Macbook Air, iPad Pro, and Co: So chic Apple's new eye-catcher

At the event, Apple unveiled its latest MacBook Air, iPad Pro along with its variants, and the new Mac mini. The device came with an edge-to-edge display, a glass trackpad and a machined aluminum and carbon fiber design.

"All of this power is packed into the same size enclosure as before, flawless for customers updating or creating all-new installations where Mac mini is the ideal solution." notes Schiller.

The Cupertino, California, company introduced new versions of the iPad Pro, its higher-end tablet that competes with Microsoft Corp's (MSFT.O) Surface, with thinner bezels and more screen space, along with the face unlock system found on Apple's newer iPhones.

Next year, AppleiPads could have a new kind of 3D camera using a technology called "time of flight", according to a well-respected analyst.

Apple is offering their flagship tablet in new 11 and 12.9 inch forms alongside the 10.5 inch carrying over from previous year. Sir Jony Ive claimed, in a recent interview, that this was due to the engineers finally letting the brand do that through component miniaturization, but in reality it feels like this was only created to give a flat edge to stick the Apple Pencil to. This revelation puts the recent marketing of the iPad Pro as a more miniaturized laptop than a tablet in flawless context.

Apple announced a new iPad Pro or two, but it wasn't the only thing we saw.

There are four storage options available: 64GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB. The 11-inch iPad Pro comes with a price tag of around Rs. 71,900 for the Wi-Fi connectivity model. However, not everyone is a devote Apple-only user. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro starts at Rs 89,900 for the Wi-Fi only model, while the Wi-Fi+Cellular model will set you back by Rs 103,900. The device also comes in a cellular variant, which uses an e-SIM to latch onto the cellular networks.

Apple said the Mac Mini, a small desktop customers provide their own display and accessories for, would add processing power and memory capacity and start at $799, also an increase. Mac Pro with the 3.0 GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon E5 comes at a raised price of Rs 62,000. That's why the new HyperDrive includes a 4K HDMI port.

The iPad Pro is available for pre-order online and will be in stores from November 7.

To go along with the iPad upgrades, the computer company revealed a new version of the Apple Pencil. It means they will have the same IP68 rating as the iPhone XS and XS Max, though the iPhone XR successor could get a bump from IP67 to IP68.
