Phil Schiller justifies the compromises of the MacBook Pro

APPLE HAS ADDRESSED the controversy surrounding its new MacBook Pro line-up and explained why it chose to ditch the SD slot but keep the 3.5mm headphone jack.

The startup chime isn't the only thing that Apple has killed in its new MacBook Pro. Second, definitely newer cameras offer Wi-Fi connectivity but not all models have this.

Apart from that, Kuo's crystal ball also points to the maturing of the USB-C market, as well as an uptick in Touch adoption, which would be vital factors in ensuring that customers are itching to obtain an upgrade.

Apple really doesn't think including an SD card slot in your new MacBook Pro makes much sense.

Because of a couple of things.

Phil says, "it's a bit of a cumbersome slot". No matter which model you go for in the MacBook Pro 2016 range you will get a faster speed than the earlier versions. The SD Card slot is conspicuously missing, along with a full-size USB 3.0 port and HDMI out. The 8GB RAM too is soldered to the logic board, so if you need more memory for your tasks, Apple will make you buy a more powerful variant, the one with the OLED Touch Bar. So, that was a bit of a trade-off. Starting at $1,499, this 3-pound laptop features more power, thanks to a 2-GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor and Iris graphics, a brighter display, bigger touchpad and louder speakers.

Obama slams Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey for operating on 'leaks' and 'innuendo'
On Friday, Comey told Congress, "We don't know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails". A super PAC backing Hillary Clinton is following her campaign's lead onto the airwaves of MI and Colorado.

In an interview with The Independent, Philip Schiller said that wireless transfer technologies are "proving very useful" in the latest cameras nowadays.

But unlike the traditional keys, the Touch Bar adapts and changes to the app you're using - bringing interactive ways to adjust or browse through content. "Others are trying to turn the notebook into the tablet".

We now arrive to the next touchy subject; the headphone jack. The pricing for the 13-inch Pro with the Touch Bar starts at Rs 155,900 according to Apple's website, and the 15-inch Pro will start at an even more hefty Rs 205,900. He strongly, disagrees and says "We love the Mac and are as committed to it, in both desktops and notebooks, as we ever have been". Interestingly, Schiller who is often saddled with the responsibility of breaking the "bad" news - he was the one who broke the news about the death of the 3.5mm jack.

Why macOS and iOS will always be distinct "Here's one example of how they should remain distinct: the Mac from the very first has had a menu bar fixed at the top".

Then there's the Mac experience, dominated by our notebooks and that's about indirect manipulation and cursors and menus.
