Apple Macs are moving away from Intel and to Apple Silicon. To understand what that means for Mac performance, it’s helpful to look back at past A-series chips and compare them to Intel CPUs.
Since the very first iPhone, Apple has been using ARM-based processors in its mobile devices. The company launched its first true A-series chip with the iPhone 4, which came equipped with the Apple A4 chip. Since then, Apple’s proprietary chips have been breaking ground and stretching the limits of what is possible from ARM-derived processors in a mobile package.
