According to a recent research note from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he claims that Apple could launch their first ARM-based MacBook in the later part of 2020. Now in a new note from Kuo, he believes that 2021 could also see Apple launch several ARM-based MacBook laptops as they adopt a more “aggressive processor-replacement strategy”.
While Touch ID has been used in Apple’s iPhones and iPads for several years, it took Apple a while before the feature was brought over to its MacBooks. Apple later switched to Face ID, so we imagine that it wouldn’t be entirely out of the question for the company to introduce a similar feature to its computers as well.
The idea of being able to interact with our devices without touching it isn’t anything new. In fact, Google’s Pixel 4 series introduced Motion Sense, where users could interact with the phone without having to physically touch it, and now it looks like Apple could be exploring a similar idea for future MacBook laptops.
Earlier this month, a student was reported to have fallen victim to a scam, where he thought he was purchasing a brand new MacBook laptop, but instead ended up with two bottles of lemonade. Unfortunately, it seems that despite these scams being made public, it looks like the scam has claimed another victim.
While no one has doubted the power that Apple’s MacBooks can put out, one of the problems with the older models is the use of the butterfly keyboard switch mechanism that resulted in many a dead keyboard. Apple later changed it when they launched the 16-inch MacBook Pro in 2019 with a “new” scissor switch design.
For several years now, Apple has maintained the design of its MacBook laptops, where some of the more major design changes include new color options, a built-in OLED display above the keyboard, and a new 16-inch display. But for the most part, on the outside, the MacBooks have kept that look for many years now.
According to long-standing rumors, Apple is said to be working on creating an ARM-based MacBook laptop. Given that benchmarks of Apple’s more recent mobile chipsets have shown them to be incredibly powerful, it’s not surprising that Apple could be toying with the idea of harnessing that power and putting it into a laptop.
A rumor from last month suggested that Apple could be planning on hosting an event at the end of March where the company is set to announce a new iPhone along with iPad and MacBook refreshes. However, it seems that the event may no longer be happening, according to a tweet by Jon Prosser.
When Apple announced the 16-inch MacBook Pro, they dispensed with the 15-inch model. However, despite the larger screen, Apple managed to maintain the overall size thanks to the slimmed down bezels. Now it looks like Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro could be next on the chopping block.
There is the popular saying where if something is too good to be true, there is a good chance that it probably is. However, not all of us can afford the things we want in life, and who can resist a good deal, right? That’s what happened over in the UK where student Dre Twenti got cheated out of 1,200 pounds for what he thought was a MacBook Pro.
If you’re thinking about getting a new MacBook Pro laptop, you might want to hold off on the current models. This is because according to a recent tweet by @_rogame, it has been suggested that Apple’s upcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro refresh could be taking advantage of Intel’s 10th gen Ice Lake chipsets.
For years on end, Apple has relied exclusively on Intel for the processors used in their Mac computers. However, things could be changing because according to recent code discovered in the latest macOS Catalina beta, it seems that Apple could be toying around with the possibility of using AMD processors as well.
AirDrop is Apple’s proprietary way of transferring files from one device to another, and here’s how you can use it.
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.
