The Apple Watch is a great companion to your iPhone. Furthermore, you need to use an iPhone to use Apple Watch’s functionality.

Although iPad technology is so over powered that a 2018 iPad Pro is not a bad proposition either Apple's attempt as a laptop replacement. The hardware matches and sometime exceed even Apple's laptop offering but iPadOS still hold back the iPad Pro's full potential

The iPad is Apple’s line of table computers that was first introduced in 2007. The original iPad bought many firsts for Apple: first tablet, first custom chip, first mention of iOS (was first on the iPhone 4, but was redesigned for tablet in mind). Now the tablet has morphed into 3 distinct lines. The consumer is called the iPad or iPad Mini which meant as a content consumer device. The middle-tier is the iPad Air which as some of the features of the Pro models but a more approachable price. The top tier is the iPad Pro which intended to be a laptop replacement device. The iPad Pro has many features that is not even available on the MacBook line up such as LIDAR scanner or MicroLED screen and is competitively priced against their own MacBook line. The iPads run on a special operating system called iPadOS which at the moment has features that is present in both iOS and macOS.

Since iPadOS 13, iPadOS has included mouse support. They are labeled as assistive devices but Appe on the other hand sells Magic Keyboard with built-in track pad. Mouse and track pad is not a requirement to use any of the iPadOS program, but just like the Apple Pencil, they contribute to a better overall experience when using certain programs.

Related: Overview of the desktop Mac lineup

Mac stands for Mouse Activated Computer and is one of the earliest Apple product. Continuously on sale since the 1980s, Apple together with Microsoft and Intel has been shaping the personal computing world and has not been stop doing ever since. The personal computer in Steve Jobs words is “bicycle for the mind”. You can certainly do more with Macs and other PCs and now supplement, and sometimes replaced, by other devices like iPhones, iPads and Apple Watch, you can certainly do more today than just 5-6 years ago.

Since re-taking over the Apple company in the late 1990s, Steve Jobs have trimmed the Mac line up into just 4 product categories. The only modification is there is two consumer desktop offerings: the iMac and the Mac Mini. Since then, the Mac product line up has not change much since early 2000.

Transition Period


Apple M1, the first Apple Silicon for Macs. First of many to come.

Apple announced in WWDC 2020 (June 2020) that their Mac line up will be transition to their own chips called Apple Silicon. The first products that run on Apple Silicon will be introduced in Q4 2020 and they expect the transition to complete in 2 years (Q4 2022).

Apple released the first series of machines with Apple first silicon called the M1 on November 2020 with entry level Macs (MacBook Air, Mac Mini, Entry-level Macbook Pro). The 21.5-inch iMac has been replaced with a 24-inch iMac on April 2021.

Despite the development of Apple Silicon macs, Intel Macs will continue to be supported at with new OS versions for at least 5-years since first release and security updates for at least 8-years since first release. So far the last Intel Mac that Apple made is in mid-2020 for the 27" 5k iMac. So continue to expect new OS release until 2025 and security updates until mid-2028. There are rumored plans that Apple will update the Mac Pro one last time before moving on to Apple Silicon as most Mac Pro users are large companies that will appreciate some lead time and extended support.

Our recommendation at this moment is not to buy Intel Macs unless you really need to. This is because Apple is moving forward with their Apple Silicon plan and all future software development will concentrate on the Apple Silicon Macs.

Laptops

MacBooks occupy at the premium segment of the laptop market. Contrary to popular belief, they are quite cost competitive compared to their peers. If you are looking something that is capable but at a lower budget, my advice is to look for iPad as a lot of the tasks that can be accomplish on the Mac can be done on the iPad. Software development, multi-user environment and enterprise software is one of the few domains that the Macs still have an edge over the iPads.

Since the introduction of the M1 chips, the MacBook has shown to be a good value proposition since they can match or even beat the best from Intel or even AMD. As of now, the major difference between the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro is sustained workload handling. While the MacBook Air has passive cooling, which means that under heavy workloads, the MacBook Air will thermal throttle itself after around 10 minutes of workload while the MacBook Pro will carry on.

Apple updated the MacBook Pro to an all new design featuring a 14" and 16" form factor. It introduce new M-series chips dubbed M1 Pro and M1 Max which rivals desktop class chip that is even more power efficient that the Intel own powerful chips. Truely a unique product in the market.

Update cycle

  • Macbook Air (last update: Q4 2020, next expected update: unknown, possibly Q4 2021)

Where to buy?

Desktop

Desktop Mac runs from the gamut that is the basic $699 Mac Mini which does not comes with anything to the $50,000 Mac Pro that find its home in large production houses that makes $200 million movies. Both the Mac Mini and the Mac Pro are customizer’s delight. You can basically personalize the Mac to fit your needs. The iMac is an all-in-one desktop solution that is well made and capable.

  • iMac Pro (last update: Q4 2017, discontinued)
  • Mac Pro (last update: Q4 2019, next expected update: unknown, might be Q4 2022)

Where to buy?

Mac Accessories

Except for the Mac Mini and Mac Pro, all the Macs can be use straight from the box without additional items. However, you can add accessories to increase your Mac capabilities and also personalize your Mac.


Magic Keyboard with TouchID

Starting with Apple Silicon, Apple release Magic Keyboard (that’s the name) with TouchID where you can unlock your supported Mac using your finger print. The TouchID can also be use to authenticate purchase and logins. iMac now come in shrunk keyboard that does not have a numpad. If your work environment requires you to punch in a lot of numbers, having a numpad can be extremely useful.


Magic Mouse 2

Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad are Apple pointing devise. The iMac comes with the Magic Mouse by default although you can spec your build to include a Magic Trackpad. There is numerous article talking about the design and comfort of those input device.


Apple Pro Display XDR

The Retina Pro Display XDR is a high end monitor from Apple. And it is the only monitor that is built and sold by Apple. It’s a 6K display monitor with HDR capabilities that meant to bridge the gap between color accurate monitor that cost around $3,000 to $4,000 to reference monitor used by studio that cost around $30,000 to $40,000. So far the review has been mixed that it is over priced for the $3,000 but not as good as the $30,000 reference monitor.


Industry standards interface means you can personalize your Mac to suit your needs

Since the PC is a very mature platform, there is a plethora of products that can and will work with the Mac. Macs and increasingly iPad Pro has been using industry standard connections like USB-C, ethernet, 3.5mm headphone jack, WiFi and Bluetooth standard to work with 3rd party devices. There’s no reason not to choose 3rd party products if they are useful to you.

iMac

The iMac has been updated for 2021 featuring new design, colors, M1 chip and many other features to make this a compelling and possibly the best all-in-one computer ever made.


MacBook Pro

Apple has redesign the MacBook Pro to feature the new M1 Pro and M1 Max SOCs, amongst other things. Will the all-new MacBook Pro repair the reputational damage it suffered for the last five years? We believe so, but time will tell.


Macbook Air M1

Apple's default laptop has been updated with the new M1 chip, kicking off the transition away from Intel to their own solution. What was considered a decent laptop has turn into a powerhouse and a showcase of Apple's technological prowess in semiconducting, engineering and design.

Music

Apple’s foray into the music world begins with the introduction of the iPod, the popular music player in the early 2000s which help Apple raise up from the brink of death. Later, Apple has introduced digital music distribution called the iTune store, updated the iPod with a new interface first featured in the iPhone, and later expand to Music streaming service and a line of popular earphones.

Best Feature Decent sound. The wired click button is handy. Works well with all your Apple devices Active noise cancellation and transparency mode Sound quality
Verdict Used to come with every iPhone. It was not the best but it was decent It was quite popular that when I went to Manhattan in 2017, I thought they were standard issue for every New Yorker ANC works great and sound quality is not bad. But like other AirPods, they usually have a lifespan of aorund 2 years before things start to break and they are basically irreparable Sound quality is good. But at this price point I'd rather have a wired + DAC setup. Best wireless Apple headphones to date. Looks more repairable than the other AirPods

The original AirPods was launched together with the iPhone 7. Apple first created a problem: the removal of the headphone jack in the then new iPhone 7 and come up with a solution: AirPods, Apple wireless bluetooth headphone solution. And then, a new Fortune 500 company is born. The AirPods was a resounding success: the revenue come this product line alone rival Adobe entire earnings. So Apple comes with more improvements which further expand Apple bottom line, the Pro (AirPods with active noise canceling) and the Max (wireless headphones with active noise cancellation). Overall, the products are of high quality but the major complaint is the lack of repairability for such an expensive product.

Best Feature Sounds good for $99. Apple Ecosystem integration. You can tap the thing using your iPhone and immediately can control the HomePod Mini Best sounding smart speaker. Can get very loud and crisp
Verdict Price competitive and Siri is not as bad as everyone says. Apple ecosystem integration is what set it apart Best sounding smart speaker ever. Unfortunately, that is not what people are looking for in a smart speaker. That and the price.

The HomePod line is Apple entry to the smart speaker market. The first one is the HomePod which was engineered primary for sound that happens to have Siri. The two biggest downfall for the original HomePod was the price ($349 at launch) and Siri not be nowhere near good as the competition. Furthermore, the roll out was limited so it does not have the same market reach like the competitor.

The next HomePod, the HomePod Mini was more competitive with a $99 price and new features that compliments the Apple Ecosystem. Siri, despite vastly improved since the launch of the first HomePod is still nowhere near the competition, Alexa of Amazon and Google Assistant. We will be watching this space closely.
