Apple seems to be ready to introduce new MacBook Pro models on Tuesday, January 17.

Multiple reports point to the tech giant making an announcement, with the usually reliable Mark Gurman of Bloomberg. suggestion the M2 chip is finally coming to Apple’s 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops.

Gurman first reported last October that Apple was preparing new MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, though a release date was unknown at the time. Apple released the M2 chip in June 2022, and the 13-inch model is currently the only MacBook Pro laptop to have it. The only other Apple laptop with the M2 chip is the 2022 MacBook Air.

Gurman said Apple will hold press conferences “later this week,” adding that the embargoes will be lifted on Monday, January 23, allowing reviewers to share their first thoughts on new products.

Citing different sources, other news outlets (Mac Rumors and 9to5Mac among them) also reported Apple’s plan to make an announcement on Tuesday, via the Press Room section of its website. If it does happen, we suggest checking out Apple’s YouTube channel as well, where you can post new videos highlighting its latest MacBook Pro models.

Along with a more powerful chipset, the new MacBook Pros can be the first in line for Wi-Fi 6E, which, if you have a compatible router, will result in better Wi-Fi performance.

To be clear, tomorrow’s reported filing won’t involve the touchscreen MacBooks Apple is rumored to be working on. In fact, the physical design of the new MacBook Pros will likely be the same as its predecessors.

A report just a few days ago suggested that Apple could unveil the new M2 models at its WWDC event in June, but Monday’s development suggests something will happen tomorrow. If so, we’ll be sure to share the news on Digital Trends.

If the announcement takes place this week, it will mark Apple’s first product launch of 2023.
