Your MacBook is historical past.
That was far more or fewer the concept from Johny Srouji, Apple’s senior vice president of Components Technologies, when speaking at the WWDC in June about Apple’s transition away from the Intel-centered MacBook — the Mac architecture the earth has been using considering that 2006.
Srouji termed the Mac transition to Apple silicon a “huge leap ahead.”
Apple’s aim, according to Srouji, is to provide “a significantly increased level of functionality though at the similar time consuming fewer electrical power.”
Apple’s GPU (graphics processor) could be the most match-shifting piece of silicon. It will “bring a total new amount of graphics overall performance, producing the Macs even far better for main applications and actually wonderful for gaming,” Srouji reported.
Here’s what to be expecting — dependent on forecasts* as of summer season 2020:
13-inch MacBook Pro 2020-2021: late 2020 or early 2021. This might have a equivalent actual physical design to the present 13-inch MacBook Professional but with new internals, i.e., Apple’s new silicon. This would reportedly be the initially MacBook to get Apple’s new A Sequence processors created exclusively for the Mac. The MBP 13 will go into mass creation in the fourth quarter of this 12 months, according to studies.
MacBook Air 2o2o or 2021: late 2020 or early 2021. The MBA may perhaps stand to profit the most from the new Apple silicon since it is the thinnest and lightest MacBook and has not been a great match for Intel processors (based on my encounter of proudly owning numerous MacBook Air versions as properly as 12-inch MacBooks more than the a long time).
14-inch MacBook Professional: by 3rd quarter 2021. This would boast a a mini-LED exhibit and an “all-new form factor” and be Apple’s 1st 14-inch MBP.
16-inch MacBook Pro: by 3rd quarter 2021. Also, with mini-LED display screen and also, reportedly, with an all-new structure. That reported, other rumors have claimed an up to date 16-inch MacBook Pro would arrive in Oct or November of this yr. Both of those could come about.
