Corroborating a report by Bloomberg, today Apple analysts Ming-Chi Kuo in a note to investors via MacRumors says that the company will announce a transition to ARM Macs at WWDC 2020 tomorrow.

In the note, Kuo says that the first Mac models in the lineup to receive ARM chips will be a 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and a redesigned iMac with launches set for Q4 of 2020, or Q1 of 2021. The iMac Kuo says will be redesigned and will feature a 24-inch display. As for the ARM 13.3-inch MacBook Peor, Kuo says it will remain mostly untouched.

Additionally, Kuo says that before phasing out the current Intel iMac with the ARM version, Apple will update the current model which may be the refresh rumored for WWDC. Plus, per MacRumors who has seen the note, Kuo mentions an unknown MacBook with a new design set for mass production in the 2nd half of 2021.
