It doesn't matter how important your business process is, there really is no excuse for fiddly and complex user interfaces, often used features that are nested deep in the innards of the app, or inconsistent software behavior. If your workers are using better computers at home, or better mobile devices, then ...
9to5Mac spotted the program, which will allow users to get the computer's battery replaced on certain non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro models. Apple notes that a small number of computers manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017 have a faulty component which causes the battery to ...

The Street is perusing those personal computer shipment data for Q1 that came out after the closing bell yesterday. David Wong with Wells Fargo calls the results "fairly good,” prompting him to reiterate his Outperform ratings on Intel (INTC), Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), and Micron Technology (MU).
Apple has been pushing developers to update their apps to 64-bit technology. That enables faster apps that can juggle large amounts of data more efficiently than the 32-bit processors common in older computers and mobile devices. Apple's modern, underlying technology for its computers -- such as its ...
Apple's iMac Pro lineup incorporates Intel's highest-end Xeon W processors, which are designed to be used in systems with a single processor. I expect that future iMac Pro computers will continue to use Xeon W processors, and that the Mac Pro will support up to two future Xeon processors in the same ...
The final line from Apple's iPad commercial last November was probably meant to spark a reaction — and it was successful.

It is more believable that Apple is making new co-processors for more Mac OS X computer products. There is little financial incentive to drop Intel processors on Macs. A BofA Merrill Lynch analyst, Wamsi Mohan, said Apple can save $40 to $50 if it uses its own in-house Mac processors. That translates to an ...
Apple (AAPL - Free Report) has been planning a major overhaul of its Mac Pro computers, released in 2013, for quite some time now.

When Apple announced a shift from IBM and Motorola's PowerPC chips in 2005, competitors using Intel's chips in their computers had a big edge in performance.

Steve Jobs's involvement with the piece included a pre-taped interview, where he talked about Apple ][ computers being “the bicycle for the mind,” in addition ... brought on to a news show because they had opposing views, were able to agree on something, namely that computer literacy was a good thing.
I asked for a Mac because Apple products were all I knew. I remember when they used a cart to roll in the first Apple computer to my elementary school classroom, an Apple IIe. I played Number Munchers, and later Oregon Trail on an Apple IIgs machine. These were Apple Computers, not Macs. I remember ...
Apple announced support for Thunderbolt 3-based external GPUs with macOS High Sierra 10.13.4. Only select GPUs, external GPU docks, and Apple computers are supported, however, and the feature still won't work on Windows Boot Camp. On the computer side, 2016-and-later MacBook Pro laptops, ...

On April 1, 1976, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak formed Apple Computer out of Job's garage in Los Altos, Calif. The two geniuses joined forces to sell Wozniak's invention, the Apple I, but neither had any idea that the hobbyist machine would soon birth the global personal computer market. But did you ...

Apple has spent the last few years insisting that the iPad can replace your computer, and I've never understood how that could possibly be true.

The source code for Apple's Lisa, the computer that pre-dated the Mac, is to be released, allowing anyone to tinker with an important slice of IT history. The Computer History Museum (CHM) announced that it had recovered the code and that Apple was reviewing it. Once the code is cleared for release, ...
One of the biggest challenges of working with Apple is the high level of secrecy around its products. Not only does the company limit what suppliers can say about the relationship, but partners often don't know Apple's future plans for its phones, watches, computers and other devices. As a result, they can ...

To do that, they use a computer science strategy called differential privacy.
