The supply chain is preparing to ship Apple's new MacBook Pro 14/16-inch

Apple's suppliers are preparing to produce and ship Apple's next-generation 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, which are expected to be equipped with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. Suppliers in Apple's Mac supply chain are preparing for the upcoming MacBook Pro shipments by slowing down the production of existing Macs. DigiTimes pointed out that following the release of the second generation of AirPods Pro last week, Apple's suppliers are also reducing the production of the first generation of AirPods Pro.

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 increase the performance and energy efficiency of the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. 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.
