Today Apple released its 2020 MacBook Pro. A lot of things have changed with this computer, and we will go over them in this article.
The 2020 MacBook Pro comes with up to a tenth generation processor that allows for 80% faster graphic performance according to their website. It also has a retina display and true tone, which allows the screen to look good no matter where you are. Just like last year’s model, it has a touch bar, Touch ID, and the magic keyboard.
One thing that changed about the magic keyboard is the arrows. This year’s model has a “t” shape to them instead of the rectangle shape that came with previous models. This could take some getting used to, but in the long run, it will make getting things done much easier.
This computer comes with up to 4TB of storage, which is double what the 2019 model offered. This makes the 2020 MacBook Pro an amazing option for anyone who uses their computer a lot. This is the most storage that Apple has ever allowed in one of their computers, so this is really something to get excited about.
It also comes with the new Apple T2 Security Chip, so that your computer is always secure. If you ever worry that someone is going to steal your information or hack your computer, worry no more. This chip helps a lot with security and gives the user a better peace of mind.
The brightness on this computer goes all the way up to 500 nits, which is extremely bright. We already mentioned that it comes with True Tone technology, but it also comes with 25% more colors than before to offer a better experience. For people who like to listen to music on their computer, it also comes with wide stereo sound.
You can connect your MacBook to more devices ever with four USB-C charging ports built-in. You have two on each side, and one headphone jack on one of the sides. This computer supports Sidecar just like previous models, but is much more powerful than previous models.

The Apple Pencil is a great tool for anyone with an iPad. In this post, we will go over the differences between the first and second Apple Pencil, as well as discussing who and how you might use it.
I find that I really end up using my Apple Pencil a lot. I use it to take notes and draw, and it is actually really nice. The only real difference between the first and second is that in the first series, you had to charge it with a lightning cable. The second series can charge on your iPad Pro.
This is an amazing tool for any students who have an iPad and want to take notes on it, or for any artists. It feels a lot nicer than using your hand to write. This allows you to actually be able to draw on your iPad, which is very nice in my opinion. An accessory that I would really recommend getting along with an Apple Pencil is a Paperlike Screen Protector. This makes it feel like you are writing on paper, and I have to say, it feels really nice.
I think that a lot of people really benefit by using this. It is an amazing tool for anyone who has an iPad and uses it frequently. I personally really love using this, and if you are a person who matches any of the descriptions above, I think that you would like it too.

Have a good one,
We’ve done reviews of the MacBook Air, but not the MacBook Pro, so here we go. This computer comes in a sixteen inch version and a thirteen inch version. The biggest difference with this computer compared to previous MacBooks is that it features a Touch Bar that allows you to do multiple tasks with just the touch of a finger. This feature seems really nice, but it seems like it is not being used as much as people would have originally thought.
The sixteen inch version of this computer will be better for people who are going to be doing a lot of photo editing, or any other activity where they would need a larger screen. The thirteen inch version will be good for anybody else who doesn’t want to spend an extra $1,100 dollars on a computer.
This computer also features Touch ID just like the previous generation, so that’s nice. I think that it would be really cool if Apple would put Face ID into their MacBooks. I think that this would make getting into your computer much easier.
The keyboard on this computer is the Apple Magic Keyboard which only has 0.3mm of key travel which allows you to type easier and quicker. Older models of this computer had keys that had 0.7mm of travel which made them feel a lot mushier, which is something that a lot of people did not enjoy. I personally think that the Magic Keyboard feels a lot better to type on.
Overall, this is a very nice computer that I would recommend to anyone who thinks that they need one. It can function as almost anything that you need it to, so it really works for a wide variety of people. You can get the 13 inch MacBook Pro for $1,199 or the 16 inch MacBook Pro for $2,249 using either one of these links. If you liked this post, like it and leave a comment anything else!
I hope you have a great day,
The Apple Watch is a product from Apple that a lot of people still seem to be pretty unsure about. In this post, I will tell you my honest opinion about the Apple Watch and all of its features.
Some people think that the Apple Watch is just a smaller replacement of a phone, but it really can’t replace a phone. I am a pretty active person, so I use my Apple Watch to record any run’s, bike rides, or any other random workout. I love this feature of the Apple Watch because it gives you in depth statistics of your workout. I also like the activity rings. In case you don’t know what those are, there are three activity rings. Stand, Move, and Calories. You can adjust the calories to your preference, but none of the other two. Stand is set so that you stand up once each hour for twelve hours and move is how many minutes you have moved that day out of thirty.
If you don’t have your phone on you, the Apple Watch can take calls and texts. Calls are pretty much the same on an Apple Watch as it would be on your phone, but the main difference comes with the texting. You can’t type, so you can either talk into it or write what you want to text. You can also scroll through emojis to send, which I really like.
Some apps that are available on the App Store are available for Apple Watch as well. Only certain apps will do this. A lot of apps will not, so this is really the main reason that an Apple Watch will not be able to replace a phone. On the Watch app on your phone, you can customize where all of your apps are on your home screen. You can also change your background into one of the Apple one’s, or you can choose your own image to put as your wallpaper. These are pretty much all of the main aspects of the Apple Watch.
To recap, the Apple Watch could be used as a replacement of a phone, yet you would be missing out on a whole lot of apps that you could get on your phone. It has a lot of great features, but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend you get one unless you really want one for working out, or think that you would need one for some other reason. I personally think that the Apple Watch is really helpful, and I use mine a lot.

Wish you well,
The Powerbeats Pro are an amazing set of earphones that I recommend to anybody. Beats is currently owned by Apple, so these are technically Apple headphones. As someone who has owned AirPods, I can confidently say that these are soooo much better than AirPods. AirPods always fall out of your ear, and honestly the sound quality isn’t anything too special. Here is what makes the Powerbeats Pro so great.
They have so many controls, that you can honestly almost control your music without even touching your phone. There is a round button on the side with a Beats logo on it, and that is how you control stuff. If you click it once, it pauses your music. If you click it twice, it will fast forward to the next song in your queue. You can also hold it down or say “Hey Siri” to activate Siri. Same with the AirPods, you can talk on the phone while using these, which makes them great for work.
If you are an active person, you will love these headphones. They fit in your ear amazing and come with three different tip sizes so that you can choose the one that fits you the best. Also, the tip of it wraps around the top of your ear so that it doesn’t fall out. This is amazing if you need headphones while you exercise, run, or do pretty much anything else.
The case that they come in is also really nice. It is a rounded cube (if that makes sense), and your headphones slide right into it and fit magnetically. There is a Bluetooth button on the inside that allows you to connect it to your device extremely easily. There is a little notch on the front that makes it super easy to open.
Over all, this is just an amazing set of headphones by Beats. I highly recommend them to anyone who is active, or just needs a reliable set of headphones. You can get a pair for yourself or a friend for $199 using this link. Thank you for reading, and we look forward to your feedback!
Have a great day,
The Apple Smart Keyboard Folio is a new keyboard that Apple has recently come out with for their new 2020 iPad Pro. The Smart Keyboard Folio is an update to the old Folio Keyboard that Apple had released last year. This keyboard does not require any charging or Bluetooth connection, instead, it immediately connects with your iPad once you put it in the case. One big change that they made to this keyboard is the viewing angles. With last year's model, the two viewing models include one tilted angle, and one almost straight up and down angle. This year’s iPad keeps the slightly tilted view, but instead of an almost vertical view, there is a more tilted view that could allow users to write on it with their Apple Pencil easier.
Another noticeable change is the material and overall feel of the case. The material this year is darker than last years, and the material is supposed to have a much better feel to it. One thing that I really like about it is that they actually added an Apple logo on the back of it, where last year’s model did not have that. Also, the camera hole allows for the new camera that the 2020 iPad Pro has instead of just the one camera that the 2018 version has. Other than the design to the case itself, there are not many big changes to this. You can get the new case at apple.com for $179 for the 11 inch version and $199 for the 12.9 inch version. If you get one of these, make sure to eMail or leave a comment telling us what you think.
Apple has released the 2020 MacBook Air, and a lot of people are going to like the changes that they made. One of the biggest changes that they made was the addition of the Magic Keyboard. All of the old MAcBooks Air’s featured a butterfly keyboard, which had .7mm of key travel. To a lot of people, this felt very mushy, and like they had to try really had to hit the keys. The new Magic Keyboard has only .3mm of key travel, so that users can feel like they are typing lighter, but still managing to get everything typed out that they want. This new keyboard is something that a lot of people have been looking forward to for a long time now.
Another addition to the 2020 version of the MacBook Air is the True Tone display, which changes the lighting on the screen to match the lighting around it. This is good for people who like to work at night because the screen will automatically adjust to be dimmer. This year’s keyboard also features a Touch ID scanner on the top right hand side, but this is nothing new. The MacBook Air still has it’s same nice, sleek design as it previously had, just with some more technology upgrades to go along with it this year.
I think that this could be a really good laptop for students. Apple added more storage to it, and took $100 dollars off the price from last year's model, so this could be a great opportunity for any student looking to either get their first MacBook, or just to upgrade it. You can get the new Space Gray 2020 MacBook Air using this link for $978.79, $21 dollars cheaper than at apple.com, or get the silver or gold colors using the same link for $999. If you get a new 2020 MacBook Pro, make sure to eMail us or leave a comment telling us what you think.
With MacOS Catalina came Sidecar. Sidecar is a feature that allow ssomeone to use their iPad as a second screen for their MacBook. In this article, I will tell you how you can do this and some ways to use it. This feature is wonderful for artists, students, and many, many more!
Unfortunately, sidecar does not work with every model of MacBook or iPad. It primairly works on MacBooks that are 2018 or older. If you have a MacBook that is older than that, it probably will not work. For iPads, you need to have one that is young enough to support Apple Pencil. That doesn’t neccessairly mean that you have to have a new iPad Pro with the second generation Apple Pencil, it will still work with an iPad that works with the first generation Apple Pencil.
To set this up, your iPad does not even need to be turned on. Go into your MacBook and hit the AirPlay button at the top. In case you don’t know, that icon looks like a TV with an arrow in the bottom of it. You click that, and there should be a button to connect it to your iPad. Click on that, and your computer screen should transfer onto you iPad. It automatically sets it up so it thinks yor iPad is on the right of your MacBook. Now, you can drag apps or tabs to the right, and it should appear on your iPad. Your cursor will be able to go between both of your screens.
As a student, I use this feature a lot to take notes. I will put my notes up on my iPad, and then type them on my MacBook. If you are an artist, you can draw on your iPad, and see it on your computer. This is an amazing feature for people who don’t have a monitor or a touch pad to draw on. Sidecar helps a lot of people in a lot of ways. This is personally one of my favorite ways that two Apple devices have worked together.
If you guys want some more visuals on how this is actually done, we will be releasing a YouTube video tomorrow going more in depth. We really hope that you guys enjoyed this post. Please leave a like or a comment to tell us what you think. Your feedback really means a lot to us!
