There have been a ton of speculations about Apple’s move from Intel to its own chips. Named Apple Silicon, these ARM-based chips will drive all Macs soon. Apple announced the transition at the WWDC recently, and we now have some details about the first Macs to face the transition.
A new report from DigiTimes now says that the supply chain for new MacBooks and iPads in Q3, 2020. Additionally, the report says that Apple is planning on releasing a 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air powered by Apple Silicon by the end of 2020.
This new report actually puts the release of the MacBook Air earlier than predicted by Ming-Chi Kuo, who expects the Apple Silicon-powered MacBook Air to arrive either in the last quarter of 2020, or Q1 2021, as we recently reported. It does match with his prediction of the MacBook Pro hitting the stores by end of the year, though.
It remains to be seen whether Apple will stick with the A series naming for its Mac chips, or switch it up. However, TSMC will most likely fabricate it, with a 5nm process.
