New MacBook Pro 2022 Pre Order Date Prediction, M2 Max & M2 Pro *UPDATED*
MacBook Pro M2 Pro pre order & MacBook Pro M2 Max pre order date estimates
*LATEST!* It seems that the new MacBook Pro 2022 pre order date may be getting pushed back. Despite his original predictions, it seems Apple commenter Mark Gurman has interpreted the latest announcements from Apple as meaning that we’re unlikely to see the new MacBook Pro 2022 release date before Q1 2023.
This has obviously pushed the likely MacBook Pro 2022 pre order date (including for the MacBook Pro M2 Pro pre order and MacBook Pro M2 Max pre order) back to a similar part of the year, although it should be noted that Apple hasn’t even officially confirmed that they’re launching the product yet.

Historical MacBook Pro pre order dates
As we go over in more detail on our MacBook Pro release date page, every MacBook launch date over the past four years (i.e. when the product is officially revealed) has taken place either in the May-July period or the October-November period of the year, with the pre order taking place a few days after the launch date.
It seems however that Apple are now changing up the schedule, with the new MacBooks unlikely to release this year, which leaves their likely pre order date somewhat up in the air.
New MacBook Pro 2022 launch date prediction
Based on historical trends, plus Mark Gurman’s assertion that ‘the company has historically launched new products in November’, we had previously predicted that the launch date would fall at some point in the month of November, however as discussed above, this now seems to be incorrect, and some time in Q1 2023 seems very likely.
The company tends to launch/unveil new products on a Tuesday or a Wednesday in the week, so this is likely for the new MacBooks.
MacBook Pro M2 Pro pre order date estimate
Pre orders for Apple products often go live on the same Friday of the week they are launched/unveiled to the public (with the release date being the following Friday). Sometimes however they are available to pre order immediately after they are launched (usually on a Tuesday or Wednesday)
The MacBook Pro M2 Pro pre order date window could now be on any time in Q1 2023 (we can no longer narrow it down more than this).
MacBook Pro M2 Max pre order date window estimate
The MacBook Pro M2 Max pre order date will be the same as that of the M2 Pro version, so we also predict anytime in Q1 2023 for the MacBook Pro M2 Max pre order.
New MacBook Pro 16 inch & 14 inch pre order vs MacBook Pro 13 inch pre order
The 2022 version of the MacBook Pro 13″ came out back on the 6th June so the pre-orders for this are now closed. This MacBook was powered by the new M2 chip, but we won’t be seeing a new M2 Pro or M2 Max version release alongside the larger models. We’re fairly confident that the only new MacBooks we’ll see this year will be the M2 Pro and M2 Max versions.
MacBook Pro 2022 Pre Order FAQs
Is there a new MacBook Pro coming out in 2022?
Although it’s not been definitively confirmed by Apple yet, it’s likely we’ll see new MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch versions launched at some point in Q1 2023.
Earlier this year we’ve already seen the launch of a new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13-inch device.
Can you preorder the new MacBook Pro?
You cannot yet pre order the new MacBook Pro 2022 versions that we believe will be appearing at some point in Q1 2023. It is likely that MacBook Pro M2 Max pre orders and MacBook Pro M2 Pro pre orders will go live in the week or so following their reveal, but this has yet to be confirmed.
Is there a new MacBook 13 coming out?
We’ve already seen the release of a new MacBook 13 in June 2022, powered by the M2 chip.
