What is Apple preparing for us?
Another unknown is the model of the company’s first laptop to use the new CPU architecture – Arm. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman was expecting a notebook, but others are launching a new line of products that includes the Pro, Air, or even an upgraded version of the 12-inch MacBook.
Ming-Chi Kuo, as Apple analyst, assumes that the 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models will be updated with the new Apple silicon chips before the end of 2020. However, the China Times claims that the MacBook is about to be upgraded. by 12 inches. A model that weighs less than a kilogram and has a range of 15 to 20 hours is used.
Regardless of the models that arrive, rumors suggest that the A14X chip will be on board the first Mac based on the “Apple Silicon CPU”. According to Bloomberg, Apple’s first Mac processors will incorporate 12 cores with 8 cores for performance and at least 4 energy efficient cores. It is rumored that Apple is also experimenting with CPUs with more than 12 cores. The company is already developing the second generation of Mac processors based on the A15 chip.
Finally, it should be noted that Prosser did not always make correct predictions. Sometimes he offered accurate predictions, sometimes he relied on dubious sources and later revised them. In any case, Bloomberg has predicted in the past that Apple will launch the new MacBooks in November. It remains to be seen whether Apple will officially announce in a press release, an event at this time.
