At the time, the company only confirmed that the first Mac with Apple Silicon would launch sometime before the end of 2020. And that’s all the details in that regard the company would give us. We don’t know if it’s going to be an iMac or a MacBook, and we don’t know when, exactly, we’ll get the official unveiling. But Bloomberg has an idea of a launch window, at least.
According to the publication, Apple is going to officially unveil the first apple Silicon Mac at another event sometime in the month of November. No exact date to circle on the calendar, unfortunately. And, if this pans out, it means that we shouldn’t expect to see an Apple Silicon-equipped Mac at the upcoming “Hi, Speed” event on October 13.
Per the brief mention in an overall larger report regarding 5G-equipped iPhones:
The first Mac laptop with Apple’s own processor, among other products, will emerge at another launch in November
The rumor mill has been a conflicting source for the device that will feature the first Apple processor for its computers. Some believe it will be an iMac, while other rumors have pointed to a new MacBook. In fact, some rumors have said Apple is going to revive the 12-inch MacBook to introduce Apple Silicon to the market.
At the Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this year, Apple said that the custom processors for Macs will feature industry-leading performance, and that it will complete the transition to its own silicon for all the Macs within two years.
Are you looking forward to Apple’s transition to ARM-based processors for the Mac lineup?
