Apple aims to sell Macs with its own chips starting in 2021

SAN FRANCISO: Apple Inc is planning to start selling Mac computers with its own main processors by next year, relying on designs that helped popularise the iPhone and iPad, according to people familiar with the matter. The company is working on three of its own Mac processors, known as systems-on-a-chip, based on the A14 processor in the next iPhone. The first of these will be much faster than the processors in the iPhone and iPad, the people said Apple is preparing to release at least one Mac with its own chip next year, according to the people.

But the initiative to develop multiple chips, codenamed Kalamata, suggests the company will transition more of its Mac lineup away from current supplier Intel Corp. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, Apple’s partner for iPhone and iPad processors, will build the new Mac chips, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private product plans.
