Apple is already preparing the imminent launch of the Mac ARM — 2022

Apple reported several months ago that new Macs with their own ARM processor would hit the market by the end of the year. This coincides with the possible speculation about a new event that would be held on November 17. Now Apple is laying the groundwork for this big announcement by inviting developers to engineering labs to explain what the transition will look like.

Developers receive training on ARM

When Apple announced the new ARM architecture processors, different developers received a kit of a custom Mac mini with an A12Z chip. In this way they can prepare for the transition that must be made in terms of applications. It should be noted that there is an important transition that we will attend in a few weeks. Currently all applications are adapted to a specific Intel processor that has a very different architecture. All of these must be adapted so that they can be used on a new Mac that has a processor with ARM architecture. This is a very important task, since Apple must guarantee to give all possible means to developers so that they do not have a Mac with ARM without any type of application.

Possible launch MacBook 12 inches ARM



That's why Apple is laying the groundwork for this announcement by inviting developers to a series of one-on-one lab sessions with Apple engineers. Appointments can be requested through the Apple website until November 1, so that these sessions can be held on the days November 4 and 5. This session will try to give developers the necessary training to optimize their iPhone, iPad and Mac applications for Macs with Apple Silicon. Apple engineers are undoubtedly the most appropriate to provide this training and the necessary instructions to perfect the work that developers have done in recent months with the kit they offered.

The Cupertino company does not clearly report the reasons for doing this type of session. But taking the logical side, it can be thought that they are preparing the ground for the event that could be held on November 17. Rumors suggest that the event would officially launch a 12″ MacBook with this processor. The rest of the equipment would be renewed with ARM processors over time when the applications are adapted and the transition they intend to make is established in the market.

Another clue that may point to an almost imminent event is macOS Big Sur. Yesterday, the first beta of macOS 10.0.1 was released despite the fact that version .0 has not been released. It is likely that the company is reserving this update to be released on November 17 itself, together with the announcement of the Mac renewal.
