year 2013 in review
As we are saying goodbye to 2013, let's take a look on this year's major Apple news.
We started 2013 with iTunes 11.0.1, Safari 6.0.2, OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 for Mac computers and iOS 6.0.2 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
On Mac hardware, MacBook Air now has even longer battery life as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard built-in. At near year's end, Apple finally released the whole new re-designed Mac Pro. Except it is pretty limited, most people will need to wait until February 2014 to receive one.
The all-new Mac Pro packs unprecedented performance into an aluminium enclosure that is just 25.1 centimetres tall and one-eighth the volume of the previous generation. Mac Pro features upto 12-core Intel Xeon processors running at Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz and two workstation-class AMD FirePro GPUs that deliver up to eight times the graphics performance of the previous generation Mac Pro. On top of that, PCIe-based flash storage and ultra-fast ECC memory.
On iOS devices, in May, Apple added a new more affordable iPod touch (5th generation) with 16GB capacity but without the rear iSight camera nor the iPod Touch loop, available only in one colour.
iCloud has a new interface. Apple retired iWork.com, but the new Pages, Keynote and Numbers are now free for eligible users. Pages, Keynote and Numbers are also available free as web version (cloud). New Pages, Keynote and Numbers focused on collaboration between co-workers as friends you share the documents with. Unfortunately to maintain compatibility with Mac, iOS and browser based platforms, a few features were removed from the new iWork. Luckily, users of previous iWork'09 can still access previous versions for special features and functions.
