It's been a little over a year since we reviewed the 2020 Mac mini with Apple's M1 silicon inside, and so it's high time for a discount, don't you think? Amazon thinks so, and has marked down the potent little system to match its lowest price ever. You can find the M1 Mac mini (2020) on Amazon for $569.99 right... Read more...
Speaking from experience, one of the side effects of getting older is an uptick in creaking noises coming from places they never did before (back, knees), to go along with lingering aches and pains. It sounds like the iPad Air might be getting to that age. The newest version with its fancy M1 processor released to... Read more...
Need a new tablet? Apple this week unveiled its latest iPad Air model, the first in the line to feature an M1 processor (just like the iPad Pro) and it's now available to preorder.

The house that Steve Jobs built just recorded its best quarter ever, and current CEO Tim Cook deserves a ton of credit for that. Under his leadership, Apple posted and all-time high $123.9 billion for its fiscal 2022 first quarter (period ended December 25, 2021), which is an 11 percent year-over-year gain. Net income...

Apple's iMac Pro all-in-one desktop is long overdue for a refresh (or a comeback, if you prefer), and assuming one does come along, the expectation up to this point was that it would feature an existing M1 Pro or M1 Max processor. Perhaps not. A leaker with a decent track record tipping Apple products claims the iMac... Read more...
Apple has been moving away from Intel processors to its own custom Arm-based Silicon since November 2020. If one well-known leaker is right, the Apple Silicon transition could wrap up in 2022 with the release of an all-new Mac Pro. Back in August 2021, a similar report suggested the Cupertino-based tech giant would... Read more...
Intel has reacquired the services of Jeff Wilcox, who spearheaded the transition to Arm and M1 chips for Apple.

Right about a year ago, Apple announced the first Macs with its own home-grown processor technology, dubbed the M1.

However, CPUs don't stand... 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...
By all accounts—even our own—the Apple M1 SoC powering the company's newest machines is a beast, but it comes with a drawback in that you can only run MacOS on it. A lot of folks love MacOS for various reasons, to be sure. It's also undeniable that the proprietary OS limits your access to the majority of desktop and... Read more...
Apple first announced its intention to shift from Intel processors to its homegrown Apple Silicon in Spring 2020, and the first models launched last fall (Mac mini, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air).

Apple's newfangled iPad Pro models powered by its home brewed M1 system-on-chip (SoC) can cost as much as $2,399, if opting for the flagship 12.9-inch variant with Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity, 2TB of built-in storage, and 16GB of RAM. Now imagine spending all that money and then learning that developers are... Read more...
The latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro was supposed to be an engineering triumph for Apple.
