Bloomberg said in January that Apple is developing two versions of the new Mac Pro, one that is a direct successor to the Mac Pro 2019 and another that offers a smaller form factor that is about half the size. Apple is working to transition its entire line from Mac to Apple Silicon and the smallest will have it. But there will be a version with Intel.
