According to the rumors, Apple is apparently looking to make the move to using mini LED display panels in devices. To date, that has not happened and Apple is currently using a mix of LCD and OLEDs from product to product (like LCDs for laptops and desktops, and OLEDs for its iPhones and Apple Watch).
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.
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.
Apple’s Touch Bar feature is kind of hit or miss. While it is no doubt a fantastic idea on paper, in reality, it isn’t quite the killer feature that we’re sure Apple was hoping it would be and how it would change the landscape of laptop computing. However, the good news is that Apple could apparently be working on a second-gen Touch Bar.
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.
Recently, it seems that some MacBook owners are seeing a message when their laptops are plugged into the charger where it says “Not Charging”. If you are freaking out and think that there could be something wrong with your laptop, not to worry because in a recently released support document, Apple explains why.
Apple is making their own chipsets for use in their Mac computers, that much we know. However, this raises an interesting question because if Apple’s chipsets can rival or outperform those of Intel, would Apple consider maybe selling their technology to other companies who might want something similar for themselves?
Earlier this year, Apple announced a refresh to the 13-inch MacBook Pro. It came with updated processors and the new scissor switch Magic Keyboard. However, it seems that Apple could be getting ready to update the 13-inch MacBook Pro again, but this time, it will come with Apple’s custom silicon instead.
Due to a lot of computers and laptops these days coming with built-in webcams, we’re sure that there are also some users who might be concerned with the privacy implications that this might have. This is because there might be some who are concerned that hackers could somehow access the cameras on their devices to spy on them.
During WWDC 2020, Apple announced that they would be transitioning away from Intel processors to custom ARM-based chipsets. It is largely expected that the first ARM-based MacBook Pro will be arriving later in the year, and now thanks to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, we might have an idea of what to expect in 2021.
Rumors of a 14-inch MacBook Pro first made an appearance back in 2019, but if you were hoping to see it launch this year, prepare to be disappointed. This is according to a report from research firm TrendForce in which they allege that production of the laptop is only expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021.
When Apple announced their transition from Intel processors on their computers to a custom ARM-based silicon, naturally there are some questions regarding compatibility. This was mostly software related, but what about hardware? For those who might have been concerned about Thunderbolt, it seems that Apple will continue to use the standard in future devices.
We’re not sure how many of you remember, but it has been about 8 years since Apple first introduced the Retina MacBook Pro. For those who do remember and for those who are actually still using it today, you might want to take note that the laptop has now been listed as officially obsolete.
