2019 MacBook Pro teardown shows just how Apple changed its keys

Apple's changes to the 2019 MacBook Pro to address keyboard reliability have been given the teardown treatment, to figure out just how the design has been altered.

Apple isn't just adding new, faster MacBook Pro models to its range today: it's also updating its Keyboard Service Program, too.

16-inch MacBook Pro with all new design might not come this year

16-inch MacBook Pro with all new design might not come this year

The biggest MacBook Pro prediction this year has just been debunked by the very person who made the prediction. While details are still very thin at the moment, that's definitely what it feels like upon learning that Ming-chi Kuo himself has revised his forecast, saying that the 16-inch MacBook Pro, the one with an all-new design, won't be landing in stores this year. The good news is that it might still be coming after two years.

2018 MacBook Pros may have secretly addressed flexgate issues

2018 MacBook Pros may have secretly addressed flexgate issues

If you make a habit of following MacBook news, there's a good chance you've already heard of "flexgate." This latest design controversy centers around the failing displays of 2016-and-later MacBook Pros and blames the problem on short flex cables that need to wrap around the hinge to connect the display to the display controller board. Since the cable is too short, it's pulled tight around the controller board when the MacBook is opened, eventually wearing down and causing the display to fail.

MacBook Pro 16: Our wishlist (and what’s most likely)

Apple was tipped to reveal a 16-inch MacBook Pro in the year 2019, and this afternoon we're going to take a look at what that'll mean. This would be the biggest MacBook Pro (or indeed MacBook of any sort) since the 2012 MacBook Pro on which I'm typing right this minute. No MacBook Pro's been up to the task of delivering such a monstrously adequate display - until now, it would seem. Almost, anyway.

16-inch MacBook Pro with new design is the biggest 2019 prediction

Save for the replacement of all ports with Thunderbolt 3 ports, some MacBook Pro fans might bemoan that Apple's professional laptops haven't received a major evolution, let a lone a positive one. The new ports themselves might have split camps but the new Touch Bar and the new keyboards on the 2016 models have been nothing short of controversial. This year might bring a breath of fresh air if Ming Chi-Kuo is correct. This year will see not only a redesign of the MacBook Pro but also the biggest MacBook Pro size since 2012.

MacBook Pro flexgate shows Apple might be losing its touch

MacBook Pro flexgate shows Apple might be losing its touch

There’s a reason why Apple’s products are highly prized despite being highly priced. The company is famous for its attention to detail and near-perfect balance of form and function. Lately, however, questions have been raised about whether the company still has what it takes to keep up that image. Because from ugly antenna lines to bending phones and tablets to fragile and expensive laptop screens, Apple seems to be making too many compromises for the sake of looking good.

Apple T2 chip confirmed to have kill switch for DIY repairs

The folks over at iFixit recently celebrated a small victory for third-party repair industry when exceptions to the DMCA allowed self-repairs for certain classes of devices. That victory, however, might have been short-lived at least as far as Apple’s latest Mac products are concerned. Because while some part of the new Macs and MacBooks can be replaced with no problem or issue, some parts, like the logic board and Touch ID fingerprint sensor, would now require official re-authentication using a diagnostic tool that only Apple provides to its authorized service providers.
