Apple’s upcoming “One More Thing” event, announced this morning and scheduled for November 10, will be a major breakthrough from tradition in many ways: it will be the first. The company revealed an Apple laptop that features its own custom Arm-based CPU. Apple is expected to launch three new laptops next week, a 13-inch MacBook Air and two different sized MacBook Pro models (13-inch and 16-inch) that remove Intel processors, according to a report. new fox words Bloombergby Mark Gurman.
We have emphasized that this event – taking place after last month̵7;s iPhone-specific and the newest Apple Watch and iPad exclusive event in September – will be when Apple launches Arm-based Mac , something the company confirmed after years revolved around the WWDC return rumors this past summer. But it’s not clear, at least until Bloombergof the report, which models can get the custom CPU first. According to Gurman, a redesigned iMac, a new Mac mini and a half-sized Mac Pro, all supported by the Apple chip architecture, are also in the works.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said during the launch of his own Arm-based Mac that the transition to full line support with custom chipsets would take about two years. That gives us an exact timeline of when we might see computers other than the MacBook series updated with Arm variants.
Apple tested how this could affect their software ecosystem by allowing developers to create and run software on Macs powered by iPad Pro processors. The core changes that Arm-based Macs will facilitate – most importantly the ability to run iOS software designed for iPhones and iPads on Mac computers – will also be triggered by the macOS Big Sur update. Coming soon, will bring iOS, iPadOS and macOS closer together than ever before. That OS update is likely to arrive or get an official release date next week alongside the new MacBook devices.
