Kuo: No new Macs and iPads expected until the end of 2023

by Joe Rossignol

Apple is unlikely to release new Macs or iPads before the end of 2023, according to a series of forecasts made in recent weeks by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.


Last month, Kuo said Apple was unlikely to release new MacBooks with the M3 chip this year. All existing MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models are equipped with M2-series chips, so any new models will presumably be equipped with M3 chips, which effectively means that Kuo doesn't expect any new MacBooks to arrive at all until the end of 2023.

Previously on Kuo added this week that the next update to the 24-inch iMac will come in 2024, ruling out the possibility of an all-in-one desktop update this year. All other desktop Macs, including the Mac mini, Mac Studio, and Mac Pro, have already been updated in 2023 and are unlikely to be updated again until 2024 or later.

Last month, Kuo said Apple was unlikely to release any new iPad models until the end of 2023.

Apple has not yet released a single new iPad. Pro, iPad Air, iPad mini, or entry-level iPad models this year. If this trend continues through the end of 2023, as expected, it will be the first calendar year in which no new iPads have been released in the devices' 13-year history.
