Apple may not wait long to unveil its first products of 2023. Bloomberg‘s Markus Gurmann, 9to5Mac, MacRumors and Front page Tech (aka Jon Prosser) are all claiming that Apple will have a product announcement tomorrow. While most of the details aren’t clear, Gurman does hint that they might be the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro M2 models he reviewed last fall.
At the time, Gurman said these systems would be the same design as the M1 variants released in late 2021. They would focus on new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, which would feature up to 12 CPU cores and 38 GPU cores in the Max. In other words, there would be no touchscreen or other major revisions. You would mainly buy one to get the best possible performance from a Mac laptop.
The new MacBook Pros are imminent (Apple has an announcement tomorrow – with press conferences later this week and embargo lifting next Monday). The new Macs arriving earlier this year were first reported here in October https://t.co/P34OdoMRgZ https://t.co/9JlQ0ueBO1

However, they could be the first Macs to include WiFi 6E. Twitter user Wade Penner sighted an unreleased MacBook Pro in a Canadian wireless database with support for the 6 GHz band of the newer WiFi standard. As long as you have a supporting router, you should see higher maximum speeds, lower latency, and less congestion on a busy local network. Apple’s iPad Pro M2 is already compatible with WiFi 6E.
There were no mentions of other products debuting in the same period, so you might not want to rely on a Mac mini M2 or other revisions. However, if the rumors are true, this could be good news for anyone who’s been holding off on a MacBook Pro to ensure they’re getting the very latest hardware.
