In less than a month, Apple is going to reveal the new iMac Pro. Specs and added features have been hush-hush so far, but it seems that’s about to change. The rumors surrounding Siri voice support have popped up online and now, they turned into reality #mobilemagic
It seems that Apple will finally grant users the freedom to summon Siri on an iMac, hands-free. The tech giant will add a cutdown A10 Fusion chip for the first time on one of their computers. So far, Apple had shipped MacBook Pro units with a custom ARM chip (T1) that makes Touch ID and the Touch Bar possible.
With this new addition, users will likely find an improvement in performance and experience without damaging battery life too much. More importantly, it’s almost certain that the chip will be used for always-on “Hey, Siri”, the processor running even when the iMac Pro is shut off. Users won’t need to use a keyboard shortcut or click an icon to bring Siri to life and access Apple functionalities via the smart assistant.
