It wouldn’t be an Apple announcement week without Lory Gil joining us, managing editor of iMore. We start the conversation by talking about what all of the new M1 Macs have in common, which is much more than we’re used to seeing. Then we talk about what System on a Chip (SoC) actually means and why it’s so important to us. There is a very subtle, but possibly important difference between the 256GB and 512GB storage models of the MacBook Air, which makes it even more interesting to decide between the MacBook Air and the MacBook Air that were just announced. We explore why Apple never said the word “gigahertz” and how that makes the nerds crazy because we can’t compare the models to the previous Intel-based Macs. We explore the future just a bit and start dreaming of the next models Apple will release.
