E-book—Apple’s M1 Chip: a new possible

The M1, Apple's new ARM-based chip, is not only the darling of tech reviewers. It's the start of a whole new era. Jamf has written an e-book to help you learn more.

What people are saying about the Apple M1 chip

Reviewers are agog, competitors are shaking in their boots, and the tech world is abuzz with news of Apple's new M1 chip: the new ARM-based system on a chip completely designed by Apple.

The Apple M1 chip is a huge leap forward for Apple, most definitely. And it also heralds a huge leap forward for the entire world of tech as customers begin to expect the same performance from their laptops as they do their desktops. Or, in the case of the M1: better performance.

Described by reviewers as "raring to go the instant you open its lid," "screamingly fast for developers," and "scorching," this chip is definitely fast: the M1 chip offers three times the performance per watt than that of previous Mac chips and twice the CPU speed, as well as two times the graphics speed than the latest PC laptop chip.

The M1 chip's efficiency increases battery life, as well, with a rather astounding battery life of two-to-three times that of machines without the M1.

What the M1 chip means for Apple

Not only is the M1 chip astonishingly fast and efficient, the fact that Apple now owns the production of its entire machine means that they can move forward at their own pace without waiting for vendors to keep up. This opens up horizons for the entire Apple ecosystem and Apple's customers.

This improvement in laptop speed and efficiency puts Apple in an extraordinary position to continue pushing for Apple in the enterprise with one heck of a lever -- and puts the enterprise in the position to increase their employees' productivity and mobility.

What the M1 chip means for Jamf customers

Due to our close partnership with Apple and our history of being ready to go the day Apple releases new products, Jamf was ready to support both legacy Mac devices and those with the M1 chip from the get-go.

What the M1 chip means for the industry as a whole

Bringing such speed and efficiency to a laptop has the potential to unmoor information workers from their desks entirely and sets expectations for mobile performance at an all-time high. This can mean greater flexibility for enterprise, developers and designers as well as a whole new view of mobile device computing.

Understanding the impact of Apple's M1 chip

Jamf has put together an e-book outlining in more detail what the M1 chip is and how it works along with information on how it has the potential to disrupt the tech industry -- and what it will take for their partners to keep up. This e-book, designed for a general audience and tech purchasing decision-makers, can help you to understand what the M1 chip can mean for you and your business as well as what it can mean for the world of computing.
