Apple has today announced the long-awaited upgrade to the MacBook Pro, now featuring the M2 Pro and M2 Max SoCs with up to 96GB of memory in a Press Release along with an upgraded Mac mini with M2 and M2 Pro.
Earlier with the 2021 MacBook Pro, the Space Gray variant did not come with its respective color-matched MagSafe 3 Cable. Rather, it shipped with the Silver MagSafe 3 cable – the same cable that came in the box with the Silver MacBook Pro.
Apple later addressed this with the M2 MacBook Air in 2022 by offering four matching colors of the MagSafe 3 cable for the first time.
This has now been extended to the New 2023 MacBook Pro models as well. One subtle but notable change with these new models is that they now ship with color-matched MagSafe charging cables. With the new 2023 MacBook Pro, the Space Gray variant of 14-inch and 16-inch models will come with its matching Space Gray MagSafe 3 Cable, while the Silver variant of 14-inch and 16-inch models will come with its matching Silver MagSafe 3 Cable.
The new MacBook Pro 14-inch starts at $1,999 or $1,849 for education with the M1 Pro featuring a 10-Core CPU, 16-Core GPU, 16GB of Unified Memory, and 512GB of SSD Storage. The 14-inch model can offer up to a 12-Core CPU, 19-Core GPU, 32GB of Unified Memory, and 8TB of SSD Storage on the M2 Pro Variant and it can go up to offering a 12-Core CPU, 38-Core GPU, 96GB of Unified Memory and 8TB of SSD Storage on the M2 Max Variant.
The new MacBook Pro 16-inch on the other hand starts at $2,499 or $2,299 for education with the M2 Pro featuring a 12-Core CPU, 19-Core GPU, 16GB of Unified Memory, and 512GB of SSD Storage. The 16-inch model can offer up to 32GB of Unified Memory and 8TB of SSD Storage on the M2 Pro Variant and it can offer up to a 12-Core CPU, 38-Core GPU, 96GB of Unified Memory, and 8TB of SSD Storage on the M2 Max Variant. All models are available in two finishes: Space Gray and Silver, and can be ordered now and will be available on Tuesday, January 24th. However, in some regions like Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, New Zealand, and Singapore, the new MacBook Pro will be available beginning Friday, February 3.
