As we know, Apple will kick off its WWDC 2020 event today in which it will announce its upcoming devices and much more. However, according to a statement by the noted analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will officially announce its first ARM-based mac processors today at the WWDC 2020 event. According to his latest research note, the first device to feature this new ARM chip will be a 13.3-inch MacBook Pro. The report further states that it will get launched in Q4 2020 or Q1 2021. Also, Apple will abandon the Intel-based MacBook Pro when the ARM model gets launched.
Also, the first ARM-based iMac will get launched around the same time as the ARM-powered MacBook Pro. Kuo said that it would come with a 24-inch display with slim bezels. He also claimed that the Intel-based variant of the iMac would get launched following this year, and it will probably be the last iMac to feature an Intel-based chip. It will take Apple around 12 to 18 months to switch from an Intel-based chipset to an ARM-only lineup.
Although Bloomberg already reported Apple’s plans about its ARM-based MacBooks back in January 2018. The report also indicates that Apple might be working on three new Mac models, including one iMac and two MacBooks with ARM-powered custom co-processors. For more information, wait for Apple’s WWDC 2020 event that will kick off at 10:30 PM IST. Till then, stay tuned for more updates.
