After developing the first generation of Apple’s Silicon processor that we saw on MacBook laptops and more recently on iPad Pro and iMac devices, Apple has started the manufacturing phase for the next generation of its much anticipated M2 chip.
According to Nikkei, the trusted site, the manufacturing phase has begun for the new generation of processors, and it is expected to start arriving in devices by July 2021.
The source indicates that the TSMC processor company will produce the new processor using its 5-nanometer technology (N5P).
Apple’s M2 chip is expected; CPU, GPU, and built-in AI-related plugins.
Apple had begun its plan to develop its own processors based on the ARM architecture and leave Intel processors after years of cooperation, which succeeded in launching the M1 chip last year – which is found on the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, iMac, and iPad Pro devices. But it is less compared to the presence of Intel processors.
The American company plans to completely abandon Intel by 2022, so its new processors are expected to arrive on most of its devices this year.
It is worth noting that the leaks indicate the arrival of MacBook Pro devices with 14-inch and 16-inch screens in the second or third quarter of this year, that is, coinciding with the arrival of the M2 chip, according to Nikkei.
It is noteworthy that Apple revealed last week a number of smart devices and services within its conference that we covered here.
