    AirTag without U1

    Can anybody tell me why reviewers don't mention this? How will the AirTags work with devices that don't have the U1 chip? How will the precision finding operate? Will those devices lack that feature completely? Could someone clarify this?

    Is M1 app opening really that snappy though?

    I think the depiction of snappiness showed on video on today's event was misleading. I've been using M1 Mac Mini 16GB 256GB since it came out but when I open my apps, it nearly not as snappy as shown on apple's video. In my computer at least it takes half a second to open apps like messages etc...

    2021 iMac

    Its pretty obvious that the 2021 imac will get a new refresh. Like its been 8 years since they've stuck with the same aluminium body design. Still does look timeless and new but needs a refresh. But is it possible that apple installs the m1 chip or a new apple silicon processor in the imac?
