We’ve been hearing rumors about Apple releasing an ARM-based Mac for a few years. And now, we have the latest report related to that which claims that Apple might launch its ARM-based Mac as soon as next year.
According to reputable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac), a new Mac is coming sometime in the next 12 to 18 months and will feature an in-house processor not developed by Intel. Kuo is widely known as the best Apple predictor whose prediction related to Apple mostly turns out to be real.
Kuo made a similar prediction in 2018 that Apple would be ditching Intel CPUs to focus on its own custom-built processors based on the ARM architecture. And now, it looks like his prediction is going to get shape in 2021.
Well, if you talk about Apple, the company never fully confirmed its intentions to drop Intel for Mac CPUs. However, if we take care of its hiring in the past few years, it indicates that the company is pushing hard to build its own chips behind the wall to power the next-gen Macs, just like it started doing with the iPhone. In this way, it can reduce its dependency on other companies.
ARM is the foundation of Apple’s custom Apple Watch, iPad, and iPhone chips. The company has been kicking hard in the ARM design department to put the development on fire for the in-house components. Well, we need to wait a bit more to get some sort of confirmation on this from the company itself.
