Apple introduced the new generation iPad Pro and MacBook Air. These are the first devices that became the company’s novelty in 2020. Both products are to be more efficient and offer a much wider range of possibilities than previous generations. Below we present some of the most important changes that this year’s iPad Pro and MacBook Air can boast of.
What’s new in the MacBook Air 2020?
For the first time in history, Apple has equipped the MacBook Air with a tenth generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor with a clock frequency of 1.2 GHz and TurboBoost mode up to 3.8 GHz. This gives us up to a double increase in processor power compared to the previous generation. Thanks to the graphics accelerator (graphics card power supply) Intel Iris Plus, the new MacBook Air now provides up to 80% higher graphics performance. As a result, you’ll be able to not only work on it, but also play and even participate in 3D editing and modelling. Surely everyone will find something for themselves. There was aways a lot of critic for the non-working keyboard, which was a problem for many users. Apple has completely changed the previous type of keyboard by introducing the “scissor” version known from the MacBook Pro.
What’s new in the iPad Pro 2020?
iPad Pro, which was very successful in 2018, has its next version. The new generation offers a new wide-angle camera (the same as found in the iPhone 11) and a LiDAR scanner, which we will mainly use when working on augmented reality (a function that uses the camera to scan our entire environment and allows you to add virtual objects and see them on our screen). What’s new inside this year’s iPad Pro? First of all, the RAM memory was increased to 6GB and disk starts from 128GB to 1TB. The ability to connect a keyboard with a trackpad to an iPad has also been restored, which allows us to transform our device into a portable computer.
The new MacBook Air and iPad Pro – is it worth it?
Apple has once again managed to create the most amazing compact computer on the market. After four years, Apple has improved its shortcomings. The new product is definitely recommendable. The price that we will pay for the basic configuration is 4999 PLN. Depending on the components selected, it can reach up to 11,249 PLN. To sum up iPad Pro, the device comes in two versions. The first, which has a screen size of 11 “and the second with a screen 12.9”. The differences between the old and new iPad are negligible. We can see them in a wide-angle camera, LiDAR scanner, work speed and the ability to transform an iPad into a portable computer. Are the changes introduced in this year’s iPad Pro big enough to encourage us to buy it? The amount we will pay for the iPad Pro 11 “starts from 3899 PLN (128GB, Wi-Fi) and reaches 7199 PLN (1TB and mobile data), while the iPad Pro size 12.9” is exactly 1000 PLN more in each version. Adding to this the price of the keyboard (1499 PLN for the 11 “model, 1699 PLN for the 12.9” model), the total cost that we will pay is similar to the latest MacBook Air. Definitely, the new MacBook Air will be a great choice, and we will have to wait a bit longer for the revolutionary iPad.
