Why Apple Is Switching INTEL To ARM Chipset ?

Apple recently announced that they are entirely switching there line up Mac computers away from the Intel processors now all mac's currently switching to

Apple’s own custom ARM chipset

Many people wondering this going to happens

And that’s exactly what I’m going to explain. T

his is Shivam with TechPro Shivam, Alright so why is Apple ditching Intel processors and moving to their own custom chipsets. Well, there are quite a few reasons that I’ll cover, but probably the most important is that Apple hates being at the mercy of other companies. They like the freedom of being as independent as possible. this is why Apple has created their own OS with the original Macintosh

When creating the iPhone, they didn’t want to be beholden to mobile phone carriers, which is why they only worked with Motorola, who promised to give Apple full control over the iPhone’s hardware and software. Something that was unprecedented at the time. And even then, that wasn’t good enough. Because initially the iPhone ran on Samsung’sARM chipset, which wasn’t fully optimised with the iPhone’s hardware or operating system, and therefore held back the device’s potential when it came to performance and battery life. 

So in order to create a smartphone that could live up to its fullest potential, Apple established their own in-house silicon design team, incharge of creating a custom chipset specifically tailored for the iPhone. 

And the company’s effort paid off in 2010 when they introduced the iPhone 4, featuring Apple’s first custom-made A4 chipset.

guess you never wonder why iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches are updated every time, while MacBooks doesn't have proper schedule ? That’s because Apple need wait until Intel to release their new generation of processors. 
the iPad Pro has Apple’s A12Z chip, which is faster than 92 % of PC notebooks out there on the market today. even though Apple yet to announce there a newer custom-made chip for the Mac line up, we can assume that performance will be better that iPad Pro which is already powerful

Now although macOS is an advanced operating system, it does require regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly. And for that, I use CleanMyMacX. It has a really convenient feature called Smart Scan that examines your entire system for user cache and system log files that are no longer needed. It also runs a malware check so you can identify and remove any malicious software that could be slowing down your computer or causing unusual behavior. 

Now while we’re on the topic of performance, it’s also important to understand that by using their own chipset, Apple can achieve better processing and graphics performance, while actually lowering power consumption. thats why iPads easily reach their advertised10-hour battery life, while MacBooks rarely do. In fact, if you read the fine print, Apple says you’ll only achieve 10 hours of battery life on your MacBook Pro if all you’re doing is browsing the web with the screen brightness set at seventy-five percent. But I think most MacBook Pro users are doing more intense tasks like photo or video editing, which burns through the battery much quicker. But even if you’re doing similar tasks on an iPad Pro, you’ll notice that battery life isn’t effected nearly as much. And it’s because of Apple’s custom chipset designed to optimise performance without sacrificing battery life. 

Apple’s own chipset boos up design of their Macs. id there is no thermal issues, Apple should have been MacBook with smaller fans. we could see a reducing in the MacBooks battery size, and still providing 10 hours of uses. 

so with a new ARM MacBook can be fan-less design with a smaller battery. Which could be thinner, lighter, something they’ve been looking to make possible for years. 

now the real deal switching  ARM is app compatibility. in 2010 iPad shared the iPhone’s A4 chipset. which was running with same app compatibility like iphone. 

And now, Apple wants the Mac to enjoy that same advantage. We already received a hint of Apple’s interest in creating universal apps last year with the release of macOS Catalina. It included a feature called Mac Catalyst which made it much easier for developers to bring their iPad apps over to the Mac. but convert there computer to ARM chipsets, developers need not to do anything. iPad and iPhone app going to run very smoothly and seamlessly on mac. 

Now this transition won’t happen overnight,Apple said it’ll take two years to get all of their Macs running on their own custom chipsets, but it may happen even sooner. Because this isn’t the first time Apple has switched from one chip to another. 

Back in 2005 Steve Jobs announced the transition from PowerPC to Intel processors, and estimated every Mac would be switched over in about eighteen months. But it actually happened much quicker than that, taking Apple only ten months to transition their entire Mac lineup to Intel. So while something similar may play out this time around, the switch from Intel to ARM is a bit more complicated and likely to take more time.
