The first revisions to the MacBook Pro 14"/16", introduced 15 months ago, have now made their debut before hitting the market. Apple has withdrawn the curtain and revealed the devices' improvements and what customers can expect.
The official system requirements for macOS Ventura have ended support for models released in 2016 or earlier, as Apple has done away with many of the old drivers. However, an open-source project targeted on Macs from 2007 or later hopes to confront the matter head on.
Word has been out for some time that WhatsApp is working on a native Mac version. After the closed beta phase via TestFlight, there's now an open beta version available for all users. Now, interested users can test the messenger out on Mac.
There's also an important update for the Mac – macOS 13.2 is now available for immediate download. The second update for Ventura underwent a very short beta phase and comes with a well-arranged number of innovations.
macOS 13 Ventura experienced its release to the public at the beginning of this week, with the quickest to the draw getting a chance to download the new operating system more or less immediately. Of course, the update is still available to download for those who didn't do so on Monday.
Today, both macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16 are arriving – both including the new and highly-awaited "Stage Manager" feature. Although Stage Manager does improve the iPad's flexibility, the feature feels buggy and out of place on the Mac.
Yet again, we are witnessing the beginning of Apple's intensive testing process for a system version, the release for which is still quite a way into the future. As is likely the case, such occurrences in the past have traditionally indicated brewing innovations and new features.
Apple delayed iPadOS 16 until October 2022 – and according to some reports, Stage Manager is still quite error ridden in its current pre-release state. There's not much time left for Apple to remedy the situation either.
When Apple presented iSync 20 years ago, it may have looked like just about any other application on the market. However, its development triggered a change for not only the Mac world – but the entire computer world.
For security reasons, especially for those in certain fields – it's recommended to only enable regularly used functions, and only when necessary. This rule goes for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth – although Apple sees things differently and seems set on turning the latter back on.
macOS Monterey's successor this Fall will be macOS Ventura and the 13th version of the operating system with yet another name of geographic origin. During yesterday's WWDC Keynote, Apple demonstrated which features it has been working on since the last update.
Apple just released a big software update for Mac users. Version 12.3 of macOS Monterey has just been released. The update brings countless improvements with it for areas such as Universal Control, iCloud Keychain, and more.
Apple added dark mode back in macOS 10.14 Mojave. Most users who switch between dark mode and light mode do so via the System Preferences, however, there are actually two quicker ways without additional software.
Universal Control is back again – at least in the first beta for iPadOS 15.4 and macOS 12.3. A new video shows how the practical feature can be used everyday and touches on some of its current limitations.
Some users who put their MacBook with macOS 12.2 into sleep mode and want to work with it later experience an unpleasant surprise: The battery of the devices drains rapidly for those affected when Bluetooth accessories are used.
With the release of macOS Catalina 10.15, Apple said goodbye to iTunes and replaced the feature with an expanded Finder and the new "Music" app. It now appears as if Apple is providing the latter with a technological renovation – as per macOS 12.2 Monterey's beta.
Apple revealed quite an impressive new feature at this year's WWDC for frictionless cross-play between the Mac and iPad. The new "Universal Control" feature has, however, faced some difficulties in development and been delayed.
Users of macOS Monterey now have the means to perform internet speed tests using tools integrated in the OS. Third party apps and websites are no longer necessary to check internet performance – a simple terminal command will provide all the necessary information.
Apps for streamings services are commonplace on iOS devices, however, the same can't be said for the Mac App Store. Now, Amazon has added its "Amazon Prime Video" streaming app to the Mac App Store, thus somewhat remedying the disparity.
Thanks to SharePlay, it'll soon be possible to share screen content on Mac with contacts during FaceTim content. The feature isn't yet available in the current version of the macOS Monterey beta, however, it is in the beta for macOS 12.1 and works exactly as Apple had described.
