Apple: a semiconductor superpower in the making

Industry sources and analysts suggest that Apple is keen to expand its semiconductor capabilities further. They say the company is interested in building core processors for notebooks, modem chips for iPhones, and a chip that integrates touch, fingerprint and display driver functions.

Apple is building ARM laptops. The interesting question is whether they’ll run iOS or macOS.

My money’s on the former.
