Nov. 10 event unveiling Apple Silicon MacBook Air, Pro, Big Sur
The Nov. 10 event will almost certainly focus on Apple's plans to move the Mac lineup forward to Apple Silicon processors — initially announced during the WWDC in June, with a follow-up teaser suggesting that the first Silicon Mac would launch sometime in 2020.
As of writing, Apple's Mac lineup uses Intel processors, but this isn't the first time Apple has transitioned its ships-of-the-computing-line to a new processing architecture. Long ago, in 2005, Apple announced plans to switch from PowerPC processors for Macs to Intel processors, during the WWDC, reports 9to5mac.com.
Notably, Apple has proved its prowess in creating proprietary processors through the intervening years, with the iPad and the iPhone. Now these in-house upgrades are coming to the Mac.
Apple's ARM Mac, 12-core design, 13-inch MacBook Pro
Apple's first ARM Mac round will likely be based on the same A14 architecture — as was seen in the iPhone 12 and the iPad Air. But the processors will be optimized to support larger thermal windows and power features of laptops. Back in April, Bloomberg suggested the first ARM Mac chip will come with a 12-core design.
Additionally, one of the initial Apple Silicon Macs will likely be a new upgrade of the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Both Bloomberg and a reliable yet cryptic Twitter leaker L0vetodream, along with Ming-Chi Kuo.
