First ARM Macs will be MacBook Pros and an all-new iMac

As you may already know
that the WWDC 2020 keynote is happening online today and many predictions have been
made so far.

The one prediction that
might come true is that of the new iMAC design. It is being said that the new
iMAC design will be thinner and carry a 24-inch display. It might be released
in Q3 2020, but the ARM version is most likely slated for next year. 

The first ARM Mac might
be 13-inch MacBook Pro in Q4 2020 or Q1 2021. The new model may not be entirely
different from the current one. Once the ARM model is introduced, the
production of Intel model will probably proceed. However, there’s no word on
the authenticity of this news. Furthermore, the new ARM-based MacBook design
will begin production by the middle of next year.

According to sources,
it will at least take 12 to 18 months for Apple to make the transition to a
fully ARM-based line. The actual performance is dependent on how Apple proceeds
with the designs. Hence, if the Apple processor is even 50 percent more
efficient compared to the Intel chip, the battery life could exceed and a
faster performance could be observed.

If Apple goes ahead
with the introduction of MacBook Prose and iMac as its first ARM-based Macs, it
would literally repeat history. If you remember, at the 2005 WWDC conference,
Apple had announced the transition of PowerPC processors to Intel. And then in
the next year, the company released its first Intel-based Macs.

We’re not getting out
hopes up regarding the publicizing of ARM-based Mac hardware at the WWDC 2020.
But the possibility of Apple making the test hardware available to developers
is quite high.

What do you think?
