I guess the move to Arm architecture means that all the phone/tablet apps work on M1, and they 'only' have to persuade a much smaller group of "bigger" app makers to re-build their apps... They've still got work to do there:

They've oft boasted about the number of apps in order to wall-in their users and fend off the competition... they couldn't take the risk of trying to get them all rebuilt.

Friends of the Earth NL is calling on #Shell to start reducing its CO2 emissions to net zero in 2050 instead of planned reduction by only 65% compared with 2016.

The thing is: they've known about RISC-V for the last 7 years: long enough to design a chip... & there are good reasons for them to use RISC-V:
- it's extensible - good for watch, phone, tablet, PC, workstation
- all devices using the same ISA, same Kernel & OS = Convergence
- they can keep their work proprietary
- they can develop without needing to get things ratified

The downside though, is that app developers would have to re-work their apps.
