Apple Could Launch A High-End ‘Gaming’ Mac In 2020 For eSports Market: Report

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.
