Last month during WWDC 2020, Cupertino-based Tech giant has announced that it will switch to ARM processors for the Mac-series of devices. Not just that they have also confirmed that they will launch an ARM-powered Mac by the end of this year.
Ever since the announcement, we have been seeing quite a lot of leaks and speculations around the Macbooks. Now according to the recent reports from DigiTimes, Apple might ship two MacBooks with Apple Silicon inside, before the end of 2020. The report from DigiTimes says that Apple will ship the ARM-powered 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.
Also, the total shipments of the MacBook lineup are expected to reach 16-17 million units this year. Also during the WWDC in June, Apple also announced that its Mac computers will also be switched from Intel to Apple’s own Silicon chipsets.
Also, the source’s latest prediction pegs the launch of Apple Silicon Macs a little earlier than analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Apple will reportedly also rely on TSMC for the ARM silicon destined for its Macs. According to another DigiTimes report
TSMC will fabricate Apple’s custom chips for the Mac using 5nm process technology, with production still in normal volume during the first half of 2021, the sources noted, but the output will expand substanrually later next year.
Seems like Apple is having a lot on its shoulders as the company is working on the affordable 10.8 inch iPad with “high-performance chip” and it is also set to unveil the iPhone 12 series too.
As for the iPhone 12, it appears that Apple’s A14 chipset that comes packed inside iPhone 12 will be the most powerful and efficient smartphone chip we have seen. The information is gathered during a TSMC earnings call. Apple’s A14 chipset is again going to be the most powerful mobile chipset something which Apple never fails to mention during its launch event.
