Those looking forward to trying out Apple’s new Silicon powered Macs may not have to wait long, according to Ming-Chi Kuo. In a recent report published by the industry analyst, it is believed that the Cupertino-based tech company may release new MacBooks with the ARM-based architecture towards the end of this year.
Kuo notes that an Apple Silicon 13.3-inch MacBook Pro will go into mass production in the final quarter of 2020. At the same time, he strongly believes that a new ARM-based MacBook Air is also expected to be introduced alongside the Pro, or at least in the first quarter of next year.
Additionally, the analyst speculates that mini-LED equipped 16-inch and 14.1-inch MacBook Pros will likely arrive in the second or third quarter of 2021. He noted that both of these will sport an “all-new form factor design” along with the Apple Silicon architecture.
However, Kuo did not mention the Silicon-based iMac in his report which he previously predicted to see a release in late 2020 or early 2021. MacRumors, on the other hand, believes that a redesigned iMac could still launch within this year, but noted that it may still be an Intel-based machine.
Until Apple confirms these themselves, it’s best to take Kuo’s or other industry sources’ reports as mere speculations for the time being.
