    Xiaomi takes aim at Apple with a Macbook Pro rival priced from $858

    Xiaomi is shooting a number of arrows at Apple today. Smartphones aside, it just launched an affordable take on the Macbook Air that ships with Windows. The first Xiaomi laptop was a shot at the Macbook Air when it was unveiled in the summer of 2016, and the company is back with its take on Apple’s more expensive computer. The Mi Notebook Pro — because all comparisons start with… Read More

    Apple’s MacBook and MacBook Pro get routine processor and SSD boost

    Apple gave its MacBook and MacBook Pro lineup a small boost today at WWDC — the machines are getting new Kaby Lake processors and faster solid-state drives across the board. Apple’s 15-inch Pro is getting faster standard graphics, and an upgraded entry-level 13-inch Pro will retail for $1,299, sans Touch Bar, of course.

  • Apple could release MacBook updates soon

    Apple could release MacBook updates soon

    According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple is about to release updated MacBook and MacBook Pro models. The company could announce the refresh at its WWDC keynote on June 5. The 12-inch MacBook with a retina display hasn’t been updated in a year. The design still works quite well, so I wouldn’t expect anything more than a specification bump. Maybe Apple is going to add a… Read More

  • Microsoft Office hits the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar

    Microsoft Office hits the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar

    The new MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar arrived with some pretty strong first-party support, but it was clear that it would take some key partners to really make the secondary Retina Display sing. Photoshop compatibility arrived late-last year, and now Microsoft is finally ready to go live with Office support , which along with Adobe’s offering, was announced at launch, but not quite ready… Read More

    LG’s 5K MacBook Pro monitor is reportedly having issues with Wi-Fi routers

    When you shell out around $1,000 for a monitor, it ought to ship with a minimal set of expectations. Like, say, being able to use the thing within arm’s reach of a router. LG’s UltraFine 5K Display, which was designed in tandem with Apple for the release of the new MacBook Pro, is reportedly experiencing some pretty big issues on that front. 9to5Mac confirmed with an LG support… Read More

  • Touch Bar MacBook Pros are being banned from bar exams over predictive text

    Touch Bar MacBook Pros are being banned from bar exams over predictive text

    When it launched late last year, the new MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar was largely reliant on first-party applications to show off what it could do. Since then, a number of other companies have jumped on board, helping the secondary screen grow into something more than novelty. Of course, as with any new technology, there’s going to be some unanticipated downside. Test taking… Read More

    Apple releases macOS 10.12.3 with MacBook Pro GPU and battery fixes

    Apple has just released an update to macOS Sierra. 10.12.3 is a bugfix update, but it brings some much-needed changes for the new MacBook Pro released late last year. With today’s update, Apple has issued a couple of fixes for the graphics chipset in the 15-inch model. Apple has also fixed the Safari icon fetching bug that was affecting battery life. There are many screenshots and videos… Read More

  • Consumer Reports now recommends the MacBook Pro after a software fix

    Consumer Reports now recommends the MacBook Pro after a software fix

    Apple’s newest computers will no longer have to bear the title of the first MacBooks not to receive Consumer Reports’ coveted seal of approval. After working with the company over the holidays to address irregular battery life tests, ranging from an extremely inconsistent 3.75 to to 19.5 hours, the publication has re-run tests to much better effect. The new tests were run after… Read More

    Apple says Consumer Reports MacBook Pro battery testing used flawed methods

    Last month, Consumer Reports came up with some interesting battery test results with the latest MacBook Pro models. Results ranged from 3.75 hours to 19.5 hours. Many in the Apple community thought that something was off, either a software bug or a benchmarking issue — it turns out it was both. Apple worked with Consumer Reports over the holidays to find out why the battery test… Read More

  • Phil Schiller says Apple is working with Consumer Reports in wake of MacBook Pro battery issues

    Phil Schiller says Apple is working with Consumer Reports in wake of MacBook Pro battery issues

    In a year that’s been largely lackluster for Apple and downright bizarre for battery technologies, Consumer Reports’ refusal to recommend the new MacBook Pro feels like a too-perfect microcosm of the past 12 months. In the wake of online complaints surrounding the recently refreshed laptop line’s longevity, the review stalwart handed the 15-inch version of the laptop 56/100… Read More

    MacOS Sierra update fixes MacBook Pro graphics issue and ditches “battery time remaining” estimate

    Apple today is rolling out an update to macOS Sierra that addresses several issues with MacBook Pro computers, including the graphics problems on late-2016 MacBook Pro computers. Plus, in response to reported battery life concerns on these devices, Apple will now remove the “time remaining” display from the menu bar pull-down on the Mac, noting it was an inaccurate representation… Read More

  • Photoshop adds MacBook Pro Touch Bar support

    Photoshop adds MacBook Pro Touch Bar support

    Of all the third-party partners announced onstage at Apple’s big MacBook Pro unveil back in October, Adobe was almost certainly the most enticing. In the two months since the Touch Bar was shown off, Apple’s mostly relied on its own proprietary software to demonstrate the appeal of the new input device, which ranges from the fairly useful (Final Cut Pro) to the kind of neat… Read More

  • Just because you can play Doom on the MacBook Pro Touch Bar doesn’t mean you should

    Just because you can play Doom on the MacBook Pro Touch Bar doesn’t mean you should

    “Does it run Doom?” has long been the gold standard of getting stuff to play on other stuff that it probably shouldn’t be played on. The answer is almost invariably “yes.” The longer answer is usually more along the lines of “yes, but why would you want to?” That certainly applies here. Sure you could play the classic first-person-shooter on that… Read More

  • The best things you can do with the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar right now

    The best things you can do with the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar right now

    The Touch Bar is an interesting proposition. Part innovation, part work around. The technology is Apple’s attempt to embrace a new form of input while continuing to eschew touchscreen on its computers. I was mostly pleasantly surprised by the technology, in terms of its capability, versatility and responsiveness, but for now, it’s not exactly a game changer. The Touch Bar is an… Read More

    Here are all of the third-party apps that will support the new MacBook’s Pro Touch Bar

    When Apple debuted the new Touch Bar MacBook a few weeks back, the company spent a majority of its time on-stage focused on the ways in which its own software interacted with the new feature. No surprise there, really. After all, Apple had a vested interest in showing off its own wares – and a tighter controller of what it develops in house, The company is also acutely aware that if… Read More

    Apple looks ahead with the new MacBook Pro

    My MacBook Pro is on its last legs. The anti-glare laminate began bubbling up some time ago, spreading across the screen like an untreatable rash, fogging up the webcam in the process. The hinge is loose, so the screen shakes when someone walks by. The little black rubber bumpers have fallen off the bottom and, every so often, there’s an audible buzz of a fan rumbling from under the… Read More

    How auto unlock makes the Mac more accessible

    My workflow is predominantly iOS-centric, but, lately, I’ve been turning more to the Mac — my girlfriend’s 15” MacBook Pro — to get work done. I’ve enjoyed getting reacquainted with Apple’s desktop operating system. I like the Mac. While it’s true the 12.9” iPad Pro is generally more accessible than a laptop due to iOS’s… Read More
