The news, reported by 9to5Mac, is a surprising change to the previous system. Until now Apple has been happy to provide financing to iPhone buyers who wish to “Connect to a carrier later,” which opens up the possibility of using any number of carriers or even using the device without a cellular connection, as long as they make the purchase online. (In-store ACMI purchases were already limited to carrier-connected iPhones.) The new…
Macworld For various reasons, it’s long been useful for Apple to be able to say that its Mac Pro is made in the US. The rest of the company’s hardware manufacturing might be outsourced to a complex southeast Asian supply chain, but it can at least mollify jobs-obsessed nationalist politicians by pointing to the Texas facility where the top-end Mac is put together. Contrary to what those politicians might wish us to believe, that facility has been open since 2013, and the company’s announcement that the 2019 model would be made there emphasized that this was merely a continuation of a long-running policy. The 2023 Mac Pro, unveiled earlier this month, continues this tradition as well. But something has changed.…

Macworld Mac fans have a lot of reasons to be excited about the M3 chip, which will reportedly bring a better speed boost and longer battery life compared to the M2. But according to a new report, we’re going to have to wait a little bit longer to see what the new chip can do. According to Revegnus (@Tech_Reve) on Twitter, the M3 chip destined for the iPad Pro and next-generation Macs, won’t arrive until next year. Apparently, TSMC, which manufactures the chips, is currently unable to meet Apple’s demand “due to yield issues.” Update: No M3 Mac or iPad for this yearDue to yield issues with TSMC not being able to supply enough of the M3 to Apple, Apple…
