Apple: the next iMac would adopt a new design and an Apple Silicon processor this year

For the first time since 2012, Apple would finally renew the design of its iMac. In 2021, Apple is preparing at least three new desktop Macs. According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who also released information on future MacBook Pros and iPhone 12 successors in recent days, Apple will announce an iMac and two Mac Pros in 2021. The transition to Apple Silicon processors gives a new blows to the computers of the Californian giant.     iMac: finally an edge-to-edge screen This year, the iMac could change completely. Mark Gurman indicates that the borders of his screen would be much smaller, like Pro Display XDR, the ultra high-end screen launched by Apple with the Mac Pro in 2019. The back of the computer would also abandon the curvature in favor of a completely flat frame.  This new iMac would also be equipped with an Apple Silicon processor, probably a more powerful chip than the Apple M1 chip currently present in the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac mini.

Netflix: why the platform ends its free month for maximum countries?

Netflix has done away with its free month. From now on, you will need to subscribe to take advantage of the service when you register. At the end of the weekend, Netflix discreetly deleted its free one-month trial offer. Available since the beginning of the service, this offer allowed to taste Netflix free of charge for a month, and thus to get an idea of ​​the extent of the catalog (and of course push the user to remain subscribed after the trial period ). It was also a way for some to take advantage of the free streaming video service, by creating different email addresses and changing accounts each month. Unfortunately, this manipulation will no longer be possible, because you will necessarily have to get your hands on the wallet to register and take advantage of Netflix.

The prices remain unchanged: count 7.99 euros/usd per month for the "Essential" package (one screen, SD quality), 11.99 euros/usd per month for the "Standard" package (two screens, HD), and finally 15, 99 euros/usd per month for the “Premium” package (four screens, 4K / UHD). Despite the end of this trial period, Netflix nevertheless offers to test another formula than the one you had subscribed to for a month at no additional cost. Thus, if you had opted for the "Essential" formula at 7.99 euros per month, you will be able to switch to the "Standard" or "Premium" formula for one month without a rate increase.

The reason that pushed Netflix to delete its free month remains a mystery, especially since all of its other competitors offer this trial offer, whether it's Amazon Prime Video, OCS, Canal + Series or even Apple TV + (only one week for the latter). Furthermore, this change seems to affect only France, Belgium and Spain at the time of writing, since the free month is still available across the Atlantic. In addition, Netflix has not announced anywhere that it plans to remove the free month.


 
After all, we must admit that now that Netflix is ​​well established, the free month is no longer of any use for the firm co-founded by Reed Hastings, since it was primarily there to attract customers. We also suspect that this offer was able to cut Netflix's revenues, if some users took advantage of it to take advantage of the service for free by changing accounts month after month, even if the streaming giant did not communicate any figures in relationship with this practice. Also, Netflix will soon experience a storm, with the arrival of Disney + on March 24 in Europe. However, we don't know if Disney + will offer a free trial offer when it arrives, even if it is the case in the United States.
