Apple is rumoured to be working on new high-end ‘gaming-focused’ Mac for 2020 that targets the eSports market.
According to Patently Apple, who reported on a rumor originating from Taiwan suggests that Apple is planning to launch an e-sports-centric PC next year with a unit price of up to $5,000 (about NT $ 152,100)”.
The report further added: “In addition to the high unit price of Apple ‘s new gaming PC products, it may be a large-screen all-in-one (AIO) or a large-screen gaming laptop.
Details are not clear at this time. It is expected to be announced at Apple’s Global Developer Conference (WWDC) next June”.
In fact, Apple entered the game industry in September this year by launching Apple Arcade with iOS 13. This subscription-based game service costs $4.99 a month and has over 100 exclusive games. Apple Arcade works on all of Apple devices, such as mobile phones, tablets or laptops.
If these rumours turn out to be true, then this will be the first time Apple will enter the high-end eSports PC field.
At the moment, these are all rumours, so do treat this one with a pinch of salt. However, it would be interesting to see how Apple explores the gaming market for Mac considering that the iOS platform has always remained its biggest gaming market.
