Apple technology is iconic for many digital consumers. They only use it and nothing more. On the one hand, this is understandable – this is its own closed operating system that can work in conjunction with third-party services, such as Google. But at the same time, as the developers assure, it is less prone to hacking. On the other hand, the software itself is designed in such a way that it does not need a lot of RAM and video memory to function adequately. In this article, we will look at the MacBook Pro: what did the Cupertinos roll out this time?
The first thing our eyes fall on when we open the MacBook is the bangs, which have already begun to be done everywhere. It has already become a trademark of Apple. Naturally, the design and colour of the iPhone 13 migrated to the laptop platform. A kind of rebranding of the design, which was borrowed from the iPhone 5S. This is not good and not bad – for an amateur.
This year, the company has updated not only the design, but also increased the diagonal of the younger model compared to the previous generation. Instead of 13.3” by 14.2”, and left the older version of Pro with a 16” monitor.
What’s more, Apple has switched to miniLED for 2021 MacBook Pro models and uses adaptive ProMotion like the iPhone 13 Pro or 13 Pro Max. The standard display brightness is 1000 nits and the maximum brightness is 1500 nits.
The main processor for both models is Apple Silicon M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max. According to some analysts, the graphics processor from Cupertino is superior in speed to the analogue that is on board the PS5.
It is worth noting that Apple is sharpened more for the work of various kinds of designers, for which it is valued, but it is very mediocre when playing heavy game graphics. Therefore, if you need to create a game – MacBook, and if you play, then specialized game consoles or laptops of the corresponding series.
Also, the design has been updated with new ports. We added an HDMI 2.0 port, which made life much easier for people who want to connect a laptop to a TV and watch movies through it or work on a big screen. Finally, an SD card reader appeared. Now it’s much more convenient to drop a photo, not to dance with a tambourine around the hub. And another nice addition was the resumption of MagSafe 3.
Also, the laptop received an updated 3.5 mm jack, support in the form of professional headphones. Now you can enjoy studio-quality music right on your Mac.
The main innovation was the return of MagSafe charging for the new line. Now there is a third series, which is paired with USB-C.
Also, the current generation of laptops from Apple will come without the Touch Bar, which did not live up to the expectations placed on it by the company. Physical keys have been added instead.
