On Star Wars Mean solar day, Apple tree appear the next-generation 13-inch MacBook Pro. The new laptop finally replaces the heavily criticized butterfly mechanism with a Magic Keyboard, while offer beefed-up internals at the same price points as previous models. Unfortunately, there’s at least one familiar area where the machine disappoints.

Similar many MacBooks before it, the 2020 13-inch MacBook Pro includes an inferior 720p FaceTime HD photographic camera.

Why is this? Perchance even Tim Melt doesn’t know for sure. But until Apple makes a camera alter, especially to the MacBook Pro lineup, you’re going to see stories similar this bashing one of of the company’due south most expensive products on the market.

Ugh, Apple

As I noted earlier this week, the new 13-inch Mac offers double the RAM and storage found on the 2019 model. It likewise includes a meliorate chipset and graphics bill of fare. Across this (and the new keyboard), the 2 models are primarily the same, starting with the paltry 720p FaceTime Hard disk camera.

Proceed in mind, yous become this camera, regardless of how much you pay for the laptop. The to the lowest degree expensive 13-inch MacBook Pro (2020) is $ane,299 while the near expensive volition prepare you back $iii,599.

Though Apple is ofttimes criticized for selling
mobile devices, even the $399 iPhone SE (2020) offers a better front-facing camera than whatever of the 2019/2020 MacBooks. Yous can certainly contend it’south much more essential to have a better camera on your iPhone.

Nevertheless, the MacBook Pro deserves at least
camera update at this indicate, specially when y’all consider how much Apple charges for the laptops. Aggravating trivia: a 720p FaceTime HD camera has come on every MacBook Pro, going dorsum to the early 2011 model!

What I said in March when the MacBook Air (2020) was released should exist repeated now with the new 13-inch MacBook Pro:

Apple has often made truly bizarre cost-cutting moves when it comes to hardware. For years, for example, the company has insisted on having entry-level iPhones with 16GB of storage. Including an outdated 5W USB Power Adapter with iPhones is another archetype Apple move as is removing extensions from Mac power adapters…. Every bit it stands, shame, shame, Cupertino.
