Recently, the news of the upcoming SoCs of Apple was reported and also we got the rumor of the upcoming iPad Pro which will be the first launch of Apple in September. Also, there were speculations that whether or not Apple will launch its new MacBook Air laptops with Apple Silicon this year or not, however, that too also confirmed that the upcoming 12-inch MacBook Air will indeed be powered by the Apple Silicon only.
We also had the leak of that Apple will launch two SoCs this year only that made us guess that whether it will be the Apple A14 and the A14X Bionic chips or not – one for Apple iPhone 12 series and the other for upcoming iPads and MacBooks. Now, wccftech has confirmed the fact that the upcoming iPad Pro will be powered by the upcoming 5nm-based Apple A14X Bionic chip.
So, according to them, a report from China states that both of the upcoming iPad Pro models along with the upcoming MacBooks would feature Apple’s next-generation ‘A14X’ SoC. This was kind of expected as in this short span of time, Apple cannot make a significant change in its SoCs, however, do note it’s A12Z Bionic was more powerful than Intel’s Ice Lake CPUs, so you can expect the new Apple A14 to be almost 40% more powerful than A13 in CPU performance.
The report says:
“Apple’s supply chain industry pointed out that by the end of this year, Apple is expected to launch a Macbook with a 12-inch Retina Display, using a self-developed and designed A14X processor. The processor is codenamed Tonga and supports a USB Type-C interface. Less than 1 kilogram, because of the low power consumption of the Arm architecture processor, the battery life of the new Macbook can reach 15 to 20 hours. The A14X processor will also be used in the new generation of iPad Pro tablets.”
This totally coincides with recent info we received from the reliable tipster @Komiya_kj who stated that the 12-inch MacBook Air will be powered by Apple Silicon and will have a starting price of $849 only. The tipster also stated that the new MacBook will provide an excellent battery life of up to 15 to 20 hours along with 0.9Kg weight and a single USB-C port.
Meanwhile the existence of the upcoming iPad Pro and iPad Air 4 are also also confirmed from the leaks, so the new Apple A14X Bionic chip, made out of TSMC’s 5nm chips, will be powering the next-gen Apple devices this year.
