New MacBooks coming on November 10?
The “One More Thing” event is expected to reveal the new MacBook lineup as well as the iMac lineup running on Apple Silicon. The first Apple Silicon chips will be based on the Apple A14 Bionic chip that just debuted on the iPhone 12 series as well as the iPad Air. These ARM-based chips will be running the show on Apple’s computers from now on.
Initially, Apple is expected to make the switch to its Apple Silicon chips with the 13-inch MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro. The 16-inch MacBook Pro is also expected to get the Apple Silicon treatment. Apple already demonstrated the capabilities of the Apple Silicon chip at the WWDC by running video and photo editing tools. Hence, the new chips could bring more power to the entry-level MacBook models.
It remains to be seen whether the Apple Silicon brings down the prices of the entry-level MacBook laptops. The gains from the new chip are also expected to be seen with the battery performance too. Apple will release the stable version of the macOS Big Sur on November 10 for all current MacBook models.
Apple recently put the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro on sale in India along with the iPad Air 2020 and 8th Gen iPad. The iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max will go on sale starting this week.
