Apple’s 12-inch MacBook contributed nicely to its notebook shipments for the June quarter of calendar year 2016, as they totaled an estimated 3.3 million, a nice bump up from the estimated 2.5 million in the March quarter.
Apple on Tuesday announced an update of their 12-inch Retina display MacBook. The updated MacBooks offer sixth-generation dual-core Intel Core M processors up to 1.3 GHz, with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.1 GHz, faster 1866 MHz memory, improved battery life, and a new Rose Gold color option.
Until now, the only solution to add more hard drive space on low capacity SSD macBooks was via a costly drive replacement or an external drive. The TarDisk Pear 2.0 offers a new option for seamlessly adding extra storage.
It’s hard to believe that one small change to the MacBook’s power adapter can make it a completely different experience, but that’s exactly what Ten One Design claims their $20 Blockhead accessory can do.
Apple has initiated a replacement program for the USB-C charging cables sold with the new MacBook. The program also covers USB-C charging cables sold separately. Apple says a design issue with the affected cables can cause them to fail.
One of the first things many users noticed about Apple’s recently introduced 12-in MacBook was the lack of a MagSafe charging cable. The usual magnetic breakaway charging cable was gone. Griffin earlier today unveiled the BreakSafe breakaway USB-C power cable to remedy that.
