The first Apple computer that will be powered by the new silicon is a MacBook. A version should be ready for release by November, as the company since to be quite keen on promoting its own take on computer-grade processors.
A well-known leaker, who offered accurate information in the past, notes that several Apple products will be released in November, with the new MacBook being one of them. It is likely that a launch event could take place after the release of the iPhone 12 range.
While the internet rumor factory is focused on a new MacBook model, it is hard to determine if this will be the case, especially since Apple goes to great lengths to keep any information related to new products a secret, so it can boost the hype during the official announcement.
Some voices argue that the device will be a revamped version of the iconic MacBook Air, which has started to age in recent years. Others believe that Apple could target tech-savvy users with the release of a new MacBook Pro. The tried and true 12-inch MacBook could also return.
Apple has promised that an ARM-powered Mac device will be released by the end of 2020, but issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic could lead to unexpected delays related to development or manufacturing, forcing the company to delay a potential release against its wishes.
One of the most popular tech analysts in the world has also stated that a 13-inch MacBook Pro with an ARM CPU could be released at some point during Q4 2020. With the switch to in-house silicon, Apple could save a lot of money in the long run, and the final price of future products could be lower, attracting a large number of a new customer.
As usual, any rumor should be taken with a grain of salt.
