Are Intel Macs Depreciating? The True Cost and Consequences of Intel Mac Depreciation.

Apple has signaled the end of an era for Intel-based Mac devices, and that could mean rapid depreciation for the current technology fleet your business is operating.

At the 2020 Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple announced a shift that has marked a significant turning point for their customers: the declaration that company-designed chips would become the new standard for their products, meaning businesses would face the pressing need to adapt swiftly to mitigate the consequences of Intel device depreciation.

The ramifications of this shift are profound and multifaceted. For Mac users accustomed to the reliability and familiarity of Intel processors, the discontinuation of Intel Macs signifies a fundamental change in their computing environment. MacBook Pros with Intel processors are no longer available. With the introduction of the new MacBook Pro powered by the M2 and M3 Ultra chips, the writing is on the wall for the eventual obsolescence of Intel-based systems.

One of the immediate concerns for businesses is the uncertainty surrounding future macOS updates for Intel Macs. There is speculation around the timeline for dropping support, with some suggesting that the next major release of macOS in 2024 could be the last for Intel devices. If that scenario were to happen, it would leave companies relying on Intel Macs vulnerable to security risks and compatibility issues.
