Kuo believes that starting in 2021, all new Mac models will get Apple processors. The process to transition the entire lineup will take 12 to 18 months.

Additionally, the analyst says that a MacBook model with an "all-new form factor design" will go into mass production in 2H21 and a MacBook model will a mini-LED display will launch in the first half of the year.

The combination of custom designed chips, mini-LED display, and scissor switch keyboards are said to "create competitive advantages for MacBook models in two years".
