According to a number of recent rumors, Apple is planning to introduce brand new Mac hardware later this week. A recent leak suggests that the future product may be an updated version of the MacBook Pro, despite the fact that the business has not yet made an official statement about the matter.
The soon-to-be-released MacBook Pro has been discovered in the database of the Canada Radio Equipment List with the model number A2779. The regulatory listing was first discovered by Wade Penner, who posts on Twitter and shows that it specifies a product marketing name of “MacBook Pro” along with an equipment description of laptop computer. The model number of the item does not correspond to any of the already available MacBook Pro models, providing more evidence that the product may be a new offering.

Despite the fact that the regulatory filing does not provide all of the hardware information, it does mention that the next iteration of the MacBook Pro will feature Wi-Fi 6E. According to 9to5Mac, Apple only provides support for Wi-Fi 6E on the most recent variants of the iPad Pro, and the up-and-coming MacBook Pro will be the first notebook from the firm to support the Wi-Fi standard.
It is possible that Apple could make the formal announcement of the new MacBook Pro model today. In the past, individuals acquainted with Apple’s intentions have claimed that the firm would introduce new Mac hardware this week. If that turns out to be the case, we anticipate seeing new 14-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models equipped with the company’s most recent M2 Pro and M2 Max CPUs.
It is logical to anticipate that Apple will not have a big launch event for the new MacBook Pro models since they will only provide a slight upgrade in terms of specifications. Instead, Apple may choose to reveal the new devices through a press release.
