AI-Focused Apple M4 Chips Could Debut This Year

Apple’s focus on AI is expected to stretch beyond the upcoming iPhone software, with a new report claiming that the M4 family of Mac chips could also be aimed squarely at artificial intelligence. What’s more, they could debut this year.

That’s according to a new Bloomberg report which claims that Apple’s M4 Macs are starting to near production with three models available.

Apple is reportedly expecting to update its entire Mac lineup with M4 silicon, too.

Apple is aiming to release the updated computers beginning late this year and extending into early next year. There will be new iMacs, a low-end 14-inch MacBook Pro, high-end 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, and Mac minis — all with M4 chips. But the company’s plans could change.

Some Macs will have to wait until next year, however, with the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Air refreshes coming next spring and the Mac Studio around the middle of the year. The Mac Pro is set to get an M4 update later in 2025, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman claims.

In terms of AI, the report says that Apple plans to “highlight the AI processing capabilities of the components and how they’ll integrate with the next version of macOS.” Apple is already expected to announce the macOS 15 software update at WWDC in June, with the software then being made available to the public this fall.
