13-Inch MacBook Pro and Air to Be First Apple Silicon Macs, Rumor Has It

Apple officially announced its next special event for November 10 tagged ‘One More Thing’ ; everyone has been invited to tune in remotely at 10 A.M.

In this event of Apple, the company is likely to focus on its much raved about Apple Silicon Mac lineup. A reliable source has shed some light on what to expect. Don’t forget, last we had a MacBook Pro leak that hinted towards a potential 16-inch MacBook Pro launch. Let’s see what the latest update entails.

13-inch What?

A known leaker by the twitter handle @L0vetodream tweeted shortly after Apple’s event announcement with a cryptic message that read “13 inch X 2.”

Now if we were to jog our minds and decrypt keeping the previous leaks in-check; this could mean that we should expect two 13-inch MacBooks.

To further solidify this leak, recently, a reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also suggested the same. According to Kuo, two machines sporting Apple Silicon chip could be the new version of the 13-inch MacBook pro and 13-inch MacBook Air. In addition, he also believes that the Apple Silicon MacBook Pro could start shipping in as early as Q4 2020. As for the MacBook air, it may take a back seat and come later winter or early spring.

13-inch MacBook Pro and 13-inch MacBook Air to be Cheaper

As for the pricing details on both the 13-inchers, 000leaker suggested that Apple wants its new 13-inch Apple Silicon lineup to be cheaper than its intel-based counterparts in hope to increase and encourage the buying power of the consumers.

Apple has become the hub of countless leaks and rumors associated with not just its Silicon-powered Macs but some rumors even hint towards a new Apple Silicon-powered iMac debuting in 2021. Exciting time ahead and we are definitely excited.

Now as for the 16-inch MacBook Pro releasing this November, it could be just a rumor after all. But there’s a talk of a 14-inch Mac Pro that both Kuo and L0vetodream have deemed not to expect until much later in 2021. There’s a lot to take in; but with a pinch of salt as the official announcement by Apple could reveal something else entirely. Nonetheless, rumors and leaks are what we have to rely on for now

Apple’s November event will be live-streamed on Apple’s website. Additionally, the live-stream will be available on the Apple TV app as well, and likely on YouTube.
