It’s been a long time since we have heard rumors about how Apple wants to switch from Intel processors to ARM-based chips in Mac. However, according to a recent report from Bloomberg, we may soon witness this change this month. According to the report, Apple is planning to reveal this big announcement at its 2020 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference.
This initiative from Apple is codenamed as project Kalamata and will unveil on June 22 at the WDDC 2020 conference. Also, this will provide time for developers to settle before the company announces its ARM MacBook in the next year. Not only that but, the new ARM chips designed for the Mac will run on the same technology as the iPhones and iPad. Although, Macs will continue to run on macOS, as mentioned in the report.
Well, it’s undeniably a huge step from Apple to switch to its ARM chips instead of Intel processors. By doing so, Apple will have better control over them, resulting in better performance and more optimized Apple software for its laptops. ARM chipsets will also lead to a decent battery life that everyone needs on an Apple device.
For your information, Apple has taken this type of crucial decision only two times. First was in the early 1990s, when Apple switched from Motorola processors to PowerPC and second at the WWDC 2005 when Steve Jobs announced a change from PowerPC to Intel.
However, this process will take some time as the Mac software will have to be optimized for the ARM architectures. The reports also state that Apple is currently working on a 12-core ARM processor that will be built on a 5nm process. So, it will be a delight to see Apple’s ARM chipsets soon. Till then, wait for Apple to reveal some interesting information at its 2020 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference.
