A new report by Bloomberg details Apple's roadmap for the Mac and its full transition to Apple Silicon. 

According to Mark Gurman, Apple will "barely hit its two-year timeline" for powering the entire Mac lineup with Apple Silicon. Gurman claims Apple is still on track to launch the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with "M1X" chipsets in the "coming months". Apple may also launch a higher-powered Mac mini by the end of the year.

For 2022, Gurman expects the entire iMac lineup to be equipped with Apple Silicon. Currently, only the 24-inch IMac is running on the M1 chipset. Apple is said to have plans for a "revamped, smaller Mac Pro with Apple Silicon" for next year.

Bloomberg reported earlier this year that there will be two new models for the Mac Pro. Nikkei Asia claimed in April that the M2 chipset will power the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, as well as a thinner, lighter MacBook Air. 

The upcoming MacBook Air is rumoured to come in iMac-style colour options. Tipster @dylandkt believes the new MacBook Air could be announced in the first half of 2022. Upgraded 1080p webcams are expected to debut on the new MacBook Pros.
