Axios is out with a new report today and cited multiple sources suggests Apple will transition to custom ARM-based chips next year, with even Intel officials are expecting Apple begin to use the ARM-based chips in 2020, as an effort to make Macs, iPhones, and iPads able to run the universal apps.


The transition already started, as Apple has released four iOS apps for the Mac: Voice Memos, News, Home, and Stocks. A report from Bloomberg yesterday suggested developers will soon be able to create a single app that can run on iPhones, iPads, and Macs simultaneously, while also increasing the number of macOS apps available on the Mac App Store.

Hardware wise, Apple has a series of thriving experiences on the iPhone/iPad, it is already the most powerful chip in the field of the smartphone, in fact, at the October event last year, the company touted out that A12X Bionic chip outperforms 92% of processors on the market. Even though it would take a few years before it becomes reality, they at least had some knowledge on it.

On the software side, this could be a smooth transition because Apple can develop both the Intel version and the ARM version of macOS. However, the company also needs to make future versions of macOS compatible with Intel chips, as many users will still use older Macs.
