Apple’s November Mac event was a monumental moment in Apple’s history –– it signified their transition from Intel-based Macs to using their own, Apple-designed silicon. Apple launched the event by announcing its new M1 chip, an SoC (system on a chip) that combines the CPU, GPU, memory, storage, Neural Engine, and Apple Secure Enclave all onto one chip.
In this episode of the podcast, we explain what you need to know about Apple’s new M1 chip, how its design enables better performance and battery life, and what it signifies for Apple’s future.
