For a while now, we have been hearing rumors that Apple could finally give the iMac a brand new design. While there’s nothing wrong with the new design, it does feel a bit dated, especially with the massive bezels and the huge chin at the bottom. The good news, for those who are a bit sick of this design, is that Apple will be making some drastic changes soon.
Now that Apple has given its MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini the M1 chipset, this leaves the iMac, iMac Pro, and Mac Pro. While we can’t speak for the latter two devices, it seems that the iMac could be getting an M1 refresh in the near future, or at least that’s what leakster L0vetodream seems to imply.
Right now when it comes to buying a new Apple product, you’d have to buy it outright, or get it on an installment plan from a carrier if they’re selling it. You can also trade-in an older device and use the credit towards a new one. However, it seems that maybe in the future, Apple could consider introducing a hardware-based subscription.
So you own a Mac and you find that it might be slowing down, so maybe it’s time for upgrade, but how do you check how much RAM you have to begin with? Check out our guide for the details.
While Apple products are expensive, they do hold their resale value especially if you take care of them really well, where even after a couple of years, devices like the iPhone can still sell for a bit of money secondhand. This is why they’re especially valuable for thieves who believe that they can fence stolen Apple goods.
With every iOS and macOS update, it feels like Apple is one step closer to marrying the two operating systems, resulting in a series of devices that blend together the technology of the iPhones and Mac computers. With the launch of the M1 chipset, a chipset that’s based on the A-series found in the iPhone and iPad, it certainly feels that way.
Apple is expected to officially unveil their new Apple Silicon-powered Mac computers tomorrow, or at least some of the lineup. There are many questions that users probably have about the upcoming computers, like app compatibility and availability, performance, and also how much these computers could cost.
Next week, Apple is expected to introduce their brand new Apple Silicon Mac computers, where the initial computers will be more focused on laptops, but eventually Apple will extend it to desktop computers like the iMac. We have heard rumors that Apple could also eventually introduce a redesigned iMac in 2021, which is something to be excited about.
It has been largely rumored that Apple will be hosting an event this month in which the company will officially introduce the world to its first Apple Silicon powered computers. This isn’t that much of a stretch to think that it’s true because Apple did previously confirm that they will be launching the computers by the end of the year.
Recently it was revealed in the macOS 11.0.1 beta that Apple has at least three unannounced Mac computers. It is largely expected that at least some of these computers could be the new Apple Silicon computers that Apple had announced earlier this year, and the company’s CEO seems to be hinting at that.
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.
