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 wants macOS apps outside the App Store to be notarized ASAP

Apple wants macOS apps outside the App Store to be notarized ASAP

Unlike iOS and more like Windows, macOS software can be acquired from sources other than Apple's blessed Mac App Store. While this gives users and developers some flexibility, it also gives Apple a headache when it comes to controlling who and what installs software on Macs. Last June, Apple announced a way to put a leash on such apps with its Notarization program that will take full effect in February, giving apps that pass its process the thumbs up to run by default on macOS Catalina.

Mac Pro 2019 MPX Module (GPU) unexpectedly easy to upgrade

Today Apple released a set of videos about their also-newly-released Mac Pro. This is the Mac Pro for late-2019, revealed back in June of 2019. The focus of the most interesting of these videos is the "plug-and-play Mac Pro Expansion Module", aka the "MPX Module", a piece of hardware that Apple says "adds extra graphical power to your Mac Pro." This is the way you switch out your GPU and replace it with a new GPU - it's made to appear simple.

MacBook Pro 16-inch, 2019, released to stores and shipping

The newest 16-inch MacBook Pro (16-inch model) was made available at Apple Stores today, with a reserve system. This means you could, potentially, walk into an Apple Store without any interaction with the Apple website - but we wouldn't recommend it. If you're going to really jump in on this device and absolutely need to purchase the machine today, you're going to want to go to the Apple Store online, first.

Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10 on Android 10 beta need this DeX for PC app

Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10 on Android 10 beta need this DeX for PC app

One of the often-cited consequences of modifying an Android experience too much is that updates take longer to test. That's true not just for the Android experience on the phone itself but even for features that connect with external devices. That's what testers of the Android 10 Beta for Samsung's latest Galaxy flagships have discovered to their dismay. Worry not because Samsung has now made available a special version of the Samsung DeX app for PCs and Macs to address exactly that.

macOS Catalina is less buggy than iOS 13 but has a different problem

macOS Catalina is less buggy than iOS 13 but has a different problem

This year might end up being unkind to Apple's software if the past few days continue their trend. iOS 13, one of Apple's most monumental releases for its mobile platform, has had three emergency releases in just a week to quickly patch up critical security bugs. macOS Catalina, an equally big release, was pushed back later than initially promised. The latest macOS update has finally rolled out and, fortunately, it isn't as bug-ridden as iOS 13. Unfortunately, it has its own share of controversy that is leaving some users and developers out in the cold.

macOS Catalina might be out as early as next week

macOS Catalina might be out as early as next week

iOS 13 already rolled out but, unlike the betas and Apple's announcements, it launched alone. The much-hyped iPadOS came a few days later but the matching macOS Catalina, a.k.a. macOS 10.15 was still nowhere in sight. Apple said it would start rolling out some time in October but didn't give a date users could pin on their calendar. But thanks to Apple's own Danish site, early adopters can look forward to next week to start their journey towards the latest macOS release.
