PRO ✅ ARM Could Be More Secure
Apple’s A-series chips are inherently more secure than Intel’s processors. That much is evident when you consider all of the massive security vulnerabilities that Intel’s hardware has suffered in the past couple of years. From Spectre and Meltdown to ZombieLoad, there’s a lot wrong with Intel chips from a security standpoint.
Compare that to the A-series chip. Apple’s iPhones and iPads are notoriously hard to break into. In addition to the encryption and security features that Apple bakes into its products, there’s no doubt that the fact that the A-series chips are ARM plays a part in their security, too. In other words, an ARM Mac could be a lot harder to exploit.
