For years, Apple has promised the world it would “continue innovating.” With the recent unveiling of new products like the iPad mini and the Retina display for the MacBook Pro and the iPad, we are confident that Apple is standing behind its promise. Earlier today, during one of its infamous Keynote addresses, Apple unveiled exciting new products and cutting-edge upgrades to existing favorites.
With a warm welcome to the iPad family, consumers were introduced to the iPad mini. The small tablet stands at 7.9 inches tall and weighs 0.68 pounds, making it 53 percent lighter than its older sibling, the iPad. The mini’s display has a screen resolution of 1,024×768 pixels, which will allow existing apps to work across both screen sizes of the tablets. The device houses a dual-core A5 processor, a 5-megapixel iSight camera, and a FaceTime high definition (HD) camera. It is equipped with ultrafast wireless, expandable LTE support and a 10-hour battery life. Business and consumer enterprise users alike will appreciate the compactness of the thinner, lighter product that was designed to fit in one hand.
Not to be outdone by its “mini,” the iPad also received attention with impressive upgrades, namely the Retina display. This stunning display was constructed to diminish “pixelation,” meaning that the human eye will not be able to detect the pixels at a typical viewing distance. The iPad fourth generation comes equipped with a dual-core A6X chip with quad-core graphics processor, which will provide twice the performance and processing as its predecessor. Like the mini, the fourth generation tablet features ten hours of battery life, FaceTime HD, expandable LTE support, ultrafast wireless, and the new Lightning connector.
Tablets, big and small, were not the lone stars on the docket. The iMac and MacBook Pro were given makeovers as well. The popular 13-inch MacBook Pro now comes furnished with Retina display that illustrates over four million pixels, and all-flash storage in an even more compacted and light design. The portable notebook is now 20 percent thinner and almost one pound lighter than its current model. But, perhaps the biggest change for Apple’s line of personal computers came with the remodel of the iMac. Showcasing an ultra-thin design that is only 5mm at the edge, and a clear display with reduced reflection (75 percent less than its precursor), many iMac users can agree that the new and improved model was worth the wait. The newest edition also features the latest quad-core graphics, and a new storage option called Fusion Drive that gives flash-like performance with the capacity of a hard drive.
Lastly, the Mac Mini also debuted revisions at the reveal. The revived machine now boasts a dual or quad-intel Core i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge processor with Intel HD Graphics 4000, and up to 16GB of RAM. In addition the Macintosh device has four USB ports, a Gigabit Ethernet, a HDMI port, and an SD slot. These refreshments to the most affordable Mac allow for more capability in its outstanding performance for everyday use.
