macOS Big Sur reportedly making older MacBook Pros unusable

While Big Sur's biggest claim to fame is its support for Apple's new ARM-based computers, a major macOS update is still a major macOS update. Finally released to the public just last week, it's no surprise to learn that many Mac owners are jumping on board early. It's also not surprising to hear those early adopters running into some issues. Most of those, however, can usually be fixed by resetting various components but one case, in particular, seems to be turning old MacBook Pros into unusable bricks according to a handful of owners.

Apple Silicon M1 benchmarks give credence to performance claims

Apple's announcement of the first generation of Macs running on its own Silicon processors was unsurprisingly filled with bold claims. Given the novelty of the M1 chip and its ARM-based design, there might be some apprehension if the new MacBooks will be able to hold their own against Intel's most powerful processors. Geekbench scores for these new computers have started popping up that does seem to confirm Apple's claims, trumping Intel-based MacBooks except in one case.

Apple Event today: Our most far-fetched expectations

This morning we're looking at what to expect from Apple's One More Thing event later today. The Apple Silicon Macs are almost certainly set to be the main attraction today, complete with ever-so-slight redesigns of hardware and big changes to the capabilities of the software and processing therein. But what else might Apple show? What other products might've been hidden so exceedingly well by Apple that we've barely seen them reported as leaks in the recent past?

If the Apple Silicon MacBook looks like this, I need it

The MacBook Pro you see in this article is like a dream come true. The work is a set of concept illustrations made into 3D rendered goodness by the folks at Zone of Tech. In this device is a true meeting of worlds, with industrial design elements from the recent past of both the MacBook and the iPad Pro, including but not limited to a giant trackpad, a super bright and colorful display, and bezels that are equal on all sides and corners.

16-inch MacBook Pro 2020 refresh might not have Apple Silicon

16-inch MacBook Pro 2020 refresh might not have Apple Silicon

It is pretty much old news by now that Apple is going all out on ARM, at least the flavor of the computing architecture that it will be using on its Apple Silicon processors. The shift won't be immediate, though, and Apple is giving it about two years' time. But while it will soon be moving most of its computers over to that side, it seems at least one specific MacBook Pro model will keep its foot solidly on Intel ground.

Your old 2012 MacBook Pro will soon be officially “obsolete”

Apple will soon move another MacBook to the official "obsolete" list, a list where old Apple products go out to pasture. Once a device has been added to the obsolete list, Apple no longer offers support at their official Apple Store repair desk. Older devices that'll soon be moved to the list of obsolete hardware can still be fixed now - until that day comes.

Memory upgrades on the base 13-inch MacBook Pro just got twice as expensive

Apple has unexpectedly increased the price of a RAM upgrade on the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, quietly doubling how much it takes to equip the notebook with 16GB of memory.

Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch Review: After 5 months, I’m convinced

Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch Review: After 5 months, I’m convinced

The 16-inch MacBook Pro has a lot to prove, not least with its Magic Keyboard, but arguably just as much about whether it still fits the definition of what "professionals" are looking for. The new keyboard is about as close to a mea-culpa as Apple gets, but this flagship notebook needed to deliver more than just different keys. It's the sort of improvement that only time can tell whether it's worked or not - so that's just what I gave it.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro exposes the hole in Apple’s display range

The 13-inch MacBook Pro exposes the hole in Apple’s display range

Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro is the Magic Keyboard upgrade that many would-be buyers have been waiting for, but with those controversial keys out of the way, the wish-list moves on to another gap in the range. Unlike with the 16-inch MacBook Pro launched late last year, 2020's entry-level MacBook Pro didn't step up a screen size. That means many people will be wanting to plug in an external display.
