Apple “Unleashed” New Tech

Yesterday, Apple introduced a lot of new goodies, including new MacBook Pros.

 

Design Changes for MacBook Pro

Apple will offer 14-inch and 16-inch options for the new laptops.

The most notable change is the lack of a touch bar. Instead, the new MacBooks will feature a full-size function row. 

In addition, the new models will have:

  • an HDMI port
  • three Thunderbolt ports
  • a headphone jack
  • an SD card slot

The MagSafe charger is also making a return. The camera is updated to 1080p and, supposedly, performs better in low-light conditions. 

The 14-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,999. The 16-inch option starts at $2,499. Both will be available for pre-order on Monday.

New M1 Chips

Another big announcement – the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. 

The M1 Pro CPU is supposedly 70% faster than the original version, the M1. Furthermore, it features 32GB of unified memory and 200GB of memory bandwidth.

In contrast, the M1 Max has up to 64GB of unified memory.  As for CPU, both support up to 10 cores. GPU-wise, the Pro accepts up to 16-core, while the Max – up to 32-core.

AirPods Get an Upgrade

The third generation of AirPods also gets a new design. The most notable aspect of it is the stems – they are much shorter than before. Users can also enjoy a “force sensor” for controlling incoming calls and music.

The new model is water and sweat-resistant, with improved battery life. It also features Spatial audio support, adaptive EQ, head-tracking capabilities, and more.

The price is $179, with pre-orders on the table from Monday.

More Colors For HomePod Mini

31% of America’s broadband households own a smart speaker – and now they can get one in fun colors.

The HomePod Mini gets three new options – blue, yellow, and orange.

They will work with Apple Music Voice subscription – the cheaper version of Apple Music. Users can access it via Siri.

The price is the same as before – $99. The new colors will hit the shelves in November. 

The voice plan will be $4.99 per month and it will be available in 17 countries. It is expected to launch later this fall.
