MacBook Pro and Air with Apple’s new chips are launching next week

On Monday, Bloomberg shared some details of what, exactly, is coming at Apple’s November 10 event. According to the report, the company will launch a total of three Macs with Apple silicon inside next week: A 13-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, as well as a 13-inch MacBook Air. 

On the outside, these new laptops will be similar to their predecessors, but it’s what’s on the inside that counts: Apple’s new in-house, ARM-based chips, which will replace Intel chips inside Apple computers. 

Apple transitioned to Intel chips and away from PowerPC architecture in 2005 – a landmark decision for the company – but now Apple is looking to get more control over the design of its chips, as well as establish a common architecture across all of its products. 

There are no other details about the upcoming devices. However, Bloomberg’s report says that the two 13-inch models are further ahead in production, and that these two are certain to be shown at the event, while the 16-inch model might come later. 

Bloomberg also says Apple is already working on a redesigned iMac, as well as a new Mac Pro, which looks like a smaller version of the current model. 

The news isn’t particularly surprising, as Apple itself said it would ship the first Mac with Apple silicon by year’s end. The transition should be completed within two years.
