With the 2020 iPhones, Apple is expected to introduce the A14 chipset. Everytime Apple releases a new chipset, it becomes faster and more efficient and overall, just more powerful than its predecessor. However, with the A14, it could take things to a whole new level, according to a report from Macworld.
According to the rumors from back in 2019, it was suggested that Apple could be working on new keyboards for their MacBook Pro laptops. This was later confirmed to be true when the 16-inch MacBook Pro was launched. The rumors also suggested that these changes will arrive in 2020 for the 13-inch models.
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.
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.
With the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, Apple made some design changes to the Touch Bar portion of the laptop, where they added a physical Esc key and also separated Touch ID from the Touch Bar itself. However, one of the changes that wasn’t widely-advertised is how Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro was changed from capacitive to optical.
Last week according to user reports, it seems that some 16-inch MacBook Pro owners were reporting that they were hearing popping sounds emitting from their speakers. Thankfully, if you’re the owner of a laptop that is having this issue, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has acknowledged the issue and will be releasing a software fix for it.
Apple’s new 16-inch MacBook Pro does not come cheap, although early reviews have suggested that it could be well-worth your money as many seem to be pretty thrilled with its performance, size, and also its keyboard, which sees Apple ditch the butterfly switches in favor of more traditional scissor switches.
If you own a 2019 13-inch MacBook Pro and you’re experiencing unexpected shut downs, know that you’re not alone. Apple has recently shared a support document in which they are acknowledging that there are some entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro models that are experiencing this problem.
It was only a couple of years ago when Apple finally hopped onto the OLED bandwagon as far as its smartphones were concerned. The rest of Apple’s products, save for the Apple Watch, continue to rely on LCD, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but there are certain advantages of OLED that we’re sure many would like to see brought over to the iPad and Mac computers.
With the launch of the 16-inch MacBook Pro, Apple introduced its largest laptop to date. For the most part, the design of the laptop is the same as its predecessors save for the larger screen, and even internally, the way the components are laid out also appears to be similar, with the exception of a new keyboard and also new thermal architecture.
Last week, Apple introduced the 16-inch MacBook Pro where they also brought a new “Magic Keyboard” to the laptop. Based on the teardown, this is essentially the same old scissor mechanism used in earlier MacBooks before the introduction of the butterfly switch, along with some added improvements that are said to improve key stability.
With the launch of the 16-inch MacBook Pro, a somewhat unconventional size for laptops, this has led to the possibility of Apple maybe exploring other display sizes for its laptop lineup. This was a question that YouTuber Jonathan Morrison posed to Apple exec Phil Schiller during an interview, where he asked about the possibility of a 14-inch MacBook Pro.
Several years ago when Apple first introduced their new MacBook laptop, they also introduced a new keyboard design which used butterfly switches. The idea was that this would create a thinner keyboard profile which in turn would allow Apple to slim down its laptop even further, a mantra the company had been pursuing for a while now.
With the launch of the 16-inch MacBook Pro, it represents Apple’s biggest and most powerful laptop to date. While a laptop is clearly designed to be used on the go, we imagine that there are some who plan to use it while at home or at the office as well, and as such, will probably connect it to external monitors.
