Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference kicked off today with four major announcements from the company regarding their upcoming product lines.
The conference, held in San Francisco, California, was primarily expected to provide more details into the new Macbook Pro. For months there have been rumors that the new laptop would have the retina display. Yes, that retina display, the same one that earned rave reviews upon the release of the New iPad earlier this year.
Apple confirmed today that the new Macbook Pro would have it.
The full run down of information from Apple is as follows:
- Macbook Pro with retina display, full flash storage, and radically thin and light design [More Info]
- Macbook Air with faster graphics, faster storage, and latest Intel core processors [More Info]
- OS X Mountain Lion, the brand new operating system from Apple, will be released in July as a download from the App Store [More Info]
- iOS 6 which will include an all new Maps app, a smarter Siri, and numerous other features [More Info]
It was a big day for the company and one that understandably got their rabid userbase extremely excited for what is to come.
However, it should be noted that some of Apple’s previous releases have undergone media scrutiny in the past due to their lack of reliability. The new iPad’s “Heat Gate” controversy, which began when Consumer Reports stated that the new iPad could reach uncomfortable temperatures if used for too long, turned heads even if it didn’t turn down sales.
And who can forget “Antennagate” following the release of the iPhone 4, where consumers far and wide reported dropped calls when the phone was held by the receiver. Apple eventually corrected the issue, but not before taking a beating in the press.
Nonetheless, we’re extremely excited for the release of these new gadgets and operating systems.
And you can be absolutely certain that FixYa’s Experts are excited to get their hands on them as well.
