The new (rumored) 24-inch iMac alongside the potential new design of the iMac Pro

Apple Silicon is the name Apple will be using for their custom made ARM-based chips that will be transitioning over to the next two years.

At WWDC Apple revealed a Mac mini as the first such Mac to have an Apple Silicon chip inside, and this was an Apple A12Z, the same chip as inside the iPad Pro 2020 — but this Mac mini is only for developers.

When will the first Silicon Mac be available for the public?

Apple said that the first MacBook with an Apple Silicon chip will arrive by the end of 2020. It seems like this new Mac will be either the 12-inch MacBook or a new 13-inch MacBook Pro, or even a MacBook air. …

The car industry has been alive for over a century, and with it comes new companies and car ideas that can elevate the industry as a whole.

In recent years, one company has been pushing to be even greater and truly change the way that the car industry is run.

Yes, we’re talking about Tesla. The company that has gone and made electric cars and is trying to swap the entire world out of the gas craze and into the new millennium.

Elon


2 years ago, Elon Musk gave Tim Cook the opportunity to buy Tesla for 10% of what it’s worth today. So, why did Tim Cook turn down the offer?

According to a tweet by Elon Musk, he gave Apple the opportunity to buy Tesla for $60 billion. Tesla is now worth $730 billion.

Obviously, we would have all done some things differently with hindsight. But Apple had a couple of main reasons as to why they didn’t buy Tesla.

Apple and Tesla are very similar companies. Both are very popular brands, have a great set of supports, and have visionary leaders who develop products that generate extreme levels of hype.

You may think that this makes Tesla a perfect acquisition target for Apple, but according to Apple analyst Neil Seibert, there are three things that Apple does not look for when they’re searching to buy new companies. …

After months of theorizing, we finally have some confirmation that the next iPad Pro will be launching as soon as March this year. The confirmation comes from one of Apple’s most reliable leakers — Jon Prosser.

Jon Prosser responded to a user asking him about the release of the next iPad Pro with one word: March.


All M2 chips news from the redesigned MacBook Pro to the iMac

Let’s talk about the future of Apple Silicon Macs and how we could see a redesigned MacBook and an even more powerful M2 chip this year.

The first story comes from popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who states that Apple is indeed working on a redesigned MacBook that is launching in the second half of 2021.

The redesigned MacBooks in question will be the 14-inch and 16-inch. The MacBooks are in dire need of a redesign especially since Apple has retained the same design for the last 5 years. It’s about time we get thinner bezels.


Spoiler alert: It’s still amazing.

The iPhone X has undoubtedly achieved somewhat of a legendary status when it comes to the iPhones. It has a beautiful, timeless design despite it being 4-years-old at this point.

This specific model doesn’t feel outdated at all. In fact, if you’re not a complete Apple fanboy/girl, using something like the iPhone X may not feel any different than an iPhone 12.

For the front, you have the beautiful 5.8-inch super retina OLED panel.

Is the display perfect? Absolutely not.

Is it good? Yes!

This panel is still extremely good, and when you compare it to all the other iPhones that have come out since the iPhone X: the difference is unnoticeable.
There is no increase in refresh-rate, no Touch ID, but these things still haven’t been added/readded in the latest series. …


Let’s talk about whether Apple’s extended warranties are really worth your money.

Let’s focus on something that is very important and also quite confusing at times.
I’m talking about Apple’s limited warranty and AppleCare+.

“Service and support from the people who know your Apple products best.” is the welcoming message on Apple’s AppleCare products page.
In general, Apple support is really well praised and there’s a reason for that besides the fact that it’s expensive. For most of the time, you’ll experience great customer service with Apple’s employees. Regardless of whether they’re able to help you or not.

Apple’s limited warranty is typically used as a mean to provide you with peace of mind, and coverage in specific areas for the one year after your purchase. …

Sketch of what the Apple Car could look like (not confirmed)

The electric car industry is something that is finally taking off after years of companies trying to make them feasible in terms of driving them, and appealing to those who have been used to gas-filled cars their whole lives.

Tesla is currently the front-runner in making these things happen, but now it’s been reaffirmed that Apple is going to be getting into the electric car game as well. In fact, Apple has been sussing it out for a few years now while they’ve been working on other projects. It’s definitely not something they just decided to make recently.

The Apple electric car project (codename — Titan) is an electric car project undergoing research right now at the company. The Cupertino giant has yet to openly discuss any of its self-driving research, but around 5000 employees were reported to be working on the project as of 2018.


Let’s take a look into Apple’s master plan behind offering cheaper devices

In general, smartphone sales have actually started to decline over the past couple of years. This isn’t because smartphones were just a fad and they’re dying now, rather everyone who wanted one and can afford one already has one.

If we take a look at the smartphone penetration rate in the US, we can see that the adoption rate has actually been slowing down since 2010. More recently, since 2017 the penetration has almost gone sideways. We’re likely going to see a complete plateau this decade.


The powerhouses Apple will release in 2021 might surprise you

Back in March, Apple released the fourth-generation iPad Pro, and while this device did come with some improvements like the LiDAR sensor, the 6GB of RAM, nobody was blown away.
It’s true we can’t expect big changes from Apple every year, but the A12Z chip, although powerful, turned out to be more or less identical to the A12X (the previous model of the chip). To make it even worse, in some instances the A12X was even faster.

This is why whenever I saw someone buy the 2020 iPad Pro, I couldn’t help but wonder if they would do the same thing if they knew how identical the latest iPad Pro was to the 2-year-old 2018 version. …
