Apple wants to get rid of Intel. By 2020, the company from Cupertino wants to use its own chips in its Mac computers. Not only does this fit into the strategy of Apple’s desired independence it should also ensure that Apple products can work even better together. Macs are the only devices that Apple makes that do not have their own chips.
What’s the advantage?
The latter are of course still working on better chips and if Apple can not deliver at least the same power from its own factory, users will not be happy with the fact that Macs suddenly do not have any compatibility anymore with the PC architecture. Then, for example, Bootcamp would also disappear, because Windows is not running on Apple’s A chips.
This far-reaching integration of MacOS and iOS should be the reason for making the switch, but what the benefits of it are must be apparent. It could well be that if Apple can make the chips for Macs themselves, there are opportunities that are very interesting and that no other generic chipmaker can offer. What that is? We will hear that by 2020.
