Börse – Express ROUNDUP: Apple to replace Intel Chips in Macs due to their own processors


Apple breaks out of the
rut the PC industry and presents its Mac Computer
Intel Processors on Chips of its own
Development. This means that future Apple computers are on the same
technical platform like the iPhones and iPad Tablets running. The
first Macs with the new Chip architecture to the end of the year
come on the market, announced that group chief Executive Tim Cook on Monday.

The group will be able to build better products, promised
Chief Designer Johny Srouji. Large Software vendors such as Microsoft
(Office) or Adobe (Photoshop) worked already
custom variants of their programs, emphasized Software-in-chief
Craig Federighi. Apple reckon that the Transition for two years
will take, said Cook. At the same time, Macs with Intel Chips will
continue to be supported and new devices are
The processors of the semiconductor group’s planned.

A replacement of the Intel semi-conductor with the Chips of Apple in
the Macs has been speculated for a long time. The Group
very performance-developed strong own processors for its
Mobile devices based on the architecture of the chip designer ARM
. In Apple’s notebook and Desktop computers, came
so far, however – as in the PC industry, mostly the usual Chips
Intel with the x86 architecture. The
ensured the compatibility of applications across the platforms

Now Software developers need to adapt their programs, if you
on both Intel – and ARM-based Macs to run. The be
but only a few days of work, assures Apple. In addition, in
the new Mac operating system “Big Sur,” a built-in function, the
for Intel Chips Software intended converts. In addition to the can
Macs also run Apps developed for the iPhone and iPad

ARM processors are generally considered to be more energy-efficient than
x86-based Chips, especially for Laptops and smaller from the
Windows world brought laptops with ARM chip architecture
out, but the Interaction with the Windows operating system
brought compromises.

The Macs have a share of only ten percent of the
PC-market. Thus, the loss of business for Intel is financially
to get over. It could but of a blow to the reputation
Chip giants are, so far, the PC business is in the grip of
had. For Macs, this is the third exchange of the Chip platform
after the Transition from Motorola to IBM’s PowerPC in the early 1990s
Years and to Intel in 2005.

Apple made the announcement at its developers conference WWDC,
this year, due to the Corona-crisis online
takes place. In addition, there were as usual many announcements
to future Software for the devices of the group.

So Apple is giving iPhone users with the new operating system iOS 14
for the first time since the market introduction in 2007, the possibility of their
Start screen with additional features to transform it. Besides
the usual App icons will be there with iOS 14, larger
so-called Widgets can be placed, in which some of the information
some of the applications can be displayed – for example, News,
Weather, or Navigation. On the Google Operating system
Android Widgets already for years to the everyday life of the users.

Another new feature are the “App clip” – the possibility of individual

couple of years in the case of Android, the idea did not, however.

First of all, the new 5 series from BMW it is an iPhone

With the new iOS, Apple also ventured a little more direct competition
Google. The voice assistant Siri to ask to know more than

Translation App. To Start, there are eleven languages, including

Android and iOS, the only two relevant Smartphone systems,
after pulling again and again at the individual functions. So borrowed

The maps App also gets navigation instructions for cyclists –
however, initially, only in a few cities. In addition, routes can
