He studies that Apple is “aiming to introduce the upgraded fashions—together with M2-based variations of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Execs—within the first quarter of calendar 2023.”
Apple has used its spring match to release new Macs lately—closing March noticed the advent of the Mac Studio, and the former April introduced the 24-inch iMac. Alternatively, if no new Macs arrive in November, it will be the first Mac-less fall since 2017:
2021: 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Professional (M1 Professional/Max)
2020: MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Professional, Mac mini (M1)

Gurman says the brand new Macs shall be launched along the release of macOS Ventura 13.3. Apple most effective simply launched the primary beta of macOS Ventura 13.1 closing week, which we assumed would debut at the new Macs. However whilst that liberate will most probably arrive in November with Apple’s new Freeform app, Gurman doesn’t suppose new Macs will accompany it.

Throughout its fourth-quarter convention name, Tim Cook dinner stated Apple was once “manner[ing] the vacation season with our product lineup set,” which might imply that it’s achieved freeing new merchandise. Alternatively, because the rumored merchandise are little greater than M2 updates to the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Professional and the Mac mini, Cook dinner is also relating to the true lineup.
At any fee, we’ll be retaining our eyes peeled over the following couple of Tuesdays simply in case.
