"Universal apps are the fastest, most powerful apps you can get," says Federighi. A howl rises from Microsoft's campus.

Those run on both apple silicon and intel

The rest, on Rosetta too. Allegedly, apple says, old apps could run better on rosetta 2 than on intel.

Nope

They did say they're looking forward to great things in 2021, and the transition to ARM should take 2 years.

My bet is bigger MacBooks and iMacs will be first.
