Tomorrow, leaker Jon Prosser advises to “keep an eye” on Apple’s Newsroom.
Apple has introduced new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max processors, as well as a new Mac mini with M2 and M2 Pro processors. Macworld will provide comprehensive coverage of the new products, so stay tuned.
Apple has traditionally experienced a slow month in January, but this may soon change. Despite the fact that the company has not introduced a new product in January for over a decade, a new rumor suggests that something will be released this week.
Jon Prosser, an Apple leaker, tweeted via his FrontPageTech account on Monday, “keep an eye on apple’s newsroom tomorrow,” which likely indicates that something new will be released. In October, Apple launched the 10th-generation iPad, the M2 iPad Pro, and the Apple TV 4K via press release.

As we noted last week, January is typically not a busy month for Apple product releases. In the past, Apple began the year with a flurry of new products, such as the original iPhone, which debuted 16 years ago this month. However, the company has moved away from January announcements in recent years.
Since January 2010, when Apple introduced the iPad, there have been smaller releases, including updates to Logic (2018), GarageBand (2017), and Final Cut Pro (2012), and the Mac App Store opened in 2011. However, January has been the least exciting month of the year.
What could this possibly be? Several Macs are rumored to be coming this year, including new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, an M2 Mac mini and higher-end Mac mini to replace the Intel model, and a 15-inch MacBook Air. An Apple silicon update to the Mac Pro is also rumored to be coming this year, though it is less likely to be announced via press release. Apple’s plans for an AR/VR headset are also the subject of intensifying rumors, though it will likely receive its own spring event. Tuesday’s news appears to be the type of announcement that does not constitute an event.
Prosser does not have the best track record when it comes to predicting rumors, but he has accurately predicted announcements of this type in the past. In April 2020, he accurately predicted the release of the iPhone SE, and in December 2020 he accurately predicted the release of the AirPods Max.
