MacLab has moved to a new office suite. We’re in the same building but have moved to Suite 501. Come on by!
On September 20th, Apple released MacOS 10.12, “Sierra.” This upgrade brings Siri’s voice recognition to the Mac, integrates further with iCloud and has a number of additional enhancements. We would like to stress caution before upgrading too soon. Your Mac should be checked for incompatible applications, data backed up and the health of the disk directory verified. Any upgrade can fail, rendering a computer unusable. Please check in with us for our recommendation. To be safe, have MacLab preflight your Mac and install the upgrade.
We get a number of customers that come in to MacLab with permanent damage to laptops due to spills. Apple doesn’t cover liquid damage under warranty or even under Applecare. Laptops can be protected from splashes and small spills by a good keyboard cover. KB Covers are thin and difficult to detect they’re even present. A keyboard cover could save you thousands. These covers also protect against wear and tear. Ask us for one for you MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air.
Get a free KB Cover with any new Mac laptop you purchase through Maclab with configuration/installation until September 30.
Apple has discontinued their Thunderbolt Display and has not committed to a replacement. If you’re looking for a great Thunderbolt display for your Mac, a 4K, 5K display, or even a second display, we can help. There are plenty of options. As consultants, and as authorized dealers of just about any display manufacturer, we can select and install the right one for you and your environment.
Apple’s wireless input devices are now in their second generation—Magic Mouse 2, Magic Trackpad 2 and the Magic Keyboard. The primary change to all of these is the ability to recharge the batteries by plugging in a supplied cable. Gone is the need to swap batteries and you won’t be bothered by the back panel of the mouse falling off. These new goodies require Apple’s Mac OS 10.11 El Capitan to function correctly.
