The Cupertino giant reported the much-speculated move to its own ARM-based Apple Silicon for its Mac lineup from Intel during Apple’s first online WWDC back in June. Apple also indicated that Macs powered by ARM are under production, and by the end of this year we could see one.
Now, influential tipster Jon Prosser believes that the first Mac powered by Apple Silicon could be revealed by Apple as soon as next month. He says that on November 17, the Cupertino giant is scheduled to hold an event for ARM Macs and the event could be revealed on November 10, a week before that.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman revealed last week that Apple is planning for a November event where the first Mac powered by Apple Silicon will be revealed. He also confirmed that a notebook would be the upcoming ARM-based Mac, but he didn’t specify which one.
We are not sure which MacBook it is going to be, but the forthcoming MacBook does have some rumoured specifications. A China Times report notes that the Macbook would have a custom GPU, USB-C connectivity, about 15-20 hours of battery life, and it will weigh less than 1 KG, which would actually seem unlikely for a ‘Pro’ Macbook.
The predictions of analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (who has a good Apple track record) further reported that Apple will launch the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with this latest custom ARM chip in the second or third quarter of 2021 along with an all-new form factor device.
The much delayed AirPods Studio has been delayed further to next year, Prosser also says. The AirPods Studio will launch the next event after the November event, which is currently scheduled for March 16, 2021, according to its tweet.
November 17th is just a month away, so just prepare yourself for another epic November tour of Apple Park.
