New Custom Chips: The M1 Pro and M1 Max
Rumours calling Apple’s latest custom chips M1X got it all wrong. The newest chips from Apple are the M1 Pro and M1 Max. They are powering its latest MacBook Pros, the Pro chip has 33 billion transistors. While the Max chip has a beefier 57 billion transistors, now that’s a big flex.
A flex that ProMotion on these laptops will be buttery smooth at 120HZ refresh rates. Apple brought Magsafe charging which promises a 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes.
Apple Music New $4.99 Monthly Voice Plan
The Cupertino company launched a newer Music plan called the “Voice”. It costs $4.99 monthly and doesn’t have spatial audio and other premium features on its regular Music plan. This competes directly with Spotify’s music plan. It becomes in 17 countries later in the fall.
Home Pod Mini Has More Colours
Apple’s tiny smart speaker now has more colour options, now in yellow, orange, and blue. It seems like a move by the company to sell more of the speakers, they retail for the same price of $99 in November.
