According to Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, Apple has started testing at least nine Mac models with four different M2 chips, which suggests that Apple is preparing to release them soon.

Apple tests the mentioned devices with the help of external applications from the App Store, and the information from them gives us a better insight into what we can expect from the company’s next line of computers.

One of the devices being tested is a MacBook Air with an M2 chip, and it has 8 CPU cores and 10 graphics card cores. Earlier reports have suggested that the next MacBook Air will undergo a major redesign, which includes a thinner frame, more ports, and MagSafe charging.

Apple is also reportedly testing several Mac mini computers, with M2 and M2 Pro chips, as well as the more affordable M2 MacBook Pro with the same specifications as the aforementioned MacBook Air.


Gourmet also mentions that the company is testing new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops, with 64GB of memory, which will use M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.

Finally, there is the new Mac Pro, which will use the successor to the M1 Ultra chip. The M1 Ultra was recently released and represents Apple’s most powerful chipset, powered by Mac Studio.

Mark Gurman mentions that there are no guarantees that Apple will release all the models it is currently testing, but he believes that the new MacBook Air and Mac mini, as well as the more affordable MacBook Pro, are almost certain for this year.
