Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed the first Apple MacBook models which will carry their own ARM processors.
In late June, the company officially announced that instead of Intel chips, it will use its own processors based on the ARM architecture.
- Apple releases macOS Catalina 10.15.5 fifth beta and Xcode 11.5
- The best gaming laptops (May 2020)
- iPhone 12 with A14 processor can be faster than the 15-inch MacBook Pro
According to Kuo, the first Mac line with proprietary processors will include the new MacBook Air and three variants of the MacBook Pro 13.3-, 14- and 16-inch.
These will be the first MacBook models with Apple ARM processors
Kuo expects the new 13.3-inch ARM-based MacBook Pro will go into mass production in the fourth quarter of 2020. A MacBook Air might join it. And the laptop shipments may begin at the end of this year or in the first quarter of next.
In the second or third quarter of 2021 we will also see 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Kuo previously said that MacBook models with such screens will be equipped with new Mini-LED displays that offer better contrast. Also, the 14-inch model is expected to have thinner frames, which will allow it to be comparable in size to a 13-inch laptop.
