Apple’s Unleashed event just wrapped up, and it included pretty much everything we expected. Here are the biggest announcements made during the stream.
New MacBook Pro
Apple revealed the MacBook Pro, with M1 Pro and M1 Max Apple silicon chips, available in 14-inch and 16-inch models. Both models have a new keyboard that has physical function keys replacing the Touch Bar. The 14-inch model starts at $1,999, while the 16-inch model starts at $2,499. Upgrades are available for the chip, SSD, and memory upgrades, with a fully upgraded 16-inch MacBook Pro costing a pricey $6,099.
Mixed feelings on the notch
The design is noticeably different from previous MacBook Pro's, as the display is now 24 percent thinner at 3.55m thick, and there is a notch at the top of the display, similar to the notch design the iPhone uses. Within the notch, a 1080p webcam is featured, known as the FaceTime Camera, which has an “advanced image signal processor with computational video.”
AirPods 3 are official
Apple has finally announced the highly anticipated AirPods 3, and they have "an all-new design inside and out." Taking inspiration from the AirPods Pro, they feature smaller stems and touch controls along with an increased battery life of 30 hours.
