The company is in the early stages of creating its own processors for the MacBook and iMac, which now run on Intel chips, according to unnamed sources speaking to Bloomberg on Monday. The report is quite speculative but states that Apple could start replacing Intel chips with its own hardware as early as 2020. The Cupertino-based company would also be able to more tightly integrate hardware and software.
"While it's possible that Apple may replace Intel in some of its lower-end product lines, we think it will be hard for Apple to completely replace Intel by 2020, especially on its higher-end offerings", said Summit Insights group analyst Kinngai Chan.

Afterward, it was discovered the object was actually a pipe with a knob on it. We need to figure out why", said Williams. They should not train them to kill.
While Intel issued patches for most devices, security experts said the flaws were more hard to deal with because they involved hardware rather than software. Apple-made chips are also present in iPhones, iPads and Apple watches.
Making processors for Apple is responsible for a not insignificant 5% of Intel's annual revenue, so this would not be great news for the chip manufacturer - and the market knows it. Currently, all iPhone, Apple Watch and Apple TV devices use chips designed by Apple and based on technology from Arm Holdings.
Apple has been using Intel chips ever since 2005, when it stopped using chips designed by IBM and Motorola.

His trial is likely to be a lengthy one, with a battle brewing over whether the state should keep paying Mr Zuma's legal bills. Mr Zuma's remaining supporters argue that he is being targeted for backing a radical economic reform agenda.
A new report comes in stating that TSMC is working with the tech giant to make microLED displays for wearables, and it is fairly obvious that the next product that will feature these screens is the Apple Watch.
Citing people familiar with the plans, Bloomberg reports that Apple is planning to use its own chips in Macs by 2020.
Intel has dominated computing processors for more than a decade, taking market share from Advanced Micro Devices Inc., its only rival in the market. "Were Apple to stop using Intel CPUs, it would likely do so gradually, with the final (earnings) hit likely comprising less than 3% of (earnings) in the early 2020s - which will likely be more than offset by Intel's operational improvements and top-line growth elsewhere". Also, Intel's business has been shifting more to chips for data centers and away from PCs, Muse noted. "We have better control over timing, over cost and over quality", Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said of Apple's chip efforts previous year.

They also suggested he could be "dissuaded from the use of nuclear weapons, by means of a policy of deterrence and containment". North Korea is "almost certain" to have ballistic missiles within six to 18 months that can reach the UK, MPs have warned.
