The rumor: Apple will unveil a new low-end MacBook Pro model in just about a month, according to DigiTimes (60.8% accurate).
- A new iPhone SE, iPad and MacBook Pro will be announced in “early March,” when Apple is rumored to be holding their first event of 2022
- The new MacBook Pro will have a M2 processor inside (suggesting it will be situated at the low-end of the current lineup)
Our take: I doubt that we will see this M2 MacBook Pro before any other M2 computers, like the redesigned MacBook Air or iMac 24-inch. At the same time, l can’t imagine it would be too difficult to put a less-powerful chip in the body of a notebook made for more-powerful chips.
