Apple Begins Shipping Developer Transition Kits

Apple Begins Shipping Developer Transition Kits

Apple announced their next hardware transition during WWDC last week. Similar to the PowerPC to Intel transition of 2006, Apple is ready to transition from x86 to ARM. As part of this effort, they’re allowing developers to get their hands on this new hardware early. The company announced a Developer Transition Kit – a modified Mac Mini with an A12Z processor – would be available to interested software developers. It appears those kits have started shipping as photos are popping up online. It will be interesting to see how MacOS apps run on the ARM architecture.
