Apple's Mac lineup is set to dazzle in 2024 and beyond, with rumors of a larger iMac, a powerful M3 Ultra chip, and an OLED MacBook Pro. Here's what the rumor mill believes.
Supply chain reports suggest Apple will continue to increase its use of TSMC's 3 nanometer wafers through 2024 with the M3 Ultra said to debut in a Mac Studio around the 2024 WWDC timeframe — but perhaps without a refreshed Mac Pro.
In June, Apple's WWDC took place, Apple hit $3 trillion again, there was a slim chance of a tech titan cage match, and the not-so quiet launch of the Apple Vision Pro, too.
Apple's next batch of M3 Mac launches may occur in March with New MacBook Air models, but there could be a long wait until M3-equipped versions of the Mac Studio and Mac Pro surface.
There may be a long wait for the next Mac Pro to surface, if another one comes at all, with a report offering that the desktop Mac model is on thin ice.
Apple has finally introduced its Apple Silicon Mac Pro. It is still a performance powerhouse, but most "Pro" users should get a Mac Studio instead.
Apple updated the Mac Studio to M2 during WWDC 2023, at the same time as introducing an Apple Silicon Mac Pro. This is what's different between two Macs that are both very different, but also strikingly similar.
Apple has revealed that "certain models" of internal SATA drives can be dismounted by the New Mac Pro.
Geekbench has revealed performance statistics for the M2 Ultra chip inside the 2023 Mac Pro and it has over double the performance of the older Intel-based machine.
