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.
It has been rumored for a while that Apple could be looking to launch ARM-based Mac computers in the future. Apple typically does not enjoy relying on other companies for parts, and generally prefers doing things themselves where they can. By going the ARM route, they will be able to stop relying on Intel for processors.
Apple has various chargers for different products. There are chargers for iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks. However, in the future, it has been speculated that Apple could potentially release a new type of charger that will be more versatile, thus allowing users to charge different kinds of products using the same charger.
While Microsoft has yet to hop on board the foldable phone bandwagon, the company does seem to believe that there could be some merit to the design. As a result, back in 2019, the company unveiled two foldable devices in the form of the Microsoft Surface Duo, an Android powered smartphone with dual displays, and a larger foldable tablet in the Surface Neo.
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 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.
