Apple Updates MacBook Air, Mac Mini and iPad Pro

One of these computers is faster than the other. Which it is will surprise you One of these computers is faster than the other. Which it is will surprise you

It offers a new "USB-C connector, Gigabit-class LTE, and up to 1TB of storage to enable powerful new mobile workflows".

The MacBook Air now includes a new Retina display, Apple's T2 security processor that handles tasks such as Touch ID and real-time encryption, the new Intel i5 CPU, a selection of SSD storage and the larger force-touch trackpad that can be clicked anywhere. But with the iPad Pro's new marketing direction emphasizing its capability of being used with an attachable keyboard, the tech giant may be taking a step back to reassess its current direction. Each new iPhone or iPad generation features new silicon made by Apple, and the iPad Pros come with an even better version of the A12 Bionic that powers the iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and iPhone XS Max.

The lack of Qi compatibility was uncovered by ZDNet, who wanted to check what people were actually getting for their £120. This is because it takes advantage of the TrueDepth camera system to accurately map and recognize the face. It can no longer connect to the side of the device (that's reserved for the Pencil) and now uses a magnetic connection on its rear panel.

"You should only get a new iPad Pro if you're gonna be pushing its power".

There's no question about it; the iPad Pro packs a chip ready to deliver the kind of performance competitors can only dream of.




You can also save lots of time by connecting the new iPad Pro to a camera as transfer speeds will now hit 10 gigabits per second, sucking down high-resolution photos in a pleasingly fast fashion.

Pocket-lint's Stuart Miles found how the switch to USB Type-C means that you can use the same charger from your MacBook Pro to charge the new iPad as well.

iMore: "What's gone is the 3.5mm headphone jack".

"This tablet is excellent, and easily the best Apple has ever made - but you'll need to know how to use it to get the best out of it".

Some potential iPad Pro buyers might be won over by changes to the Apple Pencil alone. Alongside the new hardware came iOS 12.1 and macOS 10.14.1, which add the delayed Group FaceTime feature, plus smaller updates to watchOS 5.1.1, tvOS 12.1, and iOS 12.1 for HomePod. Now it needs the accessories, the keyboards and trackpads, and the inputs, and maybe a more advanced OS that shows more on screen at once. That means you're getting the 2018 iPad Pro's that has almost the same performance level, in less than half the price of 2018 MacBook Pro. But if you're thinking about spending $799 on the cheapest 64GB 11-inch iPad Pro to replace your laptop, you should really ask yourself what you need a computer to do.
