This month has seen another technological shift. It was created by Apple minus Steve Jobs. This Apple Silicon M1 chip could not have captured as much interest as certain past breakthroughs from Apple.
Many people are posing this question: How innovative is this Apple M1? Did it reverse the revolution effectively in what succeeded in bringing smartphones to the PC industry?
Rumor 1: There’s more to M1 chip!
Apple is on the brink of moving it up a notch, according to a credible report. Apple has apparently been working on a next-level variant, the M1X, after arming (sorry) the most recent MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac Mini with the latest hardware (which was built to substitute the industry-standard Intel chips). However don’t get too used to the word, since it isn’t verified yet.
While the latest MacBooks already boast a greatly improved and amazing battery life, things are about to get even better according to this leak. if “You think M1 is fast, you haven’t seen M1X,” this source said. The latest chip would mean that the current MacBooks are going straight to the top of our most powerful guide to laptops.
According to the leaker, Apple M1X will have more cores. That’s a first for a MacBook Pro 16.” But M1X’s name isn’t final just yet!
The hot news in the tweet above was posted by the Twitter handle LeaksApplePro. Apple would switch from an 8-to 12-core design composed of eight high-performance cores and four efficiency cores, illustrating the strength and speed jump.
Rumor 2: When is the release date, Ming-Chi?
Another rumor from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo provided the release date as the “second or third quarter of 2021” is alongside the leak above, per MacRumors. Redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro versions and a redesigned 24-inch iMac plus a narrower variant of the Mac Pro tower may be used in the models in issue. It makes sense that 2021 will be the year of transition for the flagship edition, as the 16-inch MacBook Pro was last revised in 2019.
Rumor 3: Revamping needed
Questions regarding the hardware included replies to news of revamped MacBooks with the M1X chip.
And another popular leaker, Twitter netizen @l0vetodream, indicates that with the latest versions, it would not just be Apple Silicon chips being sent out, something that pundits find difficult to believe.
Given how hot they get, it’s hard to imagine the revamped MacBooks will use Intel chips. Are you talking to the 16 inches before the redesign? 25th November, 2020
We wonder whether Apple can listen to its customer base’s desires with respect to other design features. More than one appeal for a touchscreen, including enthusiastic calls for the elimination of the touchbar, was included in the comments on MacRumours.
Although we can’t be positive if all of this would come to fruition, it’s almost as enjoyable as the launch itself to track a new Apple product’s evolving rumors. With bated breath, we expect the overhaul. Will the concept be as divisive as the possibility of iPhone 13 designs circulating on social media?
