Apple's MacBook Pro 14/16-inch 2022 models will be released in Q4

Apple is expected to update the MacBook Pro product line in the fourth quarter of this year (expected to be 14-inch and 16-inch models in 2022), and is expected to further increase the market share of Mac devices Rate.

Recently, Wintel laptops have been actively clearing inventory. According to industry sources, Wintel manufacturers' inventory is expected to be cleared at least by the first half of 2023, and some Wintel brand manufacturers' inventory is as high as 40-50 weeks. Apple’s MacBook shipments are relatively stable. Digitimes Research expects MacBook shipments to reach 22.18 million units in 2022, down 1.4% year-on-year, but other brands HP, Dell, and Lenovo all saw double-digit declines. Affected by this, the market share of MacBook will exceed double digits for the first time, reaching 10.8%, a five-year high.

Suppliers in Apple's Mac supply chain are preparing for the upcoming MacBook Pro shipments by slowing down the production of existing Macs.

Apple is expected to release new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips in the near future. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports that Apple plans to host an event next month focused on Macs and iPads. Gurman said development work on the updated device is underway and could be available as soon as this fall.

The new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are expected to retain the same design as the October 2021 release models, but with increased M2 Pro and M2 Max chip performance and energy efficiency, according to the news. The chips are still expected to be based on the 5nm process, with a likely increase in GPU core count and RAM compared to the M1 equivalent.

In addition to the refreshed MacBook Pro, Apple may also plan to announce an updated Mac mini with an M2 chip, a new iPad Pro model, and an Apple Silicon version of the Mac Pro at its event next month.
