On Tuesday, Apple unveiled a much-requested refresh of the Mac Mini, which sports powerful new hardware and a redesigned chassis constructed from fully-recycled aluminum.
In this piece, we outline the tech specs concerning Apple‘s all-new 2018 Mac Mini.
Even though Apple added a toggle to iOS which disables the controversial CPU throttling and offered consumers discounted battery replacements, the Italian watchdog has fined the Cupertino technology giant ten million euros, which works out to about $11.4 million bucks, over using software updates to slow down iPhones and push people into buying new models.
Now that a Chinese regulatory filing has all but confirmed a new iPad-focused Apple media event this month, fresh new details pertaining to the upcoming refresh continue trickling in on an almost daily basis. According to Brazilian iOS developer Guilherme Rambo, the 2018 iPad Pro refresh will include a new Apple-designed A12X Bionic system-on-a-chip.
If you own an Apple computer, especially a modern one, then you’ve probably come to notice how particularly thin these machines have become. Despite that, most Macs still sport internal cooling fans to keep the CPU and GPU temperatures in check.
By default, Apple’s internal cooling fans run as silently as possible for a quiet user experience, but this isn’t without its caveats. Thinner machines like the MacBook Pro are more susceptible to heat soak because the cooling capabilities of such a compact chassis are limited; this is something you’ve undoubtedly felt while the machine sits on your lap during intensive tasks.
A new week hasn't ended the so-called "thermal throttling" controversy that's been swirling around the newly released 15-inch 2018 MacBook Pro. ExtremeTech is now reporting that Intel had long ago said it was okay for manufacturers such as Apple to deviate from stated specifications. In doing so, it makes you wonder whether you can even count on reported clock speeds for some of the most expensive laptops on the market.
Initial Geekbench scores on the recently announced 2018 MacBook Pro lineup show significant improvements over last year's models. This shouldn't come as that much of a surprise since this year's model features the first core increases for the MacBook Pro since 2011.
French blog Consomac.fr (Google Translate) this morning managed to dig up some claimed single and multi-core synthetic benchmarks from Geekbench's database showing alleged CPU and GPU speed gains plus other improvements for the upcoming Apple A12 system-on-a-chip destined to power 2018's upcoming iPhone X and iPad models.
Contract manufacturer Pegatron has been allegedly tipped to land orders from Apple to produce its rumored hybrid ARM-based MacBook model, according to industry sources mentioned today in a report by Taiwanese trade publication DigiTimes.
iPhone users can take advantage of the useful features in iOS 11.3 and later designed to help them assess their battery's health, see if it needs replacing and turn off the controversial CPU throttling feature that disables unexpected shutdowns on iPhones with worn-out batteries.
Apple yesterday testified before Canada's House of Commons committee on industry, science and technology, a parliamentary body which has been tasked with looking into how the Cupertino firm (mis)handled the scandalous iPhone throttling situation.
Apple is reportedly considering offering rebates to customers who purchased replacement lithium-ion batteries for their iPhone before the discounted pricing came into effect.
Apple's controversial practice of slowing down iPhones with worn-out batteries to prevent unexpected shutdowns apparently didn't sit well with the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
