Bloomberg is reporting that Apple is working on a dedicated co-processor to handle AI related tasks for a future iPhone. This, if true, would be really exciting news. One of Apple’s greatest strengths in the iPhone is their custom chip architecture, and the ‘M’ series of motion co-processors went a long way to allowing the iPhone to be as power efficient as it is today while still doing more and more in the background. Really excited to see if this plays out in the future.
