Apple unveils first Mac computers powered by its own chips

Apple has unveiled the first Mac computers to receive the firm’s much-anticipated own-design computer chips, claiming the change will have a “profound impact”. New versions of the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac mini were announced as the first to include the Apple M1 chip, as the company begins to transition away from Intel processors. The move, which was first confirmed in the summer, will see Apple gradually introduce its own silicon to all its computers over the next few years, greatly improving performance, Apple claims.
