Mark Gurman for Bloomberg News:

Gaming should be a strong focus of the machine, especially given that it will have multiple processors, a fan, extremely high resolution displays and its own App Store.

Look for Apple to position the device as a dream for game developers.

Next, media consumption. I expect Apple to work with media partners to create content that can be watched in VR on the device.

Third, communications. Look for Animojis and a VR FaceTime-like experience to be the new-age Zoom.

MacDailyNews Take: So, three things: It’s a game machine. It’s a media player. It’s an internet communicator. It’s a game machine. It’s a media player. It’s an internet communicator… Are you getting it, yet?

  1. I’ve been on this site nearly twenty years. I’ve been looking forward to every new Apple development.

    Now I’ve reached the half-way ages of life, and I just can’t figure out how to look forward to wearing headgear…

    I DO know it WILL be awesome. *

    But can anyone relate??

  2. Yawn. if Apple were interested in games, they would be Steam at this point. This has been a thing for a long, long time. I don’t expect great things from modern Apple. I just hope they continue to keep privacy front and center, and kill their plans to eliminate their entire narrative with iCloud back doors. There is nothing exciting or fun about modern technology. Web 2.0 was the beginning of the end.
