According to the latest leaks, the new iMac Pro uses Apple A10 Fusion mobile chips as a coprocessor. For several years, insiders have suggested that the Cupertino company will install branded ARM chips in desktop computers, but confirmation of the guess was only now. A hint at innovation was discovered by specialists Steve Trowton-Smith and Jonathan Levin in the code BridgeOS 2.0. At the same time, the use of the mobile chipset from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the new generation iMac was also revealed.
Developer Guilherme Rambo studied the system code in detail and found out that the A10 Fusion coprocessor in iMac Pro is responsible for calling the voice assistant on the command “Hi Siri”, the security of downloading and running macOS.
Recall Apple first showed iMac Pro in the summer at the WWDC conference, but the presentation never mentioned the A10 Fusion. Probably, the manufacturer will open this option later as a surprise. Learn this for certain will only succeed by the end of 2017, when the computer goes on sale.
