Apple had previously said the new 13-inch MacBook Pro would be available in July, so orders are running ahead of schedule. Customers will be able to place an order via Apple.com, the Apple Store app, or through select Apple Authorized Resellers.

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro features the same design as the previous model, including the Touch Bar, with the only notable change being the addition of the M2 chip. Pricing starts at $1,299 in the United States, with silver and space gray color options.

Apple said the M2 chip has an 18% faster CPU, a 35% faster GPU, and a 40% faster Neural Engine compared to the M1 chip. With the M2 chip, the 13-inch MacBook Pro can be configured with up to 24GB of unified memory, whereas the M1 chip maxes out at 16GB of memory. The notebook can also be equipped with up to 2TB of SSD storage.

Apple did not provide an order date for the new MacBook Air with the M2 chip, which remains listed as "available next month" on Apple's website.

While the new 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models are both equipped with the M2 chip, one notable difference between the notebooks is that the MacBook Pro features an active cooling system to ensure sustained performance for those with "more demanding workflows," according to Apple, whereas the MacBook Air has a fanless design.

Question: are M1 iPads powerful enough to create icons on the desktop, or will that feature be restricted to M2 iPads only? ?

Missing out on the Air's vastly improved webcam, larger screen, new design, lowered weight, full-height function key row and MagSafe... But it has a fan.
