Apple’s ‘One More Thing’ event: Apple Will Open A Box of Surprises of New Products

Mac 2020

Apple’s ‘One More Thing’ event handled us to number of new products. The new MacBook Air (2020), new MacBook Pro 13-inch (2020) and Mac mini (2020) were all unveiled, and they’re all powered by the brand new Apple M1 chip.

Why must you care what chipset your MacBook runs? Good query. By creating its personal ‘Apple silicon’ chips, Apple may have nearly full control over the {hardware}, in addition to the software, that powers its Macs and MacBooks.

This should hopefully lead to better-optimized units that supply improved efficiency, faster boot instances and longer battery lives. It could be essentially the most exciting change to Macs and MacBooks for a really long time – Apple definitely thinks so, but you’ll have to attend for our full, in-depth opinions to see if the {hardware} can live as much as the bold claims.

Apple event: as it happened

All times are in PST

11:01: OK… one more thing for us. We have data on the new MacBook Air (2020), new MacBook Pro 13-inch (2020), Mac mini (2020) and the M1 processor, so verify these out!

10:47: Oh and one more factor… it is the man from these previous adverts. And that is the top! We’ll be getting these new units in soon so we will put Apple’s claims to the take a look at.

10:46: Tim Cook is now summing up. Promises that in 2021 Apple will convey extra experiences. And that is it! Lots of data, numerous comparisons, lots of claims.

10:44: Oh and the chime is back. For people who care about that.

10:43: So, to sum up:
New MacBook Air with M1
– Begins at $999

New Mac mini with M1
– Begins at $699

New MacBook Pro 13 with M1
– Begins at $1299

Order: Starting today, November 10
Available: Next week

10:43: Ooh you can order them at this time! And will be out there next week. Big Sur is dropping on Thursday.

Mac 2020

10:41: Starts at $1,299. Improved studio mics and webcam. The ‘ultimate expression of what the M1 can do’. Guess that rules out it coming to the 16-inch MacBook Pro for the moment, then.

10:39: “World’s fastest compact pro notebook”. And has a ‘merely amazing’ battery life of 20 hours for video playback. Longest battery life ever in a Mac. Apple is usually fairly good with its battery life guarantees, so that is exciting.

10:38: Powerful efficiency, smooth design and 2.8 times quicker efficiency. Thrice quicker than a Windows laptop in its class, in line with Apple. Apple is being very vague about its comparisons, to be honest. Doesn’t mean a lot.

10:37: And now.. it’s the MacBook Pro 13-inch! It gets an M1 upgrade as well.

Mac 2020

10:35: $699. That’s $100 lower than the earlier model – which we had been massive followers of. Affords an ‘monumental’ bounce inefficiency.

10:33: You may play games, like Baulder’s Gate III, and it is 1/10th the scale, however 5 instances quicker than prime selling desktops in its value vary.

10:32: Mac mini is back! Yey, love the Mac mini. M1 involves Mac mini with a thrice quicker CPU, and 6 instances the graphics efficiency.

10:29: Best in class safety with TouchID and Apple Pay due to M1 and macOS Large Sur. Begins at $999! Similar because the last model.

10:28: SSDs are as much as 2x quicker due to M1 and newest flash tech. And there is no fan. So the brand new Air is totally silent. That is nice information for anybody who hates a whirring laptop computer! As much as 15 hours of wi-fi net browsing, and 18 hours of video (6 hrs more than earlier model). Longest battery life in a MacBook Air.

10:27: That is the largest graphical leap for a MacBook Air, Apple claims. So you can game, edit 4K movies, faster than 98% of PC laptops – once more a large claim.

Mac 2020

10:25: It’s the MacBook Air. ‘Will fully redefine what a skinny and lightweight MacBook can do.’ The world’s finest promoting 13-inch laptop computer, apparently.

10:24: So, Large Sur seems to be prefer it’ll run fairly properly on the brand new M1 {hardware}! And now we’re on to the first Mac with M1! What can it be?!

10:21: New Macs do one thing no mac can do before – run iPhone and iPad apps instantly in your Mac – due to M1 chip. This was one thing many people had been trying ahead to. Now we’re getting a video of some app devs speaking about what this means for them and their apps. Took some devs a day, apparently, to switch their apps to Apple Silicon.

10:20: One app can run on all of your Macs – basically there might be two variations of the app, one for Intel Macs, one for M1-based Macs. Thanks to Rosetta 2. Seamlessly runs apps constructed for Intel chips on M1. And apps really run better on M1?!?! Witchcraft if true.

Mac 2020

10:18: Craig’s now speaking about graphics efficiency and power effectivity. Comes with hardware-verified safe boot, plus other advanced safe features. macOS Large Sur is constructed from its ‘core’ to benefit from M1.

10:15: Now Craig Federighi is speaking about macOS Big Sur, and how properly it performs on the M1 chip. Macs now instantly boot up, just like iPhones and iMacs.

Mac 2020

10:14: ‘World’s fastest integrated graphics’ Apple claims. That is a daring one. It is an 8-core GPU, and “Most superior graphics processor Apple has created, which provides “twice the  graphic efficiency than PC chip at third of the power.” Hmmm. Again, massive discuss from Apple.

10:12: They’re throwing a LOT of jargon out in the meanwhile, and very rapidly as properly. Apple’s speaking a giant game with these CPUs. Can it deliver, though?

10:11: “Delivers performance at lowest doable power – world’s finest CPU efficiency per watt”

10:10: That is an 8-core CPU, with it claims, ‘World’s quickest CPU core’. With 4 high-performance cores and 4 high-efficiency cores. It is basically a BIG.little design we’ve seen earlier than in cellular ARM chips.

Mac 2020

10:07: The M1 chip. “The next generation of Mac”

10:09: John Ternus is now right here. Explaining how Apple Silicon has been powering Apple units for years now. And it is coming to Macs.

10:06: First mention of Apple Silicon! This video is clearly not live, however pre-recorded.

10:05: Now getting a nice video of people utilizing Macs in varied areas. Apple is clearly nonetheless proud of its Mac units.

10:04: ‘We love the Mac, it’s in our DNA’ says Cook. ‘Mac business grew by 30% last quarter.’

10:03: Tim Cook’s right here and has talked about that Apple has introduced extra units than ever earlier than, including the Apple Watch SE and Series 6 and iPhone 12s. That is the third main launch occasion this year, which considering the circumstances, is fairly impressive.

10:02: And we’re on. Some good shorts of Apple’s campus in Cupertino. Not been. Appears… clear.

09:59: Almost there! Remember to check out our how to watch Apple’s One Extra Factor occasion information to observe along at dwelling

09:56: We’re not simply around 5 minutes from the occasion kicking off. I’ve bought my dinner (bear in mind, I am within the UK so it’s not that odd to be eating now), and can stuff it into my face whereas Apple stuffs all our faces with Mac and MacBook goodness. Type of.

08:57: With Apple moving its Macs and MacBooks to its personal processors, many individuals could also be wondering if this implies Apple and Intel are parting methods without end. We do not think so. Each corporations have been at pains to say that they are continuing to work together on merchandise, and it is possible that Apple’s high-end productivity machines, just like the 16-inch MacBook Pro and Mac Pro, will proceed to have Intel processors – for now, at least.

08:10: Rumors suggest we’ll be seeing new MacBooks, but it’s also possible that Apple is engaged on new Macs as properly. While we might not see new Macs or iMacs at this time, we might get hints about once we can expect desktop Mac PCs to reach with ‘Apple silicon’ processors.

Apple Store down

06:44: Well, the Apple Store is now down. This normally occurs when Apple is about to launch new products, however it’s annoying when you wanted to purchase one thing else, I suppose.

06:28: Apart from new MacBooks and Macs, there are rumors of Apple AirTags being proven off at this time. These little units will apparently clip on to your belongings, and when you lose these gadgets, it’s best to have the ability to use your iPhone, Mac or iPad to seek out them. It sounds fairly helpful, however hopefully they aren’t essentially the most exciting products Apple will present at this time, otherwise, I am gonna simply go back to mattress.

05:00: Apple is up and tweeting – well its social media staff is. There’s only one tweet, and it is about at this time’s occasion. Nonetheless no clues on what the event could be about (however we’ve a good idea).

04:00: It is (most likely) new Mac and MacBook day at this time! Yey! Now, earlier than you get too involved, I’m not really awake at 4am to cowl the Apple occasion. I am excited, however not that excited. Whereas this liveblog will be in PST time, I am really based within the UK, the place it is actually 12pm. A much more respectable time to write about Apple. And nearly time for lunch. Yum.
