MacBook Pro may get new M2 chipset

Apple is expected to unveil the new iPad, iPad Pro and MacBook Pro with the M2 chip next month, but will it be at an event or just an announcement?

Apple released new iPhones this month, but they won’t be the last of the year. Apple could reportedly unveil new iPads, iPad Pros and even a MacBook Pro M2 chip in October. But it seems that the company is unlikely to hold another event to launch these products.

Mark Gurman from Bloomberg cites industry analysts as suggesting that Apple will release the iPad and MacBook via a press release in October instead of holding a full event. Now, we’re surprised that Apple could go this route to launch a new set of products.

While we sense a lack of interest in hosting an event for the M2-based MacBook Pro, the new iPad and iPad Pro could certainly use some marketing efforts from the Cupertino giant.

Like the iPad Air, the standard iPad is now in need of an update that is long overdue. Leaks suggest that the new iPad may have USB C for charging like other iPads, and Apple may power the tablet with an A14 Bionic chip for better performance and 5G support.

We’re hoping the screen bezels will also shrink, allowing the company to move away from physical touch ID in favor of a fingerprint sensor that sits to the side of the power button, like the iPad Air.

The iPad Pro series could also be upgraded with a new M2 chip that could have up to 16GB of RAM. The regular iPad is also now the most affordable in the lineup, so it’s possible that the upgrade will allow Apple to charge more for its popular tablet. Either way, we’ll keep our eyes open for any possible announcements from Apple about next month’s event, unless it has other ideas for consumers, as the report suggests.
