The Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro is something that I’m still struggling a bit with this M1 model that I’m assessing right now but I did accidentally discover a quick way to adjust the volume. I’ve been tapping on the volume key then sliding the volume but I found you can tap and holdContinue reading “How to quickly adjust the volume on the Touch Bar”
One area of the M1 that looked super impressive was the claims of 20 hours of battery life, well for me it’s been a bit better. I realised that this week I’ve been Job seeking (heavily using Apple Notes and Safari), listening to music, using Mail and the occasional switch to Apollo for Reddit orContinue reading “Apple’s claims about M1 battery life are all true”
With my 5 year old 12 inch MacBook retired now thanks to the dreaded keyboard issue I decided to put it on eBay and get myself an upgrade. I went for the 2020 M1 MacBook Pro with 16GB Ram and 256GB storage from the Apple refurbished store. Unfortunately my experience was only 5 hours longContinue reading “M1 MacBook Pro hands on”
Just shared my thoughts on yesterdays event over on my newsletter, where I’m starting to share more of my thoughts on gadgets, tech and apps.
Wow, the iMac looks great. This looks amazing and in Orange! I love that Apple are bringing back some colour to the line up – it’s much needed in my opinion. It’s 24″, which is fine for most people, I have a current 27″ and it’s about as big as I would want to useContinue reading “Apple announces a new form factor iMac”
The best thing about the new Apple TV for me was the new remote, well the good news is that you can order it for your existing Apple TV.
I though this story on The Verge detailing several issues with the company Apple uses to deal with its trade in’s very interesting. There are a few things I wonder Is this a US only issue? Do customers think it’s Apple that deals with it? What about in store? Is it US only? As someoneContinue reading “Apple need to be clearer on trade in”
Apple have finally confirmed the 20th April 2021 as their next event, streamed online as usual and no audience as expected in these times. I don’t think you can read anything into the invite image aside from the colours. To my eyes this is showing a line of spring colours for maybe watch bands, casesContinue reading “What will Apple announce at next weeks event”
The only portable computer I have these days is the 12″ MacBook, mine is from 2016. I love it, I use it throughout the day and it’s so thin and light I take it pretty much everywhere with me. The battery still lasts all day, (thankfully) the keyboard is still working and it’s really durable.Continue reading “Imagining an M1 based 12″ MacBook”
I think that if this report by Mark Gurman at Bloomberg is to be believed Apple are developing a new ‘home’ product that combines an Apple TV, HomePod and Camera to use FaceTime and I think it’s about time. It makes perfect sense to have something that we could use instead of crowding around theContinue reading “Apple developing new Apple TV with HomePod functionality and a camera?”
