Apple has some of the best and most exciting events. Everyone is usually very excited when the invites go out and yesterday’s Apple event did not disappoint.
The event was led by Apple’ CEO, Tim Cook. Cook started off the event with some interesting statistics like the fact that over 700 million iPhones have been sold, claiming that iPhone is now the most popular smartphone in the world.
Here is everything you need to know:
The New Mac
Cook started off saying that iPhone and iPad have changed the definition of portability, which has created the need for smaller laptops. The new Macbook (its name wasn’t revealed at yesterday’s apple event) is the thinnest and lightest Mac ever. It weighs just under 1kg and is only 13mm thick. It comes with a 12″ Retina display and 2 304 x 1 440 pixel resolution. Apple claims that it will have a 30% longer battery life than previous MacBooks, which translates into 9 hours of wireless web use and 10 hours of video.
What’s really cool about the new MacBook is its powerful Intel Core M processor that is capable of speeds of up to 1.3GHz and doesn’t have a fan. There will be three colour options: silver, space grey and gold. The new MacBook will start shipping in April and will cost about $1 299 (about R16 000).
