At its upcoming launch next week, Apple will unveil three new Macs with Apple’s Silicon processor, including the 13-inch MacBook Pro, the 16-inch MacBook Pro and the 13-inch MacBook Air. The latest information comes from Bloomberg, which is listed as a “person familiar with the matter.”
With the exception of the transition to the Apple Silicon chip, there will be no major changes to the design of the new Mac, and Apple will continue to use the same MacBook form factor. Apple is rumoured to be working on a redesigned version of the MacBook Pro, which is 14.1 and 16.1 inches in size and features a mini-LED display, but the machines will not ship until 2021.
Apple’s new Macs will feature 5nm chips based on the A14 in the iPhone 12, which provide energy efficiency and performance improvements over Intel’s processors. Apple plans to transition the entire Mac product line to Apple Silicon, but the process will take about two years.
While the notebook will be the first to be updated, Apple is working on a redesigned iMac with an Apple Silicon chip and a new, smaller Mac Pro.
Apple’s event kicks off tuesday, November 10 at 10 a.m. Pacific time. Apple will broadcast the event live.
