Apple will update almost its entire Mac lineup this summer to take advantage of the rising sales resulting from the pandemic, the report said.
- The new Macs are said to include an updated version of Apple’s M-line chips
- Apple is in the process of phasing out Intel chips in its computers, a trend that started in November 2020
- Mac sales soared during the pandemic as more people work from home
- The new Macs would also be redesigned and feature a MagSafe charger, different chassis, and more ports
Apple is reportedly planning to refresh nearly its entire Mac lineup this summer as it seeks to capitalize on the surging sales driven by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new products will reportedly include a new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, iMac, and updated Mac Mini.
The new computers are believed to feature updated variants of Apple’s M1 chips, which were introduced last November.
At the time, CEO Tim Cook said the company would eventually replace its entire line of computers with Intel chips with its own processors, but did not specify an exact timetable for when it would do so.
Apple reportedly plans to refresh its entire Mac product line later this year, starting with the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air
The M1 chips have a lower power consumption than Intel processors, which Apple had used in its computers for over 15 years.
As a result, Mac computers can now run the same apps as their mobile devices, such as the iPhone and iPad.
The new chips will reportedly include 10 cores, eight for high-performance needs and two energy efficient for tasks such as web browsing.
The current M1 chips have eight cores, four of which are high-performance and four are energy efficient.
In addition to the new processors, the updated Macs may also include new designs, MagSafe chargers, and an improved ability to connect to external devices such as monitors.
The news about the new Mac computers was first reported by Bloomberg.
Apple, based in Cupertino, California, has not yet responded to a request for comment from DailyMail.com.
In April, Apple announced a new iMac available in seven different shades, along with TouchID.
Apple unveiled new iMacs in April that come with TouchID and come in seven different colors, including purple and orange
The 24-inch purple iMac starts at $ 1499 and comes with an 8-core GPU, at least 256 GB of storage, and Gigabit Ethernet
The new iMac, which starts at $ 1,299, will hit stores along with the iPad Pro and Apple TV 4K Friday, the tech giant said Tuesday.
Under Cook’s leadership, Apple has seen a resurgence in Mac sales over the past 12 months as many employees work from home during the pandemic, resulting in a new one for new equipment.
In the company’s most recent quarter, Mac earnings reached a “record high” according to the company, with sales of $ 9.1 billion, up 168 percent year-on-year.
That accounted for nearly 10 percent of the company’s total quarterly sales during that period.
