Last month, Apple held its big annual iPhone event— and it was pretty disappointing. It had none of the surprises Apple is known for, and the company even discontinued a handful of beloved products, something many people didn't see coming.
But Apple knocked its big iPad and Mac showcase on Tuesday out of the park.
At its second big event of the fall, in Brooklyn, New York, Apple debuted three redesigned products: a new MacBook Air, a new Mac Mini, and two new iPad Pro models.
The MacBook Air and Mac Mini were two updates that were a long time coming. The last meaningful Mac Mini update, for instance, was more than 1,400 days ago.
So Apple delivered in this very basic respect by updating these beloved computers — but the new products actually look excellent.
The new MacBook Air has a Retina display, Touch ID, and USB-C for both power and data transfer — and no Touch Bar, thank goodness. See more...
The new Mac Mini can be configured with six cores and up to 64 GB of RAM, and you can daisy-chain numerous Mac Minis together for all your computing needs.
