Apple Updates MacBook Air, Mac Mini and iPad Pro

The Wrap – November 2, 2018

As The Verge's Nilay Patel points out in his review, despite the USB-C port, external storage devices still don't play any better with iOS 12.1 on the new iPads than they did via Apple's USB-to-Lightning connector on prior devices.

Working from 100 percent recycled aluminum, the Air contains a couple Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports and a headphone jack.

However, it also means the iPad Pro has a similar single-core score to the entry-level MacBook Pro 15-inch with Touch Bar, which boasts a 6-core 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor coupled with 16GB of RAM, and a Radeon Pro 555X with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. A Native Instruments Maschine mk3 audio controller sat in silence.

If you're still trying to figure out the right color for you, I suggest making a trip to your local Apple Store and holding both in your hands to see which one feels right.

Unsurprisingly, prices get even bigger if you fancy the 12.9-inch display iPad Pro, which starts at $999 (£969, AU$1,529) and rises all the way to $1,899 (£1,869, AU$2,869). Remember folks, if you're going to do this, you might want to make sure your floor is nice and soft in case those magnets don't live up to all the hype. As a result, the edges of the screen have become even narrower. However, not everyone calls it a versatile tool. Touch ID resides in the keyboard and can also be used for Apple Pay and to unlock your protected documents.

"The new Pencil does not offer any upgrades in tracking accuracy, speed or detection". The iPad-as-a-PC revolution remains a work in progress. But, unfortunately, the Pencil models are not cross-compatible. The only thing stopping fans from enjoying the new iPad Pro 2018 is its November 7 shipping date, and how far away they need to ship it to everyone's doorstep. "This is due to the pairing and charging process being completely different", Panzarino writes for TechCrunch. "The original Apple Pencil is a terrific product, but the new one nears perfection for the concept". The new iPad features a seven-core GPU, which doubles the performance of the previous models. O'Brien contends that the portability, ease of use, and the growing strength of pro-grade tablets fill a gap between cell phones and laptop devices.

This is the first USB-C hub unveiled specifically for the iPad Pro.

The 2018 iPad Pro with its A12X Bionic CPU handled zooming and panning 100-megapixel images (RAW files are 216MB each, or about 7x the size of a RAW file from a Canon 5D MK IV according to Mann) taken by a Hasselblad H6D-100c easily (check out his video).
