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.
Several new rumors, which deal with Apple's long-anticipated smartwatch and the 12-inch MacBook Air have recently appeared on the Internet. According to the latest report released by a well-known and usually reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo, the Apple Watch will indeed hit the store shelves in March. Moreover, he is sure Apple will ship 2.8 million Apple Watch units in the first quarter of the availability of the smartwatch. Apart from that, the expert believes that the launch of the larger MacBook Air will also take place early this year - in the first quarter.
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.
Earlier today, a couple of interesting images appeared on the Internet. These images show something very similar to the display assembly for the upcoming 12-inch MacBook Air, which is expected to be officially released later this year. On the photos that are available below one can see the leaked part compared to Apple’s 9.7-inch iPad Air 2 and the 13-inch MacBook Air. We can easily notice that the display assembly is a bit thicker than the body of the newest iPad, however, that is still thinner than a body of the existing MacBook.
It is Sunday today, which means I have to tell you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. In order not to waste your time, I'll start right now.
Apple on Tuesday seeded another OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 beta to developers for testing. This is a fifth beta, which can boast of a wide number of minor performance improvements and bug fixes. The release comes just one week after the release of the fourth beta of OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 and about two months after the release of the very first Yosemite 10.10.2 version for developers.
According to the latest report from KGI, Apple is currently working on its own processor, which will power future generations of Macs. In fact, the analysts say that the new CPU may be created by Samsung in the next one or two years and even added to the future model of the 12-inch MacBook Air. The reason for the creation of its own processor is probably connected with recent delays from Intel. Apple wants to control the timing of Mac launches better.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple supplier called Quanta Computer is currently ramping up the production of the widely-rumored 12-inch MacBook Air. The reporters claim that the release of the new laptop will take place in the first quarter of this year. This goes in line with the recent rumors about the device.
Apple has just seeded a new OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 beta to developers for testing. The release comes nearly four weeks after the release of the previous beta and that is a bit strange, since the guys from Cupertino usually make new beta version available for developers once in two weeks. Such a long interval between two releases is probably caused by holidays.
