Is Apple introducing new MacBook Pro models today?

It is already known that Apple does not give a video and sound presentation for every new piece of hardware. And so it is currently rumored that the iPhone manufacturer will present new models of the MacBook Pro in a press release today or at least in the course of this week. At the same time, the new laptops would then also be offered in the official Apple Store. The rumor stems from the fact that on January 11, 2023, a new Apple device with the previously unused model number A2779 surfaced in a Canadian database of wireless devices. There is also a reference to the use of Wi-Fi 6E as the WLAN standard.

The new Apple laptop with the model number A2779 should also be able to transmit over 6 GHz with WLAN 6E. But what other specs are there? A 14-inch or 16-inch display and maybe the M2 Pro or M2 Max as a chip? We may find out today.

Is Apple Announcing the "M2 Pro" and "M2 Max" Chips Today?

The update to Wi-Fi 6E with a 6GHz radio band isn't too big of a deal given the other hardware in Apple's pro laptops. So why launch a whole new device with its own model number for it? This question is also in the Tweet by Wade Penner raised, who published the Canadian database entry as a screenshot. Apple could get one Keynote save, since the concept of the Pro and Max versions of the M chip is already known from the M1. So the new laptops could come with the M2 Pro and the M2 Max; the performance comparison to previous models could take place in the press release.

What time will Apple issue the press release?

There is a nine-hour time difference between California and Central Europe. Let's assume that Apple issues the message about the new MacBook Pro models at 8:00 a.m., that would be 17:00 p.m. in Germany. The traditional keynote time is 10:00 a.m., so 19:00 p.m. here. It is now clear that the information will not be given out at midnight, because it is now past midnight in Apple Park. So it remains exciting. We may not get any information today and the new device, model number A2779, will not be released until later this week or towards the end of the month. In addition to a new 14-inch or 16-inch model, a 13-inch model would not be entirely out of the question.
