the best apple tech

This is a particularly quiet time of the year in many ways — for starters, the holiday season is wrapped up now and we’re just starting to slowly, cautiously, welcome in the new year. There’s not a great deal going on with Apple either, but that’s not surprising, though, since 2018 was a tremendous year for the company, what with the tandem release of macOS Mojave and iOS 12, three new iPhones, the Apple Watch Series 4 with its potentially life–saving, features, and in the latter portion of the year, a new MacBook Air, iPad Pros and — shock horror — a new Mac mini! Nobody could say 2018 was a boring year, or one that didn’t bring a few surprises that made us love Apple that little bit more.A…

do you dare to repair?

THE GOOD NEWS: Apple’s latest MacBook Air is more repairable than ever. The bad news: The T2 chip in this and other models blocks unauthorized repairs.Apple devices do not have a good reputation for repairability. Repairers and upgraders have complained for decades that Apple routinely uses screws with non–standard heads, making it a challenge just to get inside, and components glued or even soldered in place, making it hard to repair them, let alone upgrade them. For example, the memory is not user–upgradeable in iMacs and MacBook Pros post–2012, and the SSD storage is soldered directly to the circuit board in MacBook Pros post–2016.Now, though, in one of its renowned teardowns, iFixit has found that the 2018 MacBook Air is much more repairable than previous models.

free fault repairs

NONE OF THIS should matter, of course, if you’re unlucky enough to have bought a defective product. On top of the usual warranties, Apple is offering free repairs for faulty 13–inch MacBook Pro units without Touch Bar sold between June 2017 and June 2018. The 128GB and 256GB SSD drives in these are at risk of failure, resulting in loss of data.If you think your MacBook Pro is affected by this issue, you can submit your device’s serial number on a dedicated web page at bitly.com/mfmbpssd. If your device is eligible, you can take it to an Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider, or mail it to Apple (Apple says you should back up your drive first). If you have already paid for a repair, you can claim a…

6 things we wish siri understood

1 GeographyWith full access to Maps, how do you so often mistake place names in our own neighborhood for towns the other side of the state, then refuse to listen when we try to spell them out? You‘re not a husband simulator.2 PreferencesThanks for telling us a cup of flour weighs 4.2oz, but we were asking for a friend in Europe. Can you answer in metric? Hmm, apparently not. It’s easy enough for our kitchen scales, but sure, all you’ve got is an A12X processor and a server farm.3 RelevanceAll right, Siri, it’s a tricky word and people say it differently. But if we’ve just set a reminder for January, what are the chances we’ve moved on to talk about Fairbury, Nebraska?4 Social media‘Hey Siri, tweet my last photo with…
