Ming-Chi Kuo: MacBooks with M3 sockets may not appear in 2023 – Computer – News

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple may not release MacBooks with the M3 SoC this year. Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman previously said that the first Macs with M3 sockets will appear in October 2023. Apple may release another Mac model with M3 SoC this year.

“It appears that Apple will not launch any new MacBook models (equipped with M3 series SoCs) before the end of this year.” Kuo shares on social media X. Kuo specifically mentions “MacBooks” here and doesn’t talk about “Macs” in general. However, previous sources indicate that MacBooks with the M3 SoC will arrive in October. For example, Gurman said in July that the updated iMac 24, MacBook Air 13, and MacBook Pro 13 could have a successor to the M2 SoC.

Both Gurman and Kuo are generally reliable sources when it comes to future Apple products. It’s possible that Apple has recently changed its original course. For example, Apple may not be able to produce enough M3 plugs for future laptops. The M3 SoC will likely be produced using TSMC’s 3nm process, but sooner 9to5Mac reported Already the Taiwanese chip manufacturer is struggling to meet high demand from Apple.

As a general rule, MacBooks sell more than other types of Macs. So there is a possibility that Apple will launch a new 24-inch iMac with M3 SoC this year. In addition to the standard M3 SoC, more powerful Pro and Max versions of the M3 series are also expected, although Apple will bring Macs with those. Socs will reportedly not be released until 2024.
