Apple has just released updated models of its iconic 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Mini computers powered by its in-house Apple M1 SoC.
Earlier this year, Apple revealed that it will begin converting the entire Mac product line from the Intel X86 CPUs it has been using for the past 15 years to in-house ARM-based processors.
Apple M1 is the first new generation of Silicon processors that called Apple M1. which includes eight cores as well as a custom integrated GPU, image signal processor, Stable Enclave, and Neural Engine.
The Apple M1 is built on a 5 nm process with a modern unified memory architecture that is said to increase power performance.
Fresh 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Mini Pricing in India
The latest updated 13-inch MacBook Pro would be priced Starting at INR 1,22,900 for 256 GB of storage, and INR 1,42,900 for 512 GB of storage. the latest updated 13-inch MacBook Pro would be priced. They are the same costs as the previous versions of the MacBook Pro. The US rates are $1,299 respectively and $1,499 respectively. Both have a single memory of 8 GB. Intel-based 13-inch MacBook Pro versions are still still listed, with 512 GB and 1 TB of capacity priced respectively at INR 1,74,900 and INR 1,94,900. In Silver and Space Grey, both versions are sold.
The MacBook Air with Apple M1 SoC will also retain the same rates as before With a 256 GB version priced at INR 92,900 in India and a 512 GB edition priced at INR 1,17,900.
The MacBook Air with Apple M1 SoC will also retain the same rates as before. The costs are $999 and $1,249 respectively in the US. MacBook Air models operated by Intel are no longer mentioned. Silver, Space Grey, and Gold are the paint choices.
The Mac Mini also gets a price cut of $100 and a proportional decline in India , with the 256 GB edition currently priced at Rs. 64,900 and 512 GB at Rs. 84,900. In the US, prices are $699 and $899, respectively, and the only alternative is platinum. It also lists a single Intel-powered version.
Educational pricing is also available for all new Macbooks which has powered by Apple Silicon. As well as all new Macs are equipped with 8 GB of memory and an upgrade to 16 GB would cost Rs. 20,000 extra at buying time. The Apple Store online in India is now taking orders and lists November 25 as the earliest delivery date.
Features of the Apple M1 SoC and performance
The M1 SoC is designed specifically for small size and power efficiency (not to be confused with Apple’s line of M-series motion co-processors). It replaces many separate chips in previous-gen Macs, including the CPU, IO controls, security co-processor, and memory controller, with a high degree of integration. To eliminate replication and minimise lag as well as power drawing, a shared memory architecture requires all blocks to access a common pool of memory.
There are four high-speed CPU cores, which Apple claims are the fastest in the world and offer the highest per-Watt performance in the world. Using a quarter as much power as today’s top laptop CPUs, these cores are said to provide dramatically better efficiency and provide 3X the performance of existing Intel-powered Macs.
The four performance cores on their own are claimed to be as powerful as the MacBook Air powered by the new dual-core Intel Processor, but though consuming far less power.
The eight GPU cores deliver 2.6 Teraflops of throughput in terms of graphics efficiency. Apple claims that it is the most strong integrated GPU in the world. It is claimed to be twice as powerful as current GPUs, or one-third as much power for customers to provide the same output levels. Code often has more memory storage than ever before.
MacOS 11 Big Sur was developed to schedule activities between the cores of high performance and productivity. Much like iPhones and iPads, Macs fuelled by Apple Silicon are said to wake up instantly from sleep. All Apple apps has been streamlined and vendors are planning changes to their products, including Adobe. It is said that Logic Pro allows for up to 3X more instruments and effect plugins. When making complicated timelines, Final Cut Pro is said to run 6X quicker.
MacOS 11 will be available for download starting on Thursday, November 12.
The MacBook Air is, according to Apple, the best-selling 13-inch notebook in the world. Owing to 3.5x better CPU performance, 5X faster graphics and 9X faster machine learning than the previous generation, tasks previously impossible on such a small and light computer will now run. It is said that the current MacBook Air is better than 98 percent of the PC laptops sold in the past year.
Now, the latest MacBook Air is fanless and runs quietly. It supports up to 15 hours of wireless web access, 6 hours longer than before, and 18 hours of video playback.
MacBook Air 13-inch
The latest 13-inch MacBook Pro is claimed to be 2.8X faster with up to 5X better graphics and 11X faster machine learning than the previous version. In tasks such as video transcoding and compiling code, it uses active cooling to allow for continuous efficiency.
Wireless Online surfing and 20 hours of video streaming was up to 17 hours of battery life, which is 10 hours longer than before. For a Mac, this is the longest battery life ever. In addition to the upgraded M1 camera processor for smoother video with less grain and greater contrast in low light, Apple now promises studio-quality mics for video calls or capturing audio.

The latest Mac Mini is claimed to be up to 3X faster in terms of CPU performance than the previous version With a 6X improvement in graphics efficiency and 15X faster machine learning.
It is also said that the new top-selling laptop PC is only a tenth the size, and up to 5X faster.
