around. 

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple plans for a “slew of upgrades this year.” Since 2020, the major tech company has shifted away from Intel’s chips in favor of its M1 version. The M1 chips were seen in the 2020 MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, and MacBook Air. This 2022, Apple plans to transition its renowned M1 chip with a brand new M2 chip, creating an even more powerful laptop that serves all the purposes it had done before but more effectively and efficiently in every way. 

Gurman has also listed out which Macs could appear next month. He has listed a new Mac mini featuring an M1 Pro chip and a larger iMac Pro with M1 Pro and M1 Max chip options. Regarding product updates with the M2 chips, Gurman expects a 13-inch MacBook Pro, a Mac mini, and a 24-inch iMac with an M2 chip and a fully redesigned MacBook Air.

For the brand new M2, graphics are expected to get a much more significant boost which is a massive plus for those that like to game or other activities that require a strong CPU like photo and video editing for those large files to handle. The M2’s CPU is expected to be much speedier than the M1 but should retain the same eight-core architecture. A Pro and Max version of the M2 is expected to arrive in 2023. It remains to be seen what Apple will reveal in March.
