Top Stories: iPhone 12 Rumors, Apple's A12Z-Based Mac mini, Leaked iMac, and More!

With WWDC now behind us, our attention this week largely turned back to rumors, led by increasing claims that Apple controversially won't be including a power adapter in the box with the iPhone 12. We also saw a few other iPhone 12 rumors, signs of an upcoming iMac update, and some more information on timing of updates for Apple's smaller iPads. The other big topic this week was Apple's Developer Transition Kit, a Mac mini equipped with the A12Z Bionic chip from the iPad Pro. App developers h...

Developers leak benchmarks from the Apple silicon Mac transition kit (ars technica)

Enlarge / Developers are wasting no time getting their hands dirty with the new A12Z ARM Developer Transition Kits. (credit: Axel Roest) As reported by MacRumors, eager Apple developers are already posting benchmarks on the developer transition kits for Macs with Apple silicon. These kits are based on the Mac mini chassis but include ARM-derived Apple silicon rather than Intel CPUs. Before we dig in, it's important to note a few caveats. First, the CPU included in these developer kits may or m...

First Apple Silicon Benchmarks Destroy Surface Pro X

As expected, developers with early access to Apple silicon-based transition kits have leaked some early benchmarks scores. And it's bad news for Surface Pro X and Windows 10 on ARM fans. Thurrott reports: According to multiple Geekbench scores, the Apple Developer Transition Kit -- a Mac Mini-like device with an Apple A12Z system-on-a-chip (SoC), 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB of SSD storage -- delivers an average single-core score of 811 and an average multi-core score of 2871. Those scores represent...

Rosetta 2 Benchmarks Surface From Mac Mini With A12Z Chip

While the terms and conditions for Apple's new "Developer Transition Kit" forbid developers from running benchmarks on the modified Mac mini with an A12Z chip, it appears that results are beginning to surface anyhow. Image Credit: Radek Pietruszewski Geekbench results uploaded so far suggest that the A12Z-based Mac mini has average single-core and multi-core scores of 811 and 2,781 respectively. Keep in mind that Geekbench is running through Apple's translation layer Rosetta 2, so an impact ...

Rosetta 2 is Apple's Key To Making the ARM Transition Less Painful

At WWDC 2020 earlier this week, Apple announced that it's moving Macs away from Intel processors to its own silicon, based on ARM architecture. To help ease the transition, the company announced Rosetta 2, a translation process that allows users to run apps that contain x86_64 instructions on Apple silicon. The Verge reports: Rosetta 2 essentially "translates" instructions that were written for Intel processors into commands that Apple's chips can understand. Developers won't need to make any ch...

Apple just announced its big plan to create its own Mac chips, signaling a radical new direction for the company's computers. Here's everything we know about it so far. (AAPL)

Apple recently unveiled its plan to create its own custom chips for Mac computers moving forward, a move that will give it greater control over the performance and features of future Macs. The switch will make it possible for iPhone and iPad apps to run natively on the Mac, and Apple is launching tools for developers to help them port over their existing Mac apps. But there are still a lot of unanswered questions around how the performance on these new machines will hold up compared to Intel-p...

Rosetta Won't Support x86 Virtualization Apps Running Windows

Apple yesterday announced plans build future to Macs with its own custom silicon chips, and to ease the transition away from Intel processors, Apple revived the "Rosetta" feature that allowed PowerPC apps to run on Intel processors during the PowerPC to Intel transition. Now revived, Rosetta will allow users to run apps that contain x86_64 instructions on Apple silicon, which means Intel-based apps will continue to work on Macs using custom Apple chips. Rosetta is meant to provide developers...

Apple Filed for 'Apple Rosetta' Trademark in Japan Earlier This Year

As noted in, on April 30th of this year, Apple applied for a trademark for the term "Apple Rosetta" in Japan. The original Rosetta software from 2005 Rosetta was the name for Apple's emulation software that allowed PowerPC apps to run under Intel processors. Apple introduced Rosetta in MacOS X 10.4 (Tiger) to provide a compatibility layer for Mac users while the company transitioned from PowerPC processors to Intel processors. As a result, Apple has already had the trademark fo...

Little Richard Burst Into the “Then-Macho World of Rock” and “Changed it Forever”

If Sister Rosetta Tharpe was the Godmother of Rock and Roll, then Little Richard, who passed away Saturday at the age of 87 from bone cancer, deserves to be its Godfather. This is no empty honorific, despite the fact that Tharpe was already touring the country as a teenage gospel prodigy in 1932 when Richard Penniman was born in Macon Georgia, and "other musicians,” including Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Bo Diddley, and Elvis Presley, “had already been mining a similar vein by the time [Lit...

Is Pluto Actually a Mash-Up of a Billion Comets?

Scientists from the Southwest Research Institute suggest Pluto may be a comet, as opposed to a planet or dwarf planet. According to a study published in the journal Icarus, Pluto could be made up of billions of comets all mashed together. Smithsonian reports: Scientists had long believed the dwarf planet Pluto was formed the way planets come to be: they start as swirling dust that's gradually pulled together by gravity. But with the realization that Pluto was a Kuiper belt dwarf planet, research...

Report: Apple Planning To Dump Intel Chips in Macs

Apple is reportedly planning to drop Intel chips from its Mac computers as early as 2020, replacing them with processors designed in-house in the same way the company manufactures iPhones and iPads. The plan, reported by Bloomberg, has been rumored for several years, as Apple has taken on more chip design for devices. The company's A-series of processors, currently capped by the A11 Bionic chips used in the iPhones 8, 8 Plus and X, are all designed by the company for specific purposes, and base...
