Apple Turns to its Own Mac Processor

Apple Turns to its Own Mac Processor

Apple kicked-off its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, and this year its completely online. The first day was filled with announcements on their platforms and products. The biggest news is that the Cupertino based company will turn to its own chip design for Mac.

Tech giant decided it will use its own chips for Mac PCs. Company executives stated the move will maximise performance without compromising battery life, boost security protection, offer better graphics and improve machine learning. Apple used Intel chips for Mac since 2005. While the company didn’t provide specifications for its forthcoming silicon, Apple CEO Tim Cook said it will be a game changer. He added it expects to ship the first Macs with Apple silicon later this year, with the full transition expected to take two years.

In a preview of its forthcoming iOS 14 platform, Apple detailed widgets for the home screen; an App Library; App Clips to make key functions more accessible; picture-in-picture video capabilities; upgrades to Messages; expanded privacy controls, and a tool which allows an iPhone or Apple Watch to be used as a digital car key. Company representatives also unveiled new versions of software for all their devices.
