Apple put itself in a unique position before the start of this year's Worldwide Developers Conference. Not necessarily one it had to find a way out of, per se. However, a lot of people expected Apple to do just that.
Apple's transition to its own M1 processor for the Mac (and iPad Pro!) lineup has gone pretty smoothly so far. However, things may start to get a bit rocky as the company continues to lean away from Intel's processors. Namely, when it comes to features.
Word on the street is that Apple is working on a slightly tweaked, slightly improved version of its original M1 processor for a new MacBook Pro. Expectations were that Apple would unveil the new machine at the keynote for this year's WWDC, but that didn't happen. So, while we wait, the rumor mill is still working out the details.
It's that time of year again. We're just a few days away from Apple executives (and probably a few others) talking about what's next for its major platforms at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference. And, as usual, there's a lot of expectations swirling around the company.
Your dream desktop has landed! The new 24-inch iMac powered by the Apple M1 chip runs circles around the previous Intel-based 21.5-inch model, but that's hardly the only thing it's got going for it. Watch our handy video tips highlighting some of its best features.
Apple refreshed the iPad Pro on April 20, 2021, giving its pro-branded tablet lineup a significant speed boost with its in-house Mac chip, the M1. Whether you're on the fence about buying a 12.9-inch iPad Pro or you already own one, be sure to watch our hands-on video walkthrough.
"Why Mac?" Well, that's a good question! And now Apple has a dedicated webpage to answer it.
One of the major feature bumps for the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro is its mini-LED display, which Apple calls the Liquid Retina XDR display. And now we learn why the smaller, 11-inch model didn't get the same feature.
The new iPad Pro with the M1 processor starts arriving to early adopters on Friday, and will be available in some stores (depending on available stock) starting on the same day. Before that happens, though, the reviews are now in for Apple's newest iPad Pro refresh.
With the new iMac going on sale this Friday, May 21, review embargoes are up. And it looks like Apple has yet another hit on its hands.
It's almost May 21, which means it's almost launch day for Apple's new products. And Apple is here to keep the new products fresh in our minds ahead of that day.
If early CPU scores for the new 24-inch iMac powered by Apple's M1 chip are anything to go by, shoppers can expect a substantial speed increase over the previous generation.
