The rumors about the transition from Intel processors to ARM are not new for now. In 2017, there was talk about using the chip for simpler tasks. Then, in 2018, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo brought new clues about the launch of computers with the component in 2020 and 2021.

The new information revealed in recent days embodies the possibility for Apple to present new Macs with the component during WWDC 2020. The expectation, as revealed by behind the scenes information, is that Apple will launch two computers with the novelty in 2020 or in beginning of 2021.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo on Sunday (21), Apple plans two computers with the new architecture, such as the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro, which will maintain the same design as the current generation. Apple, however, will discontinue production of the Intel processor model shortly after launch.

The second launch with the novelty should be an iMac, with a new look and 24-inch screen. Apple also plans a new edition of the Intel-based computer. “Apple will release an update of the current iMac‌ with Intel in the third quarter before launching the ‌‌iMac‌ with ARM,” says the analyst.

The expectation is that the transition will take between 12 and 18 months and will reach all the computers launched by the company in 2021. Still according to Kuo, Apple plans a MacBook with mini-LED panel in the first half and the start of production in mass of a new notebook with redesigned design in the second part of 2021.

Official details about Apple’s new operating systems and computers are due to be revealed at WWDC 2020, which will be presented virtually this Monday (22) due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a disease caused by the new coronavirus.
