iPhone 11 could incorporate the new R1 coprocessor

We are just a few hours away from the presentation of the new iPhone 11 and we are already seeing what will be the last rumours of this team before all its features are confirmed in tomorrow’s Keynote. As reported today by MacRumors in an article, Apple will include the R1 coprocessor with the code name ‘Rose’ in its new iPhones.

As we have already seen in the rest of iPhone, besides the main processor of the computer there are also several coprocessors that carry out different tasks with the aim of taking work off the main processor that is reserved for the most important functions.

Right now the coprocessor included in the iPhone is the M series which gives iOS information about the location of the iPhone in space. Now as we have seen in the internal compilation of iOS 13 that in this new generation of iPhone we will see the new Rose coprocessor, the R1 (t2006) which would be similar to the M series.

Right now the motion coprocessor integrates data from the compass, gyroscope, accelerometer, barometer, and microphone that lets iOS know where the mobile device is located. The new Rose coprocessor will arrive integrating information from many more sensors such as the inertial measurement unit (IMU), Bluetooth 5.1, ultra-wideband (UWB) features and camera sensor data such as motion capture and optical tracking.

It is interesting to see that this coprocessor will integrate the information of the Bluetooth connectivity and this would give rise to think that we are close to the launch of a new accessory of the company that will help us locate the personal items With the characteristics of angle of arrival (AoA) and angle of departure (AoD) of the connectivity Bluethoth 5.1 the team will be able to locate the direction of the Bluetooth signal something that would be very useful to run the hypothetical Apple Tag that could be presented tomorrow to locate it.

In addition to the iPhone knows more precisely where it is located in space helps and much to the future functions in augmented reality that we will see , as it is necessary to have a good experience with the AR that iOS knows where the mobile is located at all times.

We do not have precise information as to whether this new R1 coprocessor will replace the current M coprocessor, since being more advanced it is possible that they will end up with one of the two. But if you really want a good experience you might keep both so that each one has defined and differentiated functions.

Leave us in the comment box what you think of this new co-processor that we would see presented tomorrow.
