Microsoft yesterday refreshed its Surface family of hybrid notebooks, tablets and all-in-ones while announcing the company’s first AirPods rival. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Surface products and accessories.
Microsoft is working on a foldable, ‘pocketable,’ dual-screen Surface device, reports The Verge. The company has long been rumored to be working on such a tablet, codenamed Andromeda, but internal documents recently obtained by the outlet offer new details on the secret project.
Microsoft is reportedly planning to release a low-cost Surface line to better compete with Apple’s $329 iPad that was recently updated with iPhone 7’s A10 Fusion chip, Apple Pencil support and other improvements.
Microsoft is simplifying the process of moving your Mac stuff over to the Surface laptop/tablet hybrid devices. As noted on Twitter three days ago, the Windows maker recently released a brand new app, Mac to Surface Assistant, provided as a free download from the Microsoft website. The migration tool requires an external USB drive and lets Apple users move all their photos, videos, music, mails, contacts, calendars and other files from a Mac to a Surface with a few clicks.
