Anyone else notice that the Apple logo on the back of the Magic Keyboard cover is horizontal? Been wanting them to add that for years. pic.twitter.com/227WvC1Icz

In addition, discoveries made in the code for iPadOS 13.4 Golden Master published yesterday suggest that it will be possible to see the remaining charge of the battery of the Magic Mouse, the Magic Trackpad and other mice connected in Bluetooth with the iPad in the Batteries widget located in the Today view on the iPad. This view is accessible by sliding your finger from left to right on the first page of the tablet’s home screen.
In addition, with regard to the new MacBook Air, the latter is equipped with the Wi-Fi 5, known by the name of 802.11ac. In addition, the MacBook Air 2020 has a 720p front camera.
As an anecdote, Apple also used the Wi-Fi 5 and an 720p webcam on the 16-inch MacBook Pro released last November (see article: Apple’s new 16-inch MacBook Pro still uses a 720p webcam and no Wi-Fi 6). Which, of course, raised a lot of criticism from users.
