Apple has been moving out of the computer business for awhile. Where once the WWDC keynote would have revolved around OS X (just renamed macOS), now the event is the iOS show.
The WWDC keynote is finally over, and if we learned one thing, it’s that Apple has fundamentally changed. Most of the news from the developer’s conference wasn’t too earth-shattering: there were no new apps being ported to Android, no allusions to any Apple hardware whatsoever, and Tim Cook even seemed a little off…
Dependable rumors suggest that the MacBook Pro is about to get major revamp. According to a new report from Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities, Apple will release a dramatic redesign of the MacBook Pro in the fourth quarter. “Dramatic” might be too small a word, actually.
Apple’s Macbooks are known to be difficult (if not impossible) to repair, but there’s always been the option if you’re stubborn enough. But in a teardown of the latest extra-pink Macbook, iFixit discovered something more worrying: screws that change if you tamper with them.
It started simply, with a new color option for the Apple Watch. It was called “Rose Gold,” and it fit with Apple’s appeal to make its new wearable more fashion-friendly. Then it came for our iPhones, iPads and Beats headphones. Now, with Apple’s latest hardware update, the MacBook’s gone pink.
Have you tried to write an email, or worse, an essay on an iPad touchscreen? Well, soon that may be exactly how you type on a Macbook laptop.
Hidden amongst the excitement of releasing a two-year-old phone today, Apple also revealed another, far less exciting problem: a USB-C to Lightning cable, finally fixing a unique and stupid problem for the one percent.
When I bought my Macbook Pro a year ago, I was feeling so internally guilty about spending $1500 on a laptop that I only paid for 128GB of storage, a decision I’ve regretted about three times per day ever since. This solution isn’t cheap, but at least it will stop me whining.
By now there are countless flash cards designed to sit perfectly inside the MacBook Air’s SD card slot and boost the laptop’s storage as an extra onboard drive. But the TarDisk Pear is the first to actually merge with a MacBook’s SSD, creating a single hybrid drive for easier file management.
The new MacBook is a marvel of engineering. It’s beautiful, and far more functional than a computer this size has any right to be. But it’s not for me, and I doubt it’s for you, either. It’s just too damn thin.
The new MacBook is out this week, and its most famous attribute — other than its heroin-addicted model skinniness — is its single USB-C port for power and everything else. Yep, you can’t power your machine and use an external monitor or USB drive at the same time. So let’s build a crazy multi-port dream machine…
Apple’s newest MacBook is undeniably slick. But with its single port and a processor that’s far from super-charged, it’s also got a few potential pain points. The first reviews are just coming in, and it seems like a shoo-in for Laptop of the Future. Just maybe not quite yet.
If you've always wanted to customize the lid of your MacBook but hate the idea of putting stickers on it, a new Kickstarter is attempting to raise funds to produce a laptop case that can be decorated, adorned, or upgraded with most building toys, including Lego.
Thanks to Apple's new MacBook and Google's new Chromebook Pixel, USB-C has arrived. A single flavor of cable for all your charging and connectivity needs? Hell yes. But that convenience doesn't come without a cost; our computers will be more vulnerable than ever to malware attacks, from hackers and surveillance…
Although this past Monday's Apple event was mostly dedicated to the Apple Watch, the most exciting (and perplexing) new piece of hardware was the updated MacBook. But one of its new features, the Taptic Engine-enabled "Force Touch" trackpad, also found its way into a refresh of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which iFixit…
Everybody's MacBook breaks. At some point or another, the hard drive will shudder to a stop; the display hinge won't hold up anymore; the logic board will cease to function. It's only a matter of time. Fortunately, you can fix most of it yourself. Here's how.
