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, 2022 meaning that the pre-orders for this model are now closed. This 13-inch 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 at this time. It is possible though that we may see a 13-inch M2 Pro and/or M2 Max-powered laptop later in 2023.

Most commonly, pre orders for Apple products go live the Friday of the week they are launched/unveiled to the public, with the release date usually being the following Friday after that. Occasionally however they are available to pre order immediately after they are launched (usually on a Tuesday or Wednesday), and this is the pattern that Apple have gone with this year.
