13in macbook pro ssd service programme faq

Michael Simon reveals everything you need to know Despite Apple’s push to turn all Mac professionals into Touch Bar devotees, the 13in MacBook Pro with a traditional row of function keys has remained quite popular. If you own one, you might be able to take advantage of a new SSD service programme (fave.co/2ARWPmz).Here’s everything you need to know. Apple has announced a replacement programme for certain non-Touch Bar 13in MacBook Pros due to an issue that affects “a limited number of 128- and 256GB solid-state drives”.

Apple seemingly fixed most of them via a stream of software updates, but many users have complained about persistent issues with the screen. And Apple is finally doing something about it.

How to check if your iPhone X is affected If you’ve experienced one of the following issues your iPhone X is likely covered by this programme: 1.

12.9in ipad pro (2018)

Price: £1,869 from fave.co/2OxGqZe Can’t innovate any more, my ass. After thoroughly redesigning its iPhone and Apple Watch lines, Apple has now done the same for its iPads – removing Home buttons and Lightning ports, shrinking bezels, curving corners and generally making them look like they belong in 2018.In this review we take an in-depth look at the third-generation iPad Pro 12.9in. We benchmark its (absurdly fast) A12X Bionic processor, run battery and camera tests, and evaluate its radical new design, updated specs list and whopping prices. Price The latest 12.9in iPad Pro is available in a variety of configurations. Here’s the full price list. Note that as well as offering the most storage, the 1TB models come with an extra 2GB of RAM, although this isn’t officially…

apple pencil 2

Price: £119 from fave.co/2Q6OJQK The original Apple Pencil was the best iPad stylus from its 2015 launch until last month, when the second-generation model rolled into town. The new version is shorter, matte white and magnetically attachable, and has a single flat edge you can tap to trigger app-specific functions. But is it worth the extra money? In this article we review the Apple Pencil (2018), explore its design, features and value for money, and offer advice about whether it’s the right stylus for you. Compatibility Before we get too far into the question of whether the Pencil 2 is any good, it’s important to state that your choice of Pencil will be dictated by your choice of iPad – each iPad works with only one version of…

adobe premiere elements 2019

Price: £86.56 from fave.co/2DZYPw5 The new version of Adobe Premiere Elements may be a bit lighter on new features that most people are used to, but the 2019 version puts a laser focus on automated operations that make quick work of editing your family videos. With increasing reliance on its Sensei (fave.co/2APNr2R) artificial intelligence engine, Adobe assists users with tedious and complex tasks like picking the best photos or videos for a collage or trimming the fat out of movies before splicing them together.The first place you encounter improved automation is the brand new Home Screen, identical to the one in Photoshop Elements 2019 (£86.56 from fave.co/2QbndSQ). It lets you access new auto-generated collages and slideshows derived from the photos and videos you loaded into the Organizer, the built-in…

parallels desktop 14 for mac

Price: £69.99 from fave.co/2QxIINaVirtualization software like Parallels is usually associated with running Windows on a Mac, but virtualization can be used to also run other versions of macOS. I’ve been able to safely tinker with Apple’s latest developer or public beta by using virtualization to run them right inside the current stable release of macOS. I also keep older operating systems around to occasionally run software like Final Cut Pro 7, which was orphaned with last year’s macOS 10.13 High Sierra.Parallels Desktop 14 for Mac is now available and is fully optimized for macOS Mojave. Version 14 focuses less on whizz-bang new features and instead wisely focuses on where it counts: under-the-hood performance improvements. You’ll notice the difference each and every time you launch the application, which is the…
