Apple introduced a series of new products, including iPad Pro, AirTags, iMac … at the event just ended a few hours ago.
“Spring Loaded” is the first event in 2021 for Apple. As expected by many people, “defective apple” brings attractive products such as AirPod Pro, iMac, AirTags …
The new iMac reminds people of the late 1990s thanks to the eye-catching range of colors. These 7 colors remind the iMac G3, making Apple’s computer stand out from the competition.
The ultra-thin iMac measures just 11.5mm and is shaped like a large iPad attached to a pillar. It uses 24 inch screen, 4.5K resolution with 11.3 million pixels, maximum brightness 500 nits, True Tone technology, anti-glare coating. Inside is an ARM-based M1 chip with 8 CPU cores and 7 or 8 GPU cores depending on the configuration you choose. In addition, there is also a 1080p camera, 6 speakers, 2 Thunderbolt ports, Wi-Fi 6 support. The more expensive version has 2 more USB C ports and 1 1Gbps Ethernet port.
Each iMac comes with a keyboard of the same color, equipped with Touch ID for login and authentication. The keyboard itself has its own security chip, which connects directly to the M1 chip to create an end-to-end encryption channel for fingerprint data.
The starting price of the new iMac is $ 1,299 (4 green, pink, blue, silver), starting from April 30 and expected shipping from the second half of May. USD has 7 colors.
The new iPad Pro features an M1 chip, 50% faster CPU performance and 40% faster GPU performance than the A12Z chip. You can configure the device up to 16GGB and up to 2TB of internal memory. The device also has a Thunderbolt port for the fastest transfer speeds of 40Gbps, connected to a 6K resolution display.
Overall, the new iPad Pro isn’t a major upgrade over its predecessor. One of the most notable is that it can connect to 5G and comes in white. As with previous generations, iPad Pro comes in 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes, priced at $ 799 and $ 1,099 respectively.
After years of speculation, AirTags was officially introduced during the event. They accept orders from April 23 for $ 29 and are expected to ship from April 30. This accessory helps the user to find out which item AirTags are attached to. It attaches to everything from keys to purses to bags.
AirTags are round, imprinted with the Apple logo. However, the company says it will carve the designs according to everyone’s wishes for free. AirTags is compatible with the Find My app, which uses augmented reality to show the location of a lost device.
Apple TV 4K
Apple also refreshed the Apple TV 4K model, equipped with the A12 Bionic chip. The company is committed to improved video and photos thanks to a new feature that relies on iPhone sensors for TV calibration, for more natural colors and better contrast. Apple also upgraded the remote control, removing the unpopular touchpad design over the years.
Apple’s new set-top box starts at $ 179, pre-order from April 30. The remote control costs 59 USD.
