⚠️ Compiler Error

This week's theme: Apple releases in 2020!

  1. March of 2020 saw the release of many new updates, including the Powerbeats: a low cost wired version of the Powerbeats Pro and an upgrade to the Powerbeats 3.
  1. The Mac mini was updated not once, but three times in 2020, offering lower-priced storage options back in March, a limited release Developer Transition Kit in June, followed by the much-anticipated M1 transition in November.
  1. Also updated twice in 2020, the March update of the MacBook Air did away with the rose gold color option, but replaced the keyboard, introducing TouchID without a TouchBar for the first time.
  1. In true Mac Pro fashion, Apple kept its promise and released Apple Fitness+ before the end of 2020, completing Apple’s Apple One offering, announced back in September.
