Apple is expected to launch MacBook Pro M2 model in March with the same design as the current M1 model, instead of improving it closer to the 14-inch and 16-inch versions.
According to AppleInsider , multiple reports say Apple is preparing a special event in March, when the company will launch a new Mac along with a new iPhone SE.
In addition, the latest rumor says a new 13-inch MacBook Pro model with an unchanged design will appear, while the difference is only in the specifications.
The new MacBook Pro model is said to keep the same screen design without the notch and not support the ProMotion feature. The machine will also have a Touch Bar – an element that has been removed from the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro. Although the exterior design seems to remain the same, the inside will be different, especially when the machine uses the M2 chip instead of the M1.
Reportedly, information about this MacBook Pro model is MacRumors from a previous leaker who correctly revealed the existence of the notch on the 14-inch and 16-inch models, although it does not support Face ID.
Earlier, a report on February 2 said that the new low-cost MacBook Pro will remove the Touch Bar, but without the ProMotion screen or mini LED to save costs. There is also speculation that Apple may introduce a new 14-inch screen model with the M2.
Regarding the upcoming M2 chip, this is considered an improvement over the M1 when it has the same number of 8 CPU cores, but comes with a higher clock speed and increased GPU core count from the 7 core and 8 core options. up to 9 cores and 10 cores.
