Sketchy Rumor Claims Apple Developing Nintendo Switch-Style Gaming Console

Apple is dealing with a Nintendo Switch-style handheld games console, according to a questionable brand-new report coming from Asia.
According to a post on a Korean forum, shared by Twitter user @FrontTron, Apple is establishing a portable hybrid games console, similar to the Nintendo Switch. While the sourcing of the report is suspect, it has gained some presence in larger news outlets over the past day or 2, so we figured it was at least worth acknowledging.
The device will obviously include an entirely brand-new Apple-designed application processor, ignoring to use an A-series or M-series chip. This chip seems particularly created for gaming and is said to feature improved GPU efficiency and enhanced ray tracing.
Apple is supposed to presently remain in settlements with a variety of well-known computer game studios, including Ubisoft, the maker of popular titles such as “Assassins Creed,” “Far Cry,” and “Watch Dogs,” about developing games for the brand-new device.
It is unknown where this console would be positioned between gadgets such as the iPad and the Apple TV, which both use combination with Apple Arcade and support for a host of external controllers, including some that take hints from the Nintendo Switchs style.
Late last year, Bloombergs Mark Gurman said that Apple was working on a brand-new Apple TELEVISION model with a more powerful video gaming focus and the leaker called “Fudge” stated that Apple was developing a gaming-focused Apple TELEVISION with an A14X chip.
It is uncertain where these rumors now stand offered the recent launch of the second-generation Apple TELEVISION 4K, which seemed to take a step back in terms of video gaming with its older A12 Bionic processor and the upgraded Siri Remote, which lacks the accelerometer and gyroscope present in its predecessor.
Apple did release its own games console in 1996 with the Apple Bandai Pippin, which was mostly unsuccessful and discontinued following Steve Jobs go back to the company. Reports about the business re-engaging with the console gaming market have actually flowed periodically ever given that but have never ever come to fruition.
The reputable leaker called “L0vetodream” said last year that Apple was dealing with its own gaming controller, and after a spate of reports about a gaming-focused Apple TELEVISION product, it is not totally out of the question that Apple might be dealing with some sort of video games console. However, without more concrete info it is essential to take this report with a heavy pinch of salt.
