We all know that Apple will be replacing Intel processors in their Mac lineup with their in-house designed ARM processors in the future. According to a latest report by Axios, developers and Intel officials have privately confirmed that this transition will start as early as next year. Next year, you can expect Apple to release at least one ARM-based MacBook that can run iOS apps natively. This is a bad news for Intel’s client computing business which is already slowing down year over year. However, this is a great news for consumers as they can expect the ARM-based MacBooks to offer incredible performance and power is a light-weight package.

Early this week, Bloomberg reported some new details about Apple’s new project code-named Marzipan. With this project, Apple’s aim is to release this unified app platform by 2021 which will allow developers to write their apps once and run them on iPhone, iPad and Mac. Apple will release a new toolkit later this year that will allow developers to port their iPad apps to Mac. Next year, Apple will add support for porting iPhone apps to Mac. In 2021, developers can create a single binary and submit it to both App Store and Mac App Store.
