During this year’s WWDC online-only event, Apple announced that for future Mac Mini computers they will ship them with their own custom processor.
Developers could apply for a special Mac Mini fitted with an A12Z chip inside, which lets them prepare apps optimized for Apple’s Apple Silicon chips.
Now, those Mac mini developer kits have already started shipping, with some devs already receiving the “Developer Transition Kit.”
Just like with its industry-leading A1 chips for phones and other devices, Apple promises that the Macs that will use its new custom chips will have an industry-leading performance.
At WWDC, the company says it wants to launch Apple Silicon by the end of the year.
Since developers are already preparing with the Mac mini, it wouldn’t be far-fetched to expect a redesigned iMac in 2020 as well.
it would be a great way to drum up even more interest for Apple Silicon.
