After almost 10 years my trustworthy MacBook Pro is seriously running out of breath. So I am thinking about getting a new one - investment is not small, but i am prepared to do it.
One thing which makes me think is that Apple will move to ARM processors, starting in 2020 (that’s next year!). Looking from software developer perspective i am a bit worried and few questions came to my mind …
Will i be able to develop and test ARM applications with this machine? Or i will be forced to buy a new machine just for the ARM development?
Bottom line question is: does investment in Apple hardware (as a software developer) makes any sense at the moment. Or it’s better to wait another year to see what Apple with bring on the table. What about users buying expensive Mac Pro’s at this very moment. And upcoming MacBook Pro coming later this year - everything is still based on Intel.
Maybe i am worried without a reason, but i can’t find any debate on internet, which is related to these questions. What is your opinion on this matter?
