It’s not just new iPad Air 2 that Apple unveiled today, but also a new 27-inch iMac with Retina Display. Yeah, you hear that right! The new 27-inch oxide TFT display is what Apple’s calling “Retina 5K,” comes with a 5,120 x 2,880 resolution – thats 67% more pixels than 4K. Even with all of that new screen power, the new iMac is said to be 30 percent more energy efficient. The outer edge is also 5mm thick, keeping the trim frame all the way around.
Yes, Apple’s got a new iPad: the Apple Air 2. The Cupertino boys announced this morning the new iPad with a video showing a pencil being laser shaved down almost in half an guess what? It still can hide the new iPad Air 2. Looking from the right angle of course. But all jokes aside, the new iPad is really thin at only 6.1mm. Phil Schiller told the attendees it’s the world’s thinnest tablet and it’s “18% thinner than the first iPad Air.
Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior VP of software engineering, has just announced that iOS 8.1 is coming next Monday, and will bring Apple Pay compatibility in tow for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. It’ll also bring back the Camera Roll, which should be good news for iPhone users who miss that feature when it was taken away before. Additionally, those who update to the new firmware will get access to the public beta of iCloud Photo Library, which gives you the ability to access the full resolution of all your photos and videos without any downscaling.
Ahead of the iPad event today, Apple unintentionally leaked the specifications for their anticipated upgrades to the iPad Air and iPad mini. The leak was discovered by Mark Gurman who noticed the two devices listed in the iPad User Guide for iOS 8 within iBooks. According to the iBook, the upcoming tablets will feature a TouchID sensor and look identical to their current form. Pricing and availability wasn’t included in the iBook, although we can expect those details to be revealed later today alongside new Mac hardware and officially releasing OS X Yosemite.
