Apple occupies nearly 80% of the Arm processor-based notebook market share
Apple is accelerating the pace of transition from Intel x86 processors to self-developed chips, including MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac mini, which may get rid of Intel x86 processors faster than planned. Although there is only one M1 chip, for the time being, Apple will soon release a MacBook Pro model equipped with the new M1X.
According to the research company Strategy Analytics, processors based on the Arm architecture occupy more and more markets, and Apple’s laptops are the main driving force, contributing a considerable part of the growth. Data show that 79% of notebooks based on Arm processors in 2021 will be Apple’s MacBook series. With the release of M1X and new MacBook Pro models, Apple will further increase its share.
