Early adopters of the new Mac Pro have been waiting with bated breath to find out how much Dell plans to charge for its new 4K monitor, which the company promised last month would retail for under $1,000. Turns out, it will be cheaper than expected.
Up until now, Apple has only used sapphire crystal for tiny components, such as the glass that covers the Touch ID button on the new iPhone 5s and a portion of the device's rear camera. But according to TechCrunch, new technology might allow Apple to start using it for iPhone screens much sooner than expected.
OS X Mavericks is finally here, so MacLife proudly presents a series of informative how-tos to keep you updated on what has changed and how to use it. Check back often to learn more about the newest Mac operating system from Apple.
One of the more surprising (and nicer) changes Apple made to OS X with Mavericks was the ability to use any TV or display connected to an Apple TV as a second display for your Mac. All Macs that supported AirPlay mirroring in OS X Mountain Lion now have the ability to use AirPlay-connected TVs as a second display in Mavericks. In this article, we’ll show you how to turn this feature on and configure additional options, like changing where the audio comes from and the size of the secondary display.

Size, weight, price and, yes, even the OS have industry experts singing its praises, including Apple stalwart Walt Mossberg, who went so far as to call it "a better choice than the iPad for people on a budget." But it looks like Google's race to the bottom with Amazon (the display costs just $10 more than the far smaller iPhone), has had some unfortunate side effects.
The latest rumor attached to the iPhone 5 comes courtesy of prolific, yet seldom reliable DigiTimes, which has apparently heard that Apple is "likely to adopt in-cell touch panels rolled out by Sharp and Toshiba Mobile Display" for this year's model.
Now that Apple’s media event for the third-generation iPad is official for March 7, all eyes will be on the company to unveil a higher resolution display.
