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.
Aluminum is a popular metal that is used in many tech products today. Apple is a company that uses the material extensively across its product lineup, like in the iPhones, iPad, Apple Watch, MacBooks, iMac, and so on. However, the manufacturing process of aluminum isn’t necessarily the most environmentally-friendly, but that has changed.
While Apple’s MacBook Pros are undeniably powerful (expensive, but powerful), if there is one weak point in the laptop it would be with the keyboard. There have been multiple complaints about the keyboard, but if the rumors are to be believed, Apple could finally be addressing them in 2020.
The problem plaguing Apple’s current laptops isn’t so much to do with performance of the system, but rather something pretty simple and basic: its keyboard. For those who have been following the news long enough, there’s a good chance that you’ve probably heard of all the nightmares that the keyboard on MacBook laptops are giving its users.
One of the features of macOS Catalina is called Sidecar. For those who are unfamiliar, this basically allows macOS users to take an iPad and turn that iPad into a secondary display for their MacBook laptops. It sounds pretty useful and a much welcome feature, especially for users who have long had to rely on third-party alternatives.
Apple has been starting to transition to OLED screens. It first started with the Apple Watch and it later expanded to the iPhone, and we expect that in the future, it will find its way to the iPad and MacBooks as well. However, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, that might not be 100% accurate.
Laptop keyboards have never really been known to be pleasant to type on. They are functional where there are some keyboards that do feel better than most, and Apple’s MacBook keyboards were one of them. We say “were” because ever since the company transitioned to their Butterfly switch design, it has been downhill from there.
If you’re thinking about buying a new iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch, or MacBook, you might want to hold off for the next month or so. This is because according to a recent sighting at the Eurasian Economic Commission, it seems that Apple has filed for a bunch of new products, suggesting that product refreshes could be coming soon.
The trade war between the US and China is still ongoing. We imagine that it will be a while before things smoothen out, but unfortunately, in the meantime, it looks like Apple might have gotten caught in the crossfires because US President Donald Trump just announced a 10% import tax.
Apple’s MacBook keyboards are terrible. You can take a quick look on the forums on the internet where the general consensus is that not only are they not particularly nice to type on, but their durability has some serious issues where in the past, we’ve heard how debris getting under the keys is enough to render them useless.
Back in the early days of Apple, the company employed the use of a rainbow Apple logo which quickly became iconic in its design. These days, the company has opted for a more simple and somewhat plain logo, but it seems that the rainbow Apple logo could soon be making a comeback.
A few years ago, Apple introduced a new keyboard switch design in its MacBook laptops. It was meant to be a revolution in keyboard design as it was thinner than ever, but yet provided tactile feedback. Unfortunately, it was anything but, with users complaining about it, sending their laptops back in for keyboard repairs, and also filing lawsuits.
Given how instrumental Jony Ive was in Apple’s success, thanks to his designs, it was no doubt a huge blow for the company when the famed designer announced that after 30 years, he would be finally leaving Apple and starting his own design company. We’re sure that there are probably some who are concerned about the future of the company, but Apple’s CEO Tim Cook doesn’t seem to be too […]
