Apple To Sell Macs Built With Its Own Processor In 2021


In its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), held virtually on June 22, Apple announced new features rolling out for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac. One of the key highlights of the conference was the announcement of a major change to Apple’s Mac Computers in 14 years. Earlier in this year, Apple’s effort to move away from Intel was reported by Bloomberg. Apple made the hardware transition official on Monday by announcing a shift from Intel processors to its custom-designed chips for future Mac computers which will be based on ARM-powered silicons that are used in smartphones and tablets, including iPhone and iPad.

Apple to Acquire ARM

According to a London Newspaper, Apple is going to acquire ARM. Apple is reportedly in talks with the leading company in Microprocessor Intellectual property who has supplied processors to Apple for its devices and even for the iPad.

Apple-ARM deal could mean big for the industry. ARM does not only deal with Apple but also is a supplier of microprocessors to other huge tech giants as well. The deal is rumored to be signed at 40 Billion US Dollars. Antitrust would definitely come in between and obstruct the deal from taking place.

If the deal takes place, Apple’s competitors would be left far behind because ARM even supplies chips to Sony, Microsoft, Dell and HP. This means that Apple’s competitors would have to find alternatives which would be slow and buggier.

Even this acquisition adds up to the Apple-Google fight, Apple earlier got P.A Semi which led to the development of the A4 Chip which Apple uses for the iPad. During the development some key members left the company and started a new company known as “Agnilux”. Agnilux employees include a lot of former Apple and P.A Semi members. The company (Agnilux) was acquired by Google just three days back and if this Apple-ARM deal comes true, the complete tech industry would be moved.

Through this anticipated acquisition, Apple will climb yet more higher on the ladder of performance recognition spelt out by TheAppleGoogle.
