Arm-based 12-inch MacBook Pro detailed specifications are exposed
At this year’s WWDC conference, Apple announced that it will spend two years migrating the Mac from the x86 platform to the ARM platform, and will launch an ARM chip-equipped MacBook before the end of this year.
Recently, there has been more and more news about Apple’s upcoming first ARM version of the MacBook. We have now confirmed that the distinction between MacBook Air and MacBook Pro will become smaller.
Today, Komiya, a well-known digital product tipster, announced on Twitter that the first ARM version of the MacBook is 12 inches in size, equipped with A14X Bionic chip (expected to adopt 5nm process), memory is available in 8GB and 16GB versions, and storage is available. It provides three storage options of 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.

Because the new MacBook uses the ARM chip, battery life has been greatly improved, so battery life will be a big selling point. The source said that the battery life of the new MacBook will reach 15-20 hours, while the Intel version MacBook with the same positioning will generally only last For 8-10 hours.
The new MacBook will be equipped with a 720p FaceTime HD camera. Of course, I think most people don’t care about this. The most concerned is the keyboard. Unfortunately, the new MacBook uses a butterfly keyboard. After all, the main feature is thin and light. If you want to buy this MacBook with a starting price of only $799, it is recommended to buy another mechanical keyboard.
