The Apple Silicon family is now made up of a total of three chipsets — M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max — and according to the latest report, the company’s plan is to introduce a new iteration of custom chipsets every 18 months. This is what Macrumors reports, citing the Taiwanese industry newspaper Commercial Times. The latter found out about the plans from supplier circles.
According to this, the successor to the M1 chip, the M2 with the code name Staten, should be almost completely developed and come onto the market in the second half of 2022. The M2 Pro and M2 Max chips will then be added in the first half of 2023.
After a further 18 months, the M3 processors will follow, which will be manufactured in TSMC’s 3-nm process. Apple plans to convert all of its computers to its own chips by 2022.
