Intel will experience a sharp drop in market share in 2022 as Apple moves further away from Intel processors for its own Apple Silicon, Digital hours reports. This suggests that Apple will lose nearly half of its Apple orders this year. It’s on the way for Apple to abandon all of its Intel orders in the near future.
The report continues that:
“Intel is expected to lose nearly 50% of its Apple orders in 2021 and ultimately will not get any orders from the customer. By losing Apple’s 10% market share and seeing AMD stay firmly with an additional 10%, the Intel’s share of the laptop market is expected to drop below 80% in 2023, the sources noted.
This still makes Intel an extremely dominant player in this market, but it is hurting it nonetheless. Apple announced it was moving away from Intel for its own Apple Silicon processors at WWDC last year, before shipping the first Mac M1s in late 2020. For now, you can still buy Macs. Intel to Apple, but it is gradually reducing them. . When Apple first introduced the Apple Silicon Macs, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi, said that “we expect the transition to take about two years.”
While Apple and Intel haven’t had a public row, the raw nerves have definitely been exposed. In a recent presentation at Computex 2021, Intel promised that its Windows laptops provide a “better gaming experience than 100% of Mac laptops.” Meanwhile, while it’s not necessarily a dig at Intel, but rather a hardware issue, many of macOS Monterey’s more interesting features won’t be available on Intel Macs. This includes Live Text, Portrait mode for FaceTime video calls, and more. This is because they require Apple’s M1 chip.
