This may give impetus to the further development of the service Apple Arcade.
As a rule, if Apple takes on something, then the final result is better for her than for the rest. Perhaps this will be the case with eSports. According to rumors, the company praised the prospects of this area (an increase of $ 1 billion per year), which will result in a new computer aimed specifically at the e-sports audience.
Rumors are associated with the further development of the game service Apple Arcade – its transformation into something more. Well, the hardware for e-sportsmen will be a completely new computer (it is not yet clear whether it will be a laptop with a large screen or an ultra-wide all-in-one candy bar) with a high standard PC, but relatively low for Apple itself – up to $ 5000.
It is expected that not only Apple itself, but also many of its partners from the supply chain will be cream on such a product – Quanta PC assembler, contract manufacturer TSMC, case manufacturers Hongzhun and Kecheng, manufacturers of power supplies Delta and Lite-On – and many others.
Details of the project will appear later, and Apple may officially announce a new initiative at the WWDC 2020 developer conference in June next year.
