Apple Could Revisit The Idea Of Titanium MacBooks
Apple’s laptops and computers in general are made out of aluminum. This is more or less the standard choice of materials for a lot of electronics these days, but according to a patent discovered by Patently Apple, it seems that Apple could be interested in exploring other materials, such as titanium.

5G Capable MacBook In The Works, But Don’t Expect To See It So Soon
With our smartphones and tablets being able to connect to the internet using cellular connectivity, we actually have to wonder why such a feature isn’t as widely-available in laptops. There are cellular-capable laptops, but oddly enough, they aren’t as common as one might think even though the benefits of such devices are pretty obvious.

Microsoft Takes Aim At Apple In New Surface Pro 7 Ad
Microsoft and Apple’s rivalry dates back decades, even though Microsoft did help Apple through a tough time when Microsoft’s then-CEO, Bill Gates, bought $150 million worth of non-voting shares of Apple, and also gave them free-access to use Microsoft Office on Apple’s Mac computers.

Redesigned MacBook Pro Could See The Return Of The SD Card Slot
Apple’s MacBook laptop design has been kept more or less the same for several years now, and while it is a nice design, it would be good to see Apple shake things up a bit. We have been hearing rumors that a redesign could be on its way, and now a new report from Bloomberg has revealed a potential “new” feature.

M1 Macs Will No Longer Be Able To Sideload Unsupported iOS Apps
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.

Redesigned MacBook Pro Could Take Some Design Cues From The iPad
Apple’s current design for its laptops is getting a bit old. While it’s a solid design and there’s nothing much to dislike about it, we reckon it’s due for a change. We have heard rumors that a redesign could be coming, and now analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is sharing some of those design changes.

Apple Could Be Admitting Defeat With The Touch Bar
When Apple first introduced the Touch Bar in its MacBook Pro, they heralded it as a new way for users to interact and use their laptops. In theory, it was pretty sound. Having a dynamic touchscreen display instead of physical keys meant that users could do more things with their computers, access shortcuts, and more.

MagSafe Might Return With The Next-Gen MacBook Pro
Many MacBook users lamented when Apple decided to ditch MagSafe for charging over USB-C. One of the upsides of MagSafe was that it was quick and easy to connect and disconnect, and also prevented issues like tripping over the cable and dragging your laptop down to the ground with you.

Apple Will Be Making A ‘Big Announcement’ Tomorrow
It is largely expected that Apple will be hosting an event in the coming months where they are expected to unveil new products like a new iPad, maybe the AirTags, and possibly more, but it seems that the company has a “big announcement” that they are planning on making tomorrow.

Future MacBook Chargers Could Get A Lot Smaller
Right now, a lot of laptop chargers, like the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, are huge bricks that are heavy and quite troublesome to bring around. However, that’s due to the limitations of existing technology, but the good news for MacBook owners is that Apple could soon switch to much smaller chargers.

Apple Adjusts Trade-In Value For Some Of Its Products
One of the ways to save money on a new product would be to trade-in an older product. Apple is a company that accepts trade-ins of its older products and you get credit towards its newer ones. However, it seems that the company has recently made some adjustments to the value of some of their devices.

Analysts Believe Apple Could One Day Introduce Hardware Subscriptions
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.

Future MacBooks Could Come In A Matte Black Finish
Apple’s MacBooks are currently offered in a couple of different colors, although for the longest time ever, they were only offered in silver. Now, we have been hearing rumors that Apple could actually be working on a redesigned series of MacBooks, and perhaps one of them (or all of them) could eventually come with a matte black finish option.

Mini LED MacBook Pro Rumored For 2021
For the most part, a lot of laptops still use LCD for their displays today. There is a reason for this and that is cost, where larger OLED panels would obviously cost a lot more compared to making a smaller OLED screen for a device like a smartphone. This holds true for Apple’s current MacBook lineup where the only OLED screen is in the Touch Bar.

Apple Could Bring Force Touch To The MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar
From what we can tell, Apple’s ambitions for pressure-sensitive displays on their mobile devices are pretty much dead, even when it comes to wearables like the Apple Watch where it first debuted. However, it could possibly continue to live on in Apple’s computing devices like the MacBook Pro.

Apple’s Upcoming Redesigned MacBooks Will Still Feature Intel Processors
According to a recent rumor, it was suggested that in 2021, Apple could finally introduce redesigned MacBook laptops. It was speculated that this would be the M1 (or M2) based MacBooks, but it turns out it will also apply to Intel based MacBooks. This is according to @L0vetodream who has in the past been pretty accurate with their leaks.

Apple Watch, MacBooks To Get Redesign In 2021
One of the chief criticisms that we saw when Apple launched the M1 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro is that while the innards have changed, externally, they’re still the same. It’s not necessarily a bad thing that Apple has kept the design since it works rather well, but at the same time, many expected Apple to come up with something new for its new chipsets.

Apple’s New M1 Macs Can Unofficially Support Up To 6 Displays
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.

M1 MacBook Pro With 8GB RAM VS 16GB RAM
With Apple’s new M1 Mac computers, users can choose between 8GB or 16GB of RAM. Now obviously RAM plays a role in determining the performance of a computer, but the question is, is it worth spending that extra $200 to upgrade from 8GB to 16GB? In a video uploaded by Max Tech, he shows the difference between the two RAM configurations on the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
