Apple expected to ditch the dodgy keyboard in future MacBook models

As brilliantly built and sturdy as Apple products are, we know that their keyboards have turned out to be sub-par. That'll change soon.

No more 12in MacBook: Apple has other plans for its notebook lineup

Apple has decided to boot its 12in MacBook this week after introducing a new lower-cost MacBook Air and an updated 13in MacBook Pro. The previous-gen MacBook Air (that doesn’t feature Apple's Retina display) also won’t be available anymore. 

iStore’s ‘Big Annual Sale’ starts this Thursday

The annual Apple iStore sale is almost upon us, and will be available at all iStores nationally from 23 May to 9 June.

Apple’s got a new MacBook Air heading our way soon

100 Million. That’s how many people are using Mac devices worldwide and that’s just one figure of many from Apple’s presentation in Brooklyn, New York, today. But we’re far more interested in the new MacBook Air models heading to market soon. Apple took the wraps off some freshened-up skinny notebooks at their late-2018 presentation, with Tim Cook introducing an all-new dev...[Read More]

Apple MacBook (2017) — Surprisingly more than ‘more of the same’

There’s a sense of deja vu as you approach Apple’s 2017 MacBook. It still sports a super-skinny wedge design that suggests Apple won’t be satisfied until its laptops are thin enough to be used as weapons by ninja. It’s still ridiculously light: 920g – or roughly the same as if some idiot glued two of your iPads together. And it still comes in space grey, gold, rose gold, or silver, and costs more ...[Read More]

Apple to announce new Macs at 27 October event

If you’ve had your eye on an Apple MacBook, you may want to hang on for a month or so. A new report from ReCode claims that Apple is on track for an October MacBook announcement. That’s something that has been expected for some time but a lack of a solid date this late in the month has put previous reports in doubt. But ReCode‘s sources claim that Apple is scheduling a 27 October...[Read More]

Light Start – Instant Leica, But Whole delay, limited Note returns, and MacBook jack

The Leica Sofort is an instant camera using Fuji’s Instax film. Um… awesome? Instant cameras are enjoying a resurgence. Fujifilm’s Instax camera is nearly always out of stock as users stock up on some retro tech. Now German manufacturer Leica are getting in on the action with the Sofort, an instant camera that uses the same Fuji Instax film as every other retro shooter available ...[Read More]

Will your Mac handle macOS Sierra?

The end of OS X draws nigh, with a replacement waiting in the wings: macOS will be taking over Apple’s notebooks and desktops later this year. Apple’s name change was revealed, with all of 10.12 Sierra’s new features, at WWDC. There’s a whole lot to get excited about, but first you need to make certain that you’re going to get in on macOS. That’s right – s...[Read More]

Apple’s new 5K display could have its own GPU to support MacBooks

Apple has offered an iMac with a staggering 5K-resolution display since 2014 and also has 4K iMacs available, yet its standalone Thunderbolt Display still sits at 1440p – plenty sharp, but certainly lesser by comparison. However, a refresh seems imminent: retailers are starting to show limited stock of the five-year-old monitor, and 9to5Mac‘s sources claim that a much-improved standalo...[Read More]

12in MacBook gets a speed boost and (if you really want) a rose gold finish

Longer battery life, better performance and faster storage, for no extra cash? Yes please. Apple’s just overhauled its ultra-thin 12in MacBook, swapping the old CPUs for some of Intel’s latest chips to give them a bit of a speed boost. As well as being faster, this new silicon uses less power, so you should be able to squeeze out an additional hour from a full charge. Thats 11 hours if you stick t...[Read More]

New MacBook rumours hinge on injected-metal design overhaul

Needles at the ready – Apple’s next MacBook is apparently going to be so thin the hinges have to be injected into place. According to DigiTimes, Apple is having to rely on metal injection moulding to make its latest laptops as slim as possible, and reclaim the “thinnest in the world” title, after HP introduced the Spectre last week. It’s the tech rumour equivalent of ...[Read More]

Light Start – Yamaha Sport Ride, GoPro drone, Nintendo mobile, a MacBook hub, and Facebook scams

Yamaha’s Sport Ride concept car is something we’d ride, endlessly Yamaha’s teaser last week for their Tokyo Motor Show reveal of a sports car based on the company’s motorcycles (weird, we know) was worth the wait. Visually, anyway, as the company has yet to say anything about the engine in the newly unveiled Sport Ride car concept. What we do know is that it’s super l...[Read More]
