It has been widely speculated that at some point of time, Apple will merge Mac OS X and iOS operating systems.
The first Macintosh was unveiled 30 years ago today, and Apple is commemorating this anniversary on its website, in its corporate headquarters and in the Mac App store. Apple’s executives drummed up interest in the anniversary by talking with Jason Snell of Macworld and David Muir of ABC News about the evolution of the Mac and the company’s inner workings.
The Mac celebrates it 30th anniversary tomorrow. To honor this milestone, Jason Snell of Macworld sat down with Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller, Vice President of Software Technology Bud Tribble, and Apple Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi to talk about the Mac and its future.
Apple started selling the new Mac Pro in December and shipped the device by the end of they year to early adopters. Supply, though, has been constrained from the start and it hasn’t been improving. As noted by MacRumors, ship dates for the Mac Pro now have slipped until March for many stores worldwide. In the US, the Mac Pro is available to ship in February.
iFixit tore down the Mac Pro earlier this week, giving the machine a stellar 8 out 10 for repairability. This high score makes the Mac Pro the most repairable machine in Apple’s current computer lineup. It easily beats out the iMac, which has a score of 5 out of 10 and the 2013 Retina MacBook Pro which scores the lowest possible 1 out of 10.
