For years, it has been rumored that Apple was considering moving away from using Intel’s processors to their own custom creations based on the ARM architecture. It looks like those rumors have finally been proven true because at WWDC 2020, Apple has officially confirmed that they will be moving away from Intel’s processors to their own custom Apple silicon.
Last week, it was reported that starting this week, Mac users who are looking to trade in theri Mac computers would be able to do so in-store and in-person. For those who have a Mac they’d like to trade in, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple’s physical stores will now be accepting trade-ins.
Apple’s Mac computers aren’t necessarily the cheapest around, but thankfully Apple does have a trade-in feature on its website where customers can trade-in their older Mac computers. However, this trade-in feature has largely been a feature of its online website, and physical trade-ins via the Apple Stores weren’t allowed.
There’s no denying the power of Apple’s new Mac Pro, but there’s also no denying how much it costs, and there’s even no way of denying that some of the accessories that Apple is selling for the computer are just ridiculously priced. Take for example the wheels for the Mac Pro that allows it to be easily moved around.
Apple’s Mac Pro has been designed to be one of the most powerful computers in the market today, or at least that’s how it’s being positioned. Users can configure it to the max where you could stuff as much as 1.5TB of RAM into it, meaning that in theory, it should be able to handle just about anything you throw at it.
AirDrop is Apple’s proprietary way of transferring files from one device to another, and here’s how you can use it.
With most of Apple’s products, it is usually the company who decides how your devices function. This means that compared to other products and platforms, users do not have much control over it. For example, when it comes to determining whether to use the discrete GPU versus the GPU on the motherboard, this is entirely left to macOS to decide.
When Apple’s Mac Pro was released, it was discovered that if you were to fully spec out the computer with the highest-end specs possible, it would cost you around $53,000. If you thought that was already pretty expensive, then you might be interested to learn that it is about to get a bit more expensive than that.
Apple’s new Mac Pro is pretty expensive with a base starting price of $5,000. The computer is clearly aimed at industry professionals who might have the need for all that raw power and are willing to pay for it, but now thanks to new benchmark scores spotted on Geekbench 5, it seems a bit disappointing.
Apple is a company that loves doing everything themselves. The iPhone is a perfect example of that, where it not only runs software made by Apple, but there are also components inside the iPhone that have been designed by Apple as well. This is why many are suggesting that Apple could be interesting in snapping up Broadcom’s RF wireless chip business.
A lot of our tech these days feels like they are meant to be replaced and not repaired. This makes financial sense as companies would much rather us buy a brand new product rather than hold onto a product for a long time and constantly repairing it when it gets broken. However, Apple’s new Mac Pro seems to be bucking that trend.
Ever since Apple’s Mac Pro was announced, many have made fun of the computer’s design, where due to the use of numerous holes, some have made comparisons to a cheese grater. Taking the joke and running with it are the good folks over at iFixit, where during their uncasing of the computer, they decided to see if the computer would make for a good cheese grater.
If you’ve been looking forward to getting your hands on Apple’s new Mac Pro, you might have heard that it is now available for order. The base model of the new Mac Pro does not come cheap, but it seems that if it isn’t powerful enough for your needs and would like to upgrade it, prepare to empty your bank account.
Earlier this year, Apple announced their new Mac Pro desktop computers as well as the new Pro Display XDR. If you have been looking forward to either of these devices, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple finally has a release date for both of them and it is currently set for a release on the 10th of December.
