ARM matching x86/AMD64 in performance will require an enormous incrase in power consumption, and by that time there will be no difference between Intel/AMD and ARM. So, ARM are not taking over as they simply can't.
The only area where ARM to beat Intel and AMD is price, which isn't odd as their chips are far less complex. Apple are only doing this to increase their profit margins. They certainly won't lower the price of their products to match their performance, and their consumers don't care. If Apple slapped an Apple logo on a rotting apple people would rush to buy it.
