Report of Mac Book Models Based on Apple Silicon

Hey, guys congenial to our unique blog this blog is not taking off to be too lanky 

In today's blog, we are getting on to illustrate you with a small report about upcoming MacBook models based on Apple silicon and we will also tell you about the event going to be held on November 10th.

Apple has reportedly placed its foremost production order of 25 lakh MacBook laptops powered by the rumored in-house CPU. The suppliers are asked to fulfill the prerequisites by early 2021. Just like the iPhone, Apple is looking to inaugurated in-house silicon central processing units on its MacBook range of laptops. A report conveys that new MacBook models powered by the in-house CPU may be launched in the second quarter next year. Apple is also hosting an event on November 10 where new MacBook models are foreseen.

In its report, Nikkei Asia stated that Apple won’t bring up new MacBooks powered by the foretold Apple silicon before the second quarter of 2021. Apple has asked suppliers to produce 25 lakh MacBook laptops with the new CPU by early 2021. This disavows a previous report that alleged that the new Apple silicon-based MacBook laptops were launching at the November 10 event. Apple may just demonstrate the arrival of these new devices at the event, but availability is now reported for next year.

The report suggests that the initial production orders for the first MacBook laptops are equivalent to nearly 20 percent of total MacBook shipments for 2019 that came in at 1.26 crore units. Apple plans to replace Intel microprocessors with its CPU that is said to be based on the company’s A14 Bionic SoC that is already powering the iPhone 12 series as well as the latest iPad Air models. The report says that Apple looks to completely cut off reliance on Intel in the next two years.

Apple’s upcoming CPUs for the MacBook are reportedly designed in-house but produced by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC). They are made by TSMC’s 5-nanometer chip manufacturing technology.


When is the Apple Silicon November event?

The Apple Silicon Mac event will take place on November 10 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. It will be completely virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic, much like the Apple Watch event in September and the iPhone 12 event last month. We expect a pre-recorded video from Apple Park, featuring Tim Cook and a handful of other Apple directors.

You’ll be able to live stream the event through Apple’s website, on YouTube, and through the Apple TV application.

Apple Silicon

Again, the preoccupation of the November 10 event will almost certainly be on Apple’s plans to transition the Mac lineup to Apple Silicon processors. Apple first announced its plans for this transition back at WWDC in June, and the company even teased that the first Apple Silicon Mac would launch to customers in 2020.

Currently, Apple uses Intel processors in the Mac lineup, but this is not the first time Apple has transitioned the Mac to new processor architecture. Apple first publicly announced its plans to transition away from PowerPC processors in the Mac to Intel processors back in 2005 at WWDC.

With Apple Silicon, Apple will have more control over their timeline and production of the processors used in the Mac. It’s no secret that the relationship between Apple and Intel has soured over the last several years as the chipmaker overlooked multiple production delays, thereby also affecting the Mac lineup.

And of course, Apple has shown its prowess in creating its processors over the years with the iPhone and iPad. Now, it will bring those same processors to the Mac.

Apple’s first round of ARM Macs are believed to be based on the same A14 architecture as seen in the iPad Air and iPhone 12. However, the processors will be optimized for the larger thermal windows and power characteristics of laptops. In fact, back in April, Bloomberg said that the first ARM Mac chip would feature a 12-core design

Here’s what we expect to see first.

13-inch MacBook Pro

Most recently, Bloomberg reported that one of the first Apple Silicon Macs will be a new version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro. This was also reported by the reliable yet cryptic leaker on Twitter L0vetodream and corroborated by Ming-Chi Kuo.

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Apple Silicon is expected to look largely similar to the current 13-inch MacBook Pro. That is, we should not expect any dramatic redesigns with this year’s MacBook Pro update. Reports currently indicate that we could get a new, redesigned 14-inch MacBook Pro in 2021.

More details about what to expect from this new MacBook Pro are unclear right now, but we’ll learn more from Apple on Tuesday.

New MacBook Air

Bloomberg, Kuo, and L0vetodream have also reported that one of the first Apple Silicon Macs will be a new 13-inch MacBook Air. This would again be a new MacBook Air with a design similar to the current MacBook Air, but with Apple Silicon inside.

Apple Silicon could be especially drastic in the small and slim form factor of the MacBook Air, offering improved battery life, performance, and thermal capabilities.

Other Mac hardware announcements

Other than those two Mac announcements, Apple is also reportedly developing a new 16-inch MacBook Pro. It’s unclear, however, whether this machine will be announced during Tuesday’s event. It could be coming in early 2021 instead since it is more powerful and includes a dedicated GPU.

Other reports have suggested that Apple could introduce a new 12-inch MacBook as one of its first Apple Silicon Macs. The more power-efficient Apple Silicon chips would reportedly be able to provide 15-20 hours of battery life to a machine like this.

Apple is also reportedly developing a new iMac, new Mac mini, and new Mac Pro. None of these desktop updates are expected to be announced during Tuesday’s event, and you should keep in mind that Apple has said it will take around 2 years to transition the entire Mac lineup to Apple Silicon.

macOS 11 Big Sur

During Tuesday’s event, Apple is likely to announce the release date for macOS 11 Big Sur. Apple first introduced Big Sur during WWDC 2020 and it’s the sole software update announced at WWDC that has not yet been released to the public.

macOS 11 Big Sur is a massive update for the Mac, including a completely redesigned interface, an all-new Messages application, an all-new Control Center and Notification Center, and much more. 

• Safari in macOS Big Sur beta 4 now supports 4K YouTube video stream

• Hands-on: 85+ new macOS Big Sur changes and features. 

For Apple Silicon Macs, the introduction of macOS 11 Big Sur will also include the ability to run iPad and iPhone apps on the Mac. We expect Apple to spend a considerable amount of time talking about this during Tuesday’s event, including demonstrations of popular iPhone and iPad apps running on the first Apple Silicon Macs.

Apple November event wrap-up

As you can see, Apple’s plans are seemingly to start the Apple Silicon transition slowly, and without major drastic changes to the rest of the Mac lineup. The transition will likely start with the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. Reports indicate that more dramatic changes could be one the way sometime in 2021 and beyond, including updates to models like the Mac mini, iMac, and Mac Pro.
