Ming-Chi Kuo: Apple's new MacBook Pro 14/16-inch will be mass-produced in Q4 this year

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple's next-generation MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch models will enter mass production in the fourth quarter of 2022.

In a tweet, Ming-Chi Kuo said the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models may still feature chips based on TSMC's latest 5nm process, given TSMC's guidance that revenue from 3nm chip production won't begin until 2023.

Ming-Chi Kuo's information appears to conflict with Taiwanese media reports that the M2 Pro chip may be Apple's first 3nm chip. Digitimes reports that TSMC plans to begin mass production of 3nm chips later this year for upcoming MacBook models and other products.

It should be reliable that TSMC plans to start producing 3nm chips for Apple in the near future, but it depends on which new Mac products are applied first. According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple is developing MacBook Pro, Mac mini and Mac Pro models based on the M2 chip.

The current MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch models, released in October 2021, feature 5nm-based M1 Pro and M1 Max chips.
