With the M2 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air already on shelves, all eyes have turned to Apple’s desktop offerings, namely the Mac Pro and Mac mini.

On the Max Tech YouTube channel, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has revealed some new information about Apple’s upcoming slate of Macs, and what it means for the next round of M2 chips.

Regarding the M2 chip, Gurman expects the same variations as the M1 — Pro, Max, and Ultra, with a possible new Extreme model for the Mac Pro — but doesn’t think it will move to a 3nm process as has been rumoured. He suspects the next-generation process will arrive with the M3 chips in late 2023 or 2024.

In short, Apple has several M2 Macs planned for this fall, including a spec bump for the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Gurman expects the new laptops to get M2 Pro and M2 Max processors with the next refresh but no new features, much like the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Also in line for a refresh this fall is the Mac mini. Gurman said Apple will be updating both the M1 Mac mini and the higher-end Intel version with M2 and M2 Pro chips, respectively, but doesn’t think the machines will have a redesign, as has been rumoured. He said it would be odd for Apple to introduce a new Mac mini design following the launch of the Mac Studio.
