    This chip is mainly dedicated to AI-related works such as facial recognition, speech recognition, and few related tasks. The company did not speak anything about this newly popped up subject. Since all the tech giants are running towards creating a powerful AI based system, it looks like Apple has also joined the race to catch up with the competitors.

    Especially Google and Amazon have already created the biggest space in this segment, so Apple may have to struggle a bit to reach the higher peak. The upcoming chip is said to be designed in such a way that it can integrate it into autonomous cars and robots which may rely on AI technology to operate.

The Apple devices currently in the market depends on the processor and the graphics chip to handle the AI processes. So, we can consider this new chip to work faster and reliably compared to it. This, in turn, improves the battery life of the device.
