ARM processors are licensed out to any company willing to pay ARM for using there design and in paying a licensing fee they get the right to modify registers and call the new design their own unlike Intel and AMD which design and distribute exclusively. The arm architecture was developed and is maintained via updates which companies need to then update their own versions.Why would content creators care about how much time and/or effort it will take developers to port their software to Arm?
You must not have seen how the M1 Macs kick Intel Macs butts.
Are you saying that Intel Macs don't have DRM?
Software and hardware developers who don't want to develop for Apple Silicon don't have to.
The M1 is designed by Apple. It's the same as AMD designing Ryzen CPUs and having TSMC manufacture them.
Yes, the M1 is based on the Arm architecture but is also highly customized. Try running Big Sur on a Raspberry Pi.
Also, the GPU is not part of the Arm architecture. That's all Apple.
And I have absolutely 0 doubt that within the next year someone will figure out how to get Big Sur running on a raspberry pie or even an iPad that's vulnerable to checkm8 because all ARM are fundamentally the same with respect to the 32 bit and 64 bit and so on.
Although this is nowhere near support for running macOS 11 on raspberry pie its an indication of the ability for the two devices to work together which means they can go even further and and figure out the timing differences and thus run macOS on and ARM chip which is similar to the design the M1 is using
Time Machine is built into the system of MacOS and I’m using it since the early days of Mac OS X Leopard. If you have a Raspberry Pi (or…
