Apple chooses to develop its Mac chips in Jerusalem

The tech giant currently has about 2,000 employees in Israel

Apple is expanding operations in Israel and opening a development center in Jerusalem, the business site reported globes.

It will be the US tech giant’s third center in Israel after Herzliya and Haifa. While most multinational companies announce the opening of new development centers through press releases to maximize media publicity, Apple’s new development center in Givat Ram was revealed in a LinkedIn post. .

According to this post, Apple’s Jerusalem development center will focus on hardware and chip development as part of the project to develop processors for Mac computers. Last year, Apple created its own chips for Mac computers after relying on Intel processors for years.

“Apple’s Israeli development centers played a crucial role in the development of the M1 Pro and M1 Max processors,” said Johny Srouji, Apple’s Vice President of Hardware Technologies, in early July.

Apple currently has about 2,000 employees in Israel at its development centers in Herzliya and Haifa. Last month, it was revealed that the company had 60 employees at a Palestinian development center in Ramallah.
