Apple announced a two-year change for its entire lineup when it unveiled its first Mac built around its flagship processor, the M1 CPU, in May 2020. In more ways than one, we are a few months back from two years- years of that version, and we are almost exactly the next thing in the Apple CPU upgrade. On Saturday, March 8, Apple will have its “Performance” event, which may include the introduction of one or more new Mac models and a new M2 CPU. So it is worth looking at the current status of this two year program and what can be saved.
Over the past 15 months, Apple has already switched to possibly the most popular Mac models: MacBook Air, iMac-inch 24, Mac mini-small, and MacBook Pro. The first three models are small chicks for Apple, all part of the first wave of Macs based on the M1. The 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro, meanwhile, took the time of the M1 Pro and M1 Max, showing exactly what power Apple can handle for professional and power users.
What’s next? The clock began to come together. Rumor has three different Mac models working their way through process constraints now, one of them displaying a laptop. To me, the most likely culprits would seem to be the higher-end Mac mini (to replace a model that also runs on Intel chips) and perhaps the higher-end version of the 24-inch iMac powered by M1 Pro and M1 Max. chips. Much like I would love to see a replacement for the 27-inch iMac (which some reports have called a replacement for the iMac Pro), I’m not sure the model is ready yet.
The Mac Pro, too, seems a little more likely: The May Developers Forum will be the perfect time for Apple to announce such a model to the broadcaster and relevant, while also adding a capper over that two-year period. in body. The world of the new laptop model is also more head-scratcher, with some suggesting that it will replace the 13-inch MacBook Pro, the only model left with the old design and Touch Bar. That seems easy to me – without the rumors that it will continue to support a Touch Bar, which I find surprising – but still another question yet: which strategies will work?
When you are thinking about Apple’s next update of your Mac operating system, we have a few databases to look at. We can trace the line from the original M1 to the M1 Pro and Max, which shows us how Apple took the basic architecture of its chips and then scaled it up with more cores and better graphics performance for users power.
Unlike Intel’s well-known brand reviews to its processors, this suggests that Apple may be rolling out new versions of its chips in a seamless way, leveraging the power of existing architecture. before jumping to the next generation
