New Macs expected in October, iPad Pro enhancements in 2017

Apple’s fans have been bemoaning the lack of new devices from the company’s Mac portfolio but, if insider sources are to be believed, that languishing will soon come to an end. Apple’s new Macs could start hitting stores as early as October, starting with new MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros, followed by new iMacs as well as a new standalone monitor from LG. And it doesn’t stop there either, as Apple is also said to be working on software improvements that will make the Apple Pencil a lot more useful and widespread on iPad Pro apps.

Force Touch Magic Mouse headed to Apple Stores (likely soon)

This week the appearance of the next generation in Apple Magic Mouse has appeared at our doorstep, metaphorically speaking. While we've not yet seen the device in physical form, word is that another appearance of the device's patent series signs the approach of the device. The approach which should, hopefully, be upon us very soon. This device will look and feel very similar to Apple's one physical, wireless mouse, but will have abilities similar to those of the Magic Touchpad, or the display of the iPhone 6s.

Apple Pay on the web official: aimed to take on Paypal

Apple Pay on the web official: aimed to take on Paypal

This morning Apple confirmed that they'd be releasing Apple Pay to the web. This system will work with stores across the web, allowing users to bypass systems like Paypal for handling their online cash. They began this proposition at WWDC 2016 with an absurd picture of a woman holding an iMac up to pay for a coffee at a coffee shop - which makes the most sense. Of course Apple Pay on the web will only work with Safari.

New 21.5-inch Retina iMac gets iFixit teardown, revealing non-upgradeable RAM

Another new Apple product has been released, and that means the repair specialists iFixit have conducted another one of their detailed teardowns. This week it's the new 21.5-inch Retina iMac that was just announced, complete with 4K display.

Apple opens test lab to show how products are perfected

Apple opens test lab to show how products are perfected

It would appear that Apple is heading in a direction that would suggest openness - that is, according to their most recent opening of labs. Working with the folks at Backchannel, Apple has shown off a set of images and details that suggest they (still) take product testing seriously. Above-and-beyond seriously, testing not only the look and feel of the products they create, but the sound. And not just the sound for loudness - they're making certain their mouse hits the right note when it clicks one way or the other.

Luckily, or hopefully, for them, they aren't hindered by an NDA unlike some other teardown experts.

New Apple accessories for desktop computers appear in FCC listings, likely headed for release later this Summer. Today we're seeing two wireless devices, on Apple mouse, the other an Apple wireless keyboard.

Inside these devices is no longer the Bluetooth 2.1 (BCM2042 inside) they originally came packed with, but Bluetooth 4.2 with Bluetooth LE Low Energy.
