Apple’s Mac Event 2016
In just less than 4 hours time, Apple is expected to announced its refreshed computer lines, including the iMac, Macbook Pro, and Macbook Air in its Mac event.
Rumor has it, there will be a thin interactive touchscreen above the keyboard replacing the function keys. The screen will display information of the programs you have opened on your Pro laptop, controlling music and much more. Rumours says it will also feature a 2TB SSD in its lineup. We could also see the new MacBook Pros comes with fewer ports than the current, spotting USB-C and Lightning ports.
It has been 6 years since the Airs been given any updates. It is said that this year, Apple will update just the hardware on the Air and won’t be updating the screen resolution. So, if this pan out, that means there won’t be any Retina version of MacBook Air anytime soon.
Similar to MacBook Airs, iMac only has spec update last year but hasn’t seen any change in design over the last 4 years. In this year’s event, there probably not be a design refresh too instead of Apple probably will release a a minor update with USB-C ports and potentially new AMD chips. Curious to see what Apple have in their sleeve to counter Microsoft with their unveiling Surface Studio.
Not too sure
It is said that Apple is working on the new display and it is expected to have 5K output and new Thunderbolt 3 port. Whether or not it will be announced this weeks it another matter.
Airpods – The newest accessory for iPhone 7, which many has known comes with no headphone jack was supposed to be in the market in late October. Apple then says that it is not ready and will need “a little more time”. In this week’s Mac event, people is expecting they will go on sale.
2 other Apple products namely Mac Pro and Mac Mini are likely won’t be in the keynote at this week’s event.
The event is scheduled to begin at 1am Malaysian time, 10am Pacific time, 1pm Eastern time and 5pm London time. You could also watch the live stream here, the below live stream is hosted by Cnet.
So there’s that. It’s a quick one from Apple’s Mac event this time with 3 new MacBook Pro laptops, a new live TV app for the iPhones, iPads and Apple TV. Stay tuned for in-depth article about the recent announcement from Apple.
