Any time you update the operating system on your PC or Mac, it is usually followed by a few days of holding your breath as you wait to see if there are any major bugs that will crash your or otherwise disrupt your system. As such, owners of some older Mac computers are finding themselves gasping for breath following a... Read more...
When consumer virtual reality made a resurgence with the launch of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, many people dismissed it as a short-lived gimmick, with widespread comparisons to the brief hype period surrounding 3D TVs. Those people have not been paying attention to the last two decades' determined efforts to use... Read more...
Today's smartphones and smartwatches heavily emphasize health features, with heart rate monitoring, sleep diagnostics, step counters, and the so forth. Relatively soon, however, Apple may add a new feature to its iPhone and Apple Watch devices—crash detection, which would then dial up 9-1-1 for you if you're in an... Read more...

Historically, teardowns of Apple's MacBook Pro laptops have not gone all that well, to put it nicely. Apple has not exactly been a champion of the right-to-repair movement, and more like a begrudging participant. Is the new MacBook Pro with Apple's upgraded M1 Pro and M1 Max processors any different? We'll have to... Read more...
Apple is looking into how it may change how you view AR (augmented reality) altogether...literally. Instead of projecting an image onto a lens, which is viewed by someone wearing an AR headset or glasses, Apple envisions beaming the image directly onto the user's eyeball itself. Apple recently unveiled its upcoming... Read more...
We can see the shiny tips of the pitchforks and the glow of torches already, so let's begin by saying this—we're fully aware people aren't lining up to buy Apple's new MacBook Pro laptops strictly to play games (if at all). Be that as it may, Apple chose to compare its revamped MacBook Pro models to PC gaming laptops... Read more...
It's almost impossible to remember a time before the Apple iPod. You know, back when we carried around cassette decks for running or walked cautiously holding our CD players (so they wouldn't skip when playing back our favorite mixes). Then came the Apple iPod, and it revolutionized the industry. It also ultimate made... Read more...
Here in the early going, benchmark comparisons pitting Apple's latest custom silicon against other hardware are a mixed bag of results. That's how it will probably go when the revamped MacBook Pro 16 and 14 laptops hit the street—how they fare will depend on the application. One that appears to favor Apple's newest... Read more...
Right about a year ago, Apple announced the first Macs with its own home-grown processor technology, dubbed the M1. The first 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini shipped with the company's new wonder-chip, and even the base model $700 Mac mini knocked our socks off at the time. However, CPUs don't stand... Read more...
It can sometimes be difficult to live up to lofty expectations, and Apple definitely piled the hype on its latest MacBook Pro models, powered by its next-generation M1 Max and M1 Pro custom silicon. But will the upgraded MacBook Pro lineup ultimately buckle under the weight of a mountain of hype and expectations?... Read more...
I have a confession to make. When it comes to Apple products, I like some of them. A lot. Like the iPhone lineup (I'm currently using an iPhone XS Max), and the AirPods Pro. Perhaps more controversial, I'm not bugged by the notch, not at all (though I understand why some people hate it). But I'm also not blind to the... Read more...

Apple may be on the precipice of releasing its latest processors, the M1 Max and M1 Pro, but that doesn't stop Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger from counting Intel out. Apple is now moving to its second generation of M1 CPUs after transitioning away from Intel, following 15 years of partnership. In 2020 Apple announced its own... Read more...
It was a little over a year ago when Apple announced plans to inject its Mac systems with its own custom Apple Silicon based on Arm, kicking Intel and its x86 chips to the curb in the process. What was said to be a two-year transition plan began in earnest with the M1 system-on-chip. That's officially a last-gen part... Read more...
You may have noticed that the Apple Store is temporarily unavailable this morning, with a message saying, "Be right back. We're making updates to the Apple Store. Check back soon."

Hey, guess what? Apple has finally decided to allow sideloading on iOS devices! Just kidding—anyone fooled has not been paying attention to the almighty institution that is Apple, the guardian of consumers and overseer of mobile security. Or something like that. It is, however, being pressured to follow in Google's... Read more...
A couple weeks ago, we wrote about a potentially frustrating iOS 15 messaging bug that could permanently delete precious photos saved to your iPhone, in certain circumstances.
