Describe who the "PC industry" is please as #1 & #2 Dell-EMC and HP-Cray don't have anything that screams "apple" besides their slim lines and chrome books, nor do their server lines.
Intel owns fabs that make ARM chips currently. ARM leases out the designs. Intel even has it's own ARM line, albeit tiny.
Ever hear of a surface book? Do you see them everywhere? No. Microsoft is running an emulator to get them to run (a non full version of)windows and now that 32 bit is going out, 64 bit. That's not a solution.
ARM is for lightweight, efficient, and cheap things. iOS, which is derived from OSX, has ran on non Intel chips for years. Both are lightweight, as is android, when compared to Windows.
Price to performance rules in the PC, server, and supercomputer world. Until ARM has something to meet AMD's Zen 3, which has put Intel to shame in every category from gaming to workstation to efficiently to price, it's not going to be a market leader in full size PCs, let alone bankrupt Intel.
Also the same was said with IBM'S chips in apple, its the end of Intel and AMD, etc and now look at IBM'S chip line today. You don't hear about it.
Also ARM is in some way, shape, or form, being acquired by another powerhouse in the PC, server, and supercomputer world: Nvidia.
