Apple releasing new iPad, three Macs this year

Apple may shove its ARM co-processors into a trio of new Mac Books this year Apple may shove its ARM co-processors into a trio of new Mac Books this year

A fresh story now claims that Apple is working on at least three updated Mac models, including laptops and a new desktop, that will pack a custom co-processor made by Apple alongside the expected Intel silicon. Now the new report indicates, the Apple iPad for 2018 could be the first with Apple's own GPU chip. It says Apple is working on "at least" three new models with accompanying Apple-designed silicon, including two laptops and a new desktop. Available as part of the newest iMac Pro, the T2 coprocessor handles not only fingerprint verification but also encrypts data and checks the operating system for security issues when the user boots up their machine.

It's quite likely that Apple is simply extending the Touch Bar to the rest of the MacBook family, which would satisfy the rumour of new notebooks. According to the report, Apple will launch three new products this year in the Mac category and a new iPad as well.

The T1 chip, which is employed in Apple's 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro, helps to manage various aspects of the OLED Touch Bar, Touch ID, and Secure Enclave on outfitted machines. But perhaps the most important thing here is that it seems to move Apple ever closer to using its own chips as the core processor inside the Mac. It would be unusual for Apple to stick to "A11" chips for year-end iPads as presumably the new iPhones will house A12 internals. Apple designs SoCs for iPhones, iPads and Apple Watch as well as the co-processors found in new Macs. But these chips will not power the full computer experience.

Every year, Apple updates its Mac computers, but not every upgrade brings over groundbreaking features.

Many people speculated for years that Apple plans on creating its own custom chips capable of powering MacBooks and iMacs.
