The last bit of news from yesterday’s special Apple Event was the fact that Mavericks was being released Tuesday night as a FREE UPGRADE available to everyone who has a Mac. Mavericks OS was unveiled last summer during the World Wide Developer’s conference which promised performance and improved battery life upgrades.
But wait, that’s not all thats going to be updated and for free. Apple has upgraded their iLife and iWork applications for both the Mac and iOS devices and has allowed them to be downloaded for free with every purchase of a Mac or iOS device. This basically blows everyone else out of the waters. The applications each got a brand new redesign as well as a few new features.
I guess everyone is saying, Microsoft, who?
On top of the announcement of the newest iPads and iPad mini’s, Apple took the liberty to upgrade their current Retina MacBook Pro line-up and killing the 15-inch MacBook Pro (the one with the CD Drive) as well as announcing that the Mac Pro will be launching this December.
That was one heck of an announcement and for those of you wanting to purchase a new unit you can now purchase the following without having to worry about an updated device coming out now:
- iMacs [Updated last month]
- MacBook Air [Updated in June]
- MacBook Pro with Retina Display [Updated Yesterday]
- Mac Pro [Updated Yesterday]
The only device to yet see an update is the Mac mini but I am thinking it will get it’s time in the spotlight very soon, although it won’t have a dedicated event just a quiet update. So let’s discuss the updates.
This is the first time I take so long to recapping an Apple Event, and I am shocked by my actions, therefore I will punish myself with NO CAKE! :P Just kidding, anyways let’s get down to it, there will be two posts really to showcase everything that I want to talk about. First on the list, Apple has finally given the iPad a drastic new image to follow it’s younger sibling the iPad mini.
Nothing official yet, but it sounds about right. I’m guessing we will hear about new colors for the iPad 5 and a new form factor design to resemble the iPad mini, and maybe a retina display for the iPad mini? If all goes as predicted then Pre-ordering the new toys should be Friday October 25th and shipping a week later. But that’s all speculation of course.
Hello Goldpagne iPad 5 and iPad mini! Welcome to my Family children! :P
