It will be interesting to watch how the tech giant associates its upcoming console with its gaming service ‘Apple Arcade’. However, this is just speculation and should be taken with a pinch of salt. Last year, it was speculated that Apple would launch a Mac device focusing on gaming needs but it didn’t see the light of day.

The upcoming alleged gaming console from the brands is tipped to ship with a cooling system which is expected to be one of the most powerful devices among the others. Further, the report adds that Apple is negotiating with notable game developers like Ubisoft to bring exclusive games to Apple Arcade. It will be interesting to see how the company integrates the upcoming console with its gaming-focused service Apple Arcade.

It also suggests that the new hybrid processor could be used to power a new handheld console with Apple Arcade on it and a new swath of games to go along with it. Unfortunately, however, there’s just not any evidence that’s going to happen. Also, the hybrid portal console will also be powered by a new chipset which will be different from the existing A-series and M-series SoC.

Do note that the company is yet to reveal anything officially and we recommend you to take this information with a grain of salt and wait for the official announcement. The rumored upcoming product might have room for a powerful cooling system that sets it apart from the existing powerful devices from the brand such as iPhone and iPad.

The TV consoles are getting a lot more powerful than earlier as the requirement for gaming keeps on increasing. If this turned out to be true then it would be the first-ever gaming console from the company which will directly target the gaming society.

The newly announced Apple TV 4K powered by the A12 Bionic chipset doesn’t live up to the expectations and indicates that the tech giant isn’t focusing on gaming performance.

This is the company that outsourced its MFI controllers for the last decade rather than make its own Bluetooth controller and has yet to show any sign of making a tvOS-based home game console.  Sure, that's a long time ago in terms of gaming history, but Apple won't have forgotten its failure quickly.

However, it now seems that the company is working on a new portal hybrid console for gaming which will be powered by a new chipset with performance improvements and enhanced graphics processing.
