Safari is the default browser bundled with iOS. While it works great and can sync across devices like the iPhone and iPad and Mac computers, it does not necessarily mean that it is good. In fact, there are several features from other browsers such as Chrome that we would love to see in Safari.
The rumors are claiming that Apple is expected to make the transition from Intel x86 processors to ARM-based ones, similar to the ones used on their iPhones and iPads. The move makes all kinds of sense given Apple’s penchant for preferring to use their own tech, plus there is also the added benefit of ARM.
At Apple’s upcoming WWDC 2020 event, the company could unveil their plans to eventually introduce ARM-based chipsets to their Mac computers. However, there is a legitimate concern as to how they might hold up against Intel’s processors which have been powering Mac computers for the past decade or so.
If the rumors are to be believed, Apple was supposed to announce a redesigned iMac at WWDC 2020. However, if you were hoping to see new hardware announced at Apple’s event, you might be disappointed because according to several prominent leaksters, that may not be happening.
According to the rumors, Apple is looking to transition from using Intel’s x86 processors to ARM-based processors. This would no doubt be a massive change for Mac users in the future, and as such, Apple is expected to make the transition slowly. We had initially heard that this could come in the form of the revived 12-inch MacBook.
Looking to pick up a new iMac? If you are, then you might want to hold off for a couple of weeks. This is because according to recent rumors, Apple is expected to unveil a refreshed iMac at WWDC 2020, where it has also been rumored that it could be undergoing a redesign with inspiration drawn from the iPad Pro.
According to a recent rumor, it was suggested that Apple could be unveiling a long-overdue iMac refresh at WWDC 2020. What makes this refresh particularly exciting is that it could be when Apple finally introduces a brand new design to the iMac where apparently, it could be borrowing the design language of the iPad Pro.
Apple’s iMac was last updated more than a year ago, which means that it is most definitely due for an update. In fact, we have heard the rumors that suggested that Apple could actually be planning to introduce a new design for the iMac this year, and now it looks like we could be seeing that design much sooner than expected.
For a while it has been rumored that Apple could make the switch from using Intel chipsets in its computers to an ARM-based one. After all, Apple’s ARM chipsets appear to be performing rather well on benchmarks, with some benchmarks even showing that it can outperform that of x86 chips.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many companies have chosen to postpone or outright cancel their events. For example, Google I/O 2020 has been cancelled, but as far as Apple is concerned, back in March, the company announced that they would instead be opting for an online-only event.
Recently we have been hearing rumors that Apple could apparently be planning a new variant of the AirPods Pro called the AirPods Pro Lite. Now according to a tweet by Jon Prosser, he claims that the earbuds will actually be known as the AirPods X and that it will apparently be launching at WWDC 2020.
So it was previously reported that due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, Apple could be considering cancelling its annual WWDC event. It turns out that the company has done that, sort of, where instead of hosting a physical event like they always do, they will instead be launching a new online format.
In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, more events around the world are being cancelled. The latest casualty came in the form of Google I/O 2020 where the company announced that they will no longer be hosting a physical event for it. This has led to some to wonder if Apple’s WWDC 2020 event could also be affected.
Apple was the first to the market to launch a digital assistant for our smartphones. However, the feature did not exactly work as advertised at launch, and the fact that it was closed off to developers meant that Siri was extremely limited in its use. This led to competitors such as Amazon and Google to pull ahead of Apple in the digital assistant market.
If there is something that Apple gets right, it would be with their software updates. This is because the company tends to support its devices for as long as possible, versus Android in which your mileage may vary from brand to brand, but typically you get about two years worth of updates.
One of the new features introduced in iOS 13 is the ability for apps to introduce a “Sign in with Apple” option. This is basically Apple’s answer to the sign-in services offered by other companies, such as Facebook and Google, with Apple emphasizing that their option will offer up more privacy as it does not collect data on the user who chooses to use that option.
A couple of years ago, Apple came under fire when it was discovered that they had been throttling their iPhones. The official reason was that Apple slowed down iPhones with aging batteries to prevent it from crashing, but many weren’t too thrilled that they weren’t at least given the option.
Apple recently took the wraps off their new Mac Pro and as we said, it does not come cheap where it has a base price of $5,999. This means that should a user customize it with higher-end hardware, things could get pricey, but how pricey? Apple has yet to put the computer up for sale which means that we’re not sure how much the other configurations could cost, but The […]
As powerful as the iPad Pros are, many have pointed out that it still isn’t quite there yet in terms of it being a potential laptop replacement. This is because of the limitations of iOS, where you can’t quite pull off certain functions like you would on an OS like macOS or Windows, but that has changed when Apple launched iPadOS.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Apple had quietly increased the download limit from 150MB to 200MB for app downloads made over a cellular internet connection. We lamented at that time that a 50MB increase wasn’t exactly groundbreaking, but it turns out that it was merely an appetizer for what was to come.
