Apple is expected to make the transition from Intel chips to its M1 chips in the next year and days. We’ve already seen that transition on MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini devices, but it looks like the company will have a slightly different approach when it comes to more premium Mac Pro computers.
A Bloomberg report suggests that Apple is running on two Mac Pro computers. One of them will keep the same design as the current model and will continue to use the Intel processor. The second model, which will be even more interesting, is expected in a smaller format and will resemble the Power Mac G4 Cube.
Apple is expected to use its M1 chip for the second model. Since the M1 is system-on-a-chip (SoC), there will be less need for external components because everything is contained in one chipset. This will allow Apple to free up more space and create a compact computer design.
