There hasn’t been a year Apple held as many product launch events as it did in 2020. Apple will hold the last major event of 2020. This is expected to be Apple’s most important event of the year in terms of product strategy. That’s when the company introduced computer models using self-designed chips.
Information about these Mac models has been revealed by Apple since June during the WWDC developer event. At WWDC, Apple has promised to sell Macs using self-designed chips from late 2020. Bloomberg sources said Apple will introduce many MacBook models during this event.
Bloomberg says Apple is ramping up production lines for the 13-inch and 16-inch MacBook Air models. And will at least showcase at the event 2 13 inch models.
The biggest change in laptop models lies in the hardware. They are equipped with chips developed on the Apple A14 platform, the processor of the iPhone 12 and iPad Air. Earlier, Apple sold a special edition Mac mini, which uses the A12Z chip for developers to create compatible apps.
Apple A14 Bionic chip gives very good performance on iPhone 12. However, various tasks on the computer are still a big challenge in terms of processing power. At WWDC, Apple did not reveal much about the power of the computer models using Apple Silicon chips.
Apple could also talk more about Rosetta 2, the tool that converts Intel-compatible apps to Apple Silicon. Developers are also waiting for information about transferring iOS and iPadOS-based apps to computers. Apple Silicon chip-based Mac Pro and Mac mini models are also being developed.
This operating system has a completely redesigned interface, more like iOS. System sounds have also been updated, and basic apps like Safari and messaging will have new features.
Many other Apple products have been awaited from previous events but not released. Another device to be expected is the AirTags. This is a smart chip that allows you to keep track of important items such as bags and wallets through your iPhone.
