[UNKNOWN] time for holiday shopping.
Apple's got a brand new MacBook Pro, but will that new keyboard be any good?
Plus we have new details on Apple's AR glasses on this week's apple core and the Mac Pro is almost here.
So let's go
For months we've been talking about the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro and now it's real.
It has slimmer bezels to fit in more screen real estate.
And it's a higher-resolution screen than the 15-inch model.
There is a touch bar with a separate physical touch id sensor to the side.
Our real escape key but most importantly a redesigned key board.
For the past few years Apples key board on the Macbook Pro has used a butterfly mechanism.
And it has caused do much trouble for so many users with lots and lots of reports of Stuck keys.
Sorry, I actually typed this on a 15 inch MacBook Pro.
Apple did offer to fix the Mac books that had this issue, but the design wasn't really sturdy enough overall.
So now the company's revamped the keyboard on the new MacBook with what's called a magic keyboard that uses a scissor mechanism.
There's a little rubber dome underneath the keys and there's more travel So the keys set higher than on previous MacBook Pros.
Keys will also be removable and it should make repairs easier.
And to really show you how confident Apple is in the new keyboard design, it doesn't fall under the keyboard service program that's currently listed on Apple's website.
NU Pro is running Intel's knife generation processes and you're going to be getting a bump to the base storage level.
Now starting at 512 gigabytes, you can even go all the way up to an eight terabyte SSD but be prepared to take out several small loans for the privilege.
It's also the first laptop to have AMD's new graphics card.
The 16 inch is heavier than the 15 inch, and that's because there's extra battery.
So Apple says you'll now get 11 hours.
New speakers promise bigger and fuller sound, and the microphones should be improved.
So let's talk price.
It starts at $2400 so this is gonna be a heavy duty machine that's also portable.
Im thinking maybe video producers that need enough ground to run final cut or premier and edit 4K footage.
And of course users that have been frustrated with the previous keyboards.
Unfortunately if you want the new keyboard it's only on the new 16 inch for now.
Its not coming to the 13 inch size that we know of just yet.
And the 15 inch Mac Book Pro is going away.
So it might be a good time to pick one up at a better price before it disappears, as long as you can deal with the keyboard.
I mean keyboard.
And one more tidbit for you.
In an interview with C Net Apple [UNKNOWN] said that we shouldn't hold our breath for a touch screen Mac Book anytime soon.
courts that engineering effort is better spent on making the Mac be the best keyboard trackpad experience possible.
It's still early days with the new MacBook Pro so stay tuned for the full review once we've had some more time with it.
It feels like I talked about apples AR glasses every week but this time around, we have some more lakes about what to expect.
Bloomberg sources claimed that Apple has delayed the standalone AR headset to 2022, and the glasses into later possibly 2023.
Okay, so no need to panic.
It looks like Apple is taking some baby steps To get this technology ready for prime time.
First up, the 2020 iPad Pro will supposedly have a new jewel camera module that also has a 3D sensor.
So you can reconstruct rooms or object.
Using the tablet.
We may also see this new system on the iPhone 12, later in 2020.
This 3D sensor is supposedly gonna be a more sophisticated version of the Face ID sensor on the current iPhones.
It's apparently been in development for a few years now.
And we know Tim Cook is pushing really hard for augmented reality.
So it's no surprise we're going to see the company take an iterative approach to get things working right.
Now this 3d sensor will kind of be the glue that ties all the AR and VR approaches together.
So then in 2021, or 2022, Apple may be ready to take the wraps of its AR and VR headset.
It will supposedly let you play games, watch video and be in virtual meeting.
A little like you can do in current headsets, like the Oculus Quest.
The glasses will then follow about a year later and will be lightweight.
We still don't know for sure if they'll be powered by your phone or be standalone.
We finally know when we're gonna see the long-awaited Mac Pro.
Apple has just said December, no specific date.
But there are Are a couple of extras to help sweeten the deal for everyone who's been waiting to shell out at least 6000 US dollars for the machine.
You'll now be able to handle six simultaneous streams of 8k video, which is double what Apple originally promised.
At WWDC, and an eight terabyte SSD option will be available.
Someone that does have that kind of cash to splash is Calvin Harris, DJ and producer who accidentally leaks the Mac Pro on his Instagram stories.
On last week's show, we saw some renders of what the next iPhone might look like and some of you were impressed.
Adrian said, looks amazing, I hope this will be real in 2020.
Cash had a good one, by the way, I hear Apple is releasing a camera that apparently will have an iPhone on the front.
Dan was well, I guess a little upset about our timing in reporting.
You're the people who asked retailers to put up Christmas decorations on November 1st, aren't you?
Actually I'm already preparing for Easter.
KiKOMAN has a great suggestion for the iPhone 12M waiting for that small Apple logo to light up.
Yes that would be amazing and Rudy wrote for some colour option I want a blue colored iPhone like a doc cobalt or a sapphire blue.
A comment a straight after my own hot.
Thanks for watching, I would love to hear your thoughts on the new MacBook and those AR glasses and of course I'll share your comments on next week's show.
