Product Hunt Daily Digest

Drops from Apple's Unleashed event

Apple had another day of drops yesterday from its Unleashed event. Let's get right into the new hardware.

First off, Apple presented two more M1 chips, an M1 Pro and M1 Max. That's fast since it released the M1 just last year. The Pro model CPU is up to 70% faster, with a GPU up to 2x faster, and 32GB of unified memory while the Max has unified memory up to 64GB.

Apple made a new home for the chips in a new MacBook Pro, or what some are already dubbing “Notch Book Pro.” The newly-designed MacBook Pros increase screen size at the cost of a “notch” where the camera lives, not unlike the latest iPhones. Apple also brought back an HDMI port, a headphone jack, an SD card slot, and a MagSafe charger along with three Thunderbolt ports. The MagSafe charger can charge up to 50% in 30 minutes.

The new standard Apple Airpods look like the AirPod Pros, without the interchangeable tips. They’ve got spatial audio support and are sweat and water-resistant.

Those that love color may like that the HomePod mini speaker is now available in yellow, orange, and blue. Or maybe you’ll be bummed there's no purple option.
