Apple plans to replace Intel chips in Macs

Apple plans to replace Intel chips in Macs

Apple attacks the smartphone and smartwatch market with brand new displays they are developing in partnership with TSMC as we speak. The chips, code-named Kalamata are still in the early stages of being developed but are part of a broader push to make all of Apple's devices work together. Apple is working on a new software platform called Marzipan (which may already be released this year), which makes it possible to run apps for the iPhone and iPad on the Macs. The Mac plays a small part in Apple's overall financial picture, with sales of 19.2 million units previous year and accounting for 11 percent of Apple's $229.2 billion in revenue for fiscal 2017. Do you think Apple can do better than Intel? They were down 6.4 percent at $48.75 at 3:30 p.m.in NY. Both the companies have declined to comment. However, Apple has had a change of heart and wants firms to develop dedicated apps for the device instead. The iPhone, for example, doesn't use Qualcomm processors like almost every other smartphone on the planet, using its own A-series of chips, and a customised GPU. Currently, all iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, and Apple TVs use main processors designed by Apple and based on technology from ARM.

Tech giant Apple Inc. on Tuesday is reportedly preparing to make all chips in its Mac computers in-house as soon as 2020, replacing processors by its long-time chipmaker Intel Corp.in the bargain.

Apple would certainly benefit from the proposed move, enabling the company to keep on track with its own schedule rather than abiding by another company's roadmap, while Intel would take quite the hit despite being dominant in the market. There's also a rumor that Apple is pursuing the development of its own modem chips to reduce reliance on Intel and Qualcomm. Major computer manufacturers today like HP, Lenovo, and Asus all rely on Intel processors.

International Olympic Committee president meets with North Korea's Kim Jong Un
He also met the figure skating pair, Ryom Tae-ok and Kim Ju-sik, who had competed in the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

This could prove to be a big blow for Intel as they are the biggest providers for chips for Mac. While Apple is down the list of computer sellers by unit shipments, it's third when measured by revenue past year, highlighting the premium status of its products. However, the Cupertino firm has been dropping hints with regards to its impending decision to become its own manufacturer of parts as far back as past year, when Apple executives revealed that they were eyeing chip-making startups. Also, Intel's business has been shifting more to chips for data centers and away from PCs, Muse noted.

Details regarding this move by Apple was apparently provided to the publication by people familiar with the matter, but no formal announcements have been made by Apple itself.
