A new report from Bloomberg claims Apple is planning to upgrade its entire Mac range with big jumps in performance thanks to new Apple silicon.
From Mark Gurman:
Alongside reports of a new MacBook Pro with a 10-core Apple silicon chip, Gurman says that Apple is planning:
- A "revamped" MacBook Air
- "A new "low-end MacBook Pro"
- A new Mac mini
- A larger iMac
- A new Mac Pro
Gurman says Apple put the larger iMac on hold so it could focus on releasing the 24-inch model.
Gurman says a new Mac mini will feature the same 10-core chip as the MacBook Pro, capable of supporting up to 64GB of RAM and featuring 16 or 32 graphics cores.
The new Mac Pro is where the Apple silicon party really starts, however:
Gurman says the new Mac Pro has been on the cards for some time and will look like a smaller version of the current model (pictured), as brought to life by concepts from Jon Prosser.
Gurman also says a new MacBook Air that could debut at the end of this year, Apple has a "direct successor" to the M1 planned that will be faster despite having the same number of cores, it will also have more graphics cores than the M1. The "low-end" 13-inch MacBook Pro will also reportedly feature this same chip.
