On June 22, 2020, Apple announced the transition of the Macintosh from hot, slow and inefficient Intel to far superior Apple Silicon which the company explicitly stated would be “the beginning of a two-year transition.”
Well, it’s been two years on June 22, 2022. Apple is now 3 months and 18 days late (and beyond).
Notably, Apple is still selling a Mac mini with an Intel Core i5, and most importantly, the regularly ignored Mac Pro still completely hampered by Intel processors. We also seem to have missed the option of a larger iMac along the way (the current 24-inch iMac tries to straddle the previous 21.5 and 27-inch models). I would much prefer Apple to offer customers a choice between the current 24-inch iMac and a new 32-inch iMac option.
But I’m digressing. The point is, we’re getting to two and a half years since the beginning of Apple’s “two-year transition” to free the full range of Macs from Intel Dreck by upgrading to Apple Silicon superior.
So how long do we have to wait, Apple?
