As per reports, Apple might switch to ARM-based processors as early as the next year. The change might reflect across the entire lineup and should come into effect by 2020, according to officials from Intel.

THE ADVANTAGE

Apple’s Mac computers are similar to Windows when it comes to the GPU and CPU. This switch will enable Apple to self-manufacture CPUs, without depending on Intel. The ARM SOCs are used in the iPhone and the iPad as well as the android market.

The end goal, as experts say, is to make the app store common across all platforms, enabling a universal eco-system. This concept is currently used by Microsoft under the Windows Universal Platform. The project is called “Marzipan”
