What you need to know
- Apple's Macbook Pro is proving to be very popular.
- Reports state Apple has had to boost Q3 orders to keep up with demand.
- Apple is expected to see 20% sequential growth.
A report from DigiTimes reiterates previous suggestions that Apple's MacBook Pro is proving to be incredibly popular in 2020.
According to DigiTimes:
DigiTimes says Apple will "significantly increase" new MacBook Pro orders in late third-quarter of 2020, and expects to see its overall MacBook shipments to rise 20% compared to Q2.
The report reflects sentiment from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who, in a recent research note regarding Apple's shift to Apple silicon, noted that Apple's 2020 Macbook shipments are better than expected. From that report:
Kuo's recent report suggests that Apple's 13.3-inch MacBook Pro, the first rumored Apple silicon product, will begin mass production in Q4 of 2020, closely followed by a new MacBook Air in either the same quarter or the first quarter of 2021.
