Having ditched Intel this year, expectations are pumped up for Apple’s own Silicon chips to power it’s Mac lineup and also it’s iPhones. Obviously, it’s due to the performance differences, Apple distanced from Intel and now will work solo.
The only issue it has to face is to make those x86 apps compatible with the new ARM-based chips. This is the transition which Apple will take about two complete years, however, the Cupertino giant is already working on to bring the first products powered by these Apple Silicon chips this year itself.
Now, according to the reliable Apple tipster, @komiya_kj, there will be two Apple Silicons, as in SoCs, coming this year, which makes us wonder whether it’s one Apple A14 for iPhone and A14X for Mac. Already its known Apple will be having its iPhone event next month, so, more details can be gathered then.
Also, @komiya_kj leaked the apps which will be supported on the upcoming ARM-powered Mac:
- Pro Apps: includes Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro, and other Apple Pro apps
- Adobe Premiere Pro (Almost)
- Adobe After Effects (Almost)
It’s very natural that Apple’s iPad apps coming to Mac with some tweaks is kind of expected. Microsoft already has been working on with Apple and so the support for Excel, PowerPoint, and Word is kind of expected.
Adobe too had been working with Apple for quite some time and soon both of these famous apps should support new Macs. Also, it won’t take long to shift most of its x86 apps for ARM-based chips, once done, Apple will have a complete ecosystem powered by its own SoCs.
Now, the main speculation arises when will these new Macs arrive, will it be October or later? Only time will tell whether or not new MacBooks feature new Apple Silicon and how many variants of these chips will Apple announce this year.
