Europe’s war on chargers could give Apple an iPhone problem – or an opportunity

Apple acquires Xnor.ai leaving Wyze cams blind to people

Apple buys smaller tech companies from time to time, as its own PR would reply to inquiries. It's no that often, however, that you hear of such an acquisition causing a different company direct problems.

macOS Pro Mode could make MacBook Pros more gaming-worthy

macOS Pro Mode could make MacBook Pros more gaming-worthy

For generations, MacBooks have been seen as a status symbol, used by both casual computer users and professionals alike. One class of users that have not exactly taken to Apple's notebooks are gamers. For one, the number of high-profile titles for Mac OS X, now macOS, has traditionally been small. For another, MacBooks, even MacBook Pros, have not exactly been noteworthy for their performance especially when it comes to games. That has started to change with the launch of the 16-inch MacBook Pro last year and it seems that Apple will be pulling some software tricks to capitalize on the new notebook's muscles.

Apple has finally reverted to using scissor switches in the 16-inch MacBook Pro and now it seems that a new model will soon be out with that same Magic Keyboard.
