Is Apple Working on a Handheld Games Console?

Apple’s announcement of a Nintendo Switch competitor has had a lot of gamers’ tongues buzzing, which is understandable. Apple’s vast resources, long-standing reputation for flair, and recent advancements in system technology like the Apple M1 processor and Neural Engine might result in a fantastic Switch replacement.

Every few months, a storey surfaces claiming that Apple is developing a Nintendo Switch competitor in order to get a foothold in the handheld gaming hardware market.

Rumors of an Apple-built Nintendo Switch-style console first started circulating back in May 2021. A South Korean forum thread claimed that Apple is developing a hybrid gaming console that would work similarly to a Nintendo Switch, that is allowing the user to alternate between handheld mode, docking, and otherwise.

So, right now, these are rumors. Apple has never mentioned a handheld gaming console. Furthermore, those readers of a certain vintage may remember Apple’s last venture into gaming consoles, the Apple-Bandai Pippin, which was a massive flop.

However, the Pippin launched 25 years ago up against the original PlayStation, the Nintendo 64, and the ill-fated Sega Saturn. Going up against those legendary consoles was difficult back then, but this time out, Apple has a few more tricks up its sleeve, and there are a few reasons why an Apple handheld gaming console isn’t as outlandish as you might think.

One of the other things that puts a question mark over the rumors of an Apple handheld gaming console is the lack of developer support. Even with the M1 chip, big-name developers like Ubisoft or Bethesda aren’t rushing to develop games for the architecture. The market just isn’t there currently.
