Apple seems to be on the verge of announcing its first ARM-powered Mac hardware, five months after it announced that it was pivoting from Intel processors. According to multiple rumours, Apple will use its November 10 hardware event to showcase new laptops, with at least a revised, MacBook Pro 16, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13 due to be announced.

There have been hints that Apple plans undercut its Intel hardware with its ARM MacBooks, possibly in a move to encourage people to choose its new architecture over outgoing Intel MacBooks. Accordingly, the Nikkei Asian Review reports that Apple expects to sell up to 2.5 million ARM MacBooks by February 2021, which roughly accounts for 20% of the total MacBooks the company sold in 2019.

Mark Gurman and Debby Wu of Bloomberg have stated that these new ARM MacBooks will sport the same designs as Apple's current models, but that has not stopped Zone of Tech from having some fun with an ARM MacBook concept. There is no indication that the next MacBooks will look anything like these renders, but they are expected to be based on Apple's A14 Bionic chipset. The ARM MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13 are believed to feature a turbocharged version though, with up to twelve cores instead of the six in the A14 Bionic.
