What you need to know
- A new M2 MacBook Pro is tipped for a March release.
- A new leak claims the device will feature the same design as the M1 MBP.
- It will also drop the Touch Bar, and is expected to feature an M2 Apple silicon chip.
A new leak claims that Apple's rumored new 13-inch MacBook Pro will debut with a design similar to the recent MacBook Pro upgrade without the controversial notch.
The report claims the design will be the same as the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1. MacRumors says that this information comes from the same source that leaked that the previous MacBook Pro would adopt the notch when it was announced last year. However, that information was publicly available, whereas today's new leak is not. The report does not provide any further information about where the news comes from.
As the report notes, if this information is correct the only change in the upcoming MacBook Pro will be the new M2 processor, the second generation of Apple silicon that follows the M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max. Multiple reports from various respected sources now indicate a new MacBook is close at hand.
