However, don't expect a complete top-to-bottom overhaul of Apple's entire computing line to happen immediately, as Apple has already said its transition will happen gradually over the course of the next two years.
As per a report by tipster Jon Prosser, the iPhone maker will host an ARM Mac event next month wherein it would launch its ARM-powered Mac computers. With Rosetta 2, Apple is attempting to make sure that existing Mac apps on Intel chips run without any hiccups on the new CPU. The new processors are said to have 12 cores, with eight high-performance cores and at least four energy-efficient cores. According to his sources, the company's November Mac event will take place on the 17th of November. Well, ARM-based MacBook line-up is not completely new news, Apple announced the transition from MacBook powered by Intel processors to Apple Silicon Chip processors at the WWDC 2020 event.
Macs aside, the AirPods Studio were rumoured to make an appearance before the end of the year, leading some to believe they could make an appearance at the alleged November event. Theoretically, the new chips can offer longer battery life too.
Intel will still have some presence in Apple computers, however, with CEO Tim Cook saying that there are still a few computers with Intel chips coming down the pike that he was "really excited" about, and said that Apple will continue to provide software updates for Macs with intel chips for "years to come".
Despite the initial reluctance from brands to shift to an online-only focus for product launches, it's safe to say Apple has fully embraced the new digital normal. It is yet unknown as to which models will get the Apple Silicon treatment. Our cash is on the entry-level MacBook Air models as adequately as the MacBook Pro models. At this point, we're just waiting for the shoe to fall off Apple once and for all.
In addition to these speculations, Prosser claims that the Airpods Studio renders are solid and high quality. These Apple headphones can be used both ways and the chip inside will automatically detect the side.
