    Apple could release MacBook updates soon

    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.

    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.

    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.

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