Apple's highly-anticipated Apple Silicon processors have finally arrived with the reveal of the M1. The M1 chip will feature an 8-core CPU, 7-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine all in one chip, allowing for big boosts in efficiency and performance. The chip will first be available in two of its most popular laptops: the MacBook Air (from $999) and the 13-inch MacBook Pro (from $1,199). Not only does this bring boosts in overall performance but both laptops will get a big jump in battery life with up to 18 hours on the Air and up to 20 hours on the Pro. The chip will also be available in a new Mac Mini (from $699), which is even more affordable while offering faster performance in apps like Xcode, Final Cut Pro, and Lightroom.
