Tech giant Apple unveiled its next line-up of MacBook Pro with new M1 chips, next-generation AirPods, and other products.
This was also the time for Apple to celebrate the contribution of its Indian-origin women techies.
Apple CEO Tim Cook set the tone of the show detailing its latest products and services during the ‘Unleashed’ event at Apple Park in Cupertino, California.
The new M1 chips have helped propel Mac sales, which were up 32% to $26 billion in the first nine months of Apple’s fiscal 2021.
After Cook, Susmita Dutta who is the engineering program manager for SoC (system-on-chip) for audio products, introduced the next-generation AirPods.
Dutta’s Linkedin profile says that she is a Madras University graduate in engineering and joined Apple nearly four years ago as a system test design lead.
Prior to this, she had worked at GE Healthcare for more than seven years as a lead system designer (ABUS Ultrasound) in California.
After Dutta, Shruti Haldea from the Mac team joined the stage with top company executives.
She presented Apple’s new and all-powerful MacBook Pro with next-gen M1 chips.
She took the audience through the machine that is meant primarily for developers, filmmakers, creators, and innovators.
Haldea has been working at Apple for more than 12 years.
An MBA from Harvard Business School, she joined Apple as a global supply manager and became product line manager for Pro Mac in 2019.
In April 2021, Navpreet Kaloty had presented iMac at Apple’s ‘Spring Loaded’.
A Bachelor of Applied Science in mechanical engineering from the University of Waterloo, Kaloty is an engineering programme manager at Apple’s Cupertino headquarters.
This was a proud moment for Indian people and many took to Twitter to show their happiness.
