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.
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.
