Apple recent announced a new roster of next-generation products including the M1 chip-carrying Macbook Air and the MagSafe Duo Charger, and you can now take a closer look at both of them here at HYPEBEAST.
While the Macbook Air has always offered great portability and mobility thanks to its slim profile and incredibly light weight, users have long wished for better performance, and now Apple has given this aspect a boost thanks to its all-new M1 chip. Combining CPU, GPU, its Neural Engine and I/O, the 16 billion-transistor chip can push video processing up to almost four times faster and image processing a whopping seven times the speed of its predecessor. Paired with the tech giant’s latest macOS Big Sur, the new Macbook Air definitely becomes a formidable laptop.
Turning to the new MagSafe Duo Charger, as its name suggests, Apple’s new charging device can support two devices at the same time, swapping out the circular design of the original MagSafe to now include two individual but connected squared charging pads. One features the usual large-sized pad for iPhones, while the secondary platform features a smaller charging area for accessory devices such as the Apple Watch or AirPods. Most significantly, the new MagSafe Duo Charger supports Qi-enabled devices, extending functionality beyond just Apple products.
For those interested, both the new Macbook Air and the MagSafe Duo Charger are now available over on Apple’s online store.
