The Biggest News from Apple's iPad and MacBook Event


Apple has unveiled a new iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini. The 2018 MacBook Air now has 13.3-inch Retina display, butterfly keyboard, Touch ID, and 50 percent narrower bezels. The trackpad is also 20 percent larger, the stereo speakers that are 25 percent louder, and Siri is built in. The headphone jack remains, along with two USB-C ports.

The Mac mini saw an upgrade to 8th Generation 6-core or quad-core processors for up to five times faster performance. It can support up to 64GB RAM or an all-flash storage of up to 2TB SSD, and it comes with two USB-A ports, four Thunderbolt / USB-C ports, and an Ethernet port. Visually, the Mac mini looks pretty similar to the older version from four years ago, but with a new space gray finish.

Apple also announced a refreshed iPad Pro - the home button is now gone, and the new iPad Pro comes with Face ID support. The device has a 12.9-inch display, but the body is much smaller and thinner than the predecessor. It supports the new gesture navigations introduced with the iPhone X. Inside, the new iPad Pro is 35 percent faster overall and claims “all-day” battery life.
