A new report from Bloomberg's often-reliable Mark Gurman indicates that Apple is planning to release three Macs with new internal hardware by the end of the year.

Apple's 2018 suite of MacBooks and Mac desktops will feature the company's T-series processors, according to a report from Bloomberg. The trio of new Macs includes a new desktop and updated laptops as well.

Co-processors, like the ones used for the latest Touch Bar MacBook Pros, are ARM-based chips that are created for a certain kind of MacBook. Coprocessors include ARM (OTCPK:SFTBF, OTCPK:SFTBY) with the Intel CPU in a setup that now exists in the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and the iMac Pro. So far, only two Mac lines include custom Apple processors: the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and the iMac Pro.

These coprocessors will reportedly be similar to the T2 and T1 chips in the iMac Pro and the 2016 MacBook Pro respectively.

So would could this move mean for Apple? The iPhone and iPad are clear examples of processors which perform really well and if Apple starts producing everything themselves, it is a clear indication of bidding goodbye to companies like Intel. Under the hood, users will get an octa-core Intel Xeon W processor with support for up to 32GB RAM. iMac Pro also supports up to 4TB of SSD and up to 128GB of ECC memory. At this point in time, the change does not seem that necessary but it will always be a welcome addition.

The expanded use of Apple's own chips for the Mac could imply that the organization requires not sit tight for long on different organizations to actualize the coveted prerequisites. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates. Share your views in the comments.
