On October 30th in the Brooklyn Academy of Music, instead of their usual home of Cupertino, California, Apple announced three additions to their lineup of innovative gadgets: iPad Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Mini.
The biggest difference to the iPad Pro compared to the earlier model is the screen. The new edge-to-edge liquid retina display includes true to life color for a more vivid and lifelike display experience. Weighing one pound this iPad is the thinnest one yet making it the most portable choice. Face ID is now featured on the iPad Pro allowing the user to now “pay with a glance” combining the Face ID feature with Apple Pay. Although portable, Apple has not compromised on efficiency with the smartest most powerful chip (A12x bionic chip) powering the iPad Pro making it faster than most PC laptops.
The powerful chip allows the iPad to break barriers in tablet usage with five trillion operations per second and enables advanced machine learning. This iPad is so powerful it’s able to power big software such as Adobe Photoshop. The multitasking while on FaceTime feature on the iPad allows users to search the web and run apps while having their FaceTime window minimized to the corner of the screen for efficient communication. An exciting add-on to the iPad Pro is the newly released Apple Pencil that can now change writing tools with a double tap and attach to the iPad Pro magnetically for pairing and charging.
It’s been years since the Macbook Air has seen any upgrades, so this new model is much anticipated by Apple consumers. The first upgrade takes play on the display. With four times as many pixels on the HD display, text and emails look so clear as if you are reading them on print. If being compared to the previous generation of MacBook Air, the new model has 48% more color making everything more vibrant and life-like. Advanced security is another plus on this new generation MacBook Air with the addition of a Touch ID sensor. The Touch ID sensor enables users to unlock documents, system settings, pay online and many other features without entering another password. This MacBook Air doesn’t only look great it is also great for the environment, made entirely of recycled aluminum.
Big power has always come in small packages, and the Mac Mini proves it. This small device has the power to run home automation and giant render farms. New 6-core and quad core processors allow this device to power a desktop to optimum speed despite a large number of programs running. Faster 2666MHz DDR4 memory up to 64GB makes this the perfect tool to store memories and heavy loads of documents.
