First Apple Silicon Macs: 13″ and 16″ MacBook Pro, 13″ MacBook Air Says Gurman
Apple today announced a special event is coming on November 10, most likely to announce the company’s first highly anticipated Apple Silicon-powered Macs.
Apple Silicon will replace the iPhone maker’s relationship with Intel, as the latter’s CPUs power today’s Mac computers.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and Debbie Wu, the first Apple Silicon Macs will include both 13 and 16-inch MacBook Pro and the 13-inch MacBook Air. According to Gurman, aside from the new processor, “the devices won’t have significant design changes.”
Apple’s first Silicon processors will be based on the A14 chip found in the latest iPhone 12 line up and new iPad Air. The new Apple Silicon Macs will also have graphic processing units and machine learning chips made by Apple.
The new Apple Silicon Macs will run macOS Big Sur, the latest version of the desk operating system that will run iPad and iPhone apps.
Gurman says Apple is also working on a new Mac Pro that is “half the size” of the current design.
