Apple Plans To Use Its Own Mac Chips Starting In 2020

Instagram is the latest high-profile name to ditch its Apple Watch app, which raises some interesting questions about the wearable'S direction. Having a native app can provide a bit more granularity to the notifications you receive (WhatsApp either gives me every single message from every group chat I'm in, or none at all), but in some cases the development effort put into these apps just isn't worth it. The company has been designing its own iPhone processors since the release of the iPhone 4 in 2010 and has steadily increased the amount of chip work it handles itself.
Instagram WatchOS app was one of the first set of apps to support the Apple Watch, and that was three years ago. The company's revenue for the quarter was up 12.7% compared to the same quarter previous year. It is like navigating from its original structure and venturing into something different from what we all have come to identify the ephemeral picture sharing app with.
Unlike current OLED screens, the new screens will use different light-emitting compounds, which will make future gadgets, 'slimmer, brighter and less power-hungry.' At the moment, the iPhone X is Apple's first phone which uses an OLED display.
Instagram recently added a new feature to its Direct feature. The said update was released on April 2, 2018. During this period, Apple will probably roll out a series of beta versions which will be exclusively available for developers and public betas won't be available. Apple's revenue for the quarter was up 12.7% on a year-over-year basis. This one is expected to be a brand new product. The report is quite speculative but states that Apple could start replacing Intel chips with its own hardware as early as 2020. This is something that's on the cards thanks to Apple's "Marzipan" project that will ultimately allow for iOS apps to run in macOS. If it happens, this move will certainly revolutionize the way people use applications on their devices. The change, which arrived in homes with 2006's MacBook Pro, saw the company take advantage of the huge economies of scale that Intel could offer, with its x86 architecture by far the most popular across the computing industry at the time.
