Adding to the disappointment is that Facebook has chosen not to bring its iOS apps to Mac App Store including Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger and Facebook's own app itself. Other noteworthy apps missing will be Snapchat, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+, as mentioned by 9to5 Mac.
As for the games, apps for Candy Crush, Among Us, and Real Racing 3 won't be there but Sky: Children of the Light, Subway Surfers, and Temple Run might be there upon launch.
However, as for the power, the new Macs might be as good as any other high-end Intel MacBooks that have launched previously. The company even showed a glimpse of how powerful the product can be while editing videos, during the WWDC virtual event.
