Predictions for Apple’s WWDC keynote continue to emerge, with Bloomberg’s Mark German expecting Apple to announce “several” new Mac models during the event. In a tweet On Wednesday, Gurman reiterated that in addition to launching a new set of PCs, the tech giant will also introduce a mixed reality headset and a new version of its operating system. On Thursday, he seemed to confirm that at least one new Mac is on the way. It’s the latest in a flurry of revelations for Apple’s developer conference, which begins on June 5.
Gurman also reported Wednesday that Apple appears to be readying the launch of a line of professionally focused desktop computers, as the company is said to be testing a pair of new high-end Macs and their accompanying processors.
Gourmet stated earlier that on June 5 Apple will begin accepting replacements for the Mac Studio, the 13-inch MacBook Air (with the M2 chip) and the 13-inch MacBook Pro (M2), which may help support his latest prediction.

While the company is expected to introduce a 15-inch MacBook Air, it’s not yet clear which other models might join Apple’s lineup, although some rumors hint at a new Mac Pro. The Mac Pro and Mac Studio still run on M1 chips, leading to speculation that both could finally get an upgrade. The new models are expected to be powered by the M2 chip, which delivers twice the speed of its predecessor, longer battery life, better connectivity and 8K capabilities.
Earlier this month, Gurman noted in his Power On newsletter that the arrival of the M3 chip could be imminent in new Apple computers, with the upgraded technology possibly arriving in late 2023 or early 2024.
