The Mac minis are back. These little pint-sized wonders do magical things despite their tiny size, so if you're looking for the very lowest Mac buy-in point, this is the way to go. Granted, you gotta come up with the peripherals, but if you want a Mac and it's time to ditch your old machine, this is a nice way to go. But get 'em while they're hot. Meanwhile, with the iMacs seeing a good price drop on new models, there's not much in the refurb line that can compete in pricing, so hit up the store and grab a new one of those beauties.
It's been a while since we've seen a good mockup of an unannounced Apple product, but never fear — some unidentified case makers for the next iPad in China or Japan allegedly have us covered. It's not clear if the photos are entirely accurate (although it's touted as a "perfect replica"), but they look as though they could be authentic owing to the relatively few deviations from the existing model.
Well, have we all cooled down since WWDC? Good. Sure, little bits of info keep on trickling in of this discovery inside the code of iOS 8's beta or in Yosemite's plist files, but for now we're firmly focused on new hardware - - until some new beta is released with lots of new goodies to dig into. For now, we've got some good news, some weird news, and some improvements all around, so let's get newsing.
We hear rumors that Apple's got some refreshes in mind for the iMac and code in Yosemite certainly is suggestive. But if you can't wait, we have some great deals on some iMacs and on a jumbo display that'll give you that iMac feeling if you picked up one of our highlighted refurb Mac minis in previous weeks, but there aren't any of those cute little refurbs in the deals of this week, as they're gone for now. Never fear, we've got other options, plenty of those.
Would you believe us if we told you there's a new model of iPad Air on the way? With iOS 8 set to debut this fall, new hardware isn't exactly a surprise, but now we have a few details on what to expect.
One of each, that's what we have for you this refurb Thursday. One of nearly each model Apple makes of everything that's refurbed for your budget conscious decisions. And since we're eyeing your wallets for you, we'll keep it to the base models. If you ever wanted to get in on the Apple ground floor, this week's got you covered. We're light on accessories, but heavy on the goods.
As is the case almost every year since the iPhone blasted onto the scene back in 2007, pieces and parts are slowly leaking out for this year's presumed iPhone 6, which may have finally revealed its backside this week.
So maybe you heard the rumor that the latest OS X beta suggests new iMacs are possible soon and you'd like to put off that purchase as long as possible. Good for you, but if the situation is desperate and you've got to get a new machine, consider the refurb market. Nearly new, Apple certified, and savings galore. Go have a look.
A little of this and a little of that. Something for everyone. That's what we've got for you. If you want a small sticker on a small computer, we've got you covered. You want a light laptop at a light price, we've got your back. If you want a bit of gadgetry, we can do that too. So dive on in and let's see how much you're going to save this week.
Looks like we've got a good handful of iPhone 6 and iOS 8 rumors cooking out there these days. No surprises to us. 'tis the season after all. As we move closer to WWDC, as we move closer to that traditional fall drop date, things start to percolate out there in the rumor mill world. So let's have a look at those and a few other tasty treats in this week's news roundup.
