New information about Apple’s upcoming MacBooks has become available thanks to Intel. 

On Wednesday, the technology and semiconductor manufacturing company introduced its next-generation processor microarchitecture called “Sunny Cove,” which is expected to come to Apple’s new MacBooks. 

The Sunny Cove microarchitecture is built on the 10nm process. According to Intel, it is using the leading process technology to ensure that its outputs remain “leadership products.” 

The new microarchitecture will serve as the basis for the next-generation Core and Xeon processors that Intel is launching next year. These processors are then expected to power the 2019 MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. 

Apart from the new lineup of MacBooks, the upcoming Core and Xeon processors are very appropriate for potential revamps of the iMac, iMac Pro, Mac Pro and Mac mini. So basically, Intel’s Sunny Cover processors could be used for all of Apple’s “Mac” branded products, according to MacRumors

Since 2015, Intel has been using and simply updating its Skylake microarchitecture. Therefore, the introduction of the Sunny Cove processor microarchitecture marks a new beginning for the chipmaker as it moves forward with fresh technology. 

In addition to the new microarchitecture, Intel is also discreetly working on a new graphics processor that is scheduled for launch in 2020. The upcoming GPU is going to give Apple another option should it move away from its current provider AMD. After all, the next-generation Intel GPU is perfect for future MacBooks and iMac models. 

“We operate in a world where we generate data at a faster rate than our ability to analyze, understand and help secure it,” Intel’s SVP of core and visual computing Raja Koduri said. “We see immense demand for computing architectures that evolve rapidly and scale exponentially.”

Meanwhile, Apple is also busy preparing new models of its iPhone for next year. Consumers may see a big change in the 2019 iPhones because Apple is reportedly considering adopting in-display fingerprint readers for its iOS 12-powered smartphone series, according to Forbes

Prior to adopting in-display readers for its iPhones, Apple is rumored to be testing the technology by releasing new iPads with display-embedded biometric sensors. Doing so gives the Cupertino giant the chance to properly vet the technology and prevent issues that could arise when incorporating the new technology with the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max successors.
