M3 Pro/Max-Powered High-End MacBook Pro And Mac mini To Arrive Next Year

Apple will release a number of high-end Macs based on variants of the M3 chips in 2024 according to a new report.

Apple is already expected to announce M3 versions of the MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro later this year.

This latest news comes via Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman in his latest Power On newsletter. According to Gurman a new M3 version of the Mac mini will arrive, but not for a little while yet. The same can be said of the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro notebooks that will be powered by the M3 Pro and M3 Max chips. Gurman believes that they will “probably” debut in the middle of 2024.

Gurman said in last week’s report that we can expect the first M3 Macs to arrive as soon as October of this year, with a 24-inch iMac refresh thought to also finally be in the works. As for the chip itself, it’s expected to be based on TSMC’s 3nm manufacturing process.

The change from a 5nm manufacturing process should allow the new chips to be more performant while also using less energy and, presumably, generating less heat.

We can also expect the same 3nm chips to appear in updated iPad Pro tablets, also likely in or around the October timeframe. That chip will likely eventually be used in other tablets including the iPad Air, too.
