PRO ✅ Apple Could Avoid Delays
One of the main reasons why Apple is likely considering ditching Intel is the chipmaker’s lagging timelines in recent years. Intel has struggled to get certain chips and chip technologies out on time — which has, in turn, impacted Apple’s ability to debut new Macs with the latest and greatest hardware.
Controlling the entire chip supply chain would give Apple an advantage when it comes to on-time delivery of products. When’s the last time you heard an iPhone was being delayed or was outfitted with an older chip because an A-series wasn’t ready? That’s not to say that it couldn’t happen in the future, but Apple would have a lot more control over the process.
