Apple’s GPU, tvOS rumour

A new tvOS might get picture in picture

One Apple GPU, one giant leap in graphics for iPhone 8 — Apple is building its own GPU architecture, but why? Rather than being motivated by simple cost savings, evidence points to the timing of a significant technical leap forward that could be as big of an advance as iOS was ten years ago. An Apple GPU could be designed to serve specific use cases Imagination Technology, which currently serves Apple’s iOS GPU needs, doesn’t have any reason to address.

Rumour claims Apple TV to get multi-user support, picture-in-picture with ‘tvOS 11’ — With tvOS 11, likely to be announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June, the Apple TV will allegedly gain a pair of demanded features from the company’s other platforms. Multi-user support will tailor onscreen content to the active profile/Apple ID, Israeli site The Verifier said on Sunday, citing a “reliable source.” People should not only see their personal Apple Music, iCloud, and iTunes content, but also their own apps.
