AliExpress: 10 accessories required for every MacBook owner

Apple still produces some of the best laptops in the world. The main complaint about them is the unfortunate design of the keyboard: the butterfly mechanism often fails. But soon, according to rumors, this will be fixed. As for the rest, you can only find fault with a not very low price, a small number of ports (there is not only a slot for memory cards, but even a standard USB) and a poorly supplied package. There is nothing you can do about the price, and the other two problems are easy to solve by purchasing accessories. For example, on AliExpress.

Very powerful and wildly expensive: what you need to know about the new Mac Pro

On June 3, the non-annual conference for WWDC developers (actualapple.com has traditionally led the live broadcast) Apple announced a new Mac Pro – for the first time since 2013.

Unlike the previous model, which resembled an office bin in its shape, the new Mac Pro is assembled in a classic shape case. It feels continuity with respect to Mac Pro 2006 and PowerMac G5.

In a special video, Apple Design Director Johnny Ive talked about the main engineering solutions: a raised grille on the front panel with a special three-dimensional texture, a stainless steel frame and the ability to install wheels for transportation. The body can be disassembled in one simple motion – just turn the handle on top. Mac Pro is not prone to problems with overheating due to three large coolers and a large number of radiators.

New iPhone will cut bangs

TFI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that at least one iPhone model for 2020 will come out without a “bang”.

The design of the front panel will change if the iPhone gets a built-in display Touch ID scanner. Then Apple will be able to reduce the bang in size or even get rid of it by removing the TrueDepth sensor, necessary for Face ID.

It is unclear whether these design changes will extend to all Apple 2020 smartphones. Perhaps a model with a fingerprint scanner built into the screen will be exclusively issued for China.

Credit Suisse also issued a document for investors, which states that screen suppliers are actively developing display modules without top notching for Apple.
