Yet again, Apple is set to feature its custom-made chips in the upcoming Macs. By the end of 2018, Apple plans to bring its T-series processors for at least three Macs. These custom chips are said to be more security-based with additional functions.
Apple has first introduced the house-made custom chips to Mac in the year 2016 with high-end Mac Book Pro which included T1 chip that enabled the smooth functioning of Touch Bar and Touch ID. Recently it has included the T2 chip inside the iMac Pro that manages boot process, camera, and microphone among many other functions.
Since years Apple has been developing chips in-house for the iphones, tablets but now it seems to turn into a chip powerhouse with a significant increase in the production of house-made chips.
With the increased usage of in-house chips, Apple has become less dependent on its external manufacturers like Intel, Qualcomm and it won’t be surprising if eventually Apple becomes independent and build its own computer CPU.
While Apple is already known for its distinctiveness, now with its own custom chips, Apple is likely to set itself apart from its competitors. This customization should give Apple, an ability to improve the performance of its products and make them distinct from other company products.
Now we can’t wait to see the novelties in the upcoming Apple products.
