Apple documents confirm two mysterious new MacBooks

With the dust settling over Apple’s predictable iPhone 12 launch event, our attention can turn to something truly revolutionary emerging from Cupertino … the launch of the new macOS on ARM MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops next month. They are definitely coming, as Apple’s latest documentation confirms.

As reported by Consomac, the details and model numbers come from the certification submitted to the Eurasian Economic Commission.

Two details are worthless. The first is that many of the entries are for existing Mac computers. Given the upcoming release of macOS 11 Big Sur and the fact that Apple will ship the new Macs with the updated operating system, these certifications will apply to older Macs with the new code.

Three Mac model numbers (A2147, A2158 and A2182) were listed as early as June this year. These can be different configurations of existing models that may add more powerful graphics cards.

This means that the five new model numbers are likely Apple’s new Macs (model numbers A2348, A2438, A2439, A2337, and A2338). Three of these appear to be deskbound Macs and two appear to be MacBooks. Given that certification for EEC is usually shortly before the launch date (on the order of weeks), this is in the context of discussions about a product launch of Apple’s new MacBooks in mid-November.

These are no ordinary MacBooks. They will be the first ARM-powered Macs to go on sale, in line with Tim Cook’s proclamation at WWDC 2020 that Apple silicon hardware will be available before the end of the year.

Hand-picked developers already have access to ARM hardware via the Developer Transition Kit. This is a modified Mac Mini with the A12X ARM chip developed for the iPad family. Distributed so developers can work on macOS apps on ARM, this should ensure that many key titles can run natively on ARM when the laptops are released.

For everything else, it is assumed that Apple’s Rosetta 2 emulates the Intel x86 platform so well that older apps can run. However, there are currently no confirmed details on what the emulation supports.
