The new Mac Pro on the M2 Extreme platform may be presented before the end of this year.
Journalist and insider Mark Gurman supplemented his data regarding this PC. He says that Apple may announce the Mac Pro at the end of this year, but it will be available for sale early next year.
Moreover, the new Mac Pro was allegedly ready a few months ago, and Apple could have released it with a platform from the M1 line, but decided to postpone the launch until the SoC M2 Extreme is ready.
What will be the M2 Extreme is not yet clear, since it has no analogues in the M1 line. But earlier there were rumors of 40 CPU cores and 128 GPU cores, which is just twice as much as the M1 Ultra, so that’s exactly what the new Apple platform could be. Given the performance of the M1 Ultra, one can only imagine how impressive the capabilities of the new Mac Pro will be.
But what will be the new Mac Pro itself, while there are not even rumors. Considering the transition to Apple Silicon, the new product may lose a lot in the ability to update or change the configuration by the users themselves.

Fake Safari and Chrome updates for Mac contain malware that steals passwords and card data
New malware called Atomic macOS Stealer (AMOS), released in early 2023, targets Apple users. Using the latest version of malware, attackers inject AMOS into fake updates for Safari and Chrome browsers for Mac.
AMOS is a powerful piece of malware that, once installed on a victim’s computer, can steal iCloud Keychain passwords, credit card numbers, crypto wallets, files, and more.
After discovering the first AMOS threats in March and April, security researchers at Malwarebytes discovered in September that Mac users were installing AMOS through fake Google search ads.
Now, Malwarebytes reports that fake Safari and Chrome browser updates are now being used to install AMOS on victims’ Macs. The new AMOS approach is called ClearFake. Attackers use hacked websites to deliver fake Safari and Chrome updates.
Users are advised not to download software from untrusted or unknown sources – update Safari directly from your Mac in System Preferences or Chrome directly from Google or the Chrome app.
Microsoft introduced the Windows App for Mac, iPhone, Windows PC and other devices
At Ignite 2023, Microsoft announced a new Windows App for Windows devices, macOS, iOS and other platforms.
As the developers note, with its help, users can remotely connect to Windows 365, Azure Virtual Desktop, Microsoft Dev Box or a personal remote desktop computer, wherever they are. A preview version of the Windows App is available for download from the Microsoft Store as well as Apple’s TestFlight program.
Microsoft says the Windows App is essentially a one-stop place to manage all your connected devices and apps.
At the top of the interface is a list of pinned devices, which in this case is a cloud PC with Windows 365, a Microsoft Dev Box, and an Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD). And then there is a list of pinned applications.
It is possible to navigate through the menus of other devices and applications, as well as the ability to expand lists. There is also a Settings option. Everything looks pretty simple and easy to navigate.
