Apple releases MacBooks with new M2 processors

Yesterday, Tuesday, Apple unveiled MacBooks powered by the new and faster “M2 Pro” and “M2 Max” processor chips, in an abrupt launch, weeks before the tech giant’s usual date.

The introduction of new PCs using the latest versions of Apple’s “M2” chips, which it first introduced last year, builds on a decision the company made in 2020 to use semiconductors of its own design after relying on the Intel technology for 15 years.

The new Mac mini starts at $599 and will be available January 24. Pricing for the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros equipped with the latest chips starts at $1,999, compared to $1,299 for the 13-inch model with the M2 chip.

Apple said the device with the new M2 Pro chip has nearly 20 percent in more semiconductors than the M1 Pro and contains twice the amount found in the M2 – helping programs like Adobe Photoshop run heavy loads “faster than ever before”.

Apple usually keeps its own prime conference of the year in March, when it showcases iMac devices and accessories. Bloomberg News reported in earlier that the Apple conference scheduled for this spring could see the launch of the much-anticipated augmented reality glasses.
