According to the report by analyst Peter Misek, Apple is very likely to completely merge the Mac OS and iOS by 2012. And Apple will use the A6 quad-core processor to unify its mobile and computing devices. MacBook Air’s would be the first on the list to get the new chip, and would be slated for the second half of 2012 or 2013
“We believe Apple is ready to start sampling the A6 quad-core app processor and will be the first to such multi-device platform capable of PC-like strength,” Misek says.
The Mac OS X Line has married some aspects of iOS with Mac OS X, but a little less successfully than many had hoped.
Apple hopes to provide a seamless experience for its users across multiple devices.
The MacBook Air’s will adopt a 32-bit ARM architecture. However, MacBook “Pro” models and Mac desktops will stick with the current software with Intel-based processors in order to maximize 64-bit application compatibility. But that they will switch over to an iOS platform by 2016 when 64-bit ARM is available.
