    Well, for macOS, at least. ;) Apple processors use a customized take on the ARM instruction set and offer more that double the performance per watt than the closest ARM competitors. Most other ARM processors are still nipping at the heels of Intel's Skylake processors but they are jumping ahead there, too. So for Apple's ARM brethren, competing with Apple is like shooting for the moon. If anyone needs to be concerned here, it is Intel who is getting attacked from all directions. I had said years before that the multiheaded hydra of ARM as well as AMD would spell the undoing of Intel's market dominance and that prediction seems to be coming to fruition.
