Apple to Hire Veteran BMW Maker and EV Canoo Cofounder for 'Project Titan' Electric Car

Apple Inc., a tech giant that has already proven itself effective in the tech industry, is working on a new project: an electric car. The company labeled it as "Project Titan," and rumors have it that former BMW executive and EV Canoo startup co-founder Ulrich Kranz will be working on the project. According to Business Insider, Apple hired Kranz into the project about one month after the latter let go of his CEO position in the EV startup company, Canoo. Apple' Project Titan' - the Best of the Best According to a recent The Verge report, Apple seems to be partnering with the best people in the EV industry. As per Bloomberg, Kranz has been reporting to Doug Field, Tesla's former executive, now the head of Apple's electric vehicle Project Titan. Field recently confirmed to The Verge that Kranz is indeed a part of the tech giant's Project Titan. According to reports, Apple plans to have a fully functioning self-driving electric car soon. The company has also had several meetings with Kia, Nissan, and Hyundai about possible partnerships, which could work well for all companies considering they are all exceptional in the tech and vehicle industry. However, it is essential to know that Apple has never confirmed its plans in building an Apple electric car -- well, publicly, at least. Kranz's History Kranz is a big deal in the vehicle industry because he has extensive experience in BMW, totaling 30 years. He also became a senior vice president for approximately 15 years during his stay in BMW. As a leading executive in BMW, Kranz took part in developing massive car models like Minis, sports cars, and BMW's first SUV. Kranz also led the company's Project I, and is responsible for designing electric vehicles to be used in large cities. As Kranz said his goodbyes to BMW, he spent three months as Faraday Future's Chief Technology Officer before starting his own EV company, Canoo, back in 2017. Apple's Electric Car - 'Project Titan' Apple's new electric self-driving car is internally referred to as Project Titan."The reason behind its name is still unclear until now, but we can assume that the vehicle will be powerful. The Cupertino-based tech company recently patented several vehicular features, and CEO Tim Cook has hinted that they are working on an electric vehicle project. However, he also said that most of Apple's ideas hardly see the light of day. Various reports have different claims on the car's release date. Reuters reported that Apple would release it by 2024. Still, Bloomberg recently concluded that the vehicle is nowhere near ready for production, and could take Apple at least five to seven years to manufacture it. If Project Titan pushes through, Apple would be one of the phone-maker giants slowly leaning into the electric vehicle company.

SLS: First view of Nasa's assembled 'megarocket'

Nasa has assembled the first of its powerful Space Launch System (SLS) rockets, which will carry humans to the Moon this decade. On Friday, engineers at Florida's Kennedy Space Center finished lowering the 65m (212ft) -tall core stage in-between two smaller booster rockets. It's the first time all three key elements of the rocket have been together in their launch configuration. Nasa plans to launch the SLS on its maiden flight later this year. During this mission, known as Artemis-1, the SLS will carry Orion - America's next-generation crew vehicle - towards the Moon. However, no astronauts will be aboard; engineers want to put both the rocket and the spaceship through their paces before humans are allowed on in 2023. Test success for world's most powerful rocket Nasa's giant SLS rocket: a guide Artemis: To the Moon and Beyond Nasa chooses SpaceX to build Moon lander The SLS consists of the giant core stage, which houses propellant tanks and four powerful engines, flanked by two 54m (177ft) -long solid rocket boosters (SRBs). They provide most of the thrust-force that propels the SLS off the ground in the first two minutes of flight. Both the core stage and the SRBs are taller than the Statue of Liberty, minus its pedestal. Over Friday and Saturday, teams at Kennedy Space Center used a heavy-lift crane to first hoist the core stage, transfer it from a horizontal to a vertical position, and then lower it into place between the SRBs on a structure called the mobile launcher. This structure currently resides inside the huge, cuboid Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). The mobile launcher allows access to the SLS for testing, checkout and servicing. It will also transfer the giant rocket to the launch pad. Engineers began stacking the SRBs on the mobile launcher in November last year. While this was going on, the core stage was attached to a test stand in Mississippi, undergoing a comprehensive programme of evaluation known as the Green Run. In March, the core stage engines were fired successfully for around eight minutes - the time taken for the SLS to get from the ground to space - in the Green Run's final and most important test. After refurbishment, the core was taken by barge to Kennedy Space Center. Artemis-3, which will be the first mission to land humans on the Moon since Apollo 17 in 1972, should launch in the next few years. Nasa recently awarded the contract to build the next-generation Moon lander to SpaceX, which is adapting its Starship design for the purpose. Follow Paul on Twitter. ...

Microsoft accidentally leaks the name of its next operating system -- and it isn't Windows

On June 24 Microsoft is hosting a big event where it will unveil the future of its Windows operating system. Although we know changes will be made to the look and features of the OS, what we don’t know is what this new and (hopefully) improved version of Windows will be called. There have been a number of suggestions, including Windows 365, WindowsOS or simply "Windows", but so far most of the clues have been pointing to it being Windows 11. In one way this name makes a lot of sense -- it helps Microsoft move away from some of the negativity that surrounds Windows 10 and also sells the fact that this is a BIG change. However, Microsoft has in the past said that Windows 10 will be the "last" version of Windows. While the company is perfectly within its rights to change its mind and bring out Windows 11, another clue has surfaced which suggests that Microsoft might be planning to adopt a macOS-style naming convention with future versions of its software. Apple gives new updates of its OS a geographic tag, with the latest being macOS Monterey. An addition recently found in some Microsoft metadata (and later removed) suggests the codename being given to the future Windows update -- Sun Valley -- could well end up being the actual name of the product. WindowsLatest noticed that a Microsoft support page published yesterday refers to two separate versions of Windows --Windows 10 and Windows Sun Valley. You can see this in the screenshot below. Shortly afterwards, the reference to "Windows Sun Valley" was removed, suggesting its inclusion was a mistake. Now, it could be that Microsoft didn’t mean to leak the name, which is why it was removed, or it could be that’s just what the new version is called internally, and it won’t be the official title. We won't have too long to find out for sure as the Windows announcement event is now just over two weeks away. What do you think the new OS will be called? Windows 11, Windows Sun Valley, or something else entirely different? Share your thoughts in the comments below. ...

That $1,700 Alibaba electric Jeep? Someone bought it, and here’s what showed up



If you haven’t already had the pleasure of discovering it, I write a fun column called the Awesomely Weird Alibaba Electric Vehicle of the Week. Each week I go spelunking into the caverns of the Alibaba electric vehicle catalog and find something awesome, weird, and usually surprisingly low-cost to share with the world. I’ve wanted to purchase a lot of these myself, and I even did pull the trigger on an electric pickup truck recently. But it turns out that I’m not the only one who has been bitten by the weird Alibaba EV bug – as an Electrek reader shared with us his experience purchasing the $1,700 electric mini-Jeep I found earlier this year. This isn’t some electric Powerwheels toy – it can fit a couple of adults shoulder to shoulder. It’s more closely comparable to a golf cart in size and power, yet reaches a decent speed of 25 mph (40 km/h). It’s also much cheaper than golf carts, which cost around $7,000 in the US. Amazingly, this mini-Jeep is quite affordably priced at a mere $1,280. But based on my conversations earlier this year with the Chinese factory, the final price shipped to a US port seemed to put it closer to $1,700. That’s actually pretty close to what Electrek reader Kyle Day found when he set out to order his own electric Jeep. He originally told me several months ago that he planned to buy one and have it sent to the US. I offered him my customs broker’s contact info (I have a problem and it’s called “buying too much weird stuff from overseas”) and I asked him to keep me updated about how the process went. The whole exercise was fairly new to Kyle, but ultimately he made it through the purchase, importation, customs clearance, and delivery steps to receive his very own electric mini Jeep. But the adventure wasn’t over there – because it turns out that getting the Jeep assembled was a bit more of a task than any of us had expected. Read on for my interview with Kyle and to live out his experience vicariously. And also be sure to check out his advice at the end for anyone planning to buy their own electric vehicle from Alibaba. Micah: So what made you decide to pull the trigger on buying this electric mini Jeep? Did you have any specific plans for it? Kyle: I have never made a purchase on Alibaba before, but I’m a reasonably experienced online purchaser. I’m also a regular reader of Electrek and enjoy the “Weird Alibaba EV of the Week” features. About three months ago I saw your feature of the mini electric Jeep, and we were actually camping as a family that weekend. I thought the Jeep would be a really fun off-road electric vehicle for my young kids to enjoy while we’re camping – perfect for little joy rides and exploring in the forest on an overnight campout. ...

Putin laughs off ‘killer’ comments ahead of summit with Biden

Russian President Vladimir Putin laughed off the idea that he could be considered a “killer,” but expressed a willingness to work with President Biden in an interview with NBC News ahead of the two leaders’ summit Wednesday in Geneva. In a clip that NBC News posted before airing the full interview on Monday, Putin described Biden as a “career man” who has “spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics,” making him a very different type of politician than former president Donald Trump. “It is my great hope that, yes, there are some advantages, some disadvantages, but there will not be any impulse-based movements on behalf of the sitting U.S. president,” Putin said. In March, George Stephanopoulos of ABC News asked Biden: “So you know Vladimir Putin. You think he’s a killer? Biden responded: “I do.” In the NBC interview, Putin chuckled when asked about the characterization, then said he is used to facing “attacks from all kinds of angles.” He steered clear of criticizing Biden, saying that “harsh rhetoric” is part of U.S. political culture. When NBC reporter Keir Simmons named specific opponents of Putin’s who have been killed in recent years, the Russian president’s response was somewhat less sanguine. “I don’t want to come across as being rude, but this looks like some kind of indigestion except that it’s verbal indigestion,” he said, before dismissing the deaths as a list of people who “suffered and perished at different points in time for various reasons, at the hands of different individuals.” Biden has said that he wants to use Wednesday’s summit to communicate to Russia “that there are consequences for violating the sovereignty of democracies in the United States and Europe and elsewhere.” Topics expected to be raised at the meeting include cyberattacks on American targets, the Syrian civil war, election interference and Russia’s aggression toward Ukraine.

Internet Reportedly Shut Off as G7 Leaders Squabble With Biden Over China

LONDON—The main aim of President Biden’s European tour this week has simply been to show that the United States “is back!” at the heart of the Western diplomatic consensus. Unfortunately, the world is a little more complicated than that. By Saturday night in England, it was beginning to look like the White House had been a little over-confident in just how far the charms of Biden would take him in persuading other G7 leaders to swallow all of his policy positions. Even though he isn’t Donald Trump. The president tried to cajole his colleagues to sign onto a joint statement calling out China directly for forced labor practices in Xinjiang province where the Muslim Uighur minority has been targeted by Beijing. It was not a roaring success. The White House’s own spin conceded as much in characteristically diplomatic language. “There is a little differentiation, I think I would say, within—within, I think, the spectrum of how hard they would push on some of these issues,” said a senior Biden administration official said in a briefing to reporters. Reports from inside the room went further with claims of a sharp divide between the leaders over whether China should be called out explicitly. “The disagreements, aired during a session that at one point became so sensitive that all internet was shut off to the room, pitted European nations against the United States, Britain and Canada,” according to a CNN report on the meeting. The senior White House official said Biden “really was leading the charge… And I would say Prime Minister [Boris] Johnson was very close behind him.” It remains to be seen if the old Anglo-Saxon alliance—backed up by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau—will succeed in persuading the mainland European contingent and Japan to go along with some kind of statement condemning China in a joint communiqué that will be published on Sunday. These kind of negotiations are often hammered out in advance of the meetings between the leaders, which are usually more of a photo opportunity. President Emmanuel Macron of France did raise the alarm last week, warning Washington that Europe did not follow Biden’s apparent desire to “return to [the logic] of the Cold War” with China cast as the West’s new foe. He insisted that Europe would retain its independence when it came to building a relationship with China, with a policy that is “neither to be vassalized by China nor to be aligned on this subject with the United States of America.” Biden was more successful in winning support for the idea of a new, green version of China’s “New Silk Road.” The Build Back Better World initiative is designed to offer developing nations an alternative source of funding and loans for infrastructure projects, which is currently being offered by China. ...

Uber Retracts Statement About Paying for the Health Insurance of its Drivers, Claims the Email was a

Uber claims it mistakenly sent out an email to its drivers and delivery workers in May. The email states that the ride-hailing company is offering to cover some of their health insurance costs. Uber revoked the offer two weeks after the email was sent out. Uber Won't Cover Health Insurance On May 26, an email from Uber with the subject line "It's a great time to get health coverage" was sent to an unspecified number of drivers and delivery workers. When the respective drivers and deliver workers opened the email, they were greeted by an even more alluring proposition, stating that Uber can help cover their healthcare costs. Drivers and couriers for Uber are classified as independent contractors, making them ineligible for any employer-sponsored health insurance plans. For years, many of these workers have campaigned for more protection and benefits, especially during the holidays. Unfortunately, they were faced with opposition from Uber. This is the reason why the email came as a shock when the drivers and workers received it, with it stating that the company offers subsidies ranging from $613.77 to $1,277.54. It will depend on the type of insurance plan they had and the amount of hours they worked each week. That kind of money could be very helpful for drivers, many of whom subsist on poverty-level wages and are struggling to find work amid a drop in demand during the coronavirus pandemic. Uber's Change of Mind As it turns out, nothing has changed. Uber was suppose to send the email to drivers and workers in California only, and not in any other state. The follow-up email stated that the company made a mistake sending the initial email, as the policy only applies to drivers and delivery people in California. Uber apologized for the error. A spokesperson said that the company's support team is working with drivers and delivery workers who got the email by mistake, according to Vox. In 2020, Uber --- together with Lyft, DoorDash, and other gig companies --- poured over $200 million into the campaign to exempt them from a California state law that would require the companies to treat their workers like employees. The companies opposed the law, arguing that it would eliminate driver flexibility, while also increasing consumer prices and wait times. The measure passed in November 2020 with 59% of the vote. Uber and the other ride-hailing companies are required to give healthcare subsided equal to 41% the average premium for each month, as stated under Prop 22. The subsidies should be given to drivers and couriers who average between 15 and 25 hours per week of engaged time. This would then explain the email, but it does not explain why it also ended up in the inboxes of drivers and couriers who do not reside in California. ...

Gboard 10.7 preps support for Android 12’s Material You ‘Dynamic Color’ theming [Gallery]

Android 12 Beta 2 launched yesterday with the wallpaper-based theming announced at Google I/O. We already provided a preview of the upcoming support in Google Messages, and now here’s an early look at the Material You “Dynamic Color” theme in the works for Gboard. About APK Insight: In this “APK Insight” post, we’ve decompiled the latest version of an application that Google uploaded to the Play Store. When we decompile these files (called APKs, in the case of Android apps), we’re able to see various lines of code within that hint at possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever ship these features, and our interpretation of what they are may be imperfect. We’ll try to enable those that are closer to being finished, however, to show you how they’ll look in case that they do ship. With that in mind, read on. Once live, “Dynamic Color” will appear as a Gboard theme in the “Default” section next to System Auto, Default, and Default Dark. The background will always be the lightest hue, while whether “Key borders” are turned on/off plays a role in theming. If they are disabled, there are two other colors, starting with a darker shade for the pill-shaped “?123” key and space bar. The return key is ever so slightly lighter, while the ‘More’ chevron is similarly tinted. When you enable borders, the QWERTY, apostrophe, language switcher, and spacebar keys are white. Caps lock, backspace, comma, period, and return take a slightly lighter shade than ?123. Like with what we enabled in Messages, this is not yet live on Android 12 Beta 2. Google has been testing a handful of Gboard designs for the past few months. The very limited number of people that had the previous major sheet redesign saw that variant with rounded top corners to visually distinguish the keyboard and suggestions strip removed with Gboard 10.7. That said, the Gboard Material You color look that we enabled is very likely what will launch with Android 12 later this year. ...

Mystery malware steals 26M passwords from millions of PCs. Are you affected?

Researchers have discovered yet another massive trove of sensitive data, a dizzying 1.2TB database containing login credentials, browser cookies, autofill data, and payment information extracted by malware that has yet to be identified. In all, researchers from NordLocker said on Wednesday, the database contained 26 million login credentials, 1.1 million unique email addresses, more than 2 billion browser cookies, and 6.6 million files. In some cases, victims stored passwords in text files created with the Notepad application. The stash also included over 1 million images and more than 650,000 Word and .pdf files. Additionally, the malware made a screenshot after it infected the computer and took a picture using the device’s webcam. Stolen data also came from apps for messaging, email, gaming, and file-sharing. The data was extracted between 2018 and 2020 from more than 3 million PCs. A booming market The discovery comes amid an epidemic of security breaches involving ransomware and other types of malware hitting large companies. In some cases, including the May ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline, hackers first gained access using compromised accounts. Many such credentials are available for sale online. Alon Gal, co-founder and CTO of security firm Hudson Rock, said that such data is often first collected by stealer malware installed by an attacker attempting to steal cryptocurrency or commit a similar type of crime. The attacker “will likely then try to steal cryptocurrencies, and once he is done with the information, he will sell to groups whose expertise is ransomware, data breaches, and corporate espionage,” Gal told me. “These stealers are capturing browser passwords, cookies, files, and much more and sending it to the [command and control server] of the attacker.” NordLocker researchers said there’s no shortage of sources for attackers to secure such information. “The truth is, anyone can get their hands on custom malware,” the researchers wrote. “It’s cheap, customizable, and can be found all over the web. Dark web ads for these viruses uncover even more truth about this market. For instance, anyone can get their own custom malware and even lessons on how to use the stolen data for as little as $100. And custom does mean custom—advertisers promise that they can build a virus to attack virtually any app the buyer needs.” NordLocker hasn’t been able to identify the malware used in this case. Gal said that from 2018 to 2019, widely used malware included Azorult and, more recently, an info stealer known as Raccoon. Once infected, a PC will regularly send pilfered data to a command and control server operated by the attacker. ...

Apple may have accidentally confirmed the existence of an M1X MacBook Pro

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote came and went this year without a new MacBook Pro — but it looks like that wasn’t the original intent! Intriguingly, Apple quietly included the phrases “M1X MacBook Pro” and “M1X” as tags on its YouTube video of the live keynote, as spotted by Max Balzer (via 9to5Mac). Not only does that sound like tacit confirmation of at least one new Arm-powered MacBook Pro, it also corroborates the rumors that it’ll include a new M1 chip, and that Apple will likely market it as an enhanced “X” variant, like it used to do with its high-end iPads, rather than going straight to M2. (Or, as some are pointing out, it could mean that someone on the social media team decided to try for an SEO boost and made it up.) Three weeks ago, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that we’d see redesigned 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros “as early as this summer,” ones that would bring back the SD card slot, HDMI port, and some form of the beloved trip-friendly MagSafe charging connector; offer twice as many high-performance CPU and GPU cores; and support up to 64GB of RAM. I really thought announcing them at WWDC would be the perfect way to distract from recent developer turmoil — you know, by announcing a MacBook Pro that’s actually for pros? Perhaps that was the original idea, but we got an absolutely jam-packed keynote filled with rapid-fire software announcements instead. Check out our supercut below for the condensed video version, or read our list of the 15 biggest WWDC 2021 announcements if you only want the highlights.

Sony Unveils $9,000 Airpeak S1 Drone That Could Reach Top Speed of 55.9 Miles Per Hour in 3.5 Second



Sony has first teased its Airpeak S1 drone during the CES 2021. This week, the video game publisher divulged its potential features as well as its whopping price of $9,000 for the high-spec camera setup which makes it market-ready for the competitive drone industry. Sony Airpeak S1 Drone Never-Before-Seen Features According to The Verge's report on Wednesday, June 9, the Airpeak S1 sports Gremsy T3 gimbal's specialized version which perfectly suits the body of Sony's professional drone e. Moreover, it also boasts a mirrorless set of cameras such as the FX3, A7S Mark III, and the 8K-Alpha 1. For its flight time, the Airpeak could manage to fly for around 12 minutes in duration. Without carrying any load, it could glide for up to 22 minutes. Although the camera is connected to the drone, the user needs to slot a separate battery for the optical equipment. Furthermore, photographers could truly have the best shots amid several difficulties like wind or rain since it is guaranteed to be stable, durable, and resistant to wind. Sony said that its capability to stay afloat could go for up to 44.7 miles per hour which is twice the ability of what DJI Inspire can do at 20 miles per hour. In addition to its resistance, it has also an infrared rangefinder which aids the drone to see the obstacles along its way. It features a full-packed set of stereo cameras, as well. For the drone test, the gaming company stated that it has chosen the Japanese space agency (JAXA) to run the flight trials of the new machine. Sony Airpeak S1 Drone Can Hit Unbelievable Speed in 3.5 Seconds Gizmodo Australia noted in its report this new drone could reach an extreme speed at 55.9 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds. Given its huge price that won't be consumer-friendly to others, it impeccably targets those filmmakers who are looking for the best aerial shots in their film-shooting scenes. However, Sony has not yet mentioned its specific speed if the camera is included during the flight. Despite that, it's still a top-tier creation of the company which is not known to manufacture a man-made aerial aircraft. If you want to compare the Airpeak S1 drone with the $7,000 Matrice 600 Pro of DJIs, the latter could only attain a 40 mph top-speed with a payload of 13 pounds. Its battery is reportedly to last for up to 32 minutes in the air. To navigate it, you can simply use its controller or the Airpeak Flight app made by Sony. Currently, the software is only exclusive for iOS/iPadOS users. The limit for the controller is two persons if you select the dual-operator mode. It is expected that Sony will ship the drone during the fall. The video game firm also clarified that its product is produced in Japan amid speculations that the majority of drones are made in China Related Article: Sony Unveils Prototype Drone: Watch What The AS-DTO1-E And AS-MCO1-P Can Do [Video]

In 2021's International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR), a team of skilled researchers hailing from the University of Maryland showcased an attack technique that could slow down deep learning models optimized to perform fast and sensitive operations. The attack is entitled "DeepSloth." It aims to target adaptive and deep neural networks -- a wide variety of deep learning architectures, specifically made to cut down computations, leading to a faster processing function. The Risk of Rushing Artificial Intelligence Systems The world has seen an increasing interest in deep learning and machine learning security over the last few years. With this comes multiple papers, techniques, and innovations related to hacking and defending extensive types of neural networks. But what makes DeepSloth all the more interesting? According to The Next Web, the researchers responsible for DeepSloth got to present an error within the technique they created two years before the presentation in 2019. What DeepSloth seems to entail is that the machine learning community discovers multiple accidental errors from their previous and ongoing works regularly. However, multiple researchers, developers, and retail companies compete against one another by racing to offer deep learning in numerous PC and mobile applications. The rush that goes into their versions of Artificial Intelligence systems can cause critical risks in the future. For example, DeepSloth was only found recently after two years of creation. This problem shows that rushed Artificial Intelligence systems could have further issues that manufacturers and researchers fail to notice at the time of production. If numerous applications receive faulty AI systems, more and more companies and users will find themselves puzzled because of the challenges that they will face. Even so, irreparable damages might also take place, such as data leakages and identity exposure. Harmful Effects of Artificial Intelligence Tudor Dumitras, a cybersecurity expert and a member of Maryland Cybersecurity Center, stated in The Next Web that he thought of the harmful ways that deep-shallow networks might be exploited. Along with Yigitan Kaya, a Ph.D. student from the University of Maryland, and his colleagues, he started to wonder if any adversary could lead the system into a state of overthinking. To sum it up, they wanted to know if the energy savings along with the latency that they got from earlier exit models such as SDN are durable enough against attacks. They named it the "DeepSloth Attack." Similar to adversarial attacks, DeepSloth primarily relies on carefully made input that could manipulate a machine learning system's behavior. But unlike other attacks that force a target model to provide incorrect predictions, DeepSloth is focused on terrorizing computations. ...

What to Expect at WWDC 2021: iOS 15, macOS 12, watchOS 8, New MacBook Pro?



Apple's 32nd annual Worldwide Developers Conference will continue to be held in a digital-only capacity much like the 2020 WWDC event, which means it's free for all developers worldwide to attend. Apple is holding a virtual keynote that will take place on Monday, June 7, with the event set to give us our first look at new operating system updates. We don't know a lot about this year's event, but everything that we're expecting to see based on rumors has been highlighted below. New MacBook Pro? Apple is working on new 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro models that could perhaps see a launch at WWDC. The rumor comes from leaker Jon Prosser, who has something of a mixed track record when it comes to predicting Apple's plans. Other more reliable sources have pointed more broadly to a launch in the second half of the year and haven't pinpointed June as a specific launch month for the new machines. Analysts from Wedbush and Morgan Stanley have also said that new Apple silicon Macs could debut at WWDC, but a recent DigiTimes report said that redesigned MacBook Pro models won't be shipping to customers until late 2021, so it's unclear what's going to happen. Apple has in the past launched new hardware at WWDC, but since 2017, WWDC events have focused on software. MacRumors recently discovered a database listing for a battery that could be used in the next-generation MacBook Pro, but that also doesn't offer a clear picture on a release timeline. The new MacBook Pro models will feature the most radical redesign to the MacBook Pro lineup since 2016. Apple is reintroducing the MagSafe port, and the new MacBook Pro models will include an HDMI port and an SD Card reader in addition to a trio of Thunderbolt/USB-C ports. There will be no Touch Bar, with Apple instead returning to a traditional function row of keys, and there will also be a redesigned thermal system to accommodate the upgraded Apple silicon chips that the machines are expected to include. Additional color options are also a possibility. A complete overview of all the rumors we've heard about new MacBook Pro models so far can be found in our 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro guide. Apple Silicon Updates Even if we don't end up getting new MacBook Pro models at WWDC, we could possibly hear about the next-generation Apple silicon chips that are in the works. Apple is working on 10-core Apple silicon chips for the MacBook Pro models, with the chips expected to include eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores, along with 16 or 32-core GPU options and support for up to 64GB RAM. Higher-end chips are coming too. For a future Mac Pro, Apple is working on Apple silicon chip options with 20 or 40 computing cores, made up of 16 or 32 high-performance cores and four or eight high-efficiency cores. ...
