Apple 18th October Event

We discussed the annoucements at Apple’s recent “Unleashed” event including the new MacBook Pro models with M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, the 3rd generation AirPods and new HomePod mini colours. We also mentioned the new cheaper Apple Music Voice tier.

When discussing the “notch” added to the MacBook Pro display, DaveK pointed out these tweets from Linda Dong discussing the notch from a design/developer point of view.

Dave also mentioned the app Forehead that changes the menu bar colours so they blend in with the notch.

DavidB suggested Brian Tong’s review of the MacBook Pro with M1 Pro Max.
