Apple MacBook models with M3 chip likely to launch in 2024

Prepend to the content

  • There have been reports that MacBooks with M3 chips will launch this year
  • However, a new update reveals that it will not arrive until the end of 2023
  • Appel’s M3 chip will be based on TSMC’s 3nm manufacturing process

MacBook models with the M3 series chip are not expected to launch this year, as per well-known Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo’s X (formerly Twitter) post. To recall, a Bloomberg report that emerged in July claimed that Apple would announce a couple of notebooks and desktop PCs all powered by the upcoming Apple M3 chip in October of this year.

For those who don’t know, Apple is expected to launch the M3 chip based on TSMC’s 3nm manufacturing process by late 2023. Here is a look at what Kuo said about the M3-powered MacBooks. The new update by Kuo suggests that at least the M3 notebooks will not launch this year.

MacBook models with M3 chip may launch in 2024

Apple Macbooks with M3 chips may not launch this year

Kuo’s post on X reads, “It seems that Apple will not launch new MacBook models (equipped with M3 series processors) before the end of this year.” The statement seems to partially contradict what Bloomberg reported last month. According to the publication’s report from July, Apple will announce M3-powered devices, such as 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac mini models, in October of this year.

Hence, there is a possibility that while Apple MacBook models with the M3 series chip will arrive next year, other devices powered by the said chipset may debut in October. Apple is also said to be working on other M3 series-chip-powered devices, including 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models and an iPad Pro with an OLED screen. These devices are also expected to launch in 2024.

Apple M3, M3 Pro specifications (rumoured)

Utilising TSMC’s advanced 3nm manufacturing process, the forthcoming Apple M3 Pro chip is expected to include 12 CPU cores and 18 GPU cores, accompanied by a potential 36GB of unified memory. In contrast, the Apple M3 is poised to offer improved single- and multi-core performance, featuring a total of 12 CPU cores, comprised of 6 performance cores and 6 efficiency cores.
