If you missed Apple's "There's more in the making" October 30 event that focused on new iPad Pro models and Macs or if you just want to rewatch, the event video in its entirety is now available from Apple's YouTube channel, in addition to the Apple Event website.


At the event, which was held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City, Apple unveiled its fall iPad and Mac lineup. The company debuted overhauled iPad Pro models with an edge-to-edge display, no Home button, slim bezels, and a TrueDepth camera system for Face ID.

The new iPads, priced starting at $799 for the 11-inch model and $999 for the 12.9-inch model, feature USB-C instead of Lightning, have no headphone jack, and have a super fast A12X Bionic chip.

Apple also introduced a revamped $1,199 MacBook Air with a Retina display that features slimmer bezels, a smaller body, upgraded Amber Lake chips, a T2 chip, Touch ID, a third-generation Butterfly keyboard, a Force Touch trackpad, and Thunderbolt 3 ports.

The third major product that saw a debut at the October event was an upgraded Mac mini, now available in Space Gray with 8th-generation quad and 6-core Intel chips, up to 64GB RAM, up to 2TB storage space, Thunderbolt 3 support, and a T2 chip for enhanced security. Apple's new Mac mini is priced at $799.

We had extensive coverage of all of Apple's product unveilings yesterday, which is worth checking out in case you missed any of the tidbits that were announced. We've added links to our event-related articles below, so make sure to check those out.

Relive the thrill of the prices!

One thing I noticed was how loud the audience cheered when he mentioned Apple Store employees, which led me to realize that the place was apparently filled with Apple Store employees and why no one had the balls to yell “You've gotta be kidding!” when those prices were announced.

And still no word about AirPower; hoped also that the iPad Pro could be enabled for wirelesss charging. But might physically difficult to place such big device on a wireless charger.

But I love the way they implemented the pencil charging now. Much better compared to gen 1.

Phil wasn't on the stage and Sir Ive wasn't narrating any product video yesterday. Crazy times.
There was a fight between Phil and Tim. Phil wanted 256GB SSD and 16GB Ram as Minimum for the Macbook Air and Mac Mini. Tim responded like "you can take these expensive components from my cold dead hands and give them away for free".

And Jony was insulted because he wanted a new cinema display he already designed. Tim was like "that would cannibalize our iMac pro sales, so no no!"


They both passed on taking part, instead, they went to a taco bell.


Steve would have never allowed this.

Question: Is there a way to turn off FaceID?? We need to have different users use the same iPad, and use a PIN to login if possible.
If not, can FaceID allow for more than 1 person per device??

I'm debating which set up I should go:

A -> Mac mini + iPad Pro LTE + Nokia 3310 (For simplicity and 27 days standby)

B -> Macbook Air + iPhone XR


Hard to decide

Tim Cook loves to show off the figure these days :D
Steve Jobs loves to show off the innovative concept.

SSD on Mac mini... how long did that one take...? like too long

Now users will wanna go back to spinning hard drives... being cheaper per gig

Clever marketing... take out the i5, so more will just to to better i7 from an i3 ...

Apple tries and makes it "better" with 4-cores and more speed. It's still an i3 on the face of it. and starts here at $1,200 that's more than i payed for my i5... So, you'd pay more, and get less.

$799 for an i3 Mac mini? And they're built in China? No thanks.
Assembled... its not the same thing..

They are really smart about how they price the mini, it can go up to $4200-ish pretty quickly when you configure it, haha. Mini with a pro price tag. That’s a good one.

The only device announced that isn't under-powered is the iPad-Pro... and it's the only thing that you doesn't really let you use all that extra power within the limitations of iOS and apps. Shame about the pricing on everything.

To be honest apple is still not listening to users , we want a new Cinema display .... a lot of profs Use dual monitor set up! And having 2 differnt looking displays Well for 10 k machine is just a bad Joke . ( iMac pro + a LG display) i want symetry or same look and feel . They finaly embrache egpu but no Apple screen to pair it with. You buy a new Mac mini that is way overpriced and it just doesnt have a screen option from Apple...
tge real threat to iMac pro is the new iMac With a 8 core cpu . Why is there still no new iMac?
I think there is a lot of trouble in Apple land why design stuff and not sell it ? A Apple cinema display would sell i know it . John was right . Also phil is right those SSDs are non replaceble and fill up quick if you target pro’s with your Mac mini it should be big just like there asking price . I could buy a Intel hadies Cannon nuc thats a lot better then this little mini and upgradable and has a great videocard (vega m).
I feeling Tim is the accountant maxing every penny out a product , making me feel

Well Steve would have done things different , but he is not here . I do think your right a bout that tim . He is accountant , that doesnt see the big picture in things . You sell a computer with out a display , but you could sell that same costumor a display . Hell im real mad this Mac mini is crap! Look at it ... Hp even have a mini lineup thats mutch more fun and exiting they Made it upgradable and expendable via stacking upgrades . All sold seperately and they even sell you s display . But Tim went for el cheapo and so boring same outside , different boring paintjob
No innovation just a cpu upgrade and soldering the smallest SSD you can find ....

Its clear tim wants to sell expencive stuff . No iMac upgrade ... because a 8 core 16 thead i9 would eat the iMac pro sales .. Steve would indeed have Made a aneversery iMac . I have no idea why in Gods name there still is a MBA because all Apple notebooks are thin and light... to thin for my tast . Any way if you sell machines that you want to be creatieve with small SSD are a big problem. Also USB A is the most used connection world wide .... and will be for many years.
Apple it counting penny’s to much the competition is getting better and better every year . I think again Apple just doesnt want to sell computers and just streching there designs . Because they want to sell iPads and iPhones i would love to see stockholders split the company in to Apple computers and iPhone iPads because its bin a very long time i have seen a new Apple computer that i wanted to gave .

i3/i5/i7 are marketing terms, try to ignore them.

Performance totally depends on the generation of processor and its clock speed.

Loved the products, expensive, but was awesome to see the Mini come back to life - thought that product line was toast.

Well, and the number of cores - 4 is really required these days (and has been since before the last Mini was launched) - that's why the last Mini was hated so much since it dropped the quad core option available in the prior version. JMHO...

Huh? No.

While it's not as cut and dried as "i5 better than i3 always", there are differences between the type of chip in a given generation that affect performance.

And at a given clock speed and number of cores, you're only going to see a 20-25% difference between a Nehalem (1st gen i-series, 2008) and a Coffee Lake (current gen) for straight up CPU performance. And the biggest jump was Nehalem to Sandy Bridge, it's been pretty incremental since then.

In the old days, it was easy to compare speeds. Now, you've got to look at the benchmarks for any given chip. But in general the i7 is going to be faster than the i5 is going to be faster than the i3.
