As Apple continues with its transition from Intel processors to Apple Silicon, leaker Dylandkt is sharing details about when the transition will be completed.
According to the leaker who has been pretty reliable in the past when it comes to Apple leaks Apple will complete the full Intel to Apple Silicon transition by Q4 2022.
According to his tweets the last Mac that will receive the Apple Silicon treatment will be the highly anticipated Mac Pro. Dylan has also shared details about the chip that will power the new Mac Pro noting that the processor on this desktop machine will “not be an extension of the M2” that is expected to come in Apple’s next generation MacBook Air and Pro. Instead it will be a further extension of the M1 beyond the cores of M1 Max.
The new configuration that will be an extension of the M1 Max chip will be more powerful as it will be able to take advantage of a desktop machine with way better thermals and no battery limitations.
Dylan has also shed some light on the upcoming replace of the M1 MacBook Pro. According to the leaker Apple will replace the current M1 13-inch MacBook Pro with a brand new 14-inch MacBook Pro with M2 chip. This machine could arrive in second half of 2022.
The new 14-inch model will have the same chassis as the 14-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro processor and will feature the same ports including a MagSafe charger, 3 USB-C ports, HDMI port and a SD Card reader.
Talking about the pricing of the 14-inch M2 MacBook Pro Dylan says it will be priced slightly higher than the 14-inch model. The M2 powered 14-inch MacBook Pro’s release will be accompanied by the M2 MacBook Air.
