Today at WWDC 2020, one of the largest events of the year, Apple officially announced the Mac transition to Apple silicon.
Alongside the announcement of the Mac transtion, Apple announced the next major release of macOS named ‘Big Sur’. This latest release is the biggest update in more than a decade and will feature a new design, major update to Safari, Messages, Maps, and more.
Developers can easily convert their applications to run on Apple silicon and for the first time make their iOS and iPadOS applications available on the Mac without any code modifications.
To help developers get started with Apple silicon, Apple has launched the ‘Universal App Quick Start Program’ which provides developers access to documentation, support forums, beta versions of macOS Big Sur, Xcode 12 and the limited use of a Developer Kit, a Mac system based on the A12Z system on a chip.
Apple expects to ship their first Mac with Apple silicon by the end of the year and complete the full transition to silicon in two years. Apple will continue to support intel based Mac systems for many years and will still ship intel-based Mac systems.
