The first Mac computers on ARM processors will be shown in November
This week, Apple will hold the second presentation of new products in the fall of 2020 and will present the expected line of iPhone 12 smartphones, as well as a modified version of the HomePod mini smart speaker for $ 100. However, according to the authoritative publication Bloomberg, this season of presentation of new products from Apple will not end. Next month, the company will present computers based on proprietary ARM processors.

This information was received by a well-known insider and Bloomberg expert mark Gurman. Previously, the specialist has repeatedly provided reliable news from Apple, receiving them from sources in the company. It was Gurman who first suggested that the iPhone 12 line will be shown at Apple's second presentation in October, rather than at the September one, where the new iPad Air and iPad and Series 6 smart watches were presented.

The first announcement of Apple's plans to completely switch to using proprietary ARM processors in Mac computers, instead of Intel CPUs, was announced at the WWDC conference in June. Then Apple CEO Tim cook called these plans historic for the company. Due to the importance for Apple of switching to its own processors, it was decided to allocate the presentation of new computers to a separate event, which will be held in November 2020.

The first computer to use ARM branded processors will be the MacBook Pro with a 13-inch screen. The computer will use SoC A14X, a modification of the A14 processor used in the iPad Air and iPhone 12 line. The processor is manufactured using a 5 nm process.

The assumptions made by Gurman fully correspond to the insider information of another popular analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, who also said that after the 13-inch MacBook Pro computer, the company will introduce an iMac with a diagonal of 24 inches on an ARM processor.
