Apple says the T2 is a security chip, and if all it did were keep your data more secure, it would be worth it. Yet this little processor does so much else, and it has a startling effect on performance.
AppleInsider has the new base model 13-inch MacBook Pro on hand, and we wanted to see whether the single fan design on this new MacBook Pro is a problem for the thermal condition and, as such, the processing power — or if its able to take the heat.
Following Apple's Tuesday updates to its notebook range, the choice between a MacBook Air and the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is harder. But, there are significant differences between the two that will affect your buying decision.
Apple's security engineering chief Ivan Krstic will be making a reappearance at the Black Hat security conference in August, discussing the technologies protecting iOS 13 and macOS Catalina as well as how the Find My feature is kept secure.
Repairing newer Mac hardware, such as the 2018 Mac mini and MacBook Air, at an unauthorized service center may soon be impossible thanks to new diagnostics requirements involving Apple's T2 security chip, the company recently confirmed.
Apple's custom T2 chip recently made its way from the iMac Pro to the 2018 MacBook Pro, where it is responsible for a lot more than people think. AppleInsider explains everything you need to know about it.
