American tech giant Apple has already launched their new iPhone series iPhone 12. But this time the company plans to launch a new MacBook. In fact, Apple has organized an event on November 10, for which they have also started inviting the media. This invitation letter emphasizes the word ‘One More Thing’. Looking at this phrase, it seems that Apple is going to unveil a big product in this event. Earlier at the WWDC 2020 virtual event, the company announced that they would launch an ARM-based MacBook later this year. So, it looks like they will launch a new MacBook at this event. Apple will launch three new MacBooks with in-house silicon processors next week, according to a Bloomberg report. For 15 years now, they have been using Intel processors on MacBooks. But this time Apple is emphasizing the use of in-house silicon processor.
Which MacBook models will be launched?
Apple is expected to launch two new 13-inch and 16-inch MacBook models at the event. The 13-inch models will be the 13-inch MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. The 13-inch models are made by Foxconn. On the other hand, the 16-inch MacBook Pro model is being developed by Quanta Computer Inc.
Without the new ARM-based chip, these MacBooks won’t change much. The new MacBooks will have the same design as the 2020 MacBooks. But the ARM-based MacBook will make Apple’s work easier. The next update of Apple’s own operating system macOS Big Sur may also be announced at this November 10 event. Hopefully, this operating system can be used on newer MacBooks as well as older MacBooks.
According to a Bloomberg report, ARM-based Mac processors will be made with the A14 chip. This chip has already been used in iPhone 12 series and iPad Air. Let’s see how this new MacBook performs though. The two 13-inch models of the new MacBook will be available from the end of November. But the 16-inch MacBook Pro can be found from the beginning of 2021.
