The China Times, citing its own source, reported that the first iMac based on the Apple Silicon system-on-chip will be introduced in the first half of 2021. The novelty will work on the basis of the A14T chip, which was created specifically for desktop computers. Also in the report of the Chinese insider it is indicated that the first Apple processor for desktops was codenamed Mt.

It is worth saying that the supplier of classified information does not disclose the technical details of the new chips. It is only known that Apple ordered the production of chips using 5-nanometer technology from TSMC. Moreover, referring to the production chains of the “apple” company, representatives of the Chinese media say that now at TSMC factories they are producing the Apple Silicon A14X processor, which will be used in the new MacBooks – new items on the ARM processor, it is worth recalling, should be presented on November 17 at the next company event. True, unfortunately, at the moment these are only rumors, because Apple has not officially confirmed the presentation yet.

The leaked information also indicates that right now Apple, together with TSMC, is developing a new mobile processor Apple A15, which will be used in next-generation smartphones and tablets next year. This processor is also being created on 5-nanometer technology, and the first device to receive this chip should be the iPhone 13.

For the first time, Apple representatives announced their desire to ditch Intel processors and switch to their own ARM processors in laptops and desktops at WWDC. Probably, by that time the company already had certain developments in this direction.
