Apple has announced new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro and M2 Max processors alongside new Mac mini models via a press release. The new MacBook Pro models come with more powerful processors, and according to the company, they deliver “more performance, advanced connectivity, and the longest battery life ever in a Mac.”
“MacBook Pro with Apple silicon has been a game changer, empowering pros to push the limits of their workflows while on the go and do things they never thought possible on a laptop,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Today the MacBook Pro gets even better. With faster performance, enhanced connectivity, and the longest battery life ever in a Mac, along with the best display in a laptop, there’s simply nothing else like it.”
Apple says the MacBook Pro can last up to 22 hours on a single charge. Both the models support WiFi 6E and advanced HDMI, which supports 8K displays, becoming the first-ever Mac to do so. New MacBook Pro models feature a Liquid Retina XDR display, 1080p FaceTime HD camera, a six-speaker sound system, and studio-quality mics.
