10 Technology Predictions for 2013

Apple Makes a MacBook Air That Runs iOS

Going back to the last prediction, Apple has been looking to move away from Intel for its MacBook lines, and it sure isn't going to give away any of its industry-leading profit margins when it comes to owning the whole device.

Recent rumors suggested that Apple would distance itself from Intel in its MacBooks, though not for a few years.

Apple reportedly has big plans for its chip business, now headed by Bob Mansfield as part of the Technologies unit. Technologies combines all of Apple's wireless teams and Apple's semiconductors group, which according to the press release regarding Scott Forstall leaving, the semiconductor unit has "ambitious plans for the future."

Apple has been trying to merge OS X, its desktop operating system with iOS, its mobile operating system, and has done so with some success. I don't expect a full-fledged iOS-enabled MacBook Air, but perhaps one that runs both operating systems. We could potentially see OS X become so iOS-like that users will have a tough time telling the difference.
