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.

European Central Bank confirms: economy will take two years to recover from crisis

The pandemic situation in the world is evolving in dispersed order: it seems to be slowing down in France but accelerating in other European countries ... and everyone is taking the measures they deem necessary. But a big question remains: how long will the economic crisis linked to the health crisis last? About two years, according to the ECB.

European Central Bank confirms: economy will take two years to recover from crisis

Hope for a vaccine in 2021

In an interview that the chief economist of the European Central Bank (ECB), Philip Lane, gave to the newspaper Les Echos on November 22, 2020, we discover that it will be the vaccine, announced as available at the end of 2020-beginning of 2021 which will play an essential role in the recovery of the economy. For now, the ECB is watching closely "the circulation of the virus" and the health measures taken as a result, but especially the change in "consumer behavior". "It is certain that the two phenomena combined will lead to a decline in activity."
So, says Philipe Lane, "as long as the vaccine is not massively distributed, we will remain in a period of uncertainty". The vaccine, it should be distributed massively in the course of the year 2021, a plausible hypothesis, Moderna and Pfizer having announced two vaccines with an effectiveness of 95% which should have the approval for a marketing before the end. of the year 2020. 



"Long-term effects"

But the distribution of the vaccine alone will not bring the economy back to pre-crisis levels. "GDP will not return to the 2019 level before autumn 2022," announces the member of the ECB's executive board at Les Echos. It will therefore take two years, at a minimum, for the economic crisis to be really erased.
And again, it is difficult to really predict the long-term impact, so that "we do not assume that we will return to the pre-covid situation, because there will be long-term effects, for example on confidence. and savings, on the return to work. Despite the vaccine, there will be lasting damage. The European economy will emerge from this durably weakened crisis ".
