Cheaper 14-inch MacBook Pro coming later in 2022 with M2 chip

The rumor: Apple is going to release a more affordable 14-inch MacBook Pro in the second half of 2022, according to dylandkt (77.5% accurate).

Our take: It sounds like there will be a slight market gap between the redesigned M2 MacBook Air ~$999 and M1 Pro MacBook Pro $1,799…so Apple will be introducing a lower-end 14-inch MacBook Pro for $1,399. I’m just shocked that it will have the same design and ports as the higher-end 14-inch model. This actually sounds like a pretty compelling machine.
