Here are all the Macs rumored to be launching in 2023

If you’re a Mac fan, 2022 may have left you a little disappointed. That’s because Apple’s slate of Macs was surprisingly light last year, with far fewer Macs released than we expected. The good news is that this means we’ll get a lot more Macs in 2023, starting with Spring event almost. But what exactly do we hope to see?

In this guide, we’ve rounded up every Mac we expect to launch in 2023. From powerful desktops to laptops thin and light, there could be something for everyone over the next twelve months.

Apple Silicon Mac Pro

While nearly every Mac has at least one model with an Apple silicon chip, there’s one device that hasn’t moved on yet: the Mac Pro. Maybe Apple needed more time to perfect a chip that can meet the demands of power users. Now, it looks like the company is almost ready to unveil its edge computing backbone.

the Mac Pro rumored It was a bit of a bumpy road, though. First, we learned about the ultra-powerful chip that Apple was developing for the Mac Pro — which is M2 Xtreme — apparently abandoned, with Apple settling for the lesser M2 Ultra. Then came the news that the next Mac Pro would have none new design No user upgradeable memory.

This is all disappointing news, so we’ll have to see if the first Apple Silicon Mac Pro will appeal to the demanding users it’s targeting. The device is expected at a spring event in the coming months, so we won’t have long to find out.

MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch

Over the years, Apple has made a habit of releasing new MacBook Pro models in the fall. It didn’t happen in 2022 (the first time since 2000, in fact), which means Apple’s professional-level laptops are currently past due.

On the positive side, The new MacBook Pro In 2023 – but we won’t see any earth-shaking changes. The devices are expected to get new chipsets, namely the M2 Pro and M2 Max, which will be modest upgrades from the existing M1 Pro and M1 Max. Other than that, we don’t think there will be many other changes, with the chassis and screen likely to remain the same.

Right now, these MacBook Pro models are slated for Apple’s rumored spring event. Looking at historical trends, that will likely come down either in March or April.

The 15-inch MacBook Air

Even though the MacBook Air is 15 years old, Apple has never deviated from the 11-inch and 13-inch sizes. However, if the rumors are true, that could all change later this year.

Numerous sources have claimed that Apple is not just working on a bigger one The 15-inch MacBook Air But it could launch sometime in 2023. That will give MacBook Air fans a second size to choose from for the first time since abandoning the 11-inch model in 2016.

Speaking details, rumors claim that the 15-inch MacBook Air will get a 15.5-inch display. Other than that, it’s likely an extended version of The 13-inch MacBook Air. OLED screens It seems in the worksbut it won’t be ready until 2024 at the earliest.

The next generation Mac mini

Aside from the Mac Pro, there is another Mac still with an Intel chip: the Mac mini. While this computer offers Apple’s silicon models, they’re still using last-generation M1 chips. All of this means that the Mac mini range is due to the upgrade.

This upgrade is expected to come in Apple spring event, as the Mac mini will get an M2 chipset and possibly an M2 Pro option. This means that we have finally seen the Intel Mac mini discontinued, a zombie computer Powered by an old processor.

There are conflicting rumors about what other changes we should expect in the next Mac mini. Both journalist Mark Gurman and leakster John Prosser have claimed that the device will contain Updated design And more ports. But analyst Ming-Chi Kuo confirmed The Mac mini will likely use the same design as the current model. We’ll likely find out at the spring event, so watch this space.

iMac Pro

Approximately since then iMac Pro is discontinued In 2021, there have been rumors that Apple is working on a successor. Now, it looks like the company might be almost ready to reveal the PC to the world, with the release date falling somewhere in the late stages of 2023.

At the moment it is not clear if the device will be classified as an iMac Pro or just a larger iMac. If it’s the former, expect “professional” design choices (think silver and space gray), while the latter will likely embrace bright colors. The current 24-inch iMac.

Either way, we expect the big iMac to adopt chips in the M3 generation, most likely the M3 Pro and M3 Max. It could also come with a high-end screen, possibly like the ones from Apple Pro Display XDR.

24-inch iMac

Just as the iMac Pro can make a comeback, the 24-inch iMac It is also due for an update. The current model was released in the spring of 2021, and two years is the time for a new version.

Like the iMac Pro, we can expect the next iMac to be equipped with it M3 generation chips, although in this case we would expect an M3 and nothing more advanced like the M3 Pro. It will likely continue with the same colorful designs as the current model.

Little is known about the next iMac at this point, which indicates that the update will probably be fairly minor, possibly limited to just a chip upgrade. Rumors point to a late 2023 announcement date, so we’ll likely have a while to wait just yet.

What about the 13-inch MacBook Pro?

The 13-inch MacBook Pro has a sore thumb in the Apple Mac lineup and is a strong contender to be The worst MacBook from Apple. It has similar performance and fewer ports Compared to the M2 MacBook AirHowever, they cost more. Could we see a new version in 2023?

This seems unlikely, given that the 13-inch MacBook Pro was last updated at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2022. We doubt Apple will introduce a new version just a year after the introduction of the latest model.

Will Apple drop it from the Mac menu instead? This is not confirmed at this time. While we’d like Apple to do this and streamline its Mac offering, that would require the company to lower the price The 14-inch MacBook Pro So he can sell at least one MacBook Pro for a reasonable price. That doesn’t seem far-fetched, so the 13-inch model will likely continue into 2023—though we’d prefer that.
