Apple May Merge Mac with iPhone

Oct 16 2013, 11:43pm CDT | by

A merger may take place between the iPhone and the Mac and it’s all thanks to Apple’s 64-bit A7 chip; at least Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth thinks so.

As CNET reports, Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical is of the professional opinion that the deeper meaning behind Apple's 64-bit A7 is that the Mac and the iPhone are set to be mixed. He claims that the chip is geared more towards desktops.

During an interview, Shuttleworth thinks that the signal Apple is sending is very clear, and that signal is that there will soon be a hybrid between the MacBook Air and the iPhone.  This Ubuntu creator is of the opinion that this mixture was already in the mind of Apple when this new chip was announced.

Many are taking note of how quickly mobile processors are getting to desktop level. Apple is recorded as calling their new chip “desktop-class”, which is a phrase many in the industry are taking seriously. They say this was no mere slip of the tongue but an indicator of the future. After all, what’s the point of mentioning CPU desktop performance without having plans to include that CPU in a desktop?

That is exactly what Shuttleworth noticed and clearly believes, as there is a push from Ubuntu to merge the codebase for phone operating systems, desktops, and tablets.  The company is expecting their converged OS to appear next year, taking opportunity before Microsoft gets the chance to create seamlessness between Windows for PC and mobile.

It still remains that  OS X operates on Intel’s x86 chips while iOS uses Apple’s A series. While there might be some similarities between the two systems they are both quite distinct from the other.
