Big endian Vs little endian

With Apple officially declaring that Mac's would move to Intel processors, it brought out an important question in my mind...What would happen to the byte-sex???

Mac's use big-endian format and intel processors always use little-endian format. So how will applications on Mac behave if the Intel processors are used?
