The Next Generation

Apple was already on a roll with its Mac lineup. Revenue in the Mac business surged during the fourth quarter of Apple’s fiscal 2020, ended Sept. 26—crushing the previous quarterly record to set a new high of $9 billion. But Apple isn’t sitting still with the Mac: On Tuesday, the company announced three updated Mac models that will feature the company’s new in-house, Arm-based processor—the M1. The chip will usher in the “next generation of Mac” by enabling major gains on performance, battery life and software capabilities, according to the company. Along with a new version of the Mac Mini desktop, Apple will initially launch the M1 with two of its laptop models-- the MacBook Air and the entry-level MacBook Pro (13-inch). The M1 “makes these Macs dramatically faster, provides all-new capabilities with extraordinary battery life, and enables the Mac to run more software than ever,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook on Tuesday, during a prerecorded announcement event. “This is exactly why we are transitioning the Mac to Apple silicon.”
