Macs with ARM processors coming early next year according to Kuo

One of the longest-running rumors about Apple's Macs and MacBooks is that they will eventually offer configurations with ARM processors rather than Intel's. If analyst Ming-chi Kuo is to be believed, that will finally happen in the last quarter of the year or early 2021 at the latest. Apple's foray into making its own Apple A CPUs for iPhones and iPads definitely lends some credibility to that outlook but, as Microsoft found out the hard way, it takes more than an ARM chip to make a successful ARM computer.

The Mac mini just became even better value

The Mac mini just became better value for money, with Apple quietly doubling the standard storage in its smallest desktop computer. While most of the big Mac attention has been paid to the potent Mac Pro over the past twelve months, Apple's powerhouse is out of reach of the average user.

An Apple tech repair puzzle and the potential for Wireless OS Recovery

Let me tell you a story about how the Apple gadget ecosystem can trap itself, under the right set of circumstances. While you read the set of problems that I'm about to recount, consider how quickly it could all have been resolved, had we been able to use the still-in-development "OS Recovery", or wireless device recovery system via iOS 13.4 Beta 4. This is, in my opinion, the most important feature Apple's developed in the past several years at least.

Mac malware reportedly grew faster than Windows malware in 2019

Mac malware reportedly grew faster than Windows malware in 2019

Windows has had the reputation of being the biggest target of viruses, trojans, and all sorts of malware, particularly because of how easy it has been to get through the OS' defenses. To some extent, that's still true, especially because of the number of potential victims throughout the world. The winds of change are blowing, though, even in the malware industry and it seems that, at least for 2019, Macs have outpaced their Windows counterparts when it comes to the growing number of malware and attacks that threatened Apple's desktops and laptops.

AMD Mac tipped in code (and Intel should be terrified)

Code from the latest version of the MacOS suggests that future desktop machines from Apple may use AMD processors for future Mac computers. This could include MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro, and iMac Pro, all of which currently use AMD graphics processors. This might be a big point of change for Apple with respect to Intel - if Apple drops Intel CPUs in favor of AMD CPU/GPU action, the boat shall be rocked.

Apple Q1 2020: The winners and losers

Apple's fiscal 2020 first quarter was hardly a disappointment, with record revenues, but not every category in the Apple Store was quite pulling its weight. While the Cupertino firm doesn't break down individual sales on a per-product basis - much to the frustration of fans and financial analysts alike - it does give an indication of how each division performed.
