If it is slightly worse and cheaper, the consumers will buy it.
Not only supporting multiples a pain for a company, but supporting a single one by yourself. Apple tried being the main user of a chip and it didn't go well for the PPC.
Which is why I see Apple selling some variant to the market at large and not hording a single chip for themselves.
Think of it this way using iPods as an example -- if you have 70% of the market are you happy with your chip business only supplying only 70% of the market.
Or would you like to make even more money and capture a significant share and supply chips to the a big chunk of other 30% also ...

Hey guys, in 4 years time Apple will have released new iPhones with a chip that they custom designed, as well as an Apple tablet, called the iPad. the tablet is a beast. Dual core at 1.4ghz each and quad core graphics. And then they shrunk down the iPad and calls it iPad mini with worse internals 1ghz dual core and quad core graphics, but slower architecture. You heard it here first.
Use a bunch of Apple stuff: iPad 4, iPhone 4s, Apple TV 2, 2011 2.4GHz 15" MBP, Logic Studio 9 w/ Mainstage 2
