On Monday Apple will hold its annual conference for software developers, rolling out new features in its operating systems for iPhones and iPads and which is most possibly a signal of a split from Intel after almost 15-year supplying Mac computer processors to Apple.
WWDC Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference comes as paid services and is sold through the App Store have become central to the Cupertino, California, company’s revenue growth as consumers have slowed the growth of iPhone upgrades. The US giant Apple takes around 15 percent to 30 percent of sales developers to make through the App Store, which is the only way to distribute the software onto their mobile devices.
Developers still try to drift towards Apple’s platform because it is much more profitable and a money-making platform.
The user base of Apple is such that it wills to spend money on paid apps. The WWDC annual developer conference is being held online such as on Youtube any on many other platforms too, this year for the first time because of this novel coronavirus, is where Apple often announces access to new hardware capabilities, such as special tools for artificial intelligence and augmented reality.
This year Apple could announce a split with Intel, Since 2006 Intel has supplied processors for Apple’s Mac computers. On Monday Apple is most probably to announce a self-designed processor. The company, which already uses its own processor designs in iPhones in iPads, could announce one laptop model and one desktop model that will use the new chips fo the mac computers too.
An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the company’s future plans or products. If Apple does this it will most probably build on a tool which was introduced last year called Catalyst, which aims easier for developers to move their apps from Apple’s mobile operating systems to Mac computers.
