Apple has begun sending invitation to a new media event, which will take place on Monday, March 9th, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. It is currently unclear what device the guys from Cupertino will unveil. Many things point to the announcement of the Apple Watch, however, Apple remains silent and gives no comments on the issue. The company may announce the long-anticipated 12-inch MacBook Air or slightly refreshed 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Airs as well.

After hundreds of users’ complaints and months of silence, Apple has finally announced a repair program for those MacBook Pro models, which suffer from graphics issues. The list of models eligible for the repair includes 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pros released in 2011, 15-inch MacBook Pro released in 2012 and 15-inch MacBook Pro released early in 2013. Moreover, Apple says it will contact those users, who had to pay to fix the aforementioned problem earlier in order to issue a refund.
According to a new rumor, which has been recently shared by the Taiwanese insiders, the guys from Cupertino may soon add the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to a number of next-generation devices, namely, the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad. While such a rumor hasn’t yet been confirmed by reliable analysts or Apple suppliers, the addition of a fingerprint sensor may allow users to keep their data secured on every device they utilize. Moreover, placing a Touch ID on a laptop or a mouse can possibly make purchases with the help of Apple Pay even faster and easier.
It is Sunday today, that is why I have made up a list of the most interesting posts of the past seven days. As usual, the articles worth your attention are available below. You may take a look at them right now.
According to the latest rumors shared by reliable insiders, the guys from Cupertino will show us an updated MacBook Air later this month. Since Apple has no media events planned for February, this won’t be the 12-inch MacBook with Retina display and a number of serious performance improvements. This will be just a slightly better version of the existing laptop. The updated MacBook Air is expected to become available on February 24th.
Apple has recently released the very first OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 beta to developers for testing. The release of the new version comes just a week after the public release of OS X Yosemite 10.10.2, which contained a number of stability improvements and a fix for the Wi-Fi connectivity issue. In case you don’t remember, this issue affected a wide number of Mac and MacBook users all over the world.
Apple on Tuesday released OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 to users worldwide. The public release comes several months after the release of the previous version of Yosemite, which took place in October, and about a week after the release of the sixth beta. This time the newest version of the operating system for Macs has many things to boast of.

It is Sunday today, that's why I've made up a list of the most interesting posts of the last seven days. This week was full of events worth your attention, so make sure you check out all of them.
As you probably know, apart from releasing the Apple Watch and the 12-inch MacBook Air sometime this year, the guys from Cupertino are expected to launch the new version of its iPad. This version will feature an enormous 12-inch display (yes, just like the next-gen MacBook), thin aluminum body, Touch ID fingerprint sensor and a bunch of other useful features. People familiar with the matter claim the tablet will be targeted at the enterprise users and called the iPad Pro. Keeping these things in mind, a well-known designer Martin Hajek has recently created a new iPad Pro concept.
Yesterday, I told you about the leaked images showing something similar to the display assembly for the 12-inch MacBook Air. As it turns out, I didn't mention one conspicuous detail about the next-generation laptop. This detail is the new redesigned logo on the lid, which may lose its backlight and become a rather boring polished logo similar to the one from the iPad Air 2.
