Your MacBook is heritage.
That was more or considerably less the message from Johny Srouji, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Systems, when speaking at the WWDC in June about Apple’s transition away from the Intel-primarily based MacBook — the Mac architecture the world has been using due to the fact 2006.
Srouji referred to as the Mac transition to Apple silicon a “huge leap forward.”
Apple’s target, in accordance to Srouji, is to supply “a significantly bigger degree of overall performance although at the exact time consuming much less energy.”
Apple’s GPU (graphics processor) may possibly be the most game-shifting piece of silicon. It will “bring a whole new degree of graphics efficiency, producing the Macs even superior for core apps and definitely great for gaming,” Srouji stated.
Here’s what to be expecting — primarily based on forecasts* as of summertime 2020:
13-inch MacBook Pro 2020-2021: late 2020 or early 2021. This may possibly have a related physical style to the current 13-inch MacBook Pro but with new internals, i.e., Apple’s new silicon. This would reportedly be the initial MacBook to get Apple’s new A Collection processors developed exclusively for the Mac. The MBP 13 will go into mass output in the fourth quarter of this 12 months, in accordance to experiences.
MacBook Air 2o2o or 2021: late 2020 or early 2021. The MBA may possibly stand to benefit the most from the new Apple silicon simply because it’s the thinnest and lightest MacBook and has not been a excellent in shape for Intel processors (dependent on my expertise of owning lots of MacBook Air designs as properly as 12-inch MacBooks more than the decades).
14-inch MacBook Professional: by 3rd quarter 2021. This would boast a a mini-LED screen and an “all-new form factor” and be Apple’s first 14-inch MBP.
16-inch MacBook Professional: by third quarter 2021. Also, with mini-LED display screen and also, reportedly, with an all-new style and design. That mentioned, other rumors have claimed an updated 16-inch MacBook Pro would get there in October or November of this calendar year. Both of those could occur.
