Market Share Growth and Focus on Business Users:

Apple has experienced significant growth in its Mac business, nearly doubling its market share to almost 11 percent since 2020, when it transitioned from Intel to using its custom-designed chips for Mac computers. 

The company showcased a new secure screen-sharing feature targeted at business users, allowing them to access their machines remotely.

Custom-Designed Apple Silicon Chips:

Apple’s custom-designed chips, utilizing Arm Holdings’ design technology, have provided Macs with improved battery life and, for certain tasks, superior performance compared to machines running Microsoft’s Windows operating system. 

Apple’s chips combine the central processor unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU) in a single package, resulting in claimed performance superiority.

Competitive Landscape:

Apple’s impact on the market has prompted companies like Qualcomm and Nvidia to invest in Arm-based chips for Windows and PCs, seeking to compete with Apple’s offerings.

Throughout the event, Apple highlighted the enhanced performance of the new MacBook and iMac machines compared to older models featuring Intel chips, emphasizing the noticeable speed improvements for customers upgrading to devices powered by Apple’s chips.
