Apple Is Already Working On M3 Chips According To A New Report
Apple might not have been able to announce a new M2 Mac so far in 2022 but that doesn’t mean that the company isn’t already looking beyond the next round of Apple silicon.
According to a new report, Apple is already testing M3 versions of Mac hardware that will likely arrive at the end of 2023 at the earliest.
That’s according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman who was writing as part of his weekly Power On newsletter. According to him, testing of the new M3 chips is already underway.
I’ve heard that the M2 chips aren’t the only ones in testing within Apple. And if you’re waiting for a new iMac, I’m hearing an M3 version of that desktop is already in the works—though I imagine it won’t launch until the end of next year at the earliest. Also, for those asking, I still think an iMac Pro is coming. It just won’t be anytime soon.
Apple is expected to debut the new M2 Apple silicon in a new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini launch that will take place this year.
Those who are holding out for a new M3 chip will need to wait until next year, with new M2 Pro, M2 Max, and M2 Ultra chips expected to be released before M2 arrives.
