Not a fan of Apple’s macOS operating system but like the new M1 hardware that accompanies it? Then maybe installing a different operating system could be the answer, and no, we’re not talking about Windows. Thanks to the team at Corellium, it appears that they have managed to get Linux up and running on the M1 powered Mac mini.
To help deal with the initial shortage of native apps developed for the M1 chipset, Apple has allowed users to install iOS apps on M1 Mac computers. Even though iOS apps aren’t necessarily optimized for laptops or computers, it still helps to fill a void, even if it is temporary.
Right now, Apple’s M1 Mac computers do not support the running of virtualization software like Parallels or Boot Camp, which means that those looking to run Windows alongside macOS are out of luck, at least for now, and as far as official support is concerned. However, developer Alexander Graf managed to get the ARM version of Windows up and running.
Last time when it came to choosing an Apple computer, there were so many factors to consider such as which Intel processor to get, which GPU to get, how much RAM do you need, and so on. This was further complicated by Apple’s lineup where not all models had similar specs, like if you wanted a discrete GPU and a desktop form factor, you could only choose between the iMac, […]
Many praises have been heaped upon Apple’s new M1 computers, but that doesn’t mean that it is completely immune to problems. In fact, according to multiple user reports, it appears that some M1 Mac Mini users are having some connectivity issues when it comes to Bluetooth devices pairing with the computer.
According to the official specs listed by Apple, Apple’s new M1 powered Mac mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro will only support anywhere between 1-2 external displays. This is versus the Intel-powered variants that can support more, but is the limit of 1-2 displays true? It turns out not really.
Apple’s computers have typically never really been known for their gaming capabilities. While they do play games just fine, Mac users probably can’t really expect to run games at the same higher level settings that PC gamers can, so the question is, with the new M1 chips that ditches Intel and AMD, how will Apple’s computers handle games?
Apple’s transition to their own custom chipsets has been called “brave” by some, and we have to agree to a certain extent. Intel is pretty much the dominating hardware of choice when it comes to computer processors, with many applications designed for its hardware, so for Apple to launch something new in such an established ecosystem does seem risky.
The concept of ARM-based computers isn’t new, and in fact, other companies have attempted this in the past. Microsoft is one of those companies where they launched the Surface Pro X back in 2019. However, it seems that despite it being a newer device, it appears that Geekbench listings have revealed that Apple’s Mac Mini powered by the A12Z Bionic chipset has managed to outperform it.
Both Apple’s iMac and Mac Mini computers have not been updated for quite a while, with the last iMac refresh taking place about a year ago, and the Mac Mini being more than a year ago. However, there is some good news as it appears that there could be refreshes to either product on the horizon.
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.
One of the upsides of the Mac Mini is that it is small and portable which means that placing it anywhere in your home is possible, as long as you have a display that you can attach to it (along with a keyboard and mouse). However if you’d rather not get a separate display, it seems that the folks at Luna Display have stumbled upon a pretty cool alternative.
Apple’s computers haven’t exactly been known to be repair-friendly. This is one of the company’s main criticisms as Apple’s official repairs tend to be pretty expensive. However in the case of Apple’s newly-launched Mac Mini, it turns out that it isn’t as hard to fix compared to some of the company’s other computers.
Earlier today, Apple introduced a new iPad Pro, a new Mac Mini, and a refreshed and redesigned MacBook Air. For the most part the new products don’t go too crazy in terms of their new pricing, but in case you do want to go all out in terms of maxing out the specs and storage, it seems that it will not come cheap.
Apple conducted an event today for its new Macs and iPads in New York. Aside from unveiling the products, it also provided some numbers about how the Mac has been doing. Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed during the event that there are more than 100 million Macs now in use across the globe.
The Mac Mini was last refreshed back in 2014, meaning that it has been nearly five years since the device was refreshed and updated. There have been rumors that Apple was planning to revive the computer, and sure enough at the company’s event today, the Cupertino company has finally refreshed its Mac Mini lineup.
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.
As far as Apple’s professional computers are concerned, it has largely been about the Mac Pro and MacBook Pro, but Apple expanded on that when they launched the iMac Pro, and now it looks like we could be getting a pro-focused Mac mini this year as well. This is according to a report from Bloomberg who claims that a Mac mini Pro could be launching this year.
Apple is expected to launch a handful of new products in the coming months. The new iPads with Face ID are at the top of the list alongside three new iPhone models. A new Apple Watch might possibly on the list as well. A well known Apple analyst now predicts that the company could release the much awaited update for the Mac mini this year as well.
Nobody is going to hold a grudge against you if you forgot about the Mac mini. Apple hasn’t updated this product in over three years but it seems that the company isn’t pulling the plug on the Mac mini just yet. In response to a query about the Mac mini’s future, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that it remains an “important part” of Apple’s product lineup.
