The 14-inch And 16-inch M2 MacBook Pros Have Reportedly Been Delayed Yet Again – When Will They Be Available?

Please give me my new laptop!

The next generation 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 chipsets are reportedly being delayed from their original early 2023 release date. Apple, please! All I want is my new laptop.

Remember how I explained why you should wait for the M2 Pro and M2 Max MacBook Pros? According to Digitimes, these have been “delayed once again,” so Apple wants to put me in the most awkward position possible.

What exactly is going on?

It all started with unnamed supply chain sources claiming that MacBook shipments will be cut in half in the first quarter of 2023. This is the time when we were all expecting to see the new pro-line systems arrive, so any decreases in predictions here indicate that trouble is brewing.

This comes on the heels of what Apple’s CFO Luca Maestri described as a “challenging year,” with “Mac revenue declining substantially…during the December quarter.” So, what exactly is Apple doing wrong here? And when can we expect these long-awaited MacBook Pros to be released?

When can we expect to purchase one?

While there is no revised launch window provided in the report, two things should give us a good idea. Apple’s chip supplier TSMC began working on 3-nanometer chipsets in late December, and Gurman claims the chips will only offer marginal performance gains in their current 5-nanometer state.

Could Apple be waiting a little longer for the new chips to make a bigger splash than the powerful 13th Gen Intel CPUs and RTX 40 Series Laptop GPUs? Maybe.

Historically, the turnaround time from production to launch has been around 10 months, but there have been outliers where Apple has pushed the accelerator and spun out innovations faster.

So…summer or (at the very least) early Q3? One can fantasize. However, because of the delay, an M1 Pro MacBook Pro is still a pretty good buy for a little while longer!
