Apple will unveil the new MacBook Pros today, reports claim

Apple looks set to unveil new MacBook Pro models on Tuesday, January 17.

Multiple reports indicate that the tech giant has made an announcement, Bloomberg’s usually reliable Mark Gurman suggesting the M2 chip will finally come to Apple’s 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops.

Gurman first reported in October that Apple was preparing new MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, although at the time the release date was unknown. Apple released the M2 chip in June 2022, and the 13-inch model is currently the only MacBook Pro laptop to have it. The only other Apple laptop with an M2 chip is the 2022 MacBook Air.

Gurman said Apple will hold press conferences “later this week,” adding that the embargoes will lift on Monday, January 23, allowing reviewers to share their first thoughts on the new products.

Citing various sources, other media outlets — Mac Rumors and 9to5Mac among them — also reported Apple’s plan to make an announcement on Tuesday via the Newsroom section of its website. If it does, we suggest you also check out Apple’s YouTube channel, where they may release new videos highlighting the latest MacBook Pro models.

Along with a more powerful chipset, the new MacBook Pro may be the first in line to feature Wi-Fi 6E, which, if you have a compatible router, will result in better Wi-Fi performance.

To be clear, today’s reported reveal will not involve the touchscreen MacBooks that Apple is rumored to be working on. In fact, the physical design of the new MacBook Pros will likely be the same as their predecessors.

A report a few days ago suggested that Apple might unveil the new M2 models at its Worldwide Developers Conference event in June, but today’s development suggests that something will happen today. If it does, we’ll be sure to share the news on Digital Trends.

If the announcement happens this week, it will mark Apple’s first product launch since 2023.
