What happens when you put iPhone chips in Macs?
Ten years after the first Apple-designed chip, the A4 System on a Chip, debuted in the iPad and the iPhone 4, Apple introduced its M1 SoC for personal computers. Launched in November 2020, the ARM-based processor uses the same basic architecture as the A-series chips and powers a range of Apple PCs including the MacBook Air, Mac mini, MacBook Pro, and iMac. Now, with the launch of Apple’s 2021 MacBook Pro models, the hugely praised M1 chip has now been joined by the M1 Pro and M1 Max.
