Additionally, it is anticipated that the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will support Wi-Fi 6E, which expands Wi-Fi to the 6GHz band for greater bandwidth, faster speed, and lower latency. Standard Wi-Fi 6 is supported by the current 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, but only in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.

These new MacBook Pro models will likely be a significant improvement over the current models, as the M2 chip has already proven to be a substantial upgrade over the previous generation. Currently found in the 13-inch MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, and most recent MacBook Air, the chip has significantly improved performance in benchmark tests.
The new MacBook Pro models are also expected to have only minor spec-bump updates, with no significant design changes. This is likely why Apple is expected to make the announcement via a press release rather than a major event.
