Apple is redesigning a smaller Mac Pro model as part of its transition to self-developed ARM chips, Bloomberg reported. While using existing elements, they are compact or only half the size of the old ones. It remains to be seen whether it will completely replace the old model or develop in parallel for some time to come.
To some extent, the current generation of Mac Pros is quite large to accommodate more parts such as memory and GPUs. But with Apple’s Silicon, Apple is expected to significantly increase the energy efficiency of its Mac Pro, which in turn will help streamline the form factor of its devices.
As for when the new Mac Pro will be available, it is expected to be released between 2021 and 2022, after all, the company has said it will gradually move from Intel chips to its own Apple Silicon in two years.
In addition, during next week’s event, we’re expected to welcome new 13/16-inch MacBook Pro and 13-inch MacBook Air, all featuring Apple’s own ARM chips.
