Even the camera was improved. This computer has a model at 1080p and a sensor which is able to collect more light.

The new iMac have 4 USB-C doors and a magnetic door. It’s used for the charging cable.

This iPad is much faster than the previous one, but the battery is still, anyway, enough efficient (up to 10 hours of autonomy).

The iPad Pro are available in two versions: with the screen of 11 inches and with the screen of 12,9 inches.

The one of 12,9 has a “Liquid Retina XDR”, a panel with LEDs much smaller than the one used usually. The smaller LEDs allow to better regulate the luminosity according with the contrast of the images.

Furthermore, in the new iPads there are even new sensors for the augmented reality. The basic model of 11 inches starts from 899 euros, while the one of 12,9 inches from 1219 euros.

Processor M1

Let’s, lastely, talk about the new processor M1, which is equipped both on the iMac and on the iPad.

We previously mentioned that the new iMac is thinner and more silent than the previous ones. That’s right thanks to the processor M1. Infact, it allows to reduce the space inside the computer and they even need less powerful fans to cool down the components.

Therefore, the introduction of the new chip signed the end of the usage of the processors Intel. The chip M1 was completely planned and developed by Apple.
