Apple just announced an all new iPad Mini, Macbook Pro 13 inch, a new iMac and a new iPad 4.
The new iPad Mini will have a 7.9 inch screen with the new Lightning connector. It has a smaller bezel on the side. It looks like the iPhone 5 will its rounded aluminium sides.
You can think of it as a big iPod Touch. The Pad Mini has an A5 processor. Same as iPod Touch fifth-gen. FaceTime HD camera. 5MP iSight camera and also LTE.
Specs: 7.2mm thick, which is 23 percent thinner than fourth-gen iPad. “thin as a pencil!” It will come in white and slate black colours.
The iPad Mini will not have a Retina display, unlike its bigger brother. The iPad Mini’s screen resolution will 1024×768 just like the iPad and iPad 2. New smart covers have also been released for the iPad Mini.
The iPad Mini does look really small:
The new iPad Mini will come in different storage versions starting from $329 for the 16GB model. The iPad 2 is still available on the Apple Store.
Now the “which iPad do I get?” debate gets hard. Nov 2 availability for Wi-Fi, then cellular two weeks later. Prices of mini and 4th-gen iPad overlap a bit.
Here is what consumers wanted for ages. The new Macbook Pro 13 inch will now have a Retina Display boasting a display resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.
It will start at $1699 for the base model which will have 2.5Ghz dual-core i5 with 8GB RAM and 128GB of memory and will come in two different models according to its processor and memory.
It is 20% thinner. At 3.57 lbs, it is heavier than the Macbook Air but the lightest Macbook Pro. The other specifications are – 29% higher contrast ratio, 75% reduced reflection, IPS w/178 degrees viewing angle. The Macbook Pro will also have a FaceTime HD camera, stereo speakers and a backlit keyboard.
Inside it will have an Intel dual-core i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge, with 7-hour battery. Up to 768GB of Flash, and 8GB of Ram and Intel HD 4000 Graphics.
Apple also announced a new iMac. The last time the iMac got an upgrade was 2 years ago. The new iMac has faster processors for more speed. The new design is razor-thin – it looks as a giant iPad on a stand:
It is 80% thinner than the previous iMac. It will also have no optical drive. The display specifications are
- 2 sizes – 21.5 inch @ 1920 x 1080 or 27-inch at 2560×1440.
128GB of flash storage. And you can plug-in either a 1TB or 3TB HDD. In software these show up as one drive. And it’s built into OS X Mountain Lion. “It just works,” Schiller says. The specs are shown below:
The new iMacs start shipping in November. For the 21.5 inch model with 2.7ghz i5 chip. The 27-inch iMac w/2.9ghz quad core i5 ships for $1,799. They will ship in November and December.
Apple also announced an all new iPad 4. It has a A6X processor. 2X Graphics improvement. It also has 10 hours battery life and FaceTime HD. I am really suprised that Apple is already releasing the new iPad 4. They should have waited. Anyways, it will be priced the same:
Last of all, Apple released iBooks 3. Customers have downloaded more than 400 million books since the store opened. A new option called “continuous scrolling,” lets you flick through a book like you would a story in the browser. The new version has no pages, but continuous scrolling. iBooks 3 also lets you share a passage by twitter or e-mail. It will be available for a free upgrade.
“We told you earlier this year that you’d see some incredible innovation from Apple across the year, innovation only Apple can deliver. We think we kept our promise and we hope you agree,” Cook says.
So that’s it folks. Apple has released a bunch of hardware. This year Apple has released iOS 6 and Mountain Lion. Also the new iPod Touch and iPod Nano, iPhone 5. Refresh of entire notebooks, along with Retina Display models, and the new iMac. Also, an iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad Mini.
