In 2020, Apple launched the marketing of its own processors for computers. Powering the range, the newcomer is dubbed M1 and thus now equips a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro of thirteen inches, not to mention the more discreet Mac mini. But for the moment, the results would be “only” of the order of 0.8% market share. Well far from the score of the iPhone 12, according to analysts.
The source of this number, TrendForce, is based in Taiwan, where the cador of hypotheses in the Ming-Chi Kuo field is also evolving. For her, the arrival of an additional MacBook Pro duo (14 and 16 inches) soon could then raise the trophy to 7%. That is already half of the balance sheet of the same brand during the fourth quarter of last year!
Calendar and release date
For the moment, however, these two products are not not confirmed, as is tradition at Cupertino. The manufacturer keeps the secret on its devices until the day of press releases or conferences announcing their availability day.
Kuo, for his part, still predicts that pre-orders will begin by second half of 2021. Just in time for the rollout of a major macOS update succeeding Big Sur?
