At Apple’s 2020 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Tim Cook delivered the headline that we long anticipated – Macs will transition away from Intel’s x86 processors and adopt Apple’s own proprietary silicon. Why not? After all, Apple has been designing industry-leading processors for its iPhone and Apple Watch which have also powered the iPad, iPod and Apple TV. The writing was on the wall that Apple would bring the Mac into the Apple silicon fold.
WWDC 2018 was held yesterday, and the Apple team announced a wide range of new features across the portfolio of Apple platforms: Apple TV, iOS, MacOS and WatchOS as they always do each year. It’s always a bit of a challenge to determine which of these features, if any, is going to change the game. After all, it is Apple. We expect innovation, and the bar is set very high for this icon of “disruption.”
