During the WWDC today, Apple announced the switch from Intel to custom ARM-based processors for its Mac computers. The move means Macs will run on the same family of chips as the iPhones and iPads and will be able to run iOS applications natively.

"We expect to ship our first Mac with Apple silicon by the end of the year," said chief executive Tim Cook.
