Analyst (Ming-Chi Kuo) – who is the most famous company leaks Camel Today, Friday: The company will launch a new MacBook Pro computer with its processor during the fourth quarter of this year.
And Apple announced during the annual WWDC 2020 developer conference last June that it would transfer its computers from Intel processors to Apple’s own Silicon processors. The company currently uses its processors for mobile devices, such as: iPhone smartphones, and iPads, but it has been dependent on Intel processors for computers for 15 years.
Apple CEO (Tim Cook) said at the conference: The company will ship the first Mac (with Intel Silicon) processors by the end of this year, and will complete the transition to the new processors in about two years. The company has yet to determine which computers will be the first to receive the new processors.
Ku – analyst at TF International Securities – said in noteWe expect Apple to launch new models of MacBook, including: the new 13.3-inch MacBook Pro computer with the Apple Silicon processor in the fourth quarter of 2020, and the new MacBook Air computer equipped with the Apple processor Silicon) in the fourth quarter of 2020 or the first quarter of 2021, and the new MacBook Pro computer measuring 14 inches or 16 inches, and all new models in the second quarter of 2021 or the third quarter of 2021 ”.
“In our case scenario, the MacBook shipments in 2021 will increase significantly to between 18 and 20 million units if Apple lowers the price of the MacBook Air equipped with the low-cost Apple Silicone processor, and the demand is to design The all-new form factor for the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro is better than the older models. ”
Mac devices with Apple processors will allow the company to control the Mac’s release schedule and provide improvements, such as: improved battery life, as you no longer have to wait for Intel to create and release new chips. But at the same time, it may face challenges to ensure that external applications run on its computers.
Apple hopes to avoid this challenge by providing a feature called Rosetta 2 that will allow applications that have not been updated for its new processors to run on new computers. It provides new tools to help developers move their apps.
