According to a report by Apple Insider, the Cupertino tech giant appears to be working on another Apple Silicon chip under the M1 lineup, the leaker claimed a more powerful version is coming with the new iMac Pro.
It should be noted that Apple now has a total of three variants of M1 chips, the base model M1, which was the first to be introduced and has an 8-core processor.
The other is the M1 Pro, which accompanied the debut of the new MacBook Pro, which has two configurations, the 8-core processor or the 10-core processor.
The latest M1 chip we have so far is the M1 Max, which flaunts a powerful 10-core CPU configuration.

SAN JOSE, CA – JUNE 05: The new iMac Pro is showcased during the 2017 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) at the San Jose Convention Center on June 5, 2017 in San Jose, California. Apple CEO Tim Cook kicked off the five-day WWDC with announcements of a new operating system, new iPad Pro and HomePod, a music speaker and home assistant. WWDC runs until June 9.
Gurman further stated that the upcoming launch event will showcase the next “high-end” iMac or Mac mini, which will start receiving the M1 Pro.
It should be noted that the Bloomberg reporter didn’t mention any details about a more powerful M1 chip than the M1 Pro.
However, the leaker, dylandkt, said it was releasing on “the iMac Pro”, which could be the “high-end” iMac that Gurman is talking about.
On top of that, the leaker has also said that the next Mac mini will also sport the M1 Max. The same leaker also previously predicted that the iPad Pro should be powered by the next-generation M2 chip.
Elsewhere, Dropbox recently said it was now working on support for its Apple M1 chip after previously turning down the option.
