New iPhone with M1 Chip, are you expecting it to come soon whether this year or next year? With the recent iPad Pro making use of their M1 desktop chip to power it, it completely transformed another possibility, everyone under the ecosystem and platform into a single unified chip. It can bring in a lot of benefits, for production in scale, and further break the chain for the Intel almost monopoly in the CPU chip business for a very long time.
Without doubt, the revolutionary chip design featured unified memory and so many GPU processors in the single integrated chip, we can only expect breakthroughs from the conventional and traditional chip design performance. The whole industry will take some time to adjust and adapt to it, as at the point in time, Microsoft do not yet have official Microsoft Windows for M1 Silicon edition available, no like Linux have that in place already.
For Apple, one chip to rule and unified all their product platforms, overall cost saving and maintenance, development and production is significant.
Are you now looking for the new iPhone or replacement for your existing one? Maybe it is really worth delaying it, no for 5G, but for the coming change.
