Apple upgrade laptops and announce iOS 6
The most impressive upgrade is that of the MacBook Pro, which is now equipped with the lovely high-resolution retina display in its 15 inch incarnation. That model also has 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, which with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.3GHz, plus 8GB of memory and 256GB of flash storage. Best of all, it’ll only cost you… erm… £1,800.
The ‘basic’ MacBook Pro has a 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive, and that’ll set you back just… erm… £1,000. Meanwhile the basic version of the souped-up MacBook Air has a 1.7GHz processor, 4GB of memory, and 64GB of flash storage for just £850. Soup it up further yourself with 128GB of flash storage and it’ll set you back £930.
Meawhile, iOS 6 is coming, with lots of new features – the largest of which is Apple’s own mapping service, replacing Google Maps that have been part of previous versions of the OS. Additionally, voice-activation thingamajig Siri will be available for the latest iPad as well as the iPhone 4S. Apple are also working with various car manufacturers to being in-car Siri-control to their devices. Which is nice.
