Mark Gurman, a reputable analyst specializing in Apple products, says that those from Cupertino will announce the transition to their ARM processors at WWDC 2020. That Apple plans to say goodbye to Intel to use its apple ARM processor on Mac and MacBook is something we’ve been hearing about since last year. This decision would be due to the decrease in the annual performance of Intel chips.
The Axios website already announced these possible plans in February 2019. In February of this year, Ming-Chi Kuo supported this information. Point out that the first Apple computer with its new apple arm processor(Chips) will hit the market in the first half of 2021. Now, those with the bitten apple may be about to announce this transition. This is stated in the report that Gurman has published in Bloomberg. Where he points out that sources familiar with Apple’s plans assure him that the corporation will announce the move from Intel to ARM at the World Developers Conference WWDC 2020.
According to the analyst, the initiative receives the internal name of Kalamata. And it will be made official in order to give external developers time to prepare.
Since they are processors with different architectures, developers must adapt their applications before Mac and MacBook computers with ARM chips arrive in 2021. New chips will be based on the previous technology used in Apple-designed iPhone and iPad processors. Bloomberg stresses that the computers’ operating system will continue to be macOS.
Apple has not spoken about it at the moment, so we will have to wait for WWDC 2020. This year will be a virtual event held from next June 22. If confirmed, how will this move affect Intel? Apple has about 10% of the PC market, so its sales won’t suffer too much. However, Intel may be hurt if other manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and look for alternatives for performance reasons.
Apple’s WWDC 2020 will be virtual
Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, the celebration of conventional events has had to adapt to new circumstances. And many of them have become an online format to guarantee attendees’ safety. This is the solution that Apple has chosen, and, as announced last March, WWDC 2020 will be virtual. The Cupertino company has confirmed this year’s World Developer Conference date.

WWDC is the conference that Apple has held annually since 1983. Intending to show new versions of its operating systems to developers. In addition to software, the corporation usually presents some hardware products for professionals. For example, last year, it announced the new Mac Pro. The exceptional situation caused by the coronavirus has forced me to adapt to the characteristics of the event, which will have a completely online format this time. The World Apple Developer Conference will be held on June 22 on the Apple Developer application. And the Apple Developer website. Access will be free for all developers.
“WWDC20 will be the largest to date and will bring together with the global developer community, over 23 million. In a new way for a week in June, to learn the future of Apple platforms”. Explains Phil Schiller, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing Apple.
At the conference, we will be able to learn about the future of iOS, macOS, iPad OS, tvOS, and watchOS. And it remains to be seen if the company will keep a hardware product up its sleeve.
