Apple’s 64-bit A7 Chip Another Signal That Apple Will Converge OS. X And iOS – Canonical’s Shuttleworth

PC Pro’s Darien Graham-Smith reports that Canonical founder and Ubuntu Linux creator Mark Shuttleworth believes Apple intends to follow Ubuntu’s lead and merge its desktop and mobile operating systems, contending that Apple has sent a signal with the introduction of its 64-bit A7 System-on-Chip that it is fixing to merge its OS X and iOS environments.

Shuttleworth told Graham-Smith: “When Apple announced the iPhone 5s, it called the processor ‘desktop-class’, and I don’t think that was an accident – it was sending what we think is a very clear signal that it will converge the iPhone and the MacBook Air. There’s no point talking about the desktop performance of your CPU unless you plan to make a desktop device with that CPU.” PC Pro will publish the full interview with Mark Shuttleworth in its issue 231 of PC Pro, on sale 14 November.
