Apple to Use A14 Bionic Chips for Macs

In September, when Apple announced the new iPad Air and its new updates, colors, and design, something surfaced about the Apple A14 Bionic chipset.

In September, when Apple announced the new iPad Air and its new updates, colors, and design, something surfaced about the Apple A14 Bionic chipset.

To everyones surprise, the new iPad Air was based on the A14 Bionic chipset, The same chipset was used in the latest iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

In an interview with the German magazine Stern, Tim Millet (Apples Vice President of Platform Architecture) shared some insights into the Apple A14 Bionic chipset and how it separates them from the competition.

In the interview, Tim said, It takes my breath away when I see what people can do with the A14 Bionic chip and thus started a phase where people were starting wondering that Apple might come up with new Macbooks thatll be based on the same iPad Air and iPhone 12 A14 Bionic chipset.

Building a beast

The A14 Bionic chipset might look like another metal piece to an average user and a six-core CPU for more advanced users, but tech enthusiasts suggest that it is the most powerful commercially available 5nm chip in the world right now. Although its rival, the Snapdragon 875, could debut later this year. But as of right now, the Apple A14 Bionic chipset is the most powerful chip available for smartphones.

The A14 chip iPad Air performs better in the benchmarks sections than the current MacBook Air and the current MacBook Pro. Another advantage of the Apple Silicon for the iPad Air is the increased battery life that outperforms the standby time of other Apple products that are not based on the latest A14 Bionic chipset.

Which MacBooks will get the Silicon first?

At the last Apples WWDC event, the company intended to transition the intel processors for Macs with its in-house processor line.

In the coming event, Apple will start the most significant Mac transformation in 16 years. Some speculation suggests that the 16-inch MacBook Pro,13-inch MacBook Air, and 13-inch MacBook Pro are more likely to get the new chipset.

On November 10, 2020, Apple will reveal which Macs are getting the Silicon, and it is more likely to be a long event considering the line of products that Apple is planning to release in 2021.

The big Apple event One More Thing

On November 10, 2020, Apple will reveal the first in-house silicone processors for the new Macs, and the event will be held online. The event will be divided into three different sections for different products. The first part of the event will cover the new Apple Watch and iPads. The second will most probably cover the iPhones, and the last part will cover the latest product line, including the macOS Big Sur and the most anticipated ARM-based processors for the new Macbooks. The plan is to shift from the intel processor to Apple Silicon for all the Apple products, including the iPads and Macs.


Now Apple is moving into the in-house processor line, which reduces the manufacturing costs and improves the overall performance, making the new Macbooks cheaper and better.

Apple A14 Bionic chip is an exceptional hardware piece and probably the most powerful smartphone chipset right now. Using the same piece of hardware for the Macs could be a boon or a bane for Apple.
