MacBook Pro 2022 14-inch and 16-inch: Everything we know so far

The MacBook Pro 2022 14-inch and 16-inch are now the most hotly anticipated Apple devices following Apple’s slew of mobile releases at its “Far Out” September event. That event gave us everything from the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro to the new AirPods Pro 2 and Apple Watch Series 8, but now we’re ready for the new laptops.

Apple has a consistent track record when it comes to product announcements, and this year’s expected Apple October event is looking no different. With iPhones, AirPods, and Apple Watches out of the way, it’s time for Apple’s popular line of MacBook Pros to steal the spotlight.

It’s been a year since the outstanding MacBook Pro 14 with M1 Pro arrived, and since then we’ve been introduced to the MacBook Air M2 and 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2. With rumors swirling of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models getting an update this year, what’s the obvious evolution? M2 Pro and M2 Max CPUs. Given the upgrades M2 delivers compared to M1, the next MacBook Pro models are set to be absolute juggernauts in the power department.

After rummaging around the latest leaks and rumors for all things MacBook Pro 2022, here’s everything we know about the new, 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro and M2 Max.

We don’t have an official Apple October event announcement yet, but over the past few years, the Cupertino company has consistently held a keynote during this period — and it’s generally reserved for Mac announcements.

This was true for last year’s “Unleashed” October event, which gave us the refreshed 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. This year, we’re expecting the same, but this time with more of an update than a full refresh.

According to DigiTimes, Apple suppliers are “gearing up for shipments” for the new MacBook Pro models. Industry insiders speaking to the news outlet state that shipments for the existing 16-inch and 14-inch MacBook Pro are slowing down, leaving more room for the new rumored models with upgraded M2 chips to ship — just in time for the expected October event.
