Apple Silicon  

  Apple silicon is a series of system on a chip (SoC) and
  system in a package (SiP) processors designed by Apple Inc.,
  mainly using the ARM architecture. They are the basis of
  most new Mac computers as well as all iPhone, iPad, Apple
  TV, and Apple Watch devices and of products such as AirPods,
  AirTag and HomePod.
