Apple offers $50 credit if you paid full price for an iPhone battery replacement last year

Macworld - Wed, 05/23/2018 - 16:10

Late last year, Apple starting handing out $29 batteries to customers affected by unexpected shutdowns and slowdowns with their iPhone 6, 6s, and 7. That price represented a significant discount over the $79 Apple usually charges for a new battery, and customers predictably flocked to Apple stores to take advantage of the program.

But anyone who paid for a battery replacement before Dec. 29, 2017, was out of luck. While there were scattered reports of customers convincing Apple representatives to refund the money they paid for a replacement, there was no official way for customers to file for a refund, even if the battery replacement corrected the same issue covered by the new program.

"Whether Iranian forces or Hezbollah withdraw or stay in Syria is not up for discussion because it's the (business) of the Syrian government," Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said in an interview with Russia's Sputnik state news agency.

Razer Core X review: An inexpensive eGPU that turns your MacBook Pro into an iMac

Macworld - Wed, 05/23/2018 - 07:00

Were I pressed to name a brand that pairs well with Apple products, Razer would be one of the last names to pass my lips. Its designs—which tend to favor mutagen-green lines snaking though sturdy plates of black metal and plastic—look better suited to the Borg than to the drawing board of Jony Ive. It’s a favored brand of the kind of gamers who lurk in the PC Master Race subreddit and make acidic quips about Apple, and for that matter, it caters to folks in love with resource-demanding PC games that often never get ported to the Mac.

And yet, for all that, the new Core X external graphics processing unit finds Apple and Razer as strangely accommodating bedfellows. In fact, after spending some time with it over the past few days, I feel comfortable in saying it’s even a better enclosure than the Sonnet Breakaway Boxes that Apple itself recommends.
