It’s officially Friday, June 24 in New Zealand and Australia, meaning it’s launch day for the 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro. Customers in New Zealand and Australia are always the first to get their hands on new devices due to time zone differences, and the “M2” Macs are no exception.

‌M2‌ MacBook Pro models are starting to arrive at customers who pre-ordered the machine last Friday, and new MacBook Pro owners will likely share their experiences with the updated ‌M2‌ chip on the iPhone soon. MacRumors forums, Twitter and other social networks.

New Zealand has no Apple Stores, so customers in Australia will be the first to pick up an ‌M2‌ MacBook Pro. Stock in Australia gives us an idea of ​​what to expect from other stores worldwide. A sample shows the stock of ‌M2‌ MacBook Pro models available for purchase at multiple stores in Australia, but custom configurations with upgraded unified memory and SSDs are unlikely to be available in stores.

After New Zealand and Australia, MacBook Pro sales will begin in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and then North America.

The 13-inch ‌M2‌ MacBook Pro has the same design as the previous generation model, with the ‌M2‌ chip being the only upgrade. The ‌M2‌ chip has the same 8-core CPU as the M1, but with an improved nine- or 10-core GPU.
