Apple has unveiled a new operating system for its tablets, iPadOS 16, at WWDC 2022.
It has quite a few innovations, which, according to reviewers, bring Apple tablets as close as possible to the title of a full-fledged replacement for a laptop. New collaboration features have been added, including real-time teamwork, the Freeform app (a collaborative whiteboard), a new Stage Manager multitasking feature similar to macOS Ventura, and the ability to connect an external display to run up to four apps simultaneously on iPad and four more – on the external screen.
iPadOS 16 is now open to developers for testing, with a public beta coming in July. Compared to last year’s iPadOS 15, the iPadOS 16 update can’t be installed on two previously supported models, the iPad Air 2, which debuted in 2014, and the iPad Mini 4, which launched in 2014. 2015.
The list of supported iPadOS 16 models looks like this:
- iPad Pro – all models (1st to 5th generation)
- iPad Air – from the third generation
- iPad – from the fifth generation
- iPad mini – from the fifth generation
Apple’s mixed reality headset will be more powerful than many laptops. She will receive SoC Apple M2
Apple’s mixed reality headset should get the M2 single-chip system. Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman thinks so.
Earlier it was said that the headset will receive SoC M1, but apparently Apple has changed the configuration. It is also worth remembering that the current leaks speak of two platforms, and the second will be responsible for processing data from the device’s numerous sensors.
The headset will receive M2 with 16 GB of memory, that is, the performance of the device will be higher than that of many laptops on the market. At the same time, various rumors suggest that Apple has previously encountered the problem of overheating of the headset, so such a powerful platform, apparently, is also a minus.
At the moment, the headset is expected to be introduced in early 2023. It is also likely that for the first time Apple will show it at an event in the fall, but the device will enter the market next year.
More than 16 hours of continuous work – this is the autonomy of the new MacBook Pro 13 on M2
Apple laptops, thanks to Apple Silicon processors, stand out for their incredible autonomy. The latest MacBook Pro 13 based on the Apple M2 SoC is no exception.
The Verge journalist decided to check how long the new MacBook Pro will last in the mode of a full-fledged working system, when there is no goal to squeeze the maximum autonomy out of the PC.
The test started at 20:00. The author launched a browser with a dozen tabs, Spotify and set the brightness to 50%. Later on, the load on the PC increased as additional applications were launched, including Google Docs, After Effects, Instagram, Swift Playgrounds 4 game, PugetBench, Lightroom and so on. It is also worth noting that from 2:13 to 8:15, while the author was sleeping, YouTube was running on the laptop.
As a result, around 12:30 the laptop still turned off. He worked 16 hours and 30 minutes. The load at the same time quite corresponded to some conditionally average. If limited, for example, to the browser and typing, the laptop will probably last even longer.
The new Apple M2-based MacBook Pro has half the SSD speed of last year’s Apple M1-based NGA model
Following the release of Apple’s new 13-inch MacBook Pro based on the Apple M2, the $1,300 base model with a 256GB SSD was found to have significantly slower read/write speeds compared to the equivalent previous generation model.
YouTube channel Max Tech and Created Tech tested this version with the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test app and found that the SSD read and write speeds are about 1450 MB/s, which is about 50% slower when reading and about 30% slower when writing. compared to a 13-inch Apple M1-based MacBook Pro with a 256GB SSD.
Max Tech results:
- 13″ MacBook Pro (M1/256GB) Read Speed: 2900
- 13″ MacBook Pro (M2/256GB) Read speed: 1446
- 13″ MacBook Pro (M1/256 GB) Write speed: 2215
- 13″ MacBook Pro (M2/256 GB) Write speed: 1463
Upon disassembly, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with 256 GB of memory was found to have only one NAND flash chip, while the previous model had two NAND chips of 128 GB each. This difference probably explains why the new model has a slower SSD: multiple NAND chips in parallel provide faster speeds.
Perhaps this decision is due to lower costs and / or lack of components. Apple has not yet commented on the situation.
