5 Upgrades to the Mac Book Pro


Whether you’re shopping for a new MacBook Pro or just wondering how it stacks up against its competitors, there are a few things to consider. The first thing you should look for is the screen size. You can find MacBook Pros with screens of up to 16 inches, and if you’re looking for more space, you can get a model with a larger screen.

16-inch screen

Whether you’re a developer or a creative, the new 16-inch screen on the MacBook Pro is a great choice. Compared to its predecessor, this new model boasts a better display and more powerful processors. It is also one of the most powerful portable Macs available today.

The new MacBook Pro also features an improved cooling solution. The new design is thinner and has a larger chassis with better airflow. This means the battery will last longer. It also adds more input/output ports and supports UHS-II. You can also get fast charging. The MagSafe connector, for example, charges 50% in about half an hour.

SDXC card slot

Whether you’re looking for more storage space on your Mac or just want to share some files, the SDXC card slot on your Mac Book Pro is a great way to get a little extra storage. These cards are smaller and can be more convenient than larger external storage options, but they’re not as durable. Fortunately, the MacBook Pro comes with a built-in SD card reader so you can insert compatible SD cards to add up to 2TB of storage.

If you’re looking for a card with fast transfer rates, you may want to consider a Class 10 SDHC or SDXC card. These cards use the latest intelligent flash memory chips to achieve peak transfer rates of 100MB/Sec. They’re great for fast transfers of large video files and Mac OSX diagnostics.

HDMI 2.0 port

Using HDMI is more than just connecting your laptop to a television or monitor. It also provides video and audio on a single cable.

The MacBook Pro’s HDMI port isn’t the most sophisticated or feature-rich, however. The port isn’t even the newest in the MacBook line.

The standard HDMI 2.0 port is a bit older than the new HDMI 2.1 standard, but it’s still better than nothing. Compared to the previous standard, HDMI 2.1 is more powerful and supports 4K and 8K video at 120Hz. This is especially useful for gaming, where an 8K resolution is required to play the latest game titles.

3.5mm headphone jack

Among the new Macbook Pro’s upgrades, the headphone jack gets a nice makeover. It’s now capable of delivering three volts RMS, and it can adapt to high-impedance or low-impedance headphones.

Apple has also boosted its audio game with a studio-quality three-microphone array. It has a built-in digital-to-analog converter, and it detects the impedance of the device being connected. Adaptive voltage output works with low-impedance, high-impedance, and line-level audio devices.

It’s also got a DC load detection feature. This is an important feature when powering up your MacBook Pro because the battery is usually low when you first boot up.

MagSafe 3 port

Several years ago, Apple introduced MagSafe, a proprietary magnetically attached power plug. It was designed to prevent laptops from tumbling over the power cord. Similarly, it provided a quick-release mechanism when the cable was tripped. It was also prone to fraying, which made it more expensive to replace. Eventually, Apple phased out MagSafe across all of its product lines in favor of USB-C.

Today, MagSafe is back, and Apple has redesigned the plug to provide more power than before. It can charge MacBook Pros from zero to 50 percent in 30 minutes.

The new MagSafe 3 plug is thinner and wider than the previous generation. The new cable is also covered in a woven material to provide long-term durability. It also features a rectangular metal shroud around the pins, which acts as a ferrous attractor for the laptop magnet.

Touch ID button

Using the Touch ID button on your MacBook Pro is a convenient way to use your computer. With Touch ID, you can unlock your computer without having to type in a password. It also allows you to make purchases in the App Store and Apple digital media stores.

You can also use the Touch ID to change user accounts on your MacBook. This is useful when you are using your computer with multiple accounts. Using the Touch ID allows you to switch between accounts by simply placing your finger on the sensor.

You can also configure Touch ID to be used for Apple Pay. This will allow you to make purchases using your MacBook Pro without having to type in a password.
