While the 13-inch MacBook Pro has an outdated design from 2016, Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman today reported that the laptop will remain part of Apple’s lineup, with an updated model said to be in the works alongside other new Macs.

The report does not offer any additional details about the next 13-inch MacBook Pro, so it remains to be seen if the laptop will receive any external design changes, or if it will remain the last new Mac that Apple sells with the Touch Bar. Apple last updated the machine at WWDC last June with the M2 chip and support for high-impedance headphones.

A previous report indicated that the next 13-inch MacBook Pro will be powered by Apple’s M3 chip, which the company has yet to announce. It’s unclear when the laptop would launch, but a release later this year is likely at this point.

Gurman said Apple is also working on a larger 15-inch MacBook Air with a processor equivalent to the M2 chip, an updated 13-inch MacBook Air, a new 24-inch iMac, and a Mac Pro tower powered by Apple silicon. Last, he expects updated 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M3 Pro and M3 Max chips to be released in the first half of 2024.
