Don't count on it one bit. Probably take a near miracle me thinks.To be completely accurate, it would be emulated AND virtualized in that scenario. It's also possible that Parallels could emulate the x86 hardware layer and allow x86 Windows installs, but yeah, that performance thing is huge.
I'm wondering if, in the short-term, we'll see Apple use ARM CPUs in the MacBook/MacBook Air, and leave the MacBook Pro as an Intel-based machine. I've got to say that in the higher education market, running Windows on a Mac is a pretty huge deal. Losing that functionality would be somewhat apocalyptic.
You don't necessarily need to port apps to run under Windows 10 on ARM. It runs native Windows apps in a 32-bit Windows emulator, which is it's big restriction - it doesn't support 64-bit Windows apps:Don't count on it one bit. Probably take a near miracle me thinks.
Even if you get ARM-based Windows on there, what Windoze apps are you gonna run inside that? They'd need to also be ARM-based apps, not Wintel ones.
Basically, you need essentially perfect Wintel emulation for it to be all that useful for most people who want it. Otherwise, better off just migrating to Apple/ARM-native apps instead.
I’ll wait for reviews on the battery. My wife’s Apple Watch 3 seems to have a VASTLY longer lasting battery than my Apple Watch 5 — that is my one and only pet peeve about it.No mention of battery life being longer other than iMore website saying "The Apple Watch Series 6 comes with a new S6 processor built to make the Apple Watch run better and for longer before the battery runs down."
