ARM-based Macs might be coming as early as next year

Apple has long been trying to be the architect of its own destiny by placing as much of its parts and their production in its own hands. The lesser it depends on sources outside of its control, the less it has to negotiate and compromise. It has already started doing that for iPhones and iPads and is expected to do the same for Macs, moving them Intel's processors to its own custom ARM CPUs. But if you thought that's still a long time coming, even Intel's own developers and officials think it might start as early as next year.

Qualcomm vs Apple suit brings iPhone back to Germany, sans Intel

Qualcomm vs Apple suit brings iPhone back to Germany, sans Intel

In one of several court battles around the world, Qualcomm's win against Apple resulted in some iPhones returning to sale where they'd been banned. This battle was fought in Germany, where the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 were banned from sale temporarily pending the outcome of a court case. The versions that've returned to sale in Germany did so with a change unique to this country: They've created iPhones with only Qualcomm hardware inside where elsewhere in the world they're also using tech from Intel.

Intel foldable phone patent shows how to make it usable

There is no shortage of patents on foldable phones and tablets and this year we’ll finally see some of them come to light. The first iterations are, however, expected to not be the foldable phones of fiction and dreams. Because if it comes to a design that makes that foldable device usable and perfect, then Intel’s 2017 patent probably comes closest to that ideal all in one mobile device.
