Apple has officially announced that it is developing its own micro processors to run on Mac operating systems. Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering, demoed the fully functioning features of the upcoming MacOS version named “Big Sur”. It is running flawlessly on the newly developed powerful chip that is going to replace the use of intel CPUs in their future devices. Although, there were many speculations that Apple might be moving completely to ARM based macs this year, but that does not seem to be the case as of now. They will be transitioning slowly to ARM based chips and might take two years for the migration. This is considered a huge change from Apple with the decision of moving away from Intel processors. This will allow the use of native macOS apps alongside the iOS ones flawlessly.
Its biggest rival, Microsoft, has already been working on migrating their Office Apps to the Macs that will be powered by this new chip.
This new chip is expected to improve the performance of the macs by an exceedingly higher degree and consume less power. Developers would easily be able to port their applications to the new silicon within few days. Its biggest rival, Microsoft, has already been working on migrating their Office Apps to the Macs that will be powered by this new chip. Craig Federighi showed the working demo of MS-Word and Excel while Adobe photoshop amazed us with a 5 Gigabyte file smoothly edited on the new chip without any performance issues.
The new micro possessor developed by Apple will be powering future apple devices like macbooks, imacs and mac pros. Apple’s transition to its own developed chips is a good news for apple users. Since, the hardware and software optimization will come in a form of closely knit products, just like iPhones and iPads, yielding a smooth user experience built on top of impeccably functional workflow.
