13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 gets the teardown treatment

Apple introduced a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 processor under the hood at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference.

It's been on sale for a bit of time now, so it's only appropriate that it gets the teardown treatment.

MacBook Air with M2 may launch on July 15

Apple made a hardware announcement at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, debuting the first look at the redesigned MacBook Air. Of course, the other hardware element was the debut of Apple's new M2 chip, which powers the new machine. Unfortunately for folks who want the new laptop, it's been a bit of a waiting game as Apple plans to launch the laptop sometime in July.

One of the biggest new elements to help boost productivity on iPad is what Apple calls Stage Manager. It's a brand new multitasking software tool that helps tablet users get more done. At least, that's the idea. But it's only available on iPad models equipped with Apple's M-series processor, the M1. And today, Apple's hoping to explain why that is.
