Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has learned that Apple’s new 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and 24-inch iMac will be the first Mac products to ditch Intel processors for the ARM variety. While the MacBook Pro will look much like its siblings, the iMac reportedly sports an “all-new form factor.”

Kuo’s note to investors (via MacRumors):

(1) ARM13.3-inchMacBookPro:
The new model’s form factor design will be similar to that of the existing Intel 13.3-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌. Apple will discontinue the Intel 13.3-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ production after launching the ARM 13.3-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌.

(2) ARMiMac:
‌ARM‌ ‌iMac‌ will be equipped with the all-new form factor design and a 24- inch display. Apple will launch the refresh of existing Intel ‌iMac‌ in 3Q20 before launching the ‌ARM‌ ‌iMac‌.

If Kuo is correct, Apple’s entire Mac lineup will feature ARM processors by the end of 2021. Redesigned MacBooks with a new form factor and mini-LED display are also said to be in the works.
