According to DigiTimes, citing Taiwan-based supply chain sources,Â Apple will launch a thinner MacBook by late 2014 or early 2015.Â The report claims that Apple manufacturing partners haveÂ began production of components for the next-generation MacBook in small volumes as the launch of the notebook approaches.Â
Apple has just released OS X Yosemite Public Beta 2 (build number – 14A329r).Â It most probablyÂ changes and improvements included in OS X Yosemite Preview 6, which was released earlier in the week.
With the release of the iPad Air 2 (and next-generation iPad mini with Retina display), one of the most common rumors is the inclusion of Touch ID. Now, a new patent could outline Apple’s broader plan for their secure feature.
There have long been rumors about a 12-inch Retina MacBook Air, and Intel today said that the 14nm Broadwell chip, a key component of the rumored device, would ship in time for the holiday season.
Following a reference to a mid-2014 model Mac mini that was recently uncovered on an Apple support page for Boot Camp, and later removed, it has now been reported that a mid-2014 model 27-inch iMac was also briefly listed on the same page. Apple has yet to release a new Mac mini or 27-inch iMac this year, hinting that updates could be on the horizon.Â
On July 29, Apple officially introduced refreshes to the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display lineup, with slight tweaks under the hood for the new models. Now that they’re available, Other World Computing thought it would be the right thing to do to get them unboxed, test their SSDs, and maybe even show off the internal layout.
As expected, Apple has just launched updated 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook ProsÂ with faster versions of Intelâ€™s fourth-generation Haswell processors, and increased the RAM to 8GB for the 13-inch models and 16GB for the 15-inch models.
