Unannounced M2 MacBook Pro Found In Regulatory Database
An unannounced M2 MacBook Pro has appeared in a regulatory database, adding fuel to the fire that new Macs will be announced this week.
Following reports that Apple is set to hold press briefings this week and leaks that Apple is ready to announce a new product via press release possibly as soon as tomorrow, the new MacBook Pro now makes plenty of sense.
The device was found in the Canada Radio Equipment List database carrying the model number A2779. It also has the “product marketing name” of MacBook Pro with an “equipment description” of “laptop computer.” It’s worth noting that model number A2779 does not currently exist.
The new filing was spotted by Wade Penner on Twitter who says that the MacBook Pro will support WiFi 6E for the first time, potentially increasing the speed of WiFi throughput for those who have compatible home networks.
If Apple really is announcing new MacBook Pro notebooks this week we can expect them to be powered by new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, although there isn’t much hope of any external refresh — although there is always the possibility of a tweak to colors. That means we can expect the same notch as well as 14 and 16-inch models.
Apple is said to be holding press briefings on Wednesday and Thursday, with a review embargo for Monday, January 23.
