Apple had announced its decision to shift its Mac-Lineup to Arm-based processors earlier this year. Apple’s dependence on Intel processors and their underwhelming performance was the cause of the decision.
The forthcoming 12 core Arm processor will be manufactured on TSMC’s 5 nm node. It should provide better performance and will save a notable amount of power. To ensure support for every major software upon launch, Apple sent out developer transition kits and is still working to optimize first-party apps and macOS for their new processors.
It is rumored that the Arm processor might debut in a 13-inch MacBook Pro or a new MacBook Air. Bloomberg’s recent report states that the dedicated launch event for the processor will take place in November. Not to forget Apple has already provided developers with an Arm based Mac Mini.
