So, As on June 22nd this year apple has announced that they are most likely gonna switch to their “very own ARM-Based Mac’s” so is ‘Intel-Based Mac Worth Today’ ?
Intel-Based Mac or IBM’s have been apples priorities for years until this year where they will be manufacturing their own chipset with which apples new upcoming line-up will focus on being more powerful with less power usage notebooks the have also claimed that their first ARM notebook will be available publicly later this year.
So, does that may IBM’s not worth buying , Actually Yes , But also No , As Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said ‘The Expected Transition Period is EXPECTED 2 Years’ which can also be said that the transition period is not quite sure and this statement proves that their are 2 long Years for all the Macs to turn into ARM. Also, Developers will need some time to make all the apps and software available for the new ARM Macs as not all Third Party Softwares and applications will be available on day-one and mostly many developers will take many months or even years to make their apps available for both the IBM’s and ARM’s.
Apple also Added that the IBM’s will receive MacOS updates for to come. of course ABM will not only have less power consumption but also support iOS And iPadOS apps directly out of the Box.
But Unfortunately ARM Mac’s Won't Support Boot Camps , Utility that's used by 60% of mac users for everyday tasks mainly for Windows Available Programs and gaming.
Apple introduced ‘Rosetta 2’ for translating codes for ARM macs from intel macs that will most likely make it easier for developers to make an app available for ARM Mac But, Apps translated will Rosetta 2 were found to be slower and less efficient compared to manual translation. Apple Also announced that they have apple intel macs in the line-up that they were excited about.
Apple During the whole ‘WWDC’ used a Mac Powered with iPads A12X Processor that is a very good example of apple new ARM Chips Capabilities
Apple’s New Line-up will be more capable but, will also be an headache for many developers and users and if you are an power user than its better for you to wait until all your favourite apps including Third-Party Plugins are Available for the new upcoming Macs , Thats Probably Gonna Take a few years , and even if you buy a Mac Today it is gonna receive updates for 6–7 Years from Now and when your Ready you can probably sell you intel Mac to someone who wants to take advantage of the Dual Boot Feature.
Performance is time, and time is money, after all.
