I have been pondering whether Apple would benefit from shipping a version of their SoC on its own. Since MS has full Windows-on-ARM, it is looking like Intel could be foundering in the broader market, and ARM may overtake them fairly soon. Which means that Mac could go to Apple processors in the near future (oh, what an original thought), and would it not be better to have the rest of the non-server industry moving that way as well? I envision something like a A14c model, that is almost as good as Apple's own model, more suitable for full-on computers than for hand-held devices, better than most of the competition, just to get everyone acclimated to post x86, so that when Apple changes over, they would move into the same space as everyone else. Perhaps they could disguise the product under a different vendor, but is there any way this could make good business sense?
