"We believe Apple is looking to merge iOS (iPhones/iPads) with OS X (Macs) into a single platform for apps and cloud services starting in 2012-13," Jefferies & Company analyst Peter Misek wrote in an August 2 research note entitled "One to Rule Them All: iOS and OS X Roadmaps to Merge."
In his research note, Misek noted, "OS merger to start in 2012 or 2013 and be complete in 2016. Apple can use a 32-bit ARM chip design "to address the vast majority of the OS X ecosystem's needs in 2012-13 except for high-end professional devices. Then, when a 64-bit ARM chip arrives in 2016, Apple will have a single OS and hardware architecture."

"SmartWatches like the upcoming Apple iWatch are intended to supplement the functionality of other iDevices like an iPhone or iPad. Instead of being as powerful as an iPhone, or even a Nano, the iWatch would connect to other devices using low-power Bluetooth 4.0," Inquisitr said. The iWatch "allows you to do things like read a text message or control music directly from your wrist without having to pull out your device."
It is not known if it's true or not whether Intel will produce the processor.
