There are only a few days left until the end of 2020, a year we’ll probably never forget. It was a very different year for everyone, including Apple. The company was forced to delay the devices and present them in entirely new ways.
But as it happens every year, there are better and worse devices. It may be a little less objective, but in our opinion it is the best and the worst that Apple presented in 2020.
Best Apple Devices of 2020
Let’s start with the good news. Let’s be tense 6 Apple devices or products who truly deserve to be named the best of the year.
MacBook Air chip with M1
Switching to their own processors was very risky, but it seems that Apple did it in an unbeatable way. The new M1 chip rivals much higher-end processors in terms of power and is just Apple’s first approximation.
Among the 3 Macs with an M1 processor, we chose the MacBook Air because it is probably the best value for money. This MacBook Air is cheaper than the processor with Intel, and it has more power and incredible battery life. It’s Apple’s best-selling Mac and with the M1 it’s now much better.
Something that no one has thought of that can become a very important function from now on. IPhones now have a small ring of magnets that multiply the possibilities of accessories.
Chargers, brackets, covers, batteries, almost anything you can think of can use MagSafe. Apple has done it again and a useful novelty with a lot of possibilities has been taken off its sleeve.
And we say iPhone 12, without Pro. This year the “ entry ” model is better and looks more like the Pro model than ever. We have an OLED screen, a design identical to that of its big brother, two of the three cameras and a much more affordable price.
In addition, we have already seen reductions that exceed 100 dollars, so without a doubt aims to be the best-selling smartphone of the year 2021, just like the iPhone XR and iPhone 11 were.
Another of those cool Apple products released this year. If you were paying for any of Apple’s services, it might be worth upgrading to Apple One.
You will have Apple Music, Apple Arcade, Apple TV + and iCloud in a fairly inexpensive pack. And if you use the family plan to share it with up to 6 friends or family, the savings are even higher.
IPad Air is the best iPad presented by Apple this year. A brilliantly designed device, with Touch ID on the lock button, with the company’s latest processor, the A14 Bionic, and at a much lower price point than the iPad Pro.
In addition, it is compatible with all the accessories of it. Without a doubt The iPad recommended for those who want more than the base modelIt is also available in many colors.
IPad Pro Magic Keyboard
It was introduced earlier in the year, and it’s incredibly expensive, but This is the best keyboard ever made by Apple. Both by design, the iPad floats in the air, and by its features, backlit keyboard and excellent trackpad, this is the keyboard the iPad deserves.
The worst Apple devices of 2020
Apple introduced many devices this year, and among them we chose 4 that we didn’t like anything.
Funda AirPods Max
The The AirPods Max were the last surprise of the year, and include coverage of the most curious and criticized. For us it is one of the the worst apple products in this 2020 for various reasons.
First your design, does not fully protect AirPods Max and does not look like a design created by Apple. And the second for its functions, in order for the AirPods Max to enter low power mode, it is necessary to insert them into the case, so you will always have to take it with you.
Transparent iPhone 12 case
It’s something quite personal, but I don’t like the transparent case of this year’s iPhone 12. The advantage of transparent covers is that they go unnoticed, and this year it will be impossible with the huge white circle they have on the back
Yes, I know that it is necessary to include MagSafe magnets, but I don’t like how it looks. Maybe i could have color versions to make it look like your iPhone, now it is only hidden in the white iPhone.
I also don’t understand this wallet that Apple designed, If the goal is to use Apple Pay, why do I need a wallet? In addition, it seems that when inserted into narrow pockets, it can easily fall out. It looks like a prop to give MagSafe a bit more meaning than anything else.
he This year’s iPad Pro disappointed. Same design, almost the same processor and only new features in the rear camera, one of the least used elements on the iPad. It looks like this is a transitional model to the new model that we will see in 2021.
Of course we have others devices we haven’t talked about. AirPods Max are amazing, although the price tag isn’t that high. New operating systems like iOS 14 have made a big difference. And the iPhone SE is back too. You have all of that in our review article on Apple in 2020.
