Apple is planning to release the next-generation Apple Silicon chip for its laptops, almost two years after introducing the first Macs using its own silicon. The company is presently testing third-party programmes on at least nine new Mac models equipped with an M2 processor.

Unreleased Macs have been spotted in app logs, to sources familiar with the situation, implying that Apple is currently conducting final tests on the new PCs before revealing them to the public. The new M2 processor will be used in all new Macs, which are slated to be released later this year.

A MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini with an M2 chip; new MacBook Pros with the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips; and a Mac Pro with an Apple Silicon chip ‘successor to the M1 Ultra processor’. Apple has been working on the new Macs for a while now.


Surprisingly, it appears that Apple is still testing a new Mac mini with the M1 Pro CPU seen in the current MacBook Pro generation. Apple had planned to release high-end versions of the present Mac mini with the M1 Pro and M1 Max CPUs, according to 9to5Mac’s sources, but they were likely canceled to make way for the Mac Studio.

The Studio Display firmware contains references to a new Mac mini model, thus it’s probable that at least some of these Macs will be released soon. Apple could unveil two new Macs in June at WWDC 2022.
