M1 Silicon Mac — What Apple Didn’t Answer!

– No redesigns. “Wheres” redesigns? Where are our Thanossnapped half size bezels? Where’s our face ID. Where’s our thin iPad Pro design? Just all of those things, things that ought to have rumored over the course of the last year. I’m Rene Ritchie and welcome back. You had just so many questions about the brand-new M1 Apple Silicon Macs. So many questions. You craved the truth and I’m here to give you just as much truth as you can handle. As always questions frompatreon.com/ reneritchie be given priority, but if I don’t get to yourquestion in this video or if you have additionalfollow-up questions, time punched that subscribe button and bell.So you can be notified whenthe next video leads live and I’ll hang out with you in the comments for the first hour and chat. I know a lot of parties looked at Big Sur and the more spacious boundary, the interface thatlooked more like iPad OS and thought it precisely has to be a precursor of touchscreen Macs, of Apple sort of spendingthat time in the desert and refactoring elements of macOS to be more touch firstly and fingers-centric than they’ve previously been, and to a certain extent that’s true. But it looks like touchscreenMacs, if they come at all, are further in the future. And I simply say if they come at all because Apple still saysthey’re not doing them. As recently as the coming week, Craig Federighi addressed the issue. He was asked about Big Sur appearing more like atouch-centric interface, and he has been said, “No, we just wanted this new, more spacious design for the Mac and it has nothing to dowith being touch enabled.” Personally though, orhistorically, if we look back, Apple has always said theywill never got something right until the moment they announce it.Steve Responsibilities was famous for this. “We are never doing an iPod with video” and then he announces the iPod Video. “We’re never do phone calls, ” and then he announces the iPhone. “We are never gonna make a small tablet, ” and then they announced the iPad Mini. And in a number of cases, he wasplanning to do it to all along. He time didn’t wanna bungle it. And in other cases, parties like Phil Schiller and Eddy Cue reallychanged his mind on it, and I imagine that’salways the case at Apple. They are laser focused onwhat they’re doing now, and either they don’t wanna talk about what they’re doing next ortheir brain will be changed and they will finally agree to do next. From my point of view, I think increasingly, as this new generation ofcomputer consumers grows up, any presentation that’s not touch enabled is just gonna seem smashed to them.I mean, anyone who’s grownup in the age of the iPhone and the iPad is just gonna expect that a parade willrespond to their touch. And if it doesn’t, it’ll exactly feel like adead display to them. So this could also be something like we identified with the arm transition where at first we havethese catalyst beta apps and then we have officialcatalyst beta apps. And then the next yearwe have the transition to Apple Silicon. This could very muchbe that where one year, we have this more comfortable pattern and Apple still not talking about it. And then next year wesee more signeds of it.And then a year after that, unexpectedly we have touchscreen Macs and looking back it all attains total gumption. So long story previously far toolong , no touchscreens yet, Apple still saying no signature screens, but for me at least, I’m hoping the future is super promising. Ian Blackburn, “what about eGPU support? Would that even act? ” The short answer is no. The medium duration answeris that Apple is only currently patronizing AppleGPU’s on Apple Silicon Macs and there is just no supportfor any added GPU’s. And since Apple doesn’tmake external GPU’s there is no support for external GPU’s at least at this time. And whether Apple decidesto make their own eGPU’s or there’s some sort of design foradding added GPU’s, I think that’s super interesting. That’s probably laterin transition periods hertz when we start to get tothings like the Mac Pro or maybe even post-transition.Jeffrey David Marraccini on Patreon. Hope I stressed yourname privilege, Jeffrey. Let me know. “Is there any clue of controlling “for the M1-equipped MacBook Air? My fan-less 12 ” MacBookthrottled hard-handed at times.” So excellent question. So the way it cultivates is that first the SOC, the M1 itself will handleas much heat as it can. And that will go into thealuminum heat spreader that’s in the MacBook Air.And when that starts to max out, it’ll go to the actual aluminum casing the chassis of the MacBook Air, and merely at the level where that starts to punched peak temperature, will the processor start to throttle down but the whole point of the MacBook Air, and it being fan-lessis that it’s for people who are willing to tradethe sustained carry-on for the placid. And I restrain making this joke. It’s like mothers, wedon’t want anything else, we just want quiet. So if peak sustainedperformance is your thing, you’re gonna definitelywanna look at the MacBook Pro but if being thoroughly speechless, having that no love pattern is importantto you, then yes, you’re giving up somesustained execution. I belief throttling in general has been massively misunderstand. I think it was just completelypoorly, badly reported for years by people whoknew how to download and press a button on a mark and sort of parroteverything else they listen on the internet, but reallyit didn’t understand how modern Silicon works at all.And now everyone isparanoid about throttling but processors have always, always been heat finagled and that’s not consequently a bad thing. You simply have to choosethe right trade-off for the workload that wishes to. And that it is possible the MacBook Air but it also might besomething like the Mac Pro. Aziz Rahman on Patreon, “why have they maxed out the RAM at 16 GB and the hard drive at 2 TB? ” And this is also a really, really common question. And I think there’s justthis huge fallacy, this really weird, I don’twanna say mass hallucination but mass select reminiscence for people who are in the tech space, primarily like tech Twitter, tech YouTube, is that we all tend to buythe higher end of things and “ve forgotten” the lower cease, but the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro that these frameworks arereplacing only ever had up to 16 GB of RAM and up to2 TB of disc storage.And even that, that thisstorage part is relatively new. If you go back to 2016, when Apple innovated what I call the current layout contemporary of the MacBook Pro, theyintroduced this weird hybrid. – But we challenged our teamto take this new design, this 13 inch MacBook Pro, and could then make a model that would be really exciting for customers who wouldtraditionally pick a MacBook Air. – That first generationwent around for a while and then ousted itwith a touch prohibit version that’s still only had two ports. And that form hasalways maxed out at 16 GB. And I mull recently led up to 2 TB. So what Apple did with these two machines wasmake indistinguishable substitutions only exploiting the M1 chip because the M1 chip is ideally suited toreplace these machines. And the above reasons for the constraint on both sets of original Intel machines and the new M1 Apple Silicon machines is LPDDR4 low-toned power DDR4 memory.Apple uses their own special even slightly more ultra efficient version which I think they call LPDDR4X. And both on the Intel machines and apparently on the new M1machines that’s just to restrict 16 GB right now which is why those originalMacs had that restriction. Apple has departed higheron the higher end Macs but it’s done it by declining the low-pitched capability and travelling straight-shooting to DDR4 RAM and merely sucking it upand putting more artillery into the machine to compensate for it.But those original machines and these machines were meant to be at the ultra low-toned powerend of the range. The fib here is justbattery life, battery life, battery life, and even morethan the Intel versions, these Apple Silicon, these M1 explanations prioritize battery life. And I think that’s the big part of the story that keepsgetting lost is that yes, there were two portsand yes, there’s only 16 GB of RAM maximum, but that is identical to the Intel machines. What is different is that the performance by all indications is so much better and the battery life by all indications is absolutely, so so many of them that there’s really no likenes. The limits on one dissolve are the same and the limits on the otherend are just being crushed. For the Mac mini, it’s alittle more interesting because Apple used tohave an inexpensive entering statu Mac mini, and thenmore recently, I picture 2018 they changed that withthe current Intel Mac mini which went to space gray.It swopped from silver to space grey-haired to show that it was meant to be more pro and it did have those higher result specs including much higher RAM restrictions. But this Mac mini is silver again, I think that’s meant to show that this is very much a consumer version and that it is usingthe same M1 microchip limited perfectly in the RAM andin the storage faculty but it’s doing this at 100 bucks less to sort of re-introduce thatentry-level lower intention Mac mini. And then I expect sometime next year when Apple introduces the next tier of chips like theoretically, an M1X chip that’s gonna go into the higher end MacBook Pros and probably the lower end iMacs that there’ll likewise be anew Mac mini, a brand-new M1X or whatever Apple calls it, Mac mini that will getthe gap gray-headed emblazon back and will fit exactly.It will be an exact replacementfor the Intel Mac mini that Apple is currently still selling. And I think that’s thebiggest clue here is that Apple is currently still selling it because it is not meantto be a replacement. The same nature they’recurrently still selling the Intel version of thehigher resolve 13 ” MacBook Pro because the M1 explanation isnot meant to be a replacement for that machine. At least have still not been. Josua Gonzales-Neal on Patreon expects, “why did Apple target theMacBooks and Mac mini, but not an iMac.” And I think that ties intothe question I only asked, which is Apple is focused on, I don’t wanna say just thelower concluded with the M1 chip but it is definitely the lower end.Apple said here today repeatedly that they sell far more laptopsthan they sell desktops. And the MacBook Air is byfar the best-selling laptop. So in a way, this wasthe tactically sound move because Apple is only replacingthe lowest outcome of Intel. And it genuinely shows the differentiation that they can achieve on that end but it is also the mostpopular of their computers. So it’s showing thatthey are confident enough to risk the most popularcomputer in their lineup really straight out of the gate. But yeah, the committee is also does meanthat the higher end machines the machines that are morepro, that are more powerful, are now waiting on again, the M1X or whatever Apple announces that next statu up that next step up Apple Silicon method on a chipping. Ted Mooyman on Patreon says, “will, the performanceof the chip be different “in the Mac mini becauseit has no battery? Is the chipping different because of this? ” And , no.It is at leastaccording to Apple, exactly the same M1 organization on a chip in all of these brand-new Macs. In the brand-new MacBook Air, brand-new MacBook Pro and the new Mac mini, it’s exactly the sameincluding the clock moves. You can get a lower cease form in the MacBook Air with sevenGPU’s instead of eight GPU’s. But other than that, everyone of those GPU cores, every one of those GPU cores, the neural device, all the IP blocks, all of it is just accurately the same. The only difference isthe thermal handling in each of these Macs.So you start off with nofan in the MacBook Air which means that it’ll havethe same abound operation. So propelling apps, opening web pages, all that sort of things, things that need instant responsiveness, that will all be the same but things that requiresustained performance, things like transcodingvideo, or gathering system anything that uses those chipsfor long periods of time. Sort of like the questionI answered at the beginning because there’s no fan, the MacBook Air will ultimately rampdown and ramp down harder because the only thing thatcan do to manage the hot is step down the processorwhere the MacBook Pro, which has a fan, which has active cooling, it can dissipate heat better so that it can stop doingthat workload longer. And the Mac mini because it has such abigger thermal envelope. It’s just a much bigger boxand it has active cooling. Apple says that it canjust sustain unlimited. It’s just that the M1 in the Mac mini can play ponderous workloads, mostly forever. So you get the same processor, you get the same instantburst workloads from it.It’s just different in how ithandles sustained workloads. And I should point out thatyou might understand inconsistencies in standards time basedon when they’re being running, and at what moment inthe sort of temperature power management curve, they’re hitting the chip at. In the very beginnings, they’re all gonna have the same peak frequencies over period. You will see them extremely located entirely on their thermal envelope. Johnny Rocha on Patreon. And again, I hope I’mpronouncing that accurately, “have there been any updateson emulating windows? ” So Apple is no longersupporting bootcamps, so you won’t be able to boot into windows, like dual boot into windows because they’re no longersupporting the x86 architecture.What they’re doing insteadis supporting virtualization. They’ve got hypervisor acceleration built freedom into theSilicon in the M1 chip. And what that makes now isthat it’s entirely in the court of companies like parallels and VMware to exactly deploy solutionsthat sound into that virtualization subscribe. It’s impossible to knowhow well they’ll work. I’m guessing that becausethey’re not available now instantly, they are still working on it. So it’s just a huge open question. But if you are ever gonna be able to run the Intel version ofwindows on an Apple Silicon Mac, it is likely to be through thathypervisor acceleration. It’ll be through virtualization. Joshua Karp on Patreon expects, “When do you think AppleSilicon iMacs will come? ” And that’s a superinteresting question because when Tim Cook announced theApple Silicon modulation back at Dub Dub DC, he saidit would make two years, up to two years tocomplete the transition.And that’s exactly whatSteve Jobs said where reference is announced the superpower PC toIntel transition back in 2005, that it would take up to two years. Back then though, it onlyended up taking a year. They got all the Macs switched over from supremacy PC to Intel in about a year. And it’s possible Applewill do that as well. So between last June and next June, we could see the entire cable transition. But I visualize Apple likes to give themselves the seat to say two years. So between June, 2020 and June, 2022 because it’s impossible toknow if anything will go wrong. If there’ll be any production times, any issues they have to work around, any constituent availabilitythey have to deal with. I symbolize, if 2020 has shown us anything, is to under promise and over deliver. So I think it’s reallyprudent to say two years. My guess is though, we’ll seethe iMac some detail next year at least and peculiarly a lower death iMac, like a 24 inch iMacthat leverages the same, what I’m gonna exactly keepcalling an M1X chip. That’s gonna go into something like a 16 inch MacBook Pro. And if there is somethingmore pro grade than that for example, an iMac Proor what eventually goes into a Mac Pro that couldbe towards like the very end of the transition, thesame exact direction it was with power PC at Intel. Gil Schoenberg from Patreon said, “I found that the Air has aseven and an eight option GPU. So there is an M1 variance” And yeah, absolutely.For the MacBook Air, andonly the MacBook Air, you can choose between sevenGPU cores at the lowest purpose or 8 GPU cores at the higher end. The MacBook Pro and the Mac mini only come with the eight GPU core version. And that’s interesting because previously Apple wouldjust use the Intel formula which was segmentation based on frequency. And this is only that you would pay more toget higher based frequencies. And I ever just imagineIntel sitting there and artificially turninga screwdriver to decide, mostly compensate us more and we’ll give you faster clock accelerations. And it’s more complicated than that because chips do been higher and lower and Apple is doing something similar here.So basically when you pushout a knot of chips like this and you test them, some ofthem aren’t gonna be perfect and you can throw away theones that aren’t perfect but that lowers the fruit frequencies for that microchip and increases your expenditures because you’re paying thesame amount to get little usable chippings out of it. And we saw this withthe iPad Pro previously. The original redesigned iPad Pro in 2018 had seven GPU coresbecause the yield charges on the ones that had fully functional, all cores fully functionalwere just really low-spirited. But the ones that had at least seven of those coresfunctional was totally usable. So we got the seven core version that they called the A12X. Then flash forward to early 2020, and the relent charges on thatseven nanometer process had increased and weregetting ample amounts of microchips that had all eight cores, all eight GPU cores fully functional.So that’s just all they put into the latest generation iPad Pro. And this is similar. Apple probably had a fairamount of microchips that came out with exclusively seven functional GPU cores. And rather than only litter those, abbreviate their produce andincrease their costs, they are preparing them accessible as a lower cost optionfor the MacBook Air. So mostly elapsing on those savings and lowering the cost ofentry for the MacBook Air.And I repute, for people who would buy the lowest penalty MacBook Air, it’s not gonna make a huge difference because each one of those GPU cores is still absolutely as fast as any other. It’s just, you can only max out to seven of them and not eight of them. Like you count on thehigher terminate MacBook Air or the MacBook Pro or the Mac mini. So it’s an interesting room. It’s a new practice I think ofdoing that sort of segmentation but I think it’s probablyeven better for buyers because regardless of what you pay now, you’re still getting thesame concert per core not just on the GPU, butfully functional CPU is across the board and all ofthem at the same clock speed.So you’re no longerpenalized on action time based on what you’re give. Caneighdian on Patreon requests, “are the chassis the same dimensions? “I have a clip-on hard shellcase with a cool sticker I’ve been using for my 2018 Air, and I’m hoping I canuse it on the brand-new Air.” They are the same facets. Apple rolls them as the same aspects. So that gives me a fairly high degree of confidence that it’ll work. Effectively, all they’redoing is a chip transplant but I would still wait untilthe first adjusted of reviews and hands-on, and all of that comes out and people can actually test them and make sure there’s notjust any anomalies at all that would prevent it’s usage. Steven Kaplan on Patreon wants to know, “how same is the M1 to the A1 4 chip? “Is it the same chip or is it different and how much different is it? ” So that’s a great question. The path I look at it, whatI think it is I may be wrong but what I think it is, is basically an A14X plus. And what I convey by that is ithas the same basic Silicon IP, the same generation, thesame building as the A14 but it is similar to what Apple would do in a theoretical A14X that would go into a future iPad Pro. And that is add thoseextra two high-performance firestorm CPU cores, andthose additional 4GPU cores that they would typically add to whatever generation ofiPad Pro they’re exhaust. But then the plus duty wouldbe the Mac specific stuff. So for example, the M1 hasThunderbolt controllers which you don’t find on the A14 version. So again, you make the A14and you contributed the additional cores and then the Mac, the Macstuff that you need for Macs but you wouldn’t crave the overhead for especially in an iPhone. Robin Harley on Patreon says, “the 16 GB RAM limit “on all the M1 representation clangs constrained.Surely this will restriction some applications.” Again, the systems thatthese are replacing, the specific MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro because this is replacingalready had a 16 GB RAM limit. For the Mac mini, that’ssliding in below the already existing Intel Mac mini because it’ssilver and not seat grey-haired. And that’s how you can tell it’s for consumers and not for pros. And so, yes, it is more around constrainedthan the pro poses but it’s also not thepro sit that I expect we’ll discover get a transition next year.But in terms of limitations in general, I believe the same thing willbe true with Apple Silicon. That was true with those Intel sits because of theirobsession with low-grade things, like low-grade dominance round that they’ve had toget used to under Intel which had that same hard restraint for the low strength versionsof things like DDR4 RAM, they’ve gotten really goodat using memory compression. Using things like those ultra fast SSDs for exchange that in many cases, certainly not all cases but in many cases aretransparent to the user. You don’t realize you’ve hit a RAM limit because it’s swapping in and out so quickly. So I don’t think we’llsee any difference at all between the exact same Intel representations that Apple has now replaced with M1 because the RAM limits are the same and the mitigations that arealready in place are the same and are actually certainly, really gone. So that won’t, and shouldn’tbe any more concerned today than they were yesterday. It’s an open question though how Apple will support that memory.Whether they will do whatthey’ve done in the Macs and that is suck it up anduse the non low-grade strength edition and only add artillery tomake up for significant differences because Intel was just never immense about is in favour of low-spirited power Ram with the highest configurations, or if they will figure out how to do the low-pitched powerRAM at higher configurations or for things like an eventual Mac Pro, whether they’ll figure outsome kind of plugin system, the course you can plugin an afterburner placard, for example, and havemaybe even expandable RAM that lane you might never be that that’s just me completelyspeculating and spitting balling but I know I am, and I’m sure many of us are interested to see precisely if and how they figure all that out.Tyler Stalman on Twitter and hey, Tyler Stalman, if you haven’t alreadycheck out his channel, astonishing amazing photographyand videography videos. And Tyler invites, “I’m most inquisitive “about the performance difference “between the three machines. How much does active cooling concern? ” So I think if yourworkload is located heavily on documents and web shop and email and messagingand those sorts of things, you will notice no gap at all because the clock accelerates are the same between the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro and theMac mini, anything that sort of benefits from those pinnacles, those volleys but doesn’t require thesustained workloads at all. You’ll attend no change. If you are doing things like transcoding sizable media records or compilinglarge amounts of code, anything that does requirethe processor to be lit up for long extended periods of time. I think that’s when you’ll start to notice extremely the longerthose workloads previous, the more you’ll noticebecause the MacBook Air will have to eventuallyramp down clock speed exactly to prevent itself from overheating where the MacBook Prowill be able to go longer, and the Mac mini will justbasically be able to go forever.So if what you do now todayon your Intel Mac or PC, or whatever involves a processor, like if you look at your diagnostics and you check the cores maxedout and they abide maxed out for a long period of time, you should definitely look at the MacBook Pro and the Mac mini. But if you almost neversee them stay maxed out if they explode, if they go up rapidly and they go back downwhere they’re never close to the top, you should beabsolutely fine on any of them. Matt Fandango on Twitter says, “the mini specs page saysit can run two presentations, “one on Thunderbolt, one on HDMI. “And that seems strange.Any refinement? Can it guide two displays via Thunderbolt? ” And no, it can’t. That is, I wanna saya odd the special characteristics of the M1 Macs previously onthe exact same Intel representations that these M1 one examples are changing. You could run up to 15 K presentation or up to 24 K displays over Thunderbolt. And then also one up to 4Kdisplay with an HDMI adapter. A Thunderbolt to HDMIadapter with the brand-new M1 Macs, the highest level has gone up.You can now run up to one of Apple’s 6K Pro displayXDR is off of Thunderbolt but you can no longer run 24 K exposes. You can only operate 14 K expose. And if you wanna guide anadditional one, you have to do it over that Thunderbolt to HDMIadaptor and over HDMI 2.0 and that is just strange, quirky. And probably just the resultof the architectural selects they are required to offset either tosupport the Pro Display XDR or time in general for the chip set.And yeah, it kind of doessuck, but I have a feeling that people who arerunning two presentations are probably doing it on higher end machines. And that make-ups me hopeful that where reference is experience whateverApple calls the M1X, the more powerful processor that will go into the 16 inch MacBook Pro, the higher end 13 inch MacBook Pro, the cavity gray-headed Mac mini, the 24 inch iMac, all of those kinds of machines. I’m hopeful that will rehabilitate numerou expose functionality. And I also think that people who normallywould absolutely neglect and we’ve seen that peopletotally neglected these Macs because they didn’t realize1 6 GB Macs still existed. People who dismissed thosemachines are now paying attention to them only because they’re the first and one machines and areconsidering them simply because they’re the first M1 machines and not the higher end Macsthat they would typically buy. So I would just urgeanyone not to buy these time because they are M1. I mean, if they do the workyou demand, that’s fantastic. But if “youve had” specificrequirements that they don’t meet, I would just wait untilApple settles out the next situate, the next M serial provided of Macs and look to see if thoseare one more akin to the Macs you’re already use, the Intel Macs previously utilizing. And two, if they just way way better suit your current workloads. Jordan Kennedy on Twitter says, “do the 4 high-performanceand 4 high efficiency cores “work at the same time together, or is it precisely one set at a time? ” That’s also a terrific question because primarily withApple’s synthesi architecture, the one that they debuted with the A10, I guess and the iPhone seven, they were literally fused together.And that’s what gaveus the list A10 fusion. You had one efficiency in one performance corethat would work in tandem. But since we went tothe bionic structure, since we went to the A1 1 bionic, those were sort of separated out. So now, any combining, any number of cores can be used just as a performancecontroller deemed necessary. So the more office you throw at them, the more cores they will respond with. Kent Arnsbarger. And again, forgive me ifI’m mutilating these refers on Twitter says, “will the RAM be upgradableby me in the mini? Same RAM as the 2018. ” No, once you go to an SOC, once you go to a systemon a chip in this case, the RAM is on that chip.So there’s no way to change it in any way, any more than you canchange the CPU or GPU or neural instrument. What you buy is what you get. Apple has done some off microchip Ram, I believe in iPads previously but even that would haveto be connected to the chip in such a way that youwouldn’t be able to change it. If Apple could figure out away to oblige the RAM separate, it might be really ugly. Like it might just destroy the benefits of blended recall altogether or maybe they can dosomething super clever. Like I has already mentioned, perhaps they could have a modular system that enables you plug it in. And it simply handles all of that but I don’t think that’sever been done before. And that would be … I would think at leasta major breakthrough, so never give up all hope but I wouldn’t accommodate the hope in this.Anyway. I remember Appleis definitely looking at the computer appliancepart of the market and just letting other vendorshandle the modular percentage alone which I know suctions for anybody, just really really suctions for anybody who does love the Mac and wants to get in thereand change things around. But it’s the future Apple’schosen for themselves and the one that theythink is gonna be best for their clients. And certainly they’veput all their money where that attitude is. Adarsh V on Twitter says, “will the video feed fromthe same old potato cameras be significantly betterdue to the brand-new ISP? ” And yes, it will be significantly better in terms of the final production, the same way that an iPhone camera or iPad camera is significantly better in terms of what it displays than the camera itself would ever allow.You are still dealing with a 720 P camera. So simply the amount of data that it pullsin is limited by that. And those, by the way are limited by the thinness of the lid. Apple precisely demands these certainly thin lids on these motifs andmaybe a future scheme. If they put in a true-life profundity camera for face ID, which I genuinely, actually hope they will. Even if they have to putin a camera bump or not or whatever, I’ll take anythingat this target, but you know in the future they might changeand establish us better cameras but for now they didn’t wannachange the designs at all. So we are stuck withexactly the same cameras because we’re stuck withexactly the same eyelids and they are using all thecomputational power of that ISP which is the samecomputational power as the A14 ISP in the iPhone 12 series.So it is no joke. And I think we’ll be surprised at how good these cameras are given the physical glass involved but I think everyone willstill hope and genuinely push forward better glass in futureversions of these products. –AA Ron on Twitter wants to know, “I’d love to know your thoughts on why they didn’t do anynew industrial design.” And my understanding isthat Apple wanted to focus on time doing the heart transplant taking the Intel CPU’s andIngrid integrated graphics out of the existing Mac lineupand ousting specifically that with the new M1 Apple Silicon chippings And this is very much what they did with the Intel to powerPC transition as well.They only replaced the powerPC chips with Intel chippings in the existing design, overthe course of that modulation, and then they startedintroducing the brand-new intends. Now, cynically, you canlook at that and say Apple time doesn’t wannagive everything there is apart formerly. Some beings will be tempted to buy based on Apple Silicon alone but others will be enticedto buy based on the redesign. And so they can space that out and get sort of two bites at the Apple. But I believe pragmatically, extremely because Apple still focuses on these small teams whodo one thing at a time, they do it as well as they cando it and then they move on. That only is far morepractical to only worry about the chipping provide transition at first.That space the existingdesigns are a known target. They have exactly the parameters that they need to build for it. They don’t have to worry about problems with the new casings, unforeseen consequencesof the new casings. They can just take what isknown, what is established, what they have rock solid data for and simply focus on gettingthe chipping provides into there. It’s a difference betweenshooting an arrow into a target and shooting an arrow intoanother arrow at a moving target. That then both arrows haveto smacked that moving target. So I am super disappointedabout it as well. I’ve been dying for the 14 “MacBook Pro for Mac mini. That’s the dimensions of the an AppleTV, all of those things, but this was very much precisely a places great importance on the Apple Silicon this time And then I expect the transition to follow through with the existing designs and then Apple to startintroducing brand-new patterns, formerly we get past the transition.So this is the official start internally of the next generation of Macs. And that’ll be theofficial start externally. Mohammad Hafzah invites, “doesit come with a charger? ” And well-played, well-played. Yes. All of the Macs come with it. Well, I trust the Mac mini has always plugged into a wall directly. It doesn’t have a discreet cable and plug organisation becauseit’s not a portable. You only plug it in and left open in. And if I’m bearing in mind that wrong just let me know in the comments. But if you go to the tech spec page for either one of theMacBooks, the Air or the Pro, and you scroll down, you’llget a beautiful picture of everything that comes in the box. And that includes a 30 Watt charger for the MacBook Air, and Ithink it’s a 61 white charger for the MacBook Pro. David Honneck. And I know I declared that wrong. So apologies on Twitter says, “Did Apple only remove thefan on purpose from the Air, “so there’s a big differencebetween the Air and the Pro? They are too similar now.” And yes, but I don’t thinkin the way you’re implying, I believe since Appleintroduced the 12 ” MacBook which “havent had” fan there’s beenthis market for moan quietly, highly portable ultra lighter MacBooks.And since they discontinuedthat 12 ” MacBook instead of replacing that at least so far, they’ve pushed the Airmore into that niche and they couldn’t do it previously because the Intel chip place, she was required to drive it at least approachingacceptable action tiers necessary a supporter in that chassis. There was just no way tomaintain its performance without a devotee, but because the M1, the Apple Silicon isso much more efficient, they can now maintainthat execution position. They can have a better rendition level without needing a love. So instead of creatingan artificial change, they are creating more options. They are giving parties more alternatives because there areabsolutely people who do not need those levels of sustained achievement and in a heartbeat would trade that for simply never having to hear a devotee again.And then there are people whomay not enjoy hearing a love but are willing to put up with it to get those higher achievement those higher sustained rendition stages, and both of them now have a choice. Neither of them are just sitting there and being all pissed off all day. Rishi O on Twitter says, “what does the M stand for? If it’s Mac, then I approximate wewon’t see it in the iPad.” And yes, it’s Mac, I guess for a while now not with the A sequence, because that was firstly, but for a while now we’ve seen Apple just be very hyper literal about the lists we gotthe original M series which was the flow processor the sensor synthesi hubthat was eventually only integrated away into the A series.And then we got like theW series for wireless who is currently exclusive to theApple watch and the S series for plan and container, which was also exclusive, well, I suppose somebody wanted to started with the Apple Watch and isnow also in the Homepod mini. And then we’ve got theH streak for headphones who come in the AirPods and AirPods Pro. So Apple seems to really like the idea of pairing the letter tothe purpose of the Silicon. And we won’t see it in the iPad because there’s no need to, the iPads use the A series, the same as the iPhones and a theoretical A14Xwould be nearly identical to an M1. It merely wouldn’t havethe Mac specific stuff like the Thunderbolt controllers, like the hypervisor corroborate, like the Rosetta support thatyou don’t need on an iPad. So then there siblings, absolutelyvery similar architecture IP generation, all of that. It’s just better tohave those small amounts of specificity where you need them.Arvid on Twitter says, “no U1 microchip? ” And no. No U1 chip. And it would have been nice precisely to have in terms of aiming Airdrop. Absolutely. And for thelaptops, theoretically, a determine my networkimprovement that are actually ties into those for things like vehicle keys, you’re never gonna carry your Mac mini around and use that to unlockyour BMW and turn it on. So I would have loved to see it. I am bummed that we didn’t see it. And I do hope that wesee it on the higher end on what I’m just gonna keepcalling the M1X chip provided until Apple refers it otherwise. Jon Collins requests, “how well will M1 hardwarerun legacy Intel apps? Worthless or penalize? ” And we’ll have to waittill we start experiencing the early critique tricklein to know for sure, but Apple is being supremelyconfident about this.And they’ve said outright that if the Intel apps leverage metal if they rely on metal, they will even outperform. In some occurrences, those exactsame apps running natively on Intel, there’ll be betteron emulation on Apple Silicon, then they will be on Intel. And if Apple is doing any sort of other, I don’t wanna call it wizard, but if they’re being reallyclever with how the IP drives, if there’s any Rosettaspecific IP in these microchip names, then we could well seeperformance that well outdoes our hopes, at least in a lot more appsthat might otherwise be the case.So again, I don’t wanna get my hopes up. I wanna expect the worstand be agreeably surprised but only based on the way thatApple has “re just acting” lately, I mull a lot of parties are in for a lot of pleasant surprises. Chris Small on Twitter says, “how are iOS device apps gonna work on Mac with their touch commands? ” And Apple, they are only have done theheavy lifting to work to surface menu prohibits, to makethem work with mouse needles. And it may well depend on the app and how touchcentric the app is. Catalyst is probably not a perfect resemblance because catalyst required somework to form them optimized. But I think in terms ofwhat Apple did to automate, to handle a lot of theheavy lifting for catalyst, they’re just gonna leveragefor iOS and iPad iOS apps and the basic translationstuff will all exactly run.
