At yesterday’s conference call, Apple CEO Tim Cook hinted that it had a few more products to release before the end of the year. A developer taking a deep dive into the new macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 beta has found what could be three new Macs set for release before the year is out.

Apple has had a bumper year with the pandemic helping to drive sales of its products as more people work from home. Early sales data following the launch of the iPhone 12 launch suggests that it will maintain this momentum moving into next year. However, the company still has some tricks up its sleeve before the year is out with code in the macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 beta showing that it is set to launch up to three new Macs.

In fact, at yesterday’s earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the company still had a few new products to launch this year. Naturally, Cook didn’t go into specifics but speculation is that the new Macs are an Apple silicon-powered MacBook Air-like device and a refreshed Intel-based 16-inch MacBook Pro. The third Mac is thought to be either a new 13-inch MacBook Pro or the rumored Apple silicon-powered iMac.

Apple announced in June that it would be transitioning its Mac line up to its in-house custom ARM-based silicon over the next two years. At the time, however, it also indicated that it still had some new Intel-based Macs in the pipeline and that it would continue to support Intel-based Macs for “many years to come”. As such, it should not be a surprise to see a mix of new Macs arrive before the year’s end powered by either Apple or Intel silicon. Next year, however, should start to see new Intel-based Macs start to drop off the radar altogether.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
