At least on MacBook, it seems that the versions with M3 Chip would not arrive this year, due to supply problems.
What is Apple’s next step? After the Keynote event where everything that Apple will launch this year has been presented, Apple begins to prepare the next one. As almost always happens, The beginning of the year means the renewal of processors in work deviceslike MacBooks.
A while ago we told you everything that could be inside the M3 Chips, Apple’s new generation. But, according to new reports, The new updated Macbooks would not arrive until next yeardespite the fact that there were rumors that at least one model was going to be updated for the Christmas period.
There would be no MacBooks with M3, according to rumors
One of the best-known Apple analysts and insiders is Ming-Chi Kuo. Through his Twitter account (now X), has given very bad news despite being in a launch season. According to Kuo, Apple would no longer plan to launch any MacBook models with M3 chips, at least in the season before the end of this year.
One possibility is that Apple simply can’t make enough M3 chips for its laptops, which are much higher volume products than its desktop Macs. We’ve already heard that TSMC, Apple’s chip manufacturing partner, is struggling to meet its customers’ demand for 3nm chips.
According to the first leaks we have had about the M3 Chip, Apple is expected to gradually update its processorsfirst with a 13-inch Macbook Pro, then with a 24-inch MacBook Air and iMac, and finally all the professional models that will come in spring-summer.
Kuo has been very aware of the launch of the M3 chip. In fact, this same insider, inspired by the calendar that Apple has followed in recent years, had mentioned that this same year the basic M3 models could be presented and the professional or more powerful models could be presented at the beginning of the year.
As you mentioned in your Tweet, This possible delay may be due to problems in the supply chain., this is because TSMC has had problems with creation and development. Because? They will be Apple’s first 3nm processors, so it needs to be launched without obvious errors.
If everything goes well with the A17 Bionic chip (the M3 will be based on this processor), then there may be more details about the M3 Chipseven some official announcement even if it takes a while for the new computers to come out.
Will any M3 models be released this year? The tweet only states that there are no ‘signs of a new Macbook’, so we may have been given a clue here: the new iMac coming out this year may have M3 inside.
