Next-generation 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will enter mass production in the fourth quarter of 2022, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.


In a tweetKuo said that given TSMC’s guidance indicated that revenue from 3nm chip production will not begin until 2023, the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models may still have chips based on TSMC’s latest 5nm process.

Kuo’s information seems to conflict with a report from Taiwan’s Commercial Times that claimed the M2 Pro chip may be Apple’s first 3nm chip.

While the situation is a little confusing right now, it’s clear from reports that TSMC plans to begin production of 3nm chips for Apple in the near future, so we’ll have to wait and see which Macs they appear in first. According to Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman, Apple has M2-based MacBook Pro, Mac mini, and Mac Pro models in development.

The current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models were released in October 2021 and have 5nm-based M1 Pro and M1 Max chip options.
