One of the biggest rumors heading into today’s WWDC event is Apple’s announcement of its transition to custom ARM-based processors for new Mac hardware. Now, as per an investor note (via Macrumors) by noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the first ARM-based hardware from Apple will be a 13-inch MacBook Pro and a redesigned iMac. 

Starting with the ARM-powered 13.3-inch MacBook Pro, it will reportedly flaunt the same design as the existing Intel-based version, and will likely be launched either in the last quarter of 2020 or 2021’s first quarter. Moreover, an unspecified MacBook model with an all-new design and miniLED display will also be launched next year. 

Talking about the iMac, Apple is said to launch a new Intel-based refresh later this year – the last iMac with an Intel processor. This will be followed by a new version with a 24-inch display, ARM-based custom silicon, and fresh new design. Reports claim that the ARM-based chip will deliver a performance boost anywhere between 50% to 100% over the Intel processors. 

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
