It is probably a bigger coincidence that you have no idea what you are talking about. You may have been born yesterday, but many of us have been around just a bit longer. Apple switched to Intel in 2006. This was ten (10) years after Steve Jobs's return to Apple. The product manifestation of Apple's comeback began with the the original iMac in 1999, some seven (7) years prior to the Intel transition. The OS manifestation of Apple's comeback was the release of MacOS X 10.0 in 2001, some five (5) years prior to the Intel transition.
Apple's was already doing quite well when it initiated the Intel transition. Without question, it has done even better since then. After Apple walked away, IBM begged it to return. Had Apple been in the bad shape that you claim, then IBM would have said "Good riddance to bad trash."
Since Apple adopted Intel, Apple introduced the iPhone (2007) and the iPad (2010). Perhaps, you have heard of them? Neither of these devices use Intel processors, but they are the products that put rocket boosters under Apple's fortunes.
To the extent that Intel is responsible for Apple's current success, I would argue that it was not Intel's processors, but Intel's connection technology that played a huge role. Specifically, Intel's USB technology in the original iMac. Apple was the first OEM that abandoned its older connection technology in favor of USB and Ethernet.
The iMac not only revitalized the Mac, but it also saved USB. This pretty blue computer began a march by Apple to the largest capitalized company in America.
