Apple working on Hybrid Console to compete with PS5, XBox and Nintendo?
As the gaming demand keeps on increasing so do the requirement for TV consoles demands in the market. Apple recently announced its TV 4K powered by the A12 Bionic chipset which doesn’t live up to the expectations and indicates that the tech giant isn’t focusing on gaming performance.
Now, it seems that the company is specializing in a new portal hybrid console for gaming which will be powered by a new chipset with performance modifications with next-gen graphics processing.
Wccftech reported that the upcoming hybrid portal console from Apple will be comparable to the Nintendo Switch. This means that Apple is now looking to have a product that directly targets gamers.
The rumoured upcoming product might have room for a powerful cooling system that sets it apart from the existing powerful devices from the brand such as iPhone and iPad. Also, the hybrid portal console will be cored by a new chipset which will be different from the existing A-series and M-series SoC.
Further, the report adds that Apple is mediating with notable game developers like Ubisoft to bring exclusive games to Apple Arcade. It will be intriguing to see how the company incorporates the impending console with its gaming-focused service Apple Arcade.
There's no official news from Apple yet about this, so do take this news with a grain of salt.
