We know that Macs are making the switch to Apple Silicon from Intel processors, however it’s going to be a prolonged procedure– and we’re uncertain precisely when it will begin. A brand-new report from the supply chain recommends the new tech could make a launching later on in 2020.
Inside sources suggest a new Bionic A14 X processor might be running the show, codenamed Tonga and manufactured by TSMC in Taiwan. It would allegedly have the ability to give the brand-new 12- inch MacBook a battery life of 15-20 hours between charges.

- PC Gaming Week is occurring on TechRadar
- There’s talk of a new Google Pixelbook
The exact same A14 X processor is being promoted for the 2020 version of the iPad Pro as well, so it sounds as though Apple could have a fair bit of hardware to flaunt prior to the year is out– a new tablet and a new laptop running the same chip.
ARMed and ready
The very same report from The China Times mentions a brand-new iMac coming next year, also running on Apple Silicon and with a custom-made Apple-made GPU inside it too. The graphics chip apparently has the codename Lifuka.
By switching to its own ARM-based chips, Apple is wishing to lower power intake and enhance battery life without too much of an efficiency hit. The more efficient processors need to likewise result in lighter, thinner laptop computers.
To put it simply, iPads and MacBooks will get more comparable than ever in the past. The change will need some work from app designers on the Mac however, which is why it might take a year or more to take place fully.
The news harmonizes previous reports that we’ve heard: brand-new Apple Silicon laptop computers prior to the end of 2020, but not yet in the biggest 16- inch MacBook Pro, which would most likely need a little bit more in terms of performance and power.
