Apple will launch Arm-based 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air at the end of the year
According to DigiTimes reports, Apple will launch 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro later this year. Unlike the past, these two laptops will be equipped with Apple’s own ARM processor instead of the Intel processor.
This report is basically consistent with the previous analysis by Ming-Chi Kuo, a famous analyst. Apple will first launch a MacBook Air equipped with an ARM processor this year, followed by a MacBook Pro equipped with an ARM processor.
It is true that Apple will launch a MacBook equipped with an ARM processor this year. This is what Cook promised at the WWDC conference, but today this report allows us to further confirm Apple’s specific MacBook listing plan.
The report also mentioned that Apple will update the iPad series product line at the end of this year. It revealed that Apple will launch a 10.8-inch full-screen iPad at the end of this year. Although it is not an iPad Pro, this 10.8-inch iPad also Adopt a full-screen design, equipped with Face ID.
The price of this device is much cheaper than the 11-inch iPad Pro, so it also uses a weaker A12 processor than the A12Z. It is reported that this device will replace the 10.2 inch iPad currently on sale.
According to the information we have obtained, Apple will cancel the MacBook Air series and replace the Air series with the MacBook series in the future, so we may not see the 13-inch MacBook Air, but will see the 13-inch MacBook.
