During the presentation just before the iMac announcement, Tim Cook stated that Apple is selling more M1-based Macs than Intel-based Macs. Many customers lauded the “revolutionary breakthroughs” on those Macs as Cook quoted. The MacBook Air and MacBook Pro see dramatic increases in both performance and battery life thanks to the power efficiency of the M1 chip.
Earlier this week, Apple debuted the colorful 24-inch iMac with M1 that pays homage to the original iMac G3 in rainbow colors. Apple is able so reduce the volume by 50% so that it is 11.5 mm thin. The chin contains the entire motherboard. However, some people have criticized the new design with its white bezels, chin, and pastel colors.
Apple originally announced the transition back in WWDC 2020. It expects to complete the transition by two years. Other products we can expect in the pipeline are the 14″/16″ MacBook Pro with Mini LED, a larger 32″ iMac, and a smaller Mac Pro. Apple will still sell the Intel counterpart (2019) along with smaller Mac Pro.
