Apple Will Know If You've Tampered With Its New Macbooks

Apple’s Macbooks are known to be difficult (if not impossible) to repair, but there’s always been the option if you’re stubborn enough. But in a teardown of the latest extra-pink Macbook, iFixit discovered something more worrying: screws that change if you tamper with them.


Apple Updates Its Super-Thin MacBook With New Intel CPUs

The super-thin, super-pretty Apple MacBook is an expensive luxury, but it also justifies its price with the fact that it’s by far the thinnest and lightest Mac notebook ever, with a full-fat, not-actually-a-tablet laptop experience in a body that weighs barely 920 grams. Apple has just given the MacBook a mid-lifecycle refresh, with Intel’s latest energy-efficient Core M chips and an extra hour of battery life.


The Pinkification Of Apple Gadgets Is Almost Complete

It started simply, with a new colour option for the Apple Watch. It was called “Rose Gold”, and it fit with Apple’s appeal to make its new wearable more fashion-friendly. Then it came for our iPhones, iPads and Beats headphones. Now, with Apple’s latest hardware update, the MacBook’s gone pink.


Typing On A MacBook Could Soon Be As Awful As Typing On An iPad

Have you tried to write an email, or worse, an essay on an iPad touchscreen? Well, soon that may be exactly how you type on a Macbook laptop.

Hidden amongst the excitement of releasing a two-year-old phone today, Apple also revealed another, far less exciting problem: a USB-C to Lightning cable, finally fixing a unique and stupid problem for the one per cent.


There's Finally A Way To Upgrade Macbook Storage

When I bought my Macbook Pro a year ago, I was feeling so internally guilty about spending $US1500 ($2,011) on a laptop that I only paid for 128GB of storage, a decision I’ve regretted about three times per day ever since. This solution isn’t cheap, but at least it will stop me whining.


Apple Is Recalling Faulty MacBook USB-C Charging Cables

Over the weekend, Apple announced that it’s recalling some USB-C charge cables that were included with its super-slim MacBooks in 2015 because they “may fail due to a design issue”.


Apple Admits That Delaminating Screens Might Actually Be A Problem

It’s taken 6,000 pissed-off customers, a Change.org petition, and an entire website named Staingate, but Apple has finally agreed that yes, a coating peeling off Retina Macbook displays is not good.


Apple Tilts Its MacBook Displays In-Store To Make You Buy, Buy, Buy

Anyone who’s paid any attention over the past decade or so will know that Apple is like the anti-Burger King. Things are done Apple’s way, and what everyone wants is (mostly) out of the question. The perfect example of that in action is Apple declaring that all Apple Store MacBooks’ displays must be kept at a 76-degree angle.


If You Water Cool The New Apple MacBook, It Doubles Performance

Fancy taking a $2000 computer, immersing it in water and praying that the Blu-tack you put over the ports keeps it alive? If you do*, you’ll be rewarded with a MacBook that’s twice as fast. (*don’t ever do this)
