Apple has finally rolled out the its refresh of its MacBook Pro with Retina Display line. The slightly revamped specs match what was leaked from China yesterday, with the absence of a new super-powered model. This time, however, we also get to see what has changed with the 13-inch models as well.
Apple's desktop Mac line may finally be getting the Retina update OS X users have been hoping for, with chatter of a 4K model headed to stores around October. Although Retina display technology is already offered on the MacBook Pro and across Apple's iPhone and iPad line, so far the Mac Pro and iMac have stuck with their lower pixel-density panels, despite both computers being easily capable of driving significantly higher resolutions.
Apple's new MacBook Air with Retina display is headed to production with an expected release in October, reports out of Taiwan suggest, though the rumored 12-inch refresh may well have been pushed back. Chatter of a higher-resolution MacBook Air has circulated for some time, bringing the ultraportable's screen in-line with the sort of pixel-dense panels Apple uses in the MacBook Pro, but a revamp earlier this year failed to deliver it.
A recent teardown for the “new” iPod Touch shows that not much has changed with the complex manufacturing process. It’s still glued, still screwed, and still tough to open up. We took a second and compared some other Apple products, and referenced that against those iPhone 6 leaks we see popping up. Will the iPhone 6 be as tough to repair as other Apple devices like it?
While we’ve seen the split-screen functionality of iOS 8 in code before, today’s video comes as a bit of a surprise. After all, Apple didn’t show off any split-screen abilities in iOS 8 during WWDC 2014, and we’ve heard no official word on the matter either way. Today brings the next level of multitasking functionality to the world of Apple’s mobile operating system.
It seems that Apple is ready to turbo charge the display capabilities of its current hardware lineup with the upcoming OS X 10.9.3 update. Spotted by beta testers is a new setting that enables native resolution on 4K display as well as 4K output at 60 Hz on 2013 Retina MacBook Pros.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has piqued fan interest and rumors once again with a characteristically vague but enticing mention of "big plans" for 2014. The mention came by way of an employee newsletter he sent to the entire Apple workforce. It was nestled near the end of a long list of accomplishments both from a product standpoint and from a corporate citizenship perspective.
It's not been a week since the Retina iPad mini hit shelves in the USA and rumors of the next-generation iPad Pro have surfaced. This comes soon after the in-store availability of the device known as the iPad Air, a name which suggests too that a "Pro" model may be in the works. This larger device would have a display to match its abilities as well: 12.9-inches by rumor's reckoning.
It's the iPad mini we've been waiting for: Apple's smaller tablet that, thanks to a Retina display and brand new A7 processor, now punches above its size and makes a legitimate alternative not only for compact-screen Android and Windows rivals, but Apple's own iPad Air too. That Apple has achieved all that with minimal compromises on weight and battery life seems almost too good to be true: could the iPad mini with Retina display be the best tablet in the range? Read on for our full review.
You'll find a rather familiar set of bits inside the iPad mini with Retina display this week from the likes of iFixit. The folks notoriously attached to the term "teardown" have found this machine to work with a repairability rating of 2 out of 10 - not so fantastic - but the whole organization of this device's innards are fantastically simple nonetheless. Inside you'll find a variety of parts from brands like Toshiba, NXP, and Elpida too.
