Great. The mfi thing seemed dumb as hell to me. Really coming around to this iPad Air I spent a large amount of this months salary on. Battery life is insane. Using it all day at work to study ccna ebooks - 7 and a half hours screen on time with 47% left.

Product recall:

Apple is recalling some of its 15in MacBook Pro laptops over a battery fire risk.

The company said on Thursday that a limited number of its largest laptop line, sold between September 2015 and February 2017, contained batteries that “may overheat and pose a safety risk”.

Apple asked customers with MacBook Pro (Retina, 15in, Mid 2015) laptops to stop using the machines immediately and to seek to have the battery replaced as soon as possible, which would be done free as part of the recall. It said the service may take one to two weeks.

The company said anyone with the model, which cost upwards of £1,599, should cross-check the serial number of the machine on the Apple recall site. The serial number could be found by clicking on the Apple menu in the top left corner of the screen and choosing “About this Mac”.

“Customer safety is always Apple’s top priority, and we have voluntarily decided to replace affected batteries, free of charge,” Apple said in a statement. ... -fire-risk

Sir Jony Ive, the Briton who over two decades helped turn Apple into the world's most valuable company, is leaving to set up his own venture.

Mr Ive, designer of the Mac, iPod and iPhone, leaves later this year to start a creative business called LoveFrom, with Apple as its first client.

He said: "This just seems like a natural and gentle time to make this change."

Apple boss Tim Cook said he looked forward to continuing to work with him

Ive had enough.

I’d leave too if I was responsible for this years upcoming design.

More Apple related problems, this one with the new MacBook Air (again):

Apple finds issue w/ logic board in some 2018 MacBook Airs, offers free repair

Apple has confirmed in an internal document to repair staff that it’s identified an issue with the main logic board in what it says is a “very small number” of MacBook Air models. Apple Stores and authorized repair staff have been informed to replace the main logic board in affected machines at no cost to customers, according to the document obtained by 9to5Mac

Apple’s memo to repair staff notes that it has identified “an issue” with the main logic board specifically in Retina, 13-inch, 2018 MacBook Air models with certain serial numbers. Apple will be emailing customers with machines with the serial numbers they’ve identified as being affected, otherwise customers can take their machine to Apple Stores or authorized repair staff to have their devices checked out.

Apple’s documents list symptoms as issues with “power,” but do not elaborate on what problems users are experiencing exactly. A quick search online for problems with the 2018 MacBook Air logic board shows reports back to when the device first launched with some users’ machines not able to power on at all.

Apple has not yet publicly announced the program or listed it on its “Exchange and Repair Extension Programs” webpage where it lists recall and service programs. In some cases Apple doesn’t list programs that only affect a small number of devices, but it’s not clear what criteria it uses to decide to publicly announce a repair or recall program.

For affected machines, Apple will offer the program for four years from the original purchase date. Users that think they might be experiencing the issue can take their MacBook Air to Apple Stores or an Apple authorized service provider.. ... wer-apple/

If the keyboard doesn’t get you, maybe this fault will.

Here’s hoping for some descent improvements for the upgraded Air rumoured to be coming in a few months (said to be completely new keyboard, faster processor, better graphics).
