Apple was still waiting for the first Apple Silicon Mac and the 12 inch Apple Mac Book is the first of its kind. This is a replacement for the Superlight mac book that was available between the years 2015 and 2019. Apple had announced earlier that Macs would move away slowly from Intel. Ever since then everyone expected the first Apple Silicon Mac to be thin and light. At the end of it all, we are all habituated in seeing Apple’s own chips in the Apple iPads and the Apple iPhones. Therefore the best way to test things will be with an Apple IPad pro-class mac.
It is reasonably fair to say that as of now it is expected by Pros that it will remain Intel hardware, therefore the rumors about the fact that the 2020 13 inch Macbook Pro replacement based on the Apple Silicon is hardly a possibility. The last ultra-portable Macbook had bit the dust because of the reduced price and the good performance of the MacBook Air of 2018. The Air has also been revised in 2019 and 2020.
As per the China Times, the new Mac will now use an A14X processor and it will weigh even less than 1 kg. This will be able to offer you a battery life somewhere between 15 – 20 hours. We have also seen this from the ARM software. It is based on the PC hardware and it has windows Qualcomm snapdragon. It has also been reported that there were atleast a total of three different A14 based Mac processors in the pipeline. The 12 core A14X ( eight performance cores will be produced by Taiwan’s TSMC similar to the other Apple chips by the end of this year.
