Mark this date: 23 June 2020. In one of four seismic shifts in its colourful history, Apple announced at Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC20) that it will transition the Mac to its own ARM-based silicon. The first Mac with Apple silicon is expected to ship out by end of the year and Apple has quoted a two-year timeline for a full transition. Apple still has new Intel-based Macs in development.
For the first time in its 31-year history, Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June will take on an entirely new format. In wake of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the full WWDC programme including the keynote and sessions will be delivered exclusively online, accessible to its entire developer community across the world.
