Apple has already started work on the next-generation M3 processor

Apple just revealed its new Apple Silicon M2 chipset and released a few MacBooks that use it. The company plans to release several other devices later this year.

Now, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg’s Power On newsletter has disclosed that Apple has already started work on the next-generation M3 processor.

Along with the Apple Silicon M3 processor’s release date, he also says that the new chip will power four Mac products next year: a 13-inch MacBook Air (J513), a 15-inch MacBook Air (J515), and a new iMac (J433). There is also a 12-inch MacBook, although it is still in development and nothing is known about it.

Apple is likely to release a few additional M2-series processors this year before releasing the M3 chipset next year, which might include the M2 Pro, M2 Max, M2 Ultra, and M2 Extreme.

The company is set to release its first AR/MR technology reality headset powered by the Apple M2 Chipset, as well as new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models powered by the M2 Pro and M2 Max processors. Following that, the company may reveal a redesigned Mac Pro powered by the M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme Chipsets.

There is currently no information on the new Apple Silicon M3 Chipset, however, it is expected to be made by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).

The M1 and M2 chips are built using a 5nm process, however, if the M3 chip is manufactured using a 3nm process, it might provide substantial performance and increased efficiency.
