There have been rumors that Apple could be making the eventual shift from Intel chipsets on their Mac computers to ARM powered chipsets created by Apple themselves. Given Apple’s reliance on their own hardware, this rumor hardly comes as a surprise, and after years of rumors, it seems that those rumors could come to fruition in 2020.
The iMac’s sleek design is beautiful to look at, but in terms of functionality, the USB ports behind the computer does make it a tad hard to reach, especially if you plan on connecting and disconnecting peripherals often. However the good news is that Satechi might have the solution for you.
Due to the fact that our computers can sometimes run a bit hot under intense operations, this is why there are various spots that allow for air to come in and be sucked out to help cool it down. This also means that dust can get in, but that’s why when it comes to desktop computers, a lot of them actually come with dust filters that can be easily removed […]
We doubt that anyone has ever equated Apple with being cheap or affordable, but if you’re hoping to save some money, you might be interested to learn that Apple has announced on their website that they will be hosting a four-day sale starting on Black Friday and it will last through Cyber Monday.
Apple’s products have never been referred to as cheap. However if for whatever reason you must own an Apple product, then chances are you might already be familiar with the fact that Apple sells refurbished products on its website. In fact the company has recently launched a redesigned online refurbished store.
Apple has confirmed that come 30th October, they will be hosting an event. The company has not confirmed what the event will be about, but it has been largely speculated that the event would most likely see Apple announce new iPads, but now there is more evidence that could indicate that we might see new Mac computers as well.
While Apple might have refreshed some of its products already, such as the MacBook Pro and the iPhone, there are still several products that Apple has yet to update. This includes the iPad Pro, the MacBook Air, the 12-inch MacBook, and the iMac. Many expected these devices to be announced this month, and it looks like Apple has finally confirmed it.
For years there have been talks that Apple could eventually ditch Intel and start making ARM-powered Mac computers. When exactly that will happen remains to be seen, but notable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo seems to think that it might not be too far off into the future, and that it could happen as early as 2020 or 2021.
Given the size of the largest iPad Pro, it’s not surprising that more people are starting to think of these tablets as potential laptop replacements (depending on your needs). Their size also means that they are great to double up as a secondary display, especially if you work outside with a Mac laptop.
The other day according to leaked internal documents at Apple, it was revealed that third-party repairs for Apple’s newer MacBook Pros and the iMac Pro might no longer be possible. This is due to the use of proprietary diagnostic software that would be required to check against the integrity of the T2 security chip in order for the computers to function.
When it comes to repairing Apple products, Apple is rather strict about it. Basically they try to encourage all their customers to send it directly to Apple or to an authorized service provider, but the only problem with that is that usually official repair services tend to cost more, and so do official parts, resulting in customers going to third-party services instead.
Apple has suppliers from all over the world, such as China, Taiwan, just to name a few. However in a report from DigiTimes, it seems that Apple could be making the move to recruit more suppliers in China and shift away from Taiwan in a bid to help reduce their costs. The report cites how this shift has resulted in some Taiwanese suppliers being forced to seek out new businesses.
A lot of companies rely heavily on ARM and their chips. This is because for the most part, a lot of companies use ARM’s architecture for their chips that can be found in plenty of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. In fact earlier this year, companies such as Lenovo launched laptops that are powered by ARM-based chips.
It is generally thought that a computer fresh from the factory is pretty much as secure as it gets, before software is installed and it is connected to the internet. However that might not be the case with Apple’s Mac computer as security researchers have discovered a bug that could allow Macs to be hacked even before the user logs in for the first time.
