New Model Identifiers

Honored Contributor

I just discovered that Apple is introducing a new Model Identifier scheme for the new Macs. The 13" M2 MacBook Pro is "Mac14,7" and the Mac Studio is "Mac13,1" Has anyone found any explanation for the new format? Will we be able to use Model Identifiers in a meaningful way (like MacBookPro11,5 is older than MacBookPro16,1) or will the numbers be just a random assignment to new models?

Although Mac13,x and Mac14,y are harder to parse without any external reference, this new ordering indicates the sequence that the models were introduced, so it actually is more logical. Ie, the Mac studio (Mac13) was introduced before the M2 Air (Mac14).

My brand new MacBook Pro 14"'s are showing as Mac14'9 in Jamf and not being seen as notebook/mobile. so my Wifi Config is not being pushed to them. I have a iMac Wi-Fi exception that I have to put them in, in order for the WiFi config to be pushed to them. This is so annoying.
