Apple is widely expected to launch two new MacBooks during October. They will be the first hardware available to the public using new ARM-based processors instead of current Intel chips. This is part of a planned two-year transition towards Apple using its own silicon on the Mac platform.
Laptops are very much on the bleeding edge of technology, but there is not much hope for change on the outside – people who are looking for new design ideas and move to ARM will have to wait for the out-of-date technology. Half of 2021.
One area where Apple is behind the competition has been screens. Windows 10 laptops, particularly in high-end markets where the MacBook Pro resides, have featured innovations such as edge to edge screens and increased brightness. They have already begun to move to the next level of screen technology … the use of mini LEDs to create a more responsive screen with a wider and more accurate colors.
Apple’s move to the Mini LED on its laptop range has been discussed by many, but the latest details from analysts looking at the supply chain suggest that consumers looking for the best screen on their Macs will have until the second half of next year Will have to wait. Tim Hardwick reports:
“[Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo] Has stated that a mini-LED version of the 16-inch MacBook Pro is likely to be working for release in late 2020, and that Apple is also working on the 14.1-inch MacBook Pro, though it launched No mini-LED devices are in the works for 2021. -LED appears until the first quarter of 2021. “
Apple’s two suppliers for MiniLED screens are considered Epistar and Sana Optoelectronics. With two companies in the supply chain Apple can expect to see both flexibility in production, and both companies ensuring their screens are competitively priced. But this will affect two MacBook machines of this year, which will be the most noticeable.
The MacBook Pro and thew newly mono-monikorded MacBook will both be running the latest hardware inside the chassis, but with outdated technology outside. Machines that are going to be highly prized by Jikati, these machines may have game-changing internals, but if they come with old screens and laser bezels, they will look tired and boring on the outside
Perhaps this is the plan. Intel-powered MacBooks will not suddenly disappear overnight, and while Apple still has to confirm how much support computers will have over the next few years, they will remain a more reliable and stable option for critical business environments.
Assuming Gikati discovers all the flaws, bugs, and GoChats in macOS for ARM over the next twelve months, when ARM machines are ‘ready for mass public consumption’, new technology such as the Mini LED MacBook platform will be much Will give the need Refresh
It’s just that waiting another 12 months for Apple to catch innovations in Windows 10 powered laptops seems out of character, especially as innovations appear on various iPhones and iPads.
