Should you upgrade MacBook Pro M4? Some Considerations

This guide compiles all of the information Apple has available regarding their MacBook Pro M4 plans

The 16-core Neural Engine found in all M3 chips has not been expanded by Apple in a number of years

A regular M4 chip will be added to the $1,599 14-inch MacBook Pro with an M3 chip

The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M4 Pro and M4 Max chips, more powerful versions of the speedier M4 chip, will be upgraded for “pro” users

The M3 Pro gets up to a 12-core CPU and 18-core GPU, while the M3 Max gets 16-core and 40-core

Apple has updated the MacBook in 2012, 2016, and 2021, so expect another update in 2025 or 2026

The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro revamp is expected in late 2024 to early 2025, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman
