Apple has just completed its first 2021 release event with a lot of buzzes. The lunch event delivered iMac with the new pinnacle of technology just like old times with color flavors. The company brought the latest and greatest products and services, and none of them was just a simple upgrade from the previous generation.
New iMac 2021
The most radical change happened in the iMacs. Apple’s all-in-one now has an extremely thin design, only 11 millimeters thick on the main part of the body. The new iMac 24-inch screen houses all the components of the device but does not show any type of bump or protuberance.
This happened because Apple abandoned the Intel x86 chips to use the M1 itself, the same that the company had already put in the last MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. The new iMac will be sold in seven bright colors, and the 2-meter power cable will be magnetically connected.
The new Apple iMac will be available on the international market from the second half of May and orders will start from the 30th of April with a starting price of US $ 1,299 and the US $ 1,499 with seven bright colors.
New iPad Pro 2021
Apple took great care in the new iPad Pro. Like the new iMac, Apple’s tablet now has an M1 chip, which doubles its processing power compared to the previous generation, according to Apple. This is interesting because the past iPad Pro was already much more powerful than the main competitors, and there was no application in the Apple store capable of stopping “the bug”.
Other new features in the iPad Pro 2021 include Liquid Retina XDR screen in 12.9-inch version, with quality similar to that of the brand’s professional monitor, and 5G connection.
The new iPad Pro with an 11-inch screen and Wi-Fi-only connectivity also hit the international market in the second half of may and orders start from April 30 for $ 799. The 12.9-inch version will start at US $ 1,099, also with Wi-Fi.
In Nepal, the lowest new iPad Pro 11-inch will cost Rs 1,26,000, and the price of the larger model i.e 12.9 inches will start at Rs 1,45,000.
After years of the possibility that Apple could launch a device that would allow it to find “non-smart” objects, such as keys, wallets, and the like, we were finally introduced to AirTags. As the rumors predicted, this is a device that can be found on the same network as “Find my iPhone”. When activating the feature on the cell phone to find the tag, it is even possible to know in which direction the AirTag is and how many meters away.
AirTags also begin to be sold abroad on the 30th of April this month.
Apple TV 4K
Apple has also released a new version of Apple TV. The device now has an A12 Bionic chip, which guarantees much better performance than the previous device. Only the most interesting exoticism is the new remote control.
Formerly hated by many Apple fans, it is now more practical, has more buttons, and can even turn on the TV. It is also possible to calibrate the TV image according to the standards most recommended by the audiovisual industry using the iPhone and Apple TV 4K in a very simplified process. The new device will reach 30 countries in the second half of May, costing 32 GB of base version at the US $ 179 and 64GB will cost around the US $ 199.
iPhone 12 and more
We also had the launch of another color for the iPhone 12 and 12 mini. The Apple device will now be available in purple.
Apple Podcasts has been completely remodeled by the company, allowing listeners to pay a monthly subscription to enjoy the best content available on the platform. Finally, there is also a newness in the Apple Card, the Apple credit card, which now counts the credit score of users differently and now allows the issuance of cards for dependents over 13 years of age.
