Detailed view of the webcam of the new MacBook Pro Pro Pro and M1 Max
At the beginning of the week, we finally saw the introduction of the long-awaited MacBook Pro. The new generation is available in two variants, which differ from each other by the diagonal of the display, respectively 14 ″ and 16 ″ laptops. In the case of this novelty, the Cupertian giant bet on a considerable dose of changes and thus certainly pleased a large group of apple growers. In addition to drastically higher performance, a significantly better display, the removal of the Touch Bar and the return of some ports, we also saw something else. This is, of course, the new FaceTime HD camera in this regard. According to Apple, this is still the best camera in apple computers ever.

What is hidden in the cutout in the display of the new MacBook Pro
The petitioners' pleas were heard
Apple has faced fierce criticism for a long time over the previous FaceTime HD camera, even from the ranks of the apples themselves. But no wonder. The mentioned earlier camera offered only a resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels, which is simply woefully small in today's conditions. However, resolution was not the only stumbling block. Of course, the quality itself was below average. Apple tried to solve this easily with the advent of the M1 chip, which was also designed to easily improve quality. Of course, 720p can't work wonders in this direction.

So it is quite understandable why the apple makers actually complained about something similar. After all, we, members of the Jablíčkář editorial office, also belong to this camp. Anyway, the change came this year with the new 14 ″ and 16 ″ MacBooks Pro, which bet on the new FaceTime HD camera, but this time with 1080p (Full HD) resolution. The image quality should thus be significantly increased, which is also helped by the use of a larger sensor. In the end, these changes can take care of twice as good quality, especially in poorer lighting conditions. Apple also boasted a luminosity of f / 2.0 in this respect. But how it was with the previous generation is unclear – some users just estimate that it could be about f / 2.4, which unfortunately has never been officially confirmed.
Cruel tax in the form of a cutout
Was this change worth it, considering the fact that along with the better camera came the top cutout in the display? Notch or cutout is another area for which Apple is reaping considerable criticism, specifically with its apple phones. It is therefore not entirely clear why, after years of criticism and ridicule from users of competing phones, it is bringing the same solution to its laptops. The new 14 ″ and 16 ″ MacBooks Pro are not on sale anyway, so it is not entirely clear whether the cutout will really be such a big obstacle or not. We will have to wait a while for more detailed information. However, the programs will probably be aligned below the viewport, which is why it should not matter. This can be seen, among other things, in this picture from the introduction of the new laptops.

At the same time, the question arises as to whether devices such as the MacBook Air or the 13 ″ MacBook Pro will also experience better webcams. We will probably find out in the first half of next year. The arrival of the new generation MacBook Air, which should follow the example of the 24 ″ iMac, bet on more vivid color combinations and show the world the successor of the M1 chip, ie the M2 chip, has been talked about for a long time.
