MacBook Air, 13- and 16-inch MacBook Pro reportedly first Apple Silicon Macs


Apple’s first Apple Silicon Macs, set to make their debut at a recently announced Nov. 10 event, could include both sizes of MacBook Pro and a new MacBook Air.

The Cupertino tech giant announced the Nov. 10 “One more thing” event on Monday, and Apple Silicon Macs are almost certainly on the docket. Which specific Macs will be the first to receive Apple-designed processors is still unclear.

Now, Bloomberg reports that Apple will equip three new MacBook models with their proprietary silicon, citing sources familiar with the matter. That will include a 13-inch MacBook Pro, a 16-inch MacBook Pro, and a 13-inch MacBook Air.

Beyond being equipped with a new Apple chip thought to be based on the A14, the new notebooks reportedly won’t see any other major design changes. The new Apple chips could boost power efficiency, performance, and integration with the company’s broader ecosystem, however.

Earlier on Monday, a prominent leaker hinted that the Apple event could see the debut of two new 13-inch MacBook models. In this case, those could be the smaller MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air.

Well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has also forecast that the first Apple Silicon Macs could be a 13-inch MacBook Pro and a MacBook Air. He suggested that a 16-inch model with an Apple chip could arrive in early 2021.
