Check Out This Apple Book Concept [Video]



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 Explains Why There's No 32GB of RAM on New 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.
