With laptop makers churning out laptop/tablet hybrids, there have been some Apple fans who have called upon the company to do the same. Apple has resisted the idea in the past, but as we have seen with devices like the Apple Pencil, it is not unprecedented for Apple to have a change of heart.
Apple is a company who is known for their attention to detail and also quality in their products, but in the past couple of years, the company has come under fire for the keyboards used in their MacBook lineup. This is due to the butterfly switch design that seems to fail a lot more easily than the previous design.
Many were undoubtedly disappointed when Apple opted to replace the MagSafe charging adapter in favor of USB-C. This is because the MagSafe adapter used magnets to connect the cable to laptops like the MacBook Pro, making it easy to detach when tripped on. At the same time, it is understandable that Apple would want to make the move to USB-C.
Reports about issues with Apple’s third-generation butterfly keyboard on newer MacBook models have been more than just few and far between. The company hasn’t really acknowledged that there is a problem to be fixed until today, following a scathing column in the Wall Street Journal. Apple has now apologized for the issues.
There have been rumors that Apple could be making the eventual shift from Intel chipsets on their Mac computers to ARM powered chipsets created by Apple themselves. Given Apple’s reliance on their own hardware, this rumor hardly comes as a surprise, and after years of rumors, it seems that those rumors could come to fruition in 2020.
Sometimes we come across software bugs that can cause the software to crash, cause the operating system to reboot, but it isn’t very often that we run into software bugs that can cause permanent and physical damage to a computer’s hardware components. Unfortunately for some MacBook Pro users, that’s what happened to them.
Due to the fact that our computers can sometimes run a bit hot under intense operations, this is why there are various spots that allow for air to come in and be sucked out to help cool it down. This also means that dust can get in, but that’s why when it comes to desktop computers, a lot of them actually come with dust filters that can be easily removed […]
We doubt that anyone has ever equated Apple with being cheap or affordable, but if you’re hoping to save some money, you might be interested to learn that Apple has announced on their website that they will be hosting a four-day sale starting on Black Friday and it will last through Cyber Monday.
Apple’s products have never been referred to as cheap. However if for whatever reason you must own an Apple product, then chances are you might already be familiar with the fact that Apple sells refurbished products on its website. In fact the company has recently launched a redesigned online refurbished store.
The problem with Apple’s MacBook laptops is the ports, in which Apple has pretty much done away with USB-A ports in favor of USB-C, including the recently launched MacBook Air which was one of the last few MacBooks that still had USB-A ports. This means that you’ll need to start living the dongle life if you’re trying to charge devices using a USB-A cable.
Apple has confirmed that come 30th October, they will be hosting an event. The company has not confirmed what the event will be about, but it has been largely speculated that the event would most likely see Apple announce new iPads, but now there is more evidence that could indicate that we might see new Mac computers as well.
While Apple might have refreshed some of its products already, such as the MacBook Pro and the iPhone, there are still several products that Apple has yet to update. This includes the iPad Pro, the MacBook Air, the 12-inch MacBook, and the iMac. Many expected these devices to be announced this month, and it looks like Apple has finally confirmed it.
For years there have been talks that Apple could eventually ditch Intel and start making ARM-powered Mac computers. When exactly that will happen remains to be seen, but notable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo seems to think that it might not be too far off into the future, and that it could happen as early as 2020 or 2021.
Given the size of the largest iPad Pro, it’s not surprising that more people are starting to think of these tablets as potential laptop replacements (depending on your needs). Their size also means that they are great to double up as a secondary display, especially if you work outside with a Mac laptop.
