April 14 (Reuters) – Apple Inc has started internal testing of several Mac models with next-generation M2 chips, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday citing developer logs.

The company is testing at least nine Mac models with four different M2-based chips – the successors to the current M1 line – with third-party apps in its App store, according to the logs which were corroborated by people familiar with the matter, the report said.

Apple is also testing a Mac mini with an M1 Pro chip, the same processor used in the entry-level 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, the report added.
