Apple M-series Chip

Apple’s Mac is undergoing a renaissance, owing to the introduction of new versions with improved battery life and powered by Apple’s M-series chips.

In 2020, Apple revealed that it would ditch Intel in place of chips that it originally created for iPhones but later tailored for laptops and desktops.

Apple will unveil a new Mac model that is powerful and efficient, marking another important step towards a computer line powered exclusively by Apple chips.

Apple’s head of hardware, John Ternus, hinted that a more powerful new Mac Pro model might be released in the future.

Live sports

Apple has announced that two exclusive Major League Baseball games would be broadcast on Friday nights, marking the company’s first foray into live sports.

Apple stated that live broadcasts will be broadcast pre-game and after-game, and are not subject to local broadcast restrictions. Apple TV+ subscribers will not be required at the moment.

Apple claims that it will be broadcast across the United States, Canada and Australia. It will also be available in Brazil, Japan, Mexico (Puer Rico), South Korea and the United Kingdom.
