Apple’s devices are known for being secure. And the Cupertino-based tech giant keeps on improving the security on its device every year. Last year, Apple took a major step to make Macs even more secure by introducing a process called “Notarization.” In this process, developers have to submit their apps to Apple where it checks the app for malicious content and security issues. If the app passes the test, a security feature on Mac dubbed Gatekeeper allows the app to run. However, it has now come to light that Apple had accidentally allowed malware to run on Macs.
Back at WWDC 2020, Apple announced its plans to switch to its own custom Arm-based Apple Silicon chips inside its Macs. The company expects to complete the transition within two years. This led many people to wonder if Apple will drop support for Intel Macs in the foreseeable future. If you are in the market for a new Mac and are wondering if you should buy an Intel-based Mac or wait for Apple Silicon Macs, read below.
It was long been rumored that Apple will eventually shift from Intel processors to its own chipsets. The move was confirmed last month when the company announced its plans to move Macs to its own ARM-based Apple Silicon. Now, the company has suggested that it won’t sell its in-house processors to other brands.
Apple introduced Touch ID with the iPhone 5s in 2013, and then the feature made it to the MacBook lineup with the MacBook Pro in 2016.
