Apple unveils new MacBook Air made of 100% recycled aluminium

Apple unveils new MacBook Air made of 100% recycled aluminium

A few hours ago, Apple has revealed a new entry in its lineup of tablets - the latest iPad Pro model.

Although benchmark tests aren't flawless, the scores still underscore how powerful Apple's chips have gotten.

The credit behind this beastly performance goes to Apple A12X chipset fitted under the hood of iPad Pro.

Apple has been rumored for years to be building a Mac computer based on one of its own ARM chips, which would enable it to greatly increase battery life at the expense of raw power.

"The new 12,9-inch" iPad Pro gets the biggest makeover: smaller bezels make it is significantly more attractive while still offering the screen real estate of traditional computers.

Also, he hopes there's a future of cross-play ahead between the two platforms. As such, the Touch ID fingerprint scanner replaced with Apple's newer Face ID technology.

Joining the iPad Pro at the October keynote was an all-new version of the MacBook Air, a laptop that hasn't received a significant update in years. The technology first appeared on the MacBook Pro line-up in 2015 and had been "overdue" on the Air range, says The Daily Telegraph. The old 13-inch MacBook Air with 128GB storage now retails at Rs 84,900, up from Rs 77,200.

The iPad Pro's 5030 Geekbench single-core speed score is not too far behind the 5053 score a current-generation 15-inch MacBook Pro with an Intel Core i7 processor earns, as pointed out by MacRumors.

The Mac Mini unveiled on Tuesday - the latest version of Apple's high performance mini desktop computer - is also manufactured with completely recycled aluminium and plastic as well.

All model come with flash storage - a faster and more reliable alternative to conventional hard drives - and can be specced with up to 2TB of space, the site adds. Apple has carried over the HDMI and handphone ports from the old model as well.
