Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says in the latest edition of his Power On newsletter predicts that Apple will hit its two-year timeline for transitioning all Macs to “Apple Silicon” processors by November 2022.
Apple Silicon is, per Apple, “world-class custom silicon to deliver industry-leading performance and powerful new technologies.” It involves customized ARM technology, as well as Apple’s own System on a Chip. The first such chip was the “M1.”
Gurman expects that the last Mac to adopt the Apple-made chips will be the Mac Pro. He still anticipates Mac Pro laptops with “M1X” processors this year. The MacBook Air and a bigger iMac with Apple Silicon are anticipated in early to mid-2022.
Macs receiving Apple Silicon processors (all with the “M1” so far) are the 13-inch MacBook Pro, the Mac mini, MacBook Air, and 24-inch iMac.
