Apple has updated its pro apps in order to ready them for the new MacBook Pro’s Retina display.
The redesigned MacBook Pro has 4 times the number of pixels found in the previous MacBook Pro range, and therefore Aperture, Apple’s photo editing software, has been updated to allow users to view their photographs at 4 times the resolution. Plus, it has had an entire user interface update.
Final Cut Pro X has also received an update, to make the video area in the upper corner of the video editing software 100 per cent pixel-for-pixel 1080p video. There is also the ability to have nine simultaneous streams of ProRes or up to four streams of uncompressed video.
Apple says that all apps will need to be updated in order to be compatible with the new MacBook Pros, but promises that it has been working with key developers to update their apps. Among these apps are AutoDesk’s AutoCAD and Adobe’s Photoshop, as well as games such as Diablo 3.
