Surprise! Apple can launch new MacBook Pro, Mac mini TODAY: Reports
According to tipster Jon Prosser, Apple could launch new products including a MacBook Pro and Mac Mini today, January 17. Check out the details.
Apple could well be holding a secret launch later today, January 17! Nothing has been announced officially, but new MacBook devices could be launched and made available to consumers globally. While Apple usually holds two to three different events every year (including the Worldwide Developers Conference or WWDC), and is known for releasing most of its products during these events, this time there will not be any specific "event" for the launch. In fact, the product launches could be done via just a press release. It is rumored that Apple could be unveiling a new MacBook Pro and Mac mini in this launch.
The information comes from reliable Apple tipster Jon Prosser from FrontPageTech who revealed this a cryptic tweet yesterday: “Keep an eye on Apple's newsroom tomorrow”. For the unaware, Apple Newsroom is the space where the company makes all of its announcements including product releases.
The same information was corroborated by MacRumors which stated in a report, “The announcement could be one of several products expected in the near future, including updated MacBook Pros and Mac mini models”.

Apple could launch new products today
Most rumors are pointing towards the launch of 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the updated M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets. These two new Apple chipsets were introduced last year in June in the WWDC 2022 event. Apple equipped this chipset in the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air, which were unveiled in the same event.
It is being said that the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will not see any other major improvements and this will just bring it up to date with the rest of the Apple MacBook lineup.
Similarly, it is rumored that Apple can launch Mac mini and equip it with the M2 chipset, increasing its performance and capabilities. It is not known if any other products can also be launched today.
It was earlier reported that both of these models were slated for a 2022 launch, however due to the chip shortage, Apple had to delay them.
However, it should be noted that the "launch" is only a rumored one. Other reports are suggesting that if not today, the Apple launch can also take place tomorrow, January 18 or later this week.
