The early Apple Silicon Macs are officially available to consumers. The first options include a 13-inch MacBook Pro, the MacBook Air, and the Mac mini, each of which is powered by Apple’s new M1 processor. There are still new Macs with Apple Silicon to come, and here are all of the details we know right now.
Apple has acknowledged that it will take approximately two years to transition the entire Mac lineup to Apple Silicon chips. The new Mac mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro are simply the first three Apple Silicon Macs available. We expect the following Macs to be slowly introduced over the next two years until the transition is complete.
One of the most anticipated Macs to make the transition to Apple Silicon is the iMac. The iMac received its most recent internal upgrade back in August, but that update simply included new Intel processors inside, with the external design remaining unchanged.
The iMac is long overdue for an industrial redesign. The external chassis was last revised in 2012, when Apple debuted a new iMac casing that tapers down to 5mm thickness on the sides. But this design feature can only be seen from the side, and looking head-on, the iMac has remained unchanged for a decade.
Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reported several times that Apple will release a redesigned iMac with a 24-inch display sometime in Q4 2020 or in Q1 2021. Now that Apple’s November event has come and gone with no new iMac, it seems most likely that the redesigned iMac with Apple Silicon will come in Q1 2021.
