The most prominent improvement this year is the significant increase in performance we see compared to its predecessors. This year’s MacBook features the latest eighth generation Intel 6-core and quad-core i9 processors. The processors feature up to 4.8 GHz turbo boost. These processors are up to 70 per cent faster than seventh generation processors. They give MacBook increased ability to efficiently handle high-performance jobs such as working with photos or videos.
The company has also improved on the RAM technology by introducing 32 GB DDR4 RAMS. If this doesn’t improve the laptop’s performance, I don’t know what will.
The True Tone feature is a pure genius that Apple has added to the new MacBook. The feature requires a light sensor to determine the ambient colour and brightness of the surroundings to automatically adjust the colours and brightness of the screen. If you are even a little into photography, this feature is very similar to adjusting the colour temperature in your camera for better photos. True Tone gives you relief fro the eye-pricking blue light screen. The feature can be enabled or disabled to suit your preferences.
