A lot of people are waiting for Apple’s next-gen MacBooks with their own SoCs and as per earlier leaks and new info, the Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch will be one of the first to feature Apple Silicon chip. These MacBooks will be running on an ARM-based macOS and Apple is working on bringing as many apps it possibly can to the new macOS Big Sur.
Obviously, its hard for the Cupertino giant to make and ship all products earlier due to pandemic so previously, as per the tipster @komiya_kj, there would not be any unveiling event in October. However, now, according to the tipster, there will not only be a launch event but also these new MacBooks will be shipping from October itself.
The tipster has also shred some other info well like Apple will be giving both Apple Silicon and Intel CPU options as well, because it will not completely ditch Intel, as Tim Cook said in his WWDC keynote. However, the Intel options will be costing more, so it will depend on people and the performance difference which I am pretty sure Apple will be bragging about in its October event.
The MacBook Pro 13 will feature the Magic Keyboard and have thinner bezels as-in a large screen in a smaller form factor, making this the most portable MacBook Pro ever. Also, it will feature a 1080p webcam while most other specs will remain the same as the current-gen MacBook Pro 13. @komiya_kj was also kind enough to reveal the starting pricing of the new MacBook Pro 13 as $1099.
This is a huge difference in pricing as the 10th gen Intel-powered MacBook Pro 13 starts at $1,599 and that $500 difference can attract a lot of potential buyers. However, it all depends on how good Apple’s upcoming SoCs will be and how it will optimize its OS to adapt to the new CPU to give users a better experience. So, Apple fans out there, there is good news coming in October as finally Apple Silicon will be called to action.
