MacBook Pro 2022 Models Are Reportedly Delayed Once Again
The rumored MacBook Pros with the M2 Pro and Max chips from apple have now suffered yet another delay if as per the latest from the rumor grapevine.
And according to a report from DigiTimes, as highlighted by Tom’s Hardware, these very MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch models have been again delayed. And if you recall, you should know that these refreshes originally were slated to make their debut at the end of 2022. Additional rumors recently claimed that we should be seeing the laptops in Q1 of this year, but at the moment, DigiTimes is now saying that they will not be out in the early parts of 2023.
MacBook Pro 2022 Models Arrival Date
As it has always been with the grapevine, of course, we need to be very cautious in regard to accepting this very development. One thing however that has not been shared is when these MacBook Pros will be arriving.
In his newsletter, Mark Gurman has just revealed that the revamped MacBook Pros are set to be making their arrival in the first half of 2023, whereas the well-known leaker prior to this was asserting a possible first-quarter launch date. That however would seem to suggest that the launch date has now been pushed back second quarter of 2023, then.
MacBook Shipments Are Set To Drop Greatly This Quarter
DigiTimes also reveals to us that MacBook shipments are going to drop greatly this quarter and that I could be around 40% to 50% lower than the final quarter of 2022. And while a drop is expected to drop from Q4 to Q1 as it is now transitioning from a busy sales time to a very quiet one, the magnitude of this very decrease, if anything about it is true, is eye-catching.
