According to an image shared on Twitter by an Apple engineer, Apple is gifting a unique t-shirt to engineers and staffers who worked on the M1 chip to commemorate the end of the first year of Mac’s transition to Apple Silicon.
Andy Boretto, an Apple senior software engineer, tweeted an image of a special t-shirt with the M1 chip and its accompanying glow, as well as an Apple card that reads, “Now and then, something happens that changes everything. Congratulations and thank you for making Apple M1 a reality!”
last day of the year special delivery! #m1 team, proud to have worked on PowerPC to Intel and now M1 transitions #apple
Boretto stated that December 31, 2021, will be the “last day of the year special delivery,” and that he is proud to have worked on Apple’s transition to Intel and now Apple silicon.
Apple announced its transition to Apple silicon in June 2020, and the first Apple silicon chip, M1, was released in November of that year. Apple has stated that the transition will take two years to complete. In October, the company made another step forward in its transition by releasing the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, the first high-end chips designed for the Mac.
Apple is expected to launch a redesigned MacBook Air with M2, a larger Apple silicon iMac, a high-end Mac mini, and a new Mac Pro in 2022.
