A post on the Chinese social media platform Weibo includes an image of what the poster says is the box for a new unreleased MacBook Pro.
The picture, re-shared on X by ShrimpApplePro, shows what appears to be Apple packaging featuring a MacBook Pro image with previously unseen wallpaper on the display. At this point, we can’t confirm whether the image is legitimate or a fake.
I guess this is the new MacBook Pro

Apple’s upcoming October 30 “Scary Fast” event will focus on M3-powered MacBook Pro models, according to Apple industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The wording of Kuo’s X post indicates that he is expecting multiple M3 chips rather than just a single M3 chip, hinting at the possibility of M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max chips.
Kuo’s comments jibe with recent comments by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who has said that Apple is testing M3 Max and M3 Pro MacBook models. Gurman appears to have changed his mind on the subject, as just last week he said Apple would not update the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M3 Pro and M3 Max chips until early 2024.
