5 Reasons Why Apple's Next Gen 7nm A12 Chip Could Be The Best Feature In The 2018 IPhones

In my opinion, it is inevitable that Apple will seek to transition its Macs over to its own Z-series processors. One big reason is the oft stated fact that Apple likes to “own the core technologies in its devices.” Another reason is power efficiency – performance/watt. In addition, given the excellent performance of the A11, the A12 should be highly competitive with Intel’s consumer CPU offerings. Furthermore, Apple updates its A-series SoCs annually (unlike Intel), thus increasing its ability to evolve the Mac and tailor its capabilities and performance. Cost is also a consideration – Apple would also benefit from the economy of scale provided by its iOS devices

Some people are concerned about the loss of Bootcamp functionality – the ability to natively run Windows on Macs. In my opinion, that concern is overblown. It may have been a selling point back in the mid-2000s when Apple switched from PPC to Intel, but it is not nearly as important a decade later. Also, Apple and its third party developers have shown a talent for OS virtualization environments, which are generally far more convenient for most users than dual booting, anyway.

Intel’s processor development problems and delays are making this decision even easier for Apple. I believe that Apple will released a lower-end Mac (MacBook, Mac mini) by the end of the second quarter of 2019 (next March) based on an A12 SoC.
