We know that Apple has always been very environmentally-conscious, what with the company opting to use recycled materials for its packaging or even making its operations green by relying on alternative sources of energy, such as solar. Now it seems that it has gotten to the point where Apple is protecting enough forests to cover its packaging needs.
If you’re a student going back to school after the summer holidays, know that Apple is having a back-to-school promo which actually seems to offer up a pretty decent deal where you will be able to score yourself a free set of Beats headphones with a Mac purchase. This will cover the iMac, Mac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Pro, and the MacBook Air.
There are still a couple of months before school starts again. Many students will be looking to upgrade their tech before they head off to school again. No wonder we’re seeing computer companies come out with their own promotions to capture new customers. While Apple isn’t offering significant discounts on its products which tend to be quite sought after, the company is offering a pair of free Beats headphones.
One of the features that many lamented had been removed from the new MacBooks is the MagSafe connector, which ensured that laptop owners would not trip over their laptops and send them crashing to the flood. Now we’ve seen quite a few third-party options, but for the most part they tended to stick out like sore thumbs.
Apple has updated its Mac lineup today with faster processors and graphics, Thunderbolt 3, brighter Retina displays, faster storage options, and more. Apple has also updated the MacBook and MacBook Pro lineups today with faster processors. The company has launched a new product called the iMac Pro which it claims is the most powerful Mac it has ever made.
If you’re looking forward to new MacBook upgrades, it seems that you might not have to wait much longer. According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple is rumored to introduce new MacBook and MacBook Pro upgrades at WWDC 2017 which kicks off next month. This is interesting as for a while now, WWDC has stopped focusing on hardware launches.
If your Apple device is faulty or broken, sending it back to Apple is one of the ways you can go about getting it fixed. However for some customers, this can be a hassle as not everyone stays near an Apple Store. However that will change in the future thanks to an update to the Apple Support app.
Back before Apple started to make all of their laptops out of aluminum unibodies, Apple used polycarbonate like they did with their lower-end MacBook laptops. While those laptops haven’t been made in years, it seems that their time has officially come to an end as the laptop has been marked as “obsolete”.
Apple is one of the greener tech companies in operation today, and the company’s efforts at making their products and operations are green as possible is one that they are pretty proud of and have never failed to remind their customers of that. However as it stands there are still some components of their products that aren’t quite as environmentally-friendly.
In the next 58 years or so, quite a few of us might be dead, some of us might be really old, and some of us could be hitting the retirement age. However if there is one thing that could still be standing in 2075, it could be Apple. This is according to Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak who believes that Apple will still be around by that time.
There have been talks over the years that Apple could eventually put out an ARM-based Mac computer. In fact earlier this year a report from Apple insider Mark Gurman at Bloomberg hinted that ARM-based MacBook Pros could be launched this year, although it seems that this chipset won’t be replacing Intel’s chipset, but rather exist alongside it.
Our smartphones these days are so powerful that they make computers from a decade ago feel downright ancient and out of date. However could our smartphones be powerful enough to be on par with laptops? Perhaps, and if that day comes, it seems that Apple could be toying with the idea of a laptop powered by a smartphone.
According to the figures released by Gartner about a week ago, it was revealed that Apple got a small boost in its Q4 2016 market share thanks to its new MacBook Pros. This is despite the fact that the new laptops are incredibly expensive and are lacking certain features that customers have been asking for, such as 32GB RAM options.
It goes without saying that for any mobile device, the brightness of your display no doubt affects the battery life of your device, whether it be your phone, tablet, laptop, smartwatch, and so on. However this is something that Apple wants users to be more aware of as discovered in the fourth beta of macOS 10.12.3.
