Apple iMac gets mid-2020 Intel upgrade

Apple has updated the iMac, giving the all-in-one desktop a processor bump and other improvements, though not changing the familiar styling of the macOS computer.

iMac Pro, MacBook Pro third-party repairs still possible, confirms iFixit

Whether it's the need to protect their products' security and integrity, or just a slimy business practice, Apple is one of the most prevalent of modern tech companies that are clamping down on third-party repairs of their devices.

New MacBook Pros rendered inoperative after 3rd party repair

Apple, like many device manufacturers, are dead set against self-repairs or third-party repairs. These companies often cite safety, integrity, and trade secrets as reasons for discouraging those while consumer advocates accuse them of deplorable business strategies. That has never really stopped the third-party repair industry though companies increase their efforts to curb it. The latest from Apple is probably the most radical, making a 2018 MacBook Pro or even an iMac Pro practically useless if it has been repaired by an unauthorized service provider.

This iMac Pro server rack is both beautiful and powerful

MacStadium made headlines back in 2013 with its unusual rack-mounted Mac Pro arrays, demonstrating that just because Apple's form-factor is atypical, that doesn't mean it couldn't be chained together for some seriously heavy workloads.

iMac Pro teardown video has good and bad upgrade news

Apple seems to have conceded that professional users buying a new iMac Pro might be more demanding about upgrades than their consumer counterparts.
