On Tuesday, Apple announced new Macs with the M2 Pro or M2 Max chips, the company’s most powerful processors yet for MacBooks and the Mac mini.
The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops were updated by the company, and both can now be set up with the most recent processors.
Additionally, Apple announced support for the M2 or M2 Pro chips in an update to its Mac mini computer. The Mac Pro is the last computer that can be set up with an Intel processor because Apple no longer sells a Mac mini with an Intel processor.
In October, Apple’s chief financial officer, Luca Maestri, issued a warning that the company’s Mac sales would decline annually in the December quarter. That might be due, in part, to the fact that Apple did not deliver these computers in time for the holiday shopping season.
Customers may feel the pinch from inflation or spend more cautiously in response to fears of a potential recession, so the updated Macs are launching into an uncertain economic environment.
This month, Apple is expected to release its earnings report. It reported Mac revenue of $10.85 billion for the December quarter in January 2022, an increase of 25% year over year.
With the M2 chip, the Mac mini starts at $599, which is $100 less than the previous model and $1,299 with the M2 Pro. The new MacBook Pro with a 14-inch screen costs $1,999. The model of the 16-inch MacBook Pro will run you at least $2,499. All of them will be available on January 24, but customers can order computers on Tuesday.
