The iPhone manufacturer is now developing the microprocessors for Macs itself. The first three computer models are now coming onto the market. A test.
For a long time, Apple was a flagship customer for Intel. But the connection had been strained for a long time because the computer manufacturer was no longer satisfied with the development of Intel chips. Exactly 15 years after switching from the Power PC platform to Intel, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the next U-turn away from Intel in June of this year. For years Apple has been developing processors for iPhones and iPads itself. They are among the most powerful in the field of mobile devices. Two weeks ago, Apple introduced the M1, its first chip for laptops and desktops, which will initially run in three new Macs.
