For years, Apple has been rumored to be working on a new ARM-based architecture for its Macs. This radical change would move the company away from Intel and onto its own silicon. There are still many unknowns, but Apple spent a significant portion of WWDC 2020 talking about its new ARM-platform and how it will transform its mac lineup. The first ARM-based Macs will debut later this year. Apple’s next macOS, Big Sur, is already compatible with this new hardware, and the company is providing developers with the tools they need to convert their apps over to the ARM platform.
