Apple’s latest documents confirm that the new MacBook is on the way. Now the question is whether geekerati should be ready to accept the tuning of an existing laptop or get excited about the first ARM-based Mac.
New information is coming to Apple with authorities in China (3C) and Denmark (UL Demko) regarding a new device with a 49.9 watt-hour battery. The big deal is that the trademark owner is listed as Apple.
Although it doesn’t say “this is a new MacBook,” it’s possible to extrapolate the data here and Apple’s currently released hardware to get an answer. Chance Miller goes to Columbo:
“The 4,380 mAh battery mentioned in this application is relatively small for Macs, but could be designed for the MacBook Air. For example, the 16-inch MacBook Pro contains a battery of more than 8,000 mAh. The 13-inch MacBook Air has an approximately 5,100 mAh battery. The power consumption listed here is also interesting. Reports suggest that the Mac is a 49.9-hour battery that is exactly the same as the 13-inch MacBook Air and lower than the 13-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro. ‘ “
The simplest answer (“another MacBook Air is coming”) is also the most spectacular answer. Not because of regular updating of speculation on a respectable ultrabook, because it happened four months ago. But because when it comes to the lightweight MacOS laptop, it turns out when Apple’s portfolio, powered by Intel processors, is fully restored.
In that case, the suspicion turns away from the Intel line to Apple’s new adventure with MacOS on ARM. Developers currently have access to Mac mini-style developer kits borrowed from Apple, but the first consumer MacOS on ARM devices is expected to be a laptop here by the end of the year.
Could this be the first ARM laptop? It makes more sense than a reworking of the March MacBook Air. A smaller battery capacity could indicate that the machine is smaller than the current air. Tim Cook and his team may decide they do not want to upset the current market balance in any way; This means that the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro brands would not be on the verge of bleeding from the ARM revolution.
In that case, we could look at the return of a single participant. The new and revolutionary MacBook could simply be … a “MacBook”.
