Shortly after Apple unveiled the first M1 powered Mac systems, rumours began swirling about the company’s next gen chip. According to reports this week, we’ll be seeing the Apple M2 relatively soon, with plans to introduce the chip in new Macs in the first half of next year.
As for Apple’s M1X chip, that will be reserved for upcoming ‘Pro’ Macs, such as the MacBook Pro, iMac Pro or Mac Pro. While the M2 processor will be a complete overhaul, the M1X is expected to be based on the M1, but with more cores and power draw for extra performance.
Upcoming M-series chips aren’t the only processors that Apple is working on. The company is still working on A-series SoCs for the iPhone, such as the A15, which should appear in the iPhone 13.
