Apple is gearing up for a significant overhaul of its Mac lineup with the introduction of the M4 chip family, reports Mark Gurman of Bloomberg. These chips are designed to emphasize artificial intelligence capabilities.

Introducing the first Mac M4

The report suggests that Apple is close to producing the initial batch of M4 chips. There will be at least three main variants, and Apple intends to incorporate them into all Mac models.

The transition to M4 will begin later this year, with updates planned for several Mac models all equipped with M4 chips, including:

  • A new iMac
  • A low-end 14-inch MacBook Pro
  • High-end 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models
  • A refurbished Mac mini

These upgraded computers are expected to hit the market later this year and continue until early next year. Gurman cautioned, however, that these plans are subject to change.

After this initial release, Apple plans to release more Mac M4s throughout 2025. This includes updates to the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air in the spring, the Mac Studio in the middle of the year, and the Mac Pro later in 2025.

M4 chip variants

According to Mark Gurman, the M4 family will comprise an entry-level variant and at least two higher-performance versions. These chips will emphasize artificial intelligence processing capabilities and integration with the upcoming macOS.

  • Entry-level chip (codenamed Donan): Powers the entry-level MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini.
  • High-end chip (codenamed Brava): Appears in Mac Studio, higher-spec MacBook Pro models, and a higher-end Mac mini.

In addition, the highest-end desktop Mac, the Mac Pro, will receive the new Hydra chip. Apple is considering improving the Mac Pro next year to address customer concerns about the specifications of its internal chips.

For higher desktop Mac configurations, Apple is exploring support for up to half a terabyte of RAM, an increase from the current maximum of 192GB.

Mac Studio powered by M3

Regarding the M3-powered Mac Studio and Mac Pro, Apple hasn't released them yet. However, there is a possibility of an M3 Mac Studio with an as-yet-unreleased M3-era chip and a variation of the M4 Brava processor.

June Developers Conference

This year Apple is focusing on adding new AI features to its products and improving the Neural Engine with more cores for AI tasks. The company plans to showcase these features at the developer conference scheduled for June this year.
