With Intel’s latest chips promising big improvements in battery life rather than performance, and delivering them in the case of the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, we had high hopes that the large MacBook Air was about to become an almost inexhaustible work machine. Powerful enough to use for pretty much any non-resource-intensive work and already beating the nine-hour mark in our battery tests, we figured it would cement its place as the ultimate road warrior’s machine. And it has, but only really by default.
Big is in at Apple. We already know that's true for the iPhone based on all the rumors surrounding the 4.7- and 5.5-inch models that are expected to hit shelves later this year, but now Bloomberg is reporting that we'll see a 12.9-inch iPad sometime in early 2015. Naturally, the sources "asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public."
iWork for Mac users had good reason to celebrate Wednesday as the usually secretive Apple unleashed a volley of information about which features it plans to bring back to the latest Pages, Numbers and Keynote versions with future updates. Could this be a sign of a kinder, gentler Apple? Time will tell, but don't expect to see it similarly sharing future plans for the next iPhone or iPad... that would just be crazy.
Seems like any time a new Apple product is released or updated, within days the company's support forums begin filling up with complaints over a variety of issues -- and the latest MacBook Pro refresh is no exception.
We're guessing the folks at iFixit would love to get their spudgers into that swanky new Mac Pro Apple unveiled at WWDC 2013 on Monday, but until that time, we'll have to make do with the latest MacBook Air instead.
On the heels of new product updates and the announcement of iBooks 3.0, Apple Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller took the stage in San Jose to introduce the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
Following up the MacBook Air refresh, senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller leapt straight into the MacBook Pro line, including a new “next generation” model that mostly matches the rumors we’ve been hearing lately.
By this time next week, we’ll already know what Apple has up its sleeve for the WWDC 2012 keynote -- but in the meantime, all we have to go on are leaks such as the one pictured here, which is reportedly the spec label from a new 13-inch MacBook Pro.
Apple rarely competes on low prices, but a new report claims that Cupertino may be planning an all-out pricing assault on the second generation of Ultrabook computers by introducing an even cheaper MacBook Air in Q3 2012.
