Apple at WWDC announced its transition from Intel to its own silicon chips. The first Apple silicon-powered Mac is expected to arrive by the end of this year. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has shared more details about the first Apple silion-based Mac.

According to Kuo, Apple will launch a 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with an Arm-based chip designed by Apple. This MacBook Pro will look similar to the current 13.3-inch MacBook Pro. Kuo also predicts the possibility of another Arm-based MacBook Air that could launch later this year or early 2021.

Kuo also predicted MacBook shipments to increase up to 17 million units this year. Shipments could go up to 20 million units next year if Apple decides to reduce the price of the new MacBook Air, and there's high demand for the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models.

Apple has so far only said that the first silicon-based Mac will start shipping later this year. As for the complete transition, it will take around two years. Apple will continue to provide support for Intel-based Macs, and even said that there are Intel-based Macs in development.
