Forbes: MacBook Pro Experiences Perfect but Parameters Backwards

Forbes: MacBook Pro experiences perfect but parameters backwards

MacBook is an amazing product line that may has a little bit color of legend, its products once had individual personalities, but in the past few years it has become less magical, but instead turned to a loyal mass market. So how should we judge this product? Today, the foreign media Forbes gave their opinion, let’s take a look on how it said about MacBook Pro.
Forbes: MacBook Pro experiences perfect but parameters backwards

Ewan Spence, an editor from Forbes Magazine has released an article, saying that he summed up a few good parts of the MacBook Pro and some of the bad ones. Let’s take a look.

Three Controversial events He Said

The first thing he said about is the keyboard, Spence thinks the keyboard of MacBook Pro is still a lot of controversy, due to the brand new design that Apple has taken on it. Let’s see what ha have said:

The keyboard remains a huge point of contention. Apple moved to a new design across its range, and the ‘Butterfly 2’ system is certainly lighter and thinner than previous generations. It has also proved to be relatively fragile compared to previous generations with trapped dust causing some eyebrow-raising suggestions for user fixes.

The second point to be critical by users is USB-C, Spence thinks this portable is “the lack of ports is dramatic,” and he also stresses Apple has decided to move forward with a world full of USB-C interfaces, and he believes the world will follow suit as long as the MacBook is equipped with USB-C interface.


In addition, Spence seems not to be much supported integrates the power function of the USB-C, he writes “The protection of MagSafe, which would see your power cord detach from the MacBook rather than pull it to the floor if the cable was snagged – will no doubt cause more impact damage and repairs in the macOS community.”

Last but not least, Spence does not agree with Apple putting iOS first in terms of development and new features in macOS, in the past few years, Apple has claimed that they put iOS in the first place to develop, any new feature that appears on the macOS will always be tightly integrated with iCloud and iOS, and there is even news that Apple will be running its iOS App on macOS in 2018.

Anything that increases the value of the Mac platform appearing now is invariably something that ties it closer to iCloud and interfaces with an existing feature on your iPhone or iPod. Even areas such as the Touch Bar and TouchID to unlock the Mac were developed and distributed outside of the desk-bound machines.

All those actions and facts showing either macOS or Mac is no longer the focus of Apple, as to whether this is a good thing, it may take time to prove it.

Like Spence says, MacOS and Mac are no longer priority.

Apple Decide Slow Down the Development Progress of macOS to Ensure Software Quality

Apple Decide Slow Down the Development Progress

Lately, Apple’s reported plans to delay some features for iOS 12 until next year in 2019, in order ensure that high stability and performance of the system available for every, the decision is similarly extending to the Mac, with the seam situation, macOS will follow the same approach this year.

Apple Decide Slow Down the Development Progress

According to Mark Gurman, reporting for Bloomberg News, Apple’s software engineering chief Craig Federighi disclosed the revised plans during a meeting with employees earlier this month. While Craig determining the iOS development effort, he is also certain that the new functionality deferred plan is also extending to macOS, but it reportedly will not affect the development cycles of watchOS or tvOS.

In the past, Apple is always focus on the quality of its current software, such as bug fixes, performance improvements, and the general stability of its operating systems.

The company told its software engineering groups about the change this month, one of the people said. The shift will also affect this year’s update to Mac computer software, but to a lesser degree, the person said, adding that planned upgrades to Apple Watch and Apple TV software won’t be affected.

Actually, in the past for a long time, the secure bug exposed in macOS is not less than in iOS, for example, a month ago, a major security vulnerability that enabled access to the root superuser account with a blank password on macOS High Sierra version 10.13.1. Apple promptly fixed the critical bug in a security update. Just weeks later,other security flaw in macOS High Sierra version 10.13.2 that allowed the App Store menu in System Preferences to be unlocked with any password.

However, in the last few weeks, Mac users came through other flaw “chaiOS”, when click on the link results in a system crash. There are multiple bugs in a short period of time, and all of them are errors that lead to serious consequences, which obviously shouldn’t happen. It is worth mentioning that this is not the first time that Apple has delayed the launch of new features for stability. In 2015, iOS 9 encountered a similar problem, when Apple also delayed the development schedule.

How about this delay will work, just wait and see.
