New Apple products

New Apple products:


Apple's new iPads and Macs, surprisingly presented on Wednesday, offer some interesting innovations.

The new hardware from Cupertino presented this week came as a real "surprise" for many users.

In the meantime, some detailed information has accumulated that is worth looking at in-depth. Apple, as it turns out, deserves unreserved praise in some places, in other blames.

New MacBook Air 2020:


So the new MacBook Air 2020 finally comes with the improved scissor mechanism keyboard and also offers faster chips up to a Core i7 with four cores and Turbo Boost up to a maximum of 3.8 GHz. 

The graphics performance has been increased - according to Apple - by 80 per cent and the devices can now finally control 6K monitors such as Apple's Pro Display XDR, there is also better stereo sound and three microphones for voice recordings.

However, what has not been changed is the iSight webcam integrated into the edge of the screen.

This still has to make do with poorly resolved 720p, which gives an embarrassing picture in the age of video conferences from the home office.

Here Apple only grants its users 802.11ac aka Wi-Fi 5 - and not the faster Wi-Fi 6. New MacBook Air iPad Pro 2020 - both in the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models.

Previously Apple only had 802.11ax on the iPhone 11. With suitable routers, it offers higher transmission speeds, energy savings and better latency.

Connections can also be more stable. WPA3 as an encryption protocol is also mandatory for Wi-Fi 6.

iPad Pro improvements:


Apple's new U1 chip was also freshly installed in the iPad Pro 2020. This provides access to the so-called ultra-wideband standard (UWB, ultra-wideband).

This makes it possible to locate objects with suitable trackers - which Apple will probably be launching as "AirTags" on the market - with extreme precision, the file transfer service AirDrop is (slightly) improved in iPadOS and iOS.

Apple has also made the configuration options for even larger flash media a little cheaper.
