Now that Apple released a new Apple Watch, iPad, iPhone, and HomePod mini, Apple fans and leakers are waiting on the highly-anticipated new MacBook.

Since June 2020, Apple teased its fans about a new MacBook and Apple Silicon iMac that will use Apple's first custom processing chip. During Apple's annual WWDC event, the big tech company shared its plans on transitioning away from Intel's technology to its own starting with the Macs.

The latest Boot Camp update for Macs revealed a hint about a new MacBook that could arrive in 2020.

Apple hints at 16-inch MacBook Pro for 2020

Apple previously released the current 16-inch MacBook Pro back in November 2019. The latest Boot Camp update launched by Apple hints at a MacBook Pro release in 2020.

The Boot Camp 6.1.13 update improves the compatibility of your Mac when running Windows through Boot Camp. This update: - Improves audio recording quality when using the built-in microphone - Fixes a stability issue that could occur during heavy CPU load on 16-inch MacBook Pro (2019 and 2020) and 13-inch MacBook Pro (2020)

Boot Camp is used to help Mac devices run Windows and Linus systems. The latest update resolves issues with the "audio recording quality" and "stability issues for heavy CPU load on the 16-inch MacBook Pro (2019 and 2020) and 13-inch MacBook Pro (2020)."

Through deduction, the only product from the three MacBook models that are unreleased is the 16-inch MacBook Pro 2020. Assuming that including this detail was not a system error on Apple's part, Apple fans could expect to see a new 16-inch MacBook quite soon.

As we approach November, Apple fans and leakers will wait for the MacBook 2020 rumor to be confirmed at relatively the same time as the highly-anticipated November virtual Apple Event.

Apple Silicon iMac could arrive in early 2021

The latest report discusses Apple's plans to launch the first Apple Silicon iMac as early as 2021.

The report concludes Apple's schedule for the new iMacs based on the latest supply chain production of the latest A14 chip featured in the iPad Air and iPhone 12.

In addition to the first Apple Silicon processor A14X used in Macbooks that has been mass-produced by TSMC 5nm, according to Apple's supply chain news, Apple will launch the first self-developed GPU codenamed Lifuka next year, and the R&D codenamed Mt.Jade The first desktop computer processor A14T, both chips will be produced using TSMC's 5nm process in the first half of next year.

The report further elaborates that the 2020 16-inch MacBook Pro could feature the A14X chip, also referred to as 'Tonga' chip, alongside a rumored new iPad Pro.

Considering that Apple's focus for the rumored November 17 event will be on new Macs, the iMac with the next generation A14T chip, also known as 'Mt. Jade' chip, could be featured shortly after.

While these speculations are exciting to hear about, Apple fans will be waiting on Apple's announcement about the November 17 event on November 10.
