Rumors are pointing to a new Apple TV with a new and more powerful A14 chip, along with game control that will be done by the apple company itself. Rumors are given more force precisely by Apple Arcade, which is not the best and most popular gaming platform, but has been growing since last year.
We agree that Apple does not have a gaming platform as robust as Microsoft, Valve, Nintendo and Sony do. This scenario did not make Tim Cook’s company give up on the idea of finding players, going beyond those on iPhones, iPods Touch and iPads. The greatest example of this path is in the Apple Arcade, released in 2019.
The Apple TV, which in the 4K version already has strong enough hardware for many heavy games, can be an entry for games on TV through the Apple Arcade and that looks strong for the consoles. It is precisely in this product where a next generation can breathe more, with a new gadget working with an A14 chip (the same as the new iPad Air) to take advantage of physical control.
New games may require new Apple TV
Whoever fans this rumor is Fudge, a Twitter user who has been getting most of his predictions right about Apple. He also says that to compensate for this new hardware and the new control, big games are under development for the Apple Arcade. The example offered for game quality is with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
Fudge points to Apple as one of the investors in these heavier games, to run on at least one A13 Bionic chip. If the requirement is met, it may leave out all Apple TV available on the market right now – the 4K version, the most powerful of them, uses the A10X chip.
