WWDC 2020: Apple to announce move to ARM-powered Macs

A report tells us Apple intends announcing a move to use its own ARM-developed chips inside Macs starting next year, this will be a pillar announcement at WWDC 2020, where Apple will share more information concerning its long speculated plan to sell Macs powered by its own ARM-based A-series processors.

The transition has already begun

Think about it and the transition really began when Apple migrated to OS X. That operating system’s Unix core is what makes it more possible to run the system on different processor platforms. Apple proved this with the iPhone and iPad, both of which run variants of the same OS.

A move to run Macs on this OS has been prevented by software support and processor power.

We now have tens of millions of iOS/iPad apps, Catalyst makes it much easier to plot Universal apps, and Apple’s processors are among the fastest in the world.

At the same time, as I’ve noted before, the company will still be required to show its customers what tangible benefits they will receive from the move. One way to do so will be to extent the Mac features Catalyst brings iOS devices, and the iOS talents it brings to the Mac.

Bloomberg now tells us Apple will announce the move at WWDC, when it will try to motivate developers to support this step.
