Apple unveils new MacBook Pro and Mac mini

Apple announced the launch of the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, and the new Mac mini with M2 and M2 Pro chips, combined with macOS Ventura, to bring an extraordinary experience.

Although it is only a routine upgrade, driven by a new generation of chips, the new MacBook Pro has further improved energy efficiency and enhanced connectivity. It supports Wi-Fi 6E, the HDMI port achieves 8K output, and it is also equipped with three Thunderbolt 4 ports, an SDXC card slot, and MagSafe 3 charging port. Plus, there’s a Liquid Retina XDR display, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, a six-speaker sound system, and studio-quality microphones.

The new M2 Pro brings professional-grade performance to the Mac mini for the first time, allowing users to run demanding workflows in a compact design. Among them, the M2 model supports the connection of up to two monitors at the same time, and the M2 Pro model supports the connection of up to three monitors at the same time. With Studio Display and Magic Control accessories, both efficiency and creativity can be upgraded.

The M2 Mac mini has two Thunderbolt 4 ports, and the M2 Pro Mac mini has four Thunderbolt 4 ports. The latter also supports connecting an 8K display, a first for a Mac mini. Both models feature two USB-A ports, an HDMI port, a Gigabit Ethernet port (with an optional 10Gb Ethernet port), and an upgraded headphone jack. In terms of wireless connection, both models support the latest standard Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.
