The 10th-anniversary version of the iPhone was finally announced yesterday. Known as the iPhone X, the features available on the phone is a testament of Apple’s innovation over the years. The iPhone X is one of the most highly-anticipated smartphones released in 2017, not because it offers anything innovative or new by industry standards but because Apple has made big changes to the iPhone X compared to what we are so used to its predecessors.
After Apple unveiled its three latest devices – the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and the iPhone X, many fans have noticed that a number is missing. So, where’s the iPhone 9? With that, Apple does seem to have skipped a device, which is similar to how Microsoft skipped launching its Windows 9. If Apple wanted to maintain the proper number progression and mark its 10th anniversary of iPhone, then they would have had to unveil 3 new iPhone devices this month – iPhone 8, 9, and the X.
Our smartphones and tablets are incredibly compact and powerful, but they do not provide a full computing experience in terms of performance and capabilities go – however close they may be. Apple, wanting that to happen, has gone and done it: they have put a complete computing experience into the lightest and thinnest MacBook ever made – without most compromises.
The ultra-thin and super-compact Apple Macbook is rather capable and powerful thanks to Intel’s brand new line of sixth generation Intel M Core processors. The ultra-compact body of the Apple MacBook weighs just under a kilogram and its thickness (or thinness) is only 13.1 mm. It slides easily into every bag and even in your jacket if you are feeling a little bit adventurous!
Say goodbye to borders with the new Apple MacBook and its beautiful edge-to-edge screen. Under that beautiful edge-to-edge display sits the beautiful 12-inch Apple Retina Display with a large resolution of 2304 x 1440 (2K).
The term ‘Retina Display’ is coined by Apple to describe an incredibly large pixel count in a digital display; the pixel count is dense enough that the human eye is unable to discern each individual pixel from the others. Because it is Apple’s thinnest Retina display yet, images and videos on the Apple MacBook appear with amazingly rich vibrant details and colours that seem to pop off the beautiful glass display with crystal clarity.
Most compact laptops do away with full-sized keyboards in an effort to fit more components and also to maintain the compact form factor, but the Apple MacBook does not compromise by offering the full-size keyboard experience. Everyone will be able to enjoy the exact same layout and size of the standard Apple MacBook Pro and Air keyboards without compromises. The only difference is that the keyboard’s key travel is very short, but still offers a very distinct tactile feel when typing for longer periods of time.
The Intel Core M processor that is used in the Apple MacBook is one of the latest innovations from Intel. It is a very efficient processor that consumes very little power; efficiently powering your laptop for all of your tasks efficiently without wasting any power or having a high battery drain. The Intel M does not generate a lot of heat as well, resulting in a great thin form factor that is fan-less. This makes the Apple MacBook both ultra-thin and ultra-quiet.
