Mac Return: How Apple Silicon is going to announce a new age in WWDC 2021

The next year will be Apple's best storyline Macintosh, starting with a great virtual celebration of the future of the Mac at the Worldwide Developers Congress. The stage will be the most spectacular in the companY's history.

In comparison, WWDC 2020's bombshell announcement that Apple is moving the Mac from Intel to its own custom silicon has been a real teaser for developers as well as customers. In the autumn, Apple started a three-size M1-based Mac, with a strong attempt to convey "only you wait" to all sports legacy designs.

We have been waiting for June 7-11, and WWDC 2021 is now official. While reports of an Apple special event before, in April, the new iPad, AirPod, and maybe its rumored "AirTags" are likely to be displayed in the business. There is also a new Apple TV outside of it, but the new Mac hardware – and software upgrades that follow it – is more logical for the WWDC.

It is not only possible that we will get new Macs on the WWDC, but it is also possible that Apple will be beginning to flex its chipmaking muscles with higher ends for true "pro" users — particularly developers who are keen to use macOS, iOS, and iPadOS for their coding.

If M1 is a power supply benchmark across Intel, AMD, and the legacy PC industry, then what will follow is a full-frontal attack: a variety of items from your desktop to your wrist, all in a shared infrastructure that encourages developers the creation of applications and will make it harder than ever before for customers to overlook Mac as an alternative feasible.

It's a game of a platform. As the iPod was a Trojan horse that interested consumers in the Mac ecosystem, the iPhone took it to the next level. Today, Apple is in a position to own the user experience to the extent that no technology company was ever able to do with all the apps and data coordinated through large and small devices through a single beating heart in the center of all its devices.

Software? Hardware? Both of them.

For world-class design married to world-class hardware, Apple was always popular. But there was a catch: its hardware partners restricted Apple's design skills.

Some suppliers will depend on Apple for different parts, such as memory and wireless connectivity. Over the years, the firm has taken charge of the system components where CEO Tim Cook, along with his team, feels that Apple can do more on its own.

The Apple Silicon switch is still the greatest Mac game changer. Apple must stop designing itself on the basis of Intel's legacy x86 architecture by exchanging the brains of its computers.

There were several issues with Intel processors, such as heat dissipation and energy consumption. This affects the design of larger and more cumbersome machines that require larger batteries and the ability to operate at safe operating temperatures.

Naturally, Apple has not violated the laws of physics by making its own chips. But the company now has increased flexibility to push Mac design in new ways, in new form factors, with new looks and no sacrifice for power. by making its own low-performance, high-performance processors.

WWDC has always been a software-focused presentation and it possibly will not improve this year with the official reveal of the following generation of macOS — expected to be known as macOS 12.

But with the latest design options available to Apple Silicon for the Mac, Apple will push the hardware and software in a way that has not yet been possible in a tandem way. The Mac and the Apple Ecosystem will become a real union for hardware and software more than ever before for WWDC 2021.

The GPU X-factor

The new Apple Silicon models are supposed to be more refined than the M1 chip that was first released last year to the MacBook Air, Mac mini, and MacBook Pro computers. If they are called "M1X," "M2" or something else, these processors need to provide developers and other technical users with increased capabilities, including extended support for external monitoring, increased port access, and faster processing capacity.

Whereas faster chips are inevitable and we already know what Apple truly is capable of using the M1, Apple's Silicon strategy still contains a gaping hole: graphics.

Currently, Apple relies on AMD for its most potent computers, including iMac, Mac Pro, and MacBook Pro, to process discrete graphics. Apple is unable to continue to use AMD graphics technology in tandem with Apple Silicon for these computers. But does Apple want to rely on an external GPU partner?

We saw with the M1 chip a glimpse of Apple's on-the-board graphics system capabilities! We do not yet know how (or whether) the business wants to manage discrete graphics.

In the WWDC 2021 or even in 2021, we might not obtain a response to discrete graphics. But at least we can probably see what a more efficient SoC GPU can do, be it the "M1X" or „M2."

Don't miss iPhone and iPad as well

The goods of Apple are complementary not only from the perspective of customer experience but also from the perspective of research and development. We have seen progress time and time again in some platforms and devices for other Apple products.

Before spreading to iPad and Mac, Touch ID was pioneered on iPhone 3D Touch is now being made on the iPhone (RIP) and Apple's Mac (always alive) trackpad by Apple Watch Force Touch (RIP). The custom silicon of Apple, dating back to the first-generation iPad's A4 processor, formed part of a long-term plan to move the Mac to its ARM CPUs.

Although we almost definitely will not get new iPhone hardware at WWDC 2021, both iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 will give us our first glimpse. And the distinctions between their respective devices will become more blurred with the iPhone, the iPad, or Mac all running the same chip architecture.

Apple has consistently said that it doesn't want to converge these networks, so don't expect an OS to control all of them. But with the software upgrades this year, there is probably improved parity of features on the Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

Just at the start

New designs. Factors of the new shape. New capacity. New colors. All are on the Mac table, so the WWDC is so happy and hopefully complete this year.

M1 Macs last year were quite stopping by purchasing Apple more time before the next generation of Mac hardware could be seen. And this hardware is going to be a lot, much more than the Apple Silicon.

On WWDC 2021, Apple will not disclose all its cards. The Mac switch to Apple Silicon is a two-year operation, and it only takes us one year.

But WWDC 2021 should provide us with a better idea of how Apple plans the Mac platform's future. Our first impression of personal computing in the next decade starts on 7 June.
