Two MacBook Pro models getting mini LED in 2021, MacBook Air in 2022 says Kuo

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that as part of Apple’s mini LED push, the company will release a pair of new MacBook Pro models in 2021 with the technology — and a “more affordable” MacBook Air in 2022.

In a note to investors, seen by AppleInsider, Ming-Chi Kuo is refining his predictions for Apple’s use of mini LED technology in the Mac. Specifically, he predicts that the long-rumored 14-inch MacBook Pro with a redesigned chassis will arrive in 2021 alongside another model. Perhaps more notably, Kuo is also expecting a new and “more affordable” MacBook Air in 2022 — but he didn’t comment on the possibility of an enclosure redesign of that model.

Mini LED is, as the name suggests, a very small LED component. While current LEDs are used for backlighting systems, they typically rely on a small number of LEDs lighting up a larger area. Mini LED

M1 Mac mini catapulted Apple to number one in Japanese desktop PC market

The new M1-equipped Mac mini has propelled Apple to the number one spot in the Japanese desktop PC market in the two weeks after the device’s launch.

That’s according to new data from Japanese analysis firm BCN Retail, which aggregated the sales data of mass retailers and online stores in the country. In the period between August 1 and November 3, Apple held a 15% share of the desktop PC market in Japan and was fighting for third place with Lenovo.

With the launch of the first Apple Silicon Mac mini on November 17, BCN Retail tracked a surge in Apple computer sales that resulted in the Cupertino tech giant taking the number one spot by sales volume. BCN Retail reports that Apple now has 27.1% of the market, increasing 14.4% percentage points in a single week.

Apple’s Mac lineup has had one of the best years in some time

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

Cyber Monday is almost upon us. If you’re still bargain hunting after Black Friday, you have another day or two to capitalize on the many deals still available. You’ll find discounts between now and Christmas, but this is the height of the shopping season.

It’s little surprise that Walmart’s Black Friday sale is still going strong through the weekend. Yes, the XboxPS5AirPods Pro and Apple Watch Series 3 all quickly sold out, but you can still get in on some great deals. Similarly, while the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart bundle has been impossible to get hold of this shopping season, it was in stock early this morning at Walmart. While it promptly sold out, we’re hoping

The best mini gaming PC: the top small PC builds in 2020

The best mini PC for gaming might be an Xbox One S-sized rig containing one of the best graphics cards around, or it might be more of a budget compact PC that provides excellent value for money. There are a range of small form-factor components to choose from, including some from Intel, AMD, and Nvidia, which means creating a great mini gaming PC rig capable of getting you up and running in Minecraft or Call of Duty: Warzone isn’t too difficult these days.

The classic image of a gaming PC is some hulking behemoth of a machine, all frantically spinning fans, blazing rainbow RGB LEDs, and monstrously large graphics cards. But that doesn’t have to be the case anymore with a great small gaming PC – you don’t have to make massive compromises on performance just to lessen your PC’s overall footprint. There are small form factor cases which can

Flash deals: save $250 on Apple’s Intel Core i7 Mac mini

There isn’t a better time to pick up an Intel Mac mini, with $250 knocked off two Core i7 models of the pint-sized Mac for 24 hours only ahead of the holidays.

Intel Mac mini deal

While the M1-equipped Mac mini is getting all of the attention, there are still good reasons to acquire the Intel-based models. At this early stage in the processor transition, sticking with Intel will ensure you will immediately be able to run the apps you want, without worrying if it will be affected by Rosetta 2 translation or won’t be ported over by the developer at all.

There’s also a few other benefits, such as being able to run Windows straight away, or having the option to run three monitors from the Mac mini, instead of just two on the M1 version (without the use of special adapters).

Apple’s new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac mini with M1 are at their lowest prices yet for Black Friday

Apple’s brand-new computers based on its own custom M1 chip have both been getting sterling reviews due to their great performance and better life. (Well, almost sterling reviews; The Verge’s Nilay Patel is not a fan of the Touch Bar that still adorns the MacBook Pro, and according to reviewer Chris Welch, the Mac mini has a truly awful speaker. But aside from that…)

Normally, brand-new Apple computers would not be on sale, even during Black Friday. But the M1-powered MacBook Pro 13 has already had a $50-off sale at Amazon, and today Adorama and B&H are discounting the Mac mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro with M1 chips.

For the MacBook Air, both B&H and Adorama are taking $100 off of both the base configuration and the upgraded model with 512GB of storage. It’s the lowest price we’ve seen the new M1-powered Air sell for yet.

Apple enlists influencers to promote iPhone 12 mini on TikTok

Apple is now using its previously dormant TikTok account and recruiting popular influencers on the platform to promote the iPhone 12 mini.

The new marketing campaign comes about seven months after Apple first established its verified account in April. Until now, the TikTok account has remained unused.

In November, Apple published four video clips featuring TikTok influencers Jessica Wang, Kevin B Parry, Zach King, and Julian Bass.

Each clip features the influencers making various items shrink to a more compact size, including jackets and cupcakes. They all end with the iPhone 12 being shrunk down to an iPhone 12 mini. The TikTok videos also challenge viewers to “make it mini,” with a new hashtag for the proposed trend.

The campaign seems to have boosted Apple’s profile on the platform, since the company now has around 378,000 followers and 350,000 thousand likes as of writing.

TikTok has been the subject of

M1 MacBook Pro, HomePod mini, and macOS Big Sur on the AppleInsider podcast

We review the new Apple Silicon M1 13-inch MacBook Pro, discuss the new HomePod mini, review the many design changes in macOS Big Sur, and cover Apple’s new small business program.

There are some app compatibility issues that may causes issues for early adopters, but we take a deep dive into the specific benefits of M1 over previous Intel-based Macs. You already know these new Macs are fast, and have long battery life, but here’s what that really means — and how it really feels — in regular day to day use.

Then the new HomePod mini landed in stores this week and we try out its sound quality and HomeKit hub features. While it doesn’t have the same sound stage or volume as the larger HomePod, the new U1 chip inside the HomePod mini does make a big difference when it comes to handing off audio from an iPhone.
