Given that Apple has officially announced that they will begin to transition from Intel processors to their own chipsets, it’s really only a matter of time before the company’s entire lineup of Mac computers shifts to the company’s Apple Silicon chipsets, like the iMac in which an Apple Silicon refresh is expected in first half of 2021.
A rumor from earlier this month suggested that Apple could be holding another virtual event next month where they will be unveiling their first commercially available Apple Silicon powered Mac computers. Now according to a tweet by leakster Jon Prosser, he claims that the event will be held on the 17th of November.
Apple’s iPhone event will probably largely focus on the iPhone, and as such, if you were hoping for details surrounding Apple’s upcoming computers that will be powered by the Apple Silicon, you might have to wait until November. However, it seems that it could be worth the wait as a bunch of model numbers have been leaked.
When Apple first announced their plans to launch ARM-based Macs, they also stated that we would be able to expect the first Apple Silicon Mac computers by the end of the year. Now we might know when to expect them, at least that’s according to a report from Bloomberg in which Mark Gurman claims that these computers will be announced in November.
If there is one reason to look forward to the update to macOS Big Sur, it is because with the update to the operating system, Netflix users will finally be able to enjoy Netflix streams in 4K. Prior to that, the streams were capped at 1080p, so even if you had a 4K Netflix subscription, you couldn’t really take full advantage of it.
Not too long ago, Apple updated its 27-inch iMac to what could possibly be the last ever Intel-based iMac. It is a powerful computer with an upgraded webcam, but unfortunately for some users, it seems that they are experiencing graphical glitches when they are using their computers.
We know that sometimes buying extended warranty can feel a bit like a rip-off, but there are moments when something happens to your device and you’re glad that you did. Now, AppleCare+ is by no means cheap as far as extended warranties are concerned, but it seems that it is now actually more worth it than ever.
When Apple updated the iMac earlier this month, the company kept the same design and it felt like it was mostly about slightly upgraded hardware. This led to speculation that the company was probably holding off on introducing its new design for its own custom silicon, and it looks like we’ll have to wait until 2021 to find out.
One of the options that Apple has offered to 2020 iMac customers is the ability to configure the computer to come with the Radeon Pro 5700 XT with 16GB of GDDR6 memory. This is an additional $500 over the default GPU option, but it seems that this particular configuration is causing some display-related issues.
There is a lot of excitement, anticipation, and understandably some skepticism surrounding Apple’s plans to transition away from Intel in favor of using their own custom ARM-based chipsets. We’ve all seen the benchmarks and while they are promising, it’s hard to beat real world tests and day-to-day usage to get a better idea of what to expect.
Apple would obviously love if all customers were to send their computers in to get it repaired versus sending it to third-party stores. Unfortunately, the cost of getting your Mac repaired officially can be expensive, which is why third-party repair shops are more appealing, but there is also the question of whether or not these repairs are reliable and if parts are genuine.
After more than a year, just the other day Apple finally updated its iMac where they gave the 27-inch iMac a refresh and an upgrade in terms of hardware specs. This included the use of newer Intel processors, the shift to full SSDs, and also a much-requested upgrade to the webcam where it now shoots in 1080p.
Are you planning on reselling your old Mac? You definitely want to clear it out before doing so, and here are the steps you should follow to get your Mac ready for a resale.
It has been more than a year since Apple last refreshed its iMacs. The good news is that if you were hoping to see the iMacs updated with newer hardware, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has since announced that they have finally given its 27-inch iMac a long overdue hardware refresh.
