Apple has been using Intel’s desktop processors in the Mac since 2005. The next-gen Haswell processor is expected to come in the next iteration of the iMac.

Would Apple really abandon what it’s doing on ARM for Intel, a chip maker that’s been really struggling on mobile?
Now another report claims that Apple and Intel have recently discussed a mobile partnership.
