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.

Effects of containment: Moroccans consume more at all levels

Water, electricity, basic necessities. Consumption without moderation. Shopping is going up like never before. During confinement, consumption registers inconsiderate peaks. All-day use of household appliances and other electronic gadgets has resulted in a substantial increase in electricity consumption. That of water too, of course. In the absence of recent statistics on the extent of this consumption, a source internal to Lydec confirms this increase, which is, after all, normal, and tells us that the agents in the field are the only ones at the moment to have the actual levels of this water and electricity consumption.
 
Moroccans consume more at all levels

Recall that Lydec, a water and electricity distributor in Greater Casablanca, had made as the one and only proposal during this period of state of health emergency the freezing of the suspension of its services for non-payment of invoices. An insufficient measure for the Casablancans, who expected a more significant civic gesture in favor of the poorest households. That said, containment encourages overconsumption at all levels. In addition to water and electricity, Moroccans have rushed to supermarkets to get excess supplies.

An unwarranted rush since the authorities had assured that Morocco has a largely sufficient stock of food products that could cover several months. Despite government assurances, Moroccans still fear running out of food during these times of confinement where snacking day and night has become a habit for everyone. This panic increases logically with the approach of the month of Ramadan, considered to be the month of high consumption par excellence. This psychosis then seems to have taken a notch up among citizens since the influx on shops and purchasing volumes were far above normal. Busy by Moroccans, stores are always full. This is how their turnover continues to achieve absolute daily records compared to normal times.




Faced with this situation of panic, the authorities are increasing media outlets to reassure Moroccans and say that the departments concerned are mobilized to ensure regular monitoring of the situation on the markets and distribution channels, while recalling the establishment of a strategic watch committee which meets every two days to assess the situation and intervene if necessary in order to guarantee the stability of supply on the national market and avoid any possible malfunctions.
