Apple officially launched the M1, a custom designed, power-sipping system on a chip. Macs with the M1 blow the doors off Intel-processor based models when it comes to performance. Even with blazing speeds, battery life is extremely long with Apple setting new standards for performance per watt.
At a special event held today at the Howard Gilman Opera House in New York City, Apple announced new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with edge-to-edge "Liquid Retina displays," a boosted Mac mini, a new MacBook Air, an updated Apple Pencil with wireless charging, but no AirPower charging mat. Apple fans have been waiting for the AirPower to be released since Apple previewed the device more than a year ago.
