Last year in November 2020, Apple announced its own silicon processor called the M1. Apple launched new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini with an M1 chip. Apple also gave the hint when will it make the complete transition of its device from Intel chips to M1-based chips.
Bloomberg's Gurman has detailed when the transition will complete. Gurman said in his weekly newsletter, "The new MacBook Pros with more “M1X” processors are still on track for a release in the “coming months,” while a new high-end Mac mini will come soon after that." He also expects that the iMac will make the full transition by the end of next year and that a “revamped, smaller Mac Pro with Apple Silicon” is coming “later next year as well.”
Apple also planning to redesign MacBook Air for some time in 2022, which Gurman says will include MagSafe support as well. The new Apple-based Mac Pro could be much smaller in size as compared to the current Mac Pro, at almost half the size of the current version. The current Intel-based Mac Pro is expected to get one more update before the series transition to completely in-house M1X chips.
No more Intel-based Mac devices?
Gurman is to be believed then there is one more Intel device still in the works that Mac Pro. As per rumors, Apple could also launch a Mac Pro that could be powered by Intel's Ice Lake Xeon W-3300 processor. This could be the last Intel device that Apple will launch and is expected to launch in 2022. By the end of 2022, we could see Apple completely break up with Intel.
