A new drone video has recently appeared on the Internet showing the progress on Apple’s new Campus 2. As you can see below, the main ring and other buildings are nearly completed. Constructions workers are finalizing most structures and starting to build outdoor cafes and the fountain inside of the main ring. Moreover, the landscaping work has already begun.
A growing number of new MacBook Pro users are complaining about random GPU lags and glitches occurring while using their laptops. In most cases, the issues appear when running resource-intensive apps like Adobe Media Encoder, Adobe Premiere, Photos and some others. It is currently unknown, whether the problem is connected with faulty GPU chips or other hardware issues. Moreover, it is difficult to tell how many MacBook Pro laptops are affected.
Below you can take a look at the video shared by one MacBook Pro user working in Adobe Media Encoder.
Apple has given up the idea of producing its own 5K Thunderbolt display. During the MacBook Pro media event in October, the company announced its partnership with LG and revealed the new LG Ultrafine 5K Display compatible with the laptops. Below you can take a look at the first short review of the 27-inch IPS external display for photographers, designers and other professional MacBook users.
The video was posted to YouTube by a well-known blogger Marques Brownlee. As it turns out, the display has a sleek design, nice build quality, and can power up the MacBook Pro when it is connected.

Apple has never created a true transformer similar to the Surface Book. That is why ConceptsiPhone has created a new concept of a device with a large screen, metal frame and large full-size keyboard. Below you can take a look at the video showing this device.
The transformer called the Apple Book is supposed to work on macOS rather than iOS. It has a very strange design and frankly speaking I don’t think Apple will even make something similar to this transformer.
Here’s how the creators describe their concept:
New incredible 3D concept video that shows the 'Apple Book', new iDevice / Mac that combining iPad with MacBook!
What do you think about the transformer? Do you like it?
A well-known iOS developer Adam Bell has managed to run Doom on the OLED Touch Bar of the new MacBook Pro. It’s currently unknown how the developer managed to get the make the old game working not even on the computer itself. Still, this is quite impressive.
Bell also notes that the Touch Bar itself is a useful feature.
Doom runs on pretty much everything… but can it run on the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar?
Side note, as ridiculous (ly amazing) as Doom is running on the Touch Bar is… the HUD is equally great
Apple unveiled the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro at the media event on October 27th. Currently, the company is shipping the devices to first lucky owners.
Below you can take a look at the video showing Doom running on the Touch Bar of the MacBook Pro.
Phil Schiller has once again confirmed that using 32GB of RAM would affect the battery life of new MacBook Pro units. According to Apple executive, using more memory would require a different design of the logic board and physically smaller battery. Apart from that, since the 32GB DDR module requires much more power than the current LPDDR memory, there’s no way to install it without reducing the battery life and performance of the laptop.
Apple’s main rival, Samsung, is planning to release a Jet Black version of the Galaxy S7 as soon as early next month. The report comes from The Korea Herald and looks quite legitimate.
Apple has launched a new iPhone repair program. If you live in the United States and your iPhone 6s suddenly turns off from time to time, Apple will repair it at no cost provided that the handset has no signs of physical damage and third-party repairs.
It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last couple of days. Let’s not waste time and take a look at the articles worth your attention right now.
According to the latest report from a reliable Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, the stock availability of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus still leaves much to be desired. Apple is still trying to catch up with the demand. This suggests that not all users will get their phones in time during the holiday season.
Less than a month after the official launch of the new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, Apple has released a new commercial about the new product. The ad is a bit longer than most Apple promo videos; it shows us some of the most iconic inventions and events that pushed the mankind forward. And, of course, the all-new MacBook Pro with OLED panel instead of function keys.
The commercial is available below or on Apple’s official YouTube channel.
The iFixit team has posted a teardown of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. Two weeks ago, the company posted a teardown of the entry-level laptop without the Touch Bar, revealing it was quite difficult to repair. As it turns out, the mid-range model is even worse when it comes to disassembling.
As noted KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will release three iPhone models in 2018. Only one will get an OLED display.
