Intel probably expects Apple to start Mac's move to ARM next year

There have been several reports that Apple will switch away from Intel processors for the Mac series in favor of their own ARM chips as soon as 2020. Axios today reports that several developers and Intel officials also expect the move as early as next year. Although the company has not yet said so publicly, developers and Intel officials have privately told Axios that they expect such a move as soon as next year. A software site we reported yesterday on the news that Apple could release its marzipan-esque conversion of iPhone to Mac apps in 2020. The company is said to plan to use its marzipan efforts to allow developers to create a single app that can theoretically work with all Apple hardware, including iPhone and Mac sometime in 2021 . The Marzipan project originally debuted back in June 2018 under Apple's WWDC keynote. While the company doesn't officially call it, Apple has released four new applications on Mac based on its iOS counterparts: Voice Memos, News, Home, and Warehouse. On the program side, this could be a smooth transition since Apple could make an Intel and an ARM-based version of MacOS. However, the hardware may prove to be a bit more difficult as Apple has to move its hardware to ARM-based chips, which may take a few years. The company will also need to make future versions of MacOS compatible with Intel chips because there will be many users still using older Macs. This Axios report that points…

The Marzipan project originally debuted back in June 2018 under Apple’s WWDC keynote. While the company doesn’t officially call it, Apple has released four new applications on Mac based on its iOS counterparts: Voice Memos, News, Home, and Warehouse.

On the program side, this could be a smooth transition since Apple could make an Intel and an ARM-based version of MacOS. However, the hardware may prove to be a bit more difficult as Apple has to move its hardware to ARM-based chips, which may take a few years. The company will also need to make future versions of MacOS compatible with Intel chips because there will be many users still using older Macs.

This Axios report that points Macs to the market with in-house chips as soon as next year erases what we previously heard from both Bloomberg and Ming-Chi Kuo.
