With Apple slowly updating its Mac computers and introducing new Apple Silicon powered variants, it did not come as a surprise to learn that Apple could be planning something similar for the Mac Pro as well. We heard rumors that the use of the Apple Silicon meant that Apple could shrink down the computer.
Apple is expected to make a transition away from Intel to its M1 chipsets over the next year or so. We’ve already seen that happen with the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro and Mac mini, but what about Apple’s higher-end computers, like the Mac Pro? It turns out that Apple might have a slightly different approach with that.
With the Apple M1 chipsets, Apple has proven that they are able to compete with Intel on computers, and in some of the benchmarks we’ve seen, even outperform Intel. However, to be fair, computers like the Mac mini and MacBook Air weren’t exactly designed for high-performance usage, which begs the question of how Apple will handle its higher-end computers like the 16-inch MacBook Pro, iMac Pro, and Mac Pro.
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.
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.
Apple’s Mac Pro is currently the company’s largest and most powerful computer. This is largely due to the way the computer has been designed where its components are more in line with Windows-based desktop PCs that can accommodate larger GPUs, better cooling, and more storage.
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.
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.
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.
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.
