Analyst Mark Gurman has given some of the first data about smartphones that would feature Apple’s next generation of M2 CPUs, according to GSMArena. The new MacBook Air, some MacBook Pros, the new Mac Mini, and the Mac Pro are all on this list.
Devices using M2 chip are being tested by Apple
The M2 chip in the upcoming MacBook Air will have 8 CPU cores and 10 GPU cores. Gurman also mentioned a MacBook Pro with an undetermined screen size and specs similar to the M2 MacBook Air’s processor.
The M2 Pro and M2 Max CPUs will be used in the next generation of MacBook Pros, which will be 14 and 16 inches in size. According to reports, the M2 Max has 12 CPU cores and 38 GPU cores.
Furthermore, Apple is working on a Mac Mini with the M2 Pro chip and a new Mac Pro with the M2 Max chip.
Apple could possibly release a more powerful version of the CPU, the M2 Ultra or M2 Extreme, as a successor to the M1 Ultra chip used in the Mac Studio.
Will there be iPhones using the M2 chip?
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will reportedly use the M2 chip instead of the A16 Bionic chip seen in the iPhone 14 and 14 Max, according to recent leaks (albeit they have not been widely accepted). Many experts, however, believe this is improbable at this time. The A16 processor is predicted to be powerful enough to outperform all mobile competitors. As a result, Apple will not consider using the M2 chip in the iPhone.
WWDC 2022: date and Apple’s plan
The WWDC 2022 event will take place next June. This is a major software-focused event. However, Apple also often talks about its plans for hardware devices at WWDC.
Therefore, it is likely that Apple will talk about devices using the M2 chip at this event.Even Apple may announnce some hardware devices at this event.
