Apple has unveiled a host of new products at its “Unleashed” virtual event on Monday.
The star of the show is an updated MacBook Pro, which will include a new M1 Pro or M1 Max chip. New AirPods with spatial audio have also been unveiled.
The new MacBooks will come alongside the updated MacBook Air, Pro, Mac Mini and iMac that were released with Apple’s M1 chip – the first “Apple Silicon” processor designed by Apple itself rather than Intel.
Apple describes the new M1 chips as the first truly professional version of that chip, bringing yet more performance for more demanding users.
The outside also received a redesign, with an even thinner screen than its predecessor. The MacBook Pro comes in two sizes (14” and 16”) and comes with additional ports for users.
