Apple

While Apple’s October Unleashed Event, the company announced an updated camera for its new 14 inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro computers. Laptops are powered by new Apple Silicon chips called M1 Pro and M1 Max. Normally, the biggest news would be the new CPU and GPU upgrades that Apple has made to its pro-grade laptops. But many creative types, artists, photographers and video editors rejoiced when Apple announced that the new MacBook Pro computers will include several features that previous models had left out. There is now a integrated SD card reader, physical hardware function line keys, and a MagSafe Power Charger.

But one upgrade that anyone who’s used video chat on a MacBook Pro in the past 18 months has been hoping for is an improved camera. And Apple gave us one. Housed in a small notch, the new camera has a larger aperture that lets in more light for a brighter image. And the resolution goes from 720p to 1080p.

Apple said the camera’s sensor had “more efficient pixels.” I’m not quite sure what that means. This could mean that the sensor is able to read data from the pixels faster. There may also be some form of pixel clustering to help improve detail and brightness.

The MacBook Pro’s camera uses the ISP and neural engine of the M1 Pro and M1 Max to improve overall picture quality. Apple says it all adds up to better skin tones and sharper images. We’re really excited to try out the new camera when we can get our hands on the new Macs.

During his october event, Apple also announced that the new MacBook Pro models house a notched display, but have abandoned the touch bar. The tech giant unveiled Third generation AirPods, also.
