Apple Discarding Intel led to Positive Results in 2021
Dec 29, 2021 By MarketDepth
Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) choice to discard Intel has led to positive results in 2021. The change permitted the company to reevaluate the Mac, which had been lacking in some departments. After the split from Intel, Apple has introduced what is thought to be more exciting computers, which in combination with the pandemic has skyrocketed the business, according to a CNBC report.
Separation in 2020
The report detailed that “It wasn’t always a given.” When the technology company announced the separation from Intel in 2020, many doubted how well it could power its devices. Apple used in-house chips for iphones and iPads but had been using Intel-powered computers for the past 15 years. Nevertheless, those worries were rapidly put to rest.
Apple launched its first M1 Apple Chip in 2020 within a MacBook Air laptop. The chip was more powerful than that of Intel and offered a longer battery life with a fanless design. The launch was an immediate success.
Revenue Up YoY
Revenue in fiscal Q3 rose 16% year over year. Within that quarter, the company launched an all-new iMac which showcased a redesigned thin metal body. The model is slimmer than the previous Intel one’s and benefited from other features like a better webcam, great speakers and a sharper display.
Completely Integrated in New Products
Some reports insinuate that there will be yet another new MacBook Air, iMac Pro and Mac Pro in 2022. Moreover, the M1 may be integrated into completely new product categories.
