MacBook Pro and iPad Pro, which are moving into mass production this year, have hinted that they will not use 3nm chip technology. Both Apple gadgets have been tipped to carry the new 5nm chips, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He had first hinted at this a few days earlier. The analyst also added that the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with new processors will go into mass production in 4Q22.
Kuo has reiterated his earlier tip that the forthcoming MacBook Pro and iPad will go into mass production in the fourth quarter of 2022 (4Q22). He had also suggested that it is possible that Apple’s 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models come with “5nm advanced node”. This means that these new laptops will have the same M2 chip under the hood that powers the MacBook Pro (2022) and MacBook Air (2022).
There was reportedly disagreement among analysts over the chip technology Apple would use to power the upcoming iPad Pro and MacBook Pro. This is where Kuo has reiterated his claim that the models may come with 5nm chips. Explaining the reason for this in Twitter, he said: “EMS must purchase components by October at the latest for products that will go into mass production in 4Q22, but 3nm chips will not be available until January 2023. So I think new MacBook Pro and iPad Pro, which will go into mass production in 4Q22, will use new but unlikely 3nm processors.”

A month ago, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg… [claimed](https://gadgets360.com/laptops/news/macbook-pro-m2-max-chipset-launch-expected-fall-2022-spring-2023-mar-gurman-bloomberg-apple-3168131) that allows MacBook Pro laptops M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets, as well as 14-inch and 16-inch displays will launch sometime between Fall 2022 and Spring 2023. Gurman had also noted that “it’s hard to predict exactly when these will hit store shelves.”
The first information about the launch of these laptops was given earlier this year when Gurman claimed that Apple is working on a total of 9 desktops and laptops with different variations of M2 processor, including M2 Pro and M2 Max.
