BERLIN, Nov. 19 (Xinhua) -- First-half goals from Mads Pedersen and Andre Hahn secured Augsburg a surprising 2-1 win over frontrunners Bayern Munich at the curtain raiser of the 12th round in Bundesliga on Friday.。
Bayern had a bright start into the clash and could break the deadlock with 7 minutes gone, but Omar Richards pulled over the target from inside the box.。
Augsburg responded well to Bayern's early chance and staged a well-positioned bulwark as the game clock ticked.。
The Fuggerstadter then shocked Bayern with the opener out of the blue in the 23rd minute when Andi Zeqiri's good build-up work and cross into the box allowed Pedersen to hammer home the lead into the top right corner.。
Bayern lacked in accuracy in the final third and invited Augsburg to make it two as Zeqiri dispossessed Marcel Sabitzer before finding Hahn, who nodded home the 2-0 advantage in the 35th minute.。
The German record champions responded with furious attacks and eventually halved the deficit three minutes later after Robert Lewandowski made the most of Thomas Muller's backheel lay-up.。
After the restart, Bayern continued to press forward but lacked once again in accuracy as Lewandowski volleyed a loose ball from close range over the target with five minutes into the second half.。
Augsburg focused fully on its defence and kept all its men behind the ball whereas uninspired Bayern couldn't find a gap in the host's defence.。

"My team performed very well over 90 minutes. We scored twice in the first half to pave the way for the win. Bayern increased the pressure after the restart, but we stood firm and snatched a deserved win," Augsburg head coach Markus Weinzierl said.。

原标题：苹果提升 MacBook Air 屏幕亮度，硬件规格维持不变
近日，苹果公司低调的在其网站上对 MacBook Air 的规格进行了调整，苹果网站的更新显示，配备了 13 英寸 MacBook Air 的显示屏亮度从 300 nits 调整到了 400 nits。
最新一代 MacBook Air 之前的屏幕亮度为 300 nit，远低于 MacBook Pro 机型 500 nit 的输出亮度。不过，苹果网站上的比较工具显示，MacBook Air 的规格发生了变化，有网友发现，这个比较工具将模型显示为 400 nit 亮度，而不是 300 nit。来自苹果内部的消息人士向相关媒体表示，这次的变化是针对 macOS 10.14.4 的变化而更新的，当被问及是什么具体的变化促使硬件规格进行修改时，苹果公司指出了 macOS 的发布说明，说明该版本调整了默认屏幕亮度。
从服务的角度来看，屏幕部件号没有改变，在销售库存方面，MacBook Air 自发布以来也没有出现差异化，这两点都可以表明硬件没有改变。
