Wonder if Apple will still be switching to ARM processors...

MSI Apache Pro | I7-7700HQ | GeForce GTX1060 3GB | 8GB RAM | 128GB SSD | 1TB HDD | Windows 10 x64.

An American company now owning a massively popular CPU (generally used in mobile phones) means Trump will jump all over this and hit all other mobile phone companies bar Apple.  :(

Yep you can licence the api or buy the entire stack. Apple bought the stack and make their own based on the arm
