Apple just announced its November 10 event where it is expected that the company will announce its first-ever Macs with custom silicon. Now, a new leak suggests that Apple will be launching two new Mac models, and both will be 13-inches.
Reliable leaker @L0vetodream took to Twitter to reveal that Apple will launch two 13-inch MacBook models at its November 10 event.
Another reliable leaker, Mark Gurman, says that the Apple will launch three new Macs at the event: a 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air and a 16-inch MacBook Pro.
New story: Apple is set to reveal its first Macs with its own chips on Nov. 10, replacing Intel. The the first ones: 13-inch MacBook Air, and 13 and 16-inch MacBook Pros. Also in the works: a redesigned iMac, new Mac mini and a half-sized Mac Pro https://t.co/IO81MyfgGi
This eradicates previous rumors suggesting that Apple would launch a 12-inch or 14-inch MacBook alongside an iMac. Previous rumors also suggested the company would launch a MacBook Air, which seems to remain true.
With both models having a size of 13-inch, we can speculate that they will probably be a 13-inch MacBook Air and a 13-inch MacBook Pro.
Both Macs are supposed to feature Apple’s custom silicon instead of an Intel processor, offering considerable improvements in terms of performance and efficiency in comparison with the latter.
The new processors are similar to the A-series chips currently present in the iPhone 12 lineup and the latest iPad Air 4. The similarity in processors could also lead to universal apps—apps that could run both on iPhone and the Mac.
These chips are designed in-house by Apple and manufactured by TSMC in Taiwan.
Apple announced the transition at its WWDC conference earlier this year. The November 10 Mac event may also feature additional product launches from Apple including AirTags and AirPods Studio Headphones.
