The new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip is now available to order worldwide via Apple.com and the Apple Store app. The first deliveries to customers and in-store availability will begin Friday, June 24, according to Apple.
Apple is currently accepting orders for standard 13-inch MacBook Pro configurations, with most upgraded built-to-order configurations listed as unavailable right now, with the exception of a 24GB memory/1TB storage configuration using this link.
The new 13-inch MacBook Pro features the same design as the previous model, including the Touch Bar and two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The only notable change is the M2 chip with an 8-core CPU and a 10-core GPU. Apple said the M2 chip has up to an 18% faster CPU, 35% faster GPU, and 40% faster Neural Engine compared to the M1 chip.
With the M2 chip, the 13-inch MacBook Pro supports up to 24GB of unified memory, whereas the M1 chip maxes out at 16GB of memory. The notebook also supports up to a 2TB SSD. Pricing starts at $1,299 in the United States, with silver and space gray color options available.
Apple is also releasing a redesigned MacBook Air with the M2 chip, but it is not available to order until next month. One notable difference between the notebooks is that the MacBook Air features a fanless design, while the MacBook Pro has an active cooling system to ensure sustained performance for users with more demanding workflows.
