Upcoming Apple Silicon Mac Pro being tested on macOS 13.3

The only computer in the Mac lineup to be upgraded to Apple Silicon is Mac Pro. Expected to launch this year, rumor mills have fresh intel on the upcoming desktop computer’s design and features.

Mark Gurman from Bloomberg claims that the tech giant is testing the new Apple Silicon Mac Pro on an upcoming macOS 13.3 version. In December 2021, Apple released macOS Ventura 13.1 to everyone and has macOS Ventura 13.2 in the beta testing phase.

Apple Silicon Mac Pro might launch in spring 2023, along with macOS 13.3

In his latest follow-up tweet on Apple Silicon Mac Pro, Gurman said that Apple was testing the new Mac Pro on an unreleased macOS 13.3 version. He added that the company usually released X.3 macOS version in spring. Therefore, it is likely that Mac Pro with Apple Silicon might be unveiled in March or at WWDC 23 event, along with macOS 13.3. 

Earlier, Gurman shared that the first-generation Apple Silicon Mac Pro will launch with an M2 Ultra chip this year, retracting a previous claim that Mac Pro would come with an M2 Extreme chip. He explained that the M2 Extreme chip was scrapped because of development and cost issues.

He also said that the new desktop computer would same design as its 2019 predecessor but would not offer user-upgradeable RAM. However, the computer would ship with “two SSD storage slots for graphics, media, and networking cards.”

The new M2 Ultra chip is predicted to feature 24 CPU cores, 76 graphics cores, and support for 192 gigabytes of memory to deliver even better performance than the M1 Ultra chip.
