Apple has launched iPhones, AirPods, and Apple Watches, but the most awaited Apple item, the MacBook Pro, has yet to be released. We have compiled all the information regarding the MacBook Pro 2022, you need to know. The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro and M2 Max are ready to take the stage.
14-inch MacBook Pro 2022 Features
Battery Life of MacBook Pro 2022
When looking for laptops, battery life is crucial. The 14-inch MacBook Pro 2022’s battery life is extended to all-day use because of the efficiency of custom Apple Silicon. The battery typically drains quickly during heavy use, but it can last up to 11 hours with regular use. The variable refresh rate of 120 Hz can allow video playback to last up to 17 hours. With the Fast charger, you don’t have to worry about the battery life. Fast charging up to 96W is possible, resulting in a 50% charge in less than half an hour. Only the 16-inch MacBook Pro supports 140W fast charging.
MacBook Pro 2022 Design
Apple kept the aluminum unibody but eliminated the MacBook Pro logo and webcam area, slimming the top and bottom bezel to 3.5mm, and repositioning the display to the edge. The new design is less curved at the bottom and features a chassis that is 0.61 inches thick and flatter. Apple tweaked the ProMotion Technology and introduced the notch, which features a 1080p webcam and allows for more screen real estate in the same size. They improved the keyboard by enclosing it in a black casing.
According to reports, Apple will bring back a few popular ports. The MagSafe Connector, three Thunderbolt 4 ports, an SD card slot, an HDMI port, and a headphone jack are all included with the 14-inch MacBook Pro 2022.
Display of MacBook Pro 2022
MacBook Pro has a Liquid Retina XDR Display, combining all of Apple’s display technologies. Apple is said to introduce an OLED display. The mini LED backlight enables a higher contrast ratio of 1,000,000 to 1 with deeper blacks and greater control over color accuracy. Localized dimming also reduces the halo effect and gives a more accurate picture. The latest MacBook Pro 2022 has a 120Hz refresh rate and an HDR LCD panel with 1600 nit peak brightness. Apple is likely to unveil an OLED display.
The M2 Pro and M2 Max Chips
M2 Pro and M2 Max are the new updates for the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro 2022 models. They can allow up to 12-core CPU cores, an increase over 10-core CPU cores, and 38-core GPU cores, an increase from 32-core GPU cores. The RAM chip can support up to 64 GB of memory, and the onboard storage will stay unchanged, ranging from 512GB to an 8TB SSD. The M2 Pro and M2 max will focus on the graphic side. There are conflicting rumors about the 5nm and 3nm processes. According to Taiwan’s Commercial Times, Apple will use a 3nm chip for the next model. Although Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the revised version will not use 3nm processors, which are still in development.
The latest keyboard with mechanical scissor switches that are simple to operate and resilient is used on the 14-inch MacBook Pro 2022. The touch bar, which caused numerous issues, has been replaced with a full-sized set of function keys. They improved the keyboard by enclosing it in a black casing.
MacBook Pro 2022 Pricing
Because of the new M2 Pro and M2 max updates, we should expect the price of this MacBook Pro to rise. The current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro cost approximately $1200, while the M1 costs roughly $2500. We estimate that Apple will raise the price by $200-$500.
If Apple uses this new technology for the M2 Pro and subsequent models, it is unlikely that it will be available before spring 2023.
The date of the October event has yet to be announced by Apple. The fact that they have yet to tell us a launch date suggests that there is more to the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros than we anticipated.
