After updating its high-end MacBook Pro last May, Apple is tackling its mid-range and MacBook Air. On the other hand, the small 12-inch MacBook disappears from the catalog.
New updates to the catalog of Apple brand computers, which are attacking 13-inch MacBook Pro as well as MacBook Air, with new features. Apple has just added True Tone to its MacBook Air. This function automatically adjusts the intensity of the screen colors according to the ambient light, so that they are as natural as possible. The laptop also saw its price drop by 100, from 1,349 1,249, for the first price. Made more affordable than its predecessor, lacking a Retina screen, the latter disappears from the catalog.
As for the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, no price change, but the configuration of the model changes somewhat. As with the MacBook Air, the computer becomes compatible with True Tone. In addition, Apple integrates the Touch Bar, Touch ID and Apple T2 chip into the laptop. Unfortunately, some disadvantages of its 2017 predecessor are still there, such as the fact that there are still only two USB-C sockets.
Good news from the side of the keyboard, however. And this concerns both the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro. Apple recently announced an end to the butterfly keys that tended to hang. It remains to be seen whether the new scissor system will be more efficient than its predecessor.
As for the 12-inch MacBook, it simply disappears. Despite somewhat limited performance, it had many advantages such as being silent or weighing less than a kilo and therefore being easily transportable.
