Every year, tech enthusiasts and creative professionals wait for Apple to bring out some new Mac or refresh there current lineup of MacBooks and iMac. According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple is planning to put custom processors on at least three new mac devices by the end of the year 2018.
We have already seen Apple using custom chips for iPhone, iPad and Apple watch devices. Apple’s latest A11 Bionic chipset found on iPhone X and iPhone 8 is said to be faster than the MacBook Air. Apple bringing Macs with custom chips will give them more control over the device and this might help in making the devices even faster.
We already got a glimpse of what Apple can do with a custom chip in Mac back in 2016 When Apple launched its first MacBook Pro with touch bar. The custom chip inside the laptop was used to power the touch bar and touchID. Apple also included a custom chip in the recently launched iMac Pro.
This new custom chip handles audio, camera processing etc. on the new iMac Pro. Apple getting custom chips on its devices has resulted in one of the best devices in terms of performance in the past and bring the same quality on the Macbooks and iMacs would be great.
We don’t know anything about these new custom chips as of now and we don’t think that Apple will immediately remove all the other 3rd party chips from its popular lineup. Apple will slowly bring in their own chips to optimize the performance and the overall user experience. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates.
