Mac Soda has heard that ARM’s Cortex will in fact be used for a multi-touch Apple device in the near future. What we don’t know is what device this will be. It could be the NetBook/iTouch, it could be the iPhone and iPod Touch, or it could be all of them. What we do know is that Cortex will be coming to at least one touch screen Apple product in the near future.
The most logical device Cortex will appear inside of, in my eyes, is the device I previously detailed. I have a strong feeling this will come, but again, this is not something I heard from a source. The only thing I have heard from a source is this: ARM’s Cortex will be coming to a Touch OS product… soon.
UPDATE: 9 to 5 Mac, the most trusted Apple rumor site around, was given an internal image from ARM which showed OS X on the list of future Cortex products. Seth Weintraub, 9 to 5 Mac’s lead writer, posted it on his ComputerWorld blog.
