    Apple intros 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros with display notches, M1 Pro and M1 Max / ArsTechnica · Monday, 18 October - 17:33 · 1 minute

Nearly a year after announcing the first, low-end M1 Macs last November, Apple has finally unveiled its higher-end Macs. New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will include the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, faster successors that build upon the foundation of the original M1, as well as more ports, and a slight redesign. This marks the most significant change to the MacBook Pro since the Touch Bar was introduced back in 2016.

The MacBook Pros are powered by two new Apple Silicon chips, the M1 Pro and the M1 Max—each are huge steps up from the M1 in terms of both CPU and GPU performance. The M1 Pro has a total of 10 processor cores—8 high-performance cores and 2 low-power efficiency cores, compared to four performance cores and four efficiency cores for the M1. The M1 Pro further improves graphics performance by including 16 GPU cores, twice as many as the 8-core GPU version of the M1. The chip also has a 256-bit memory interface, twice as fast as the M1's memory interface, and supports up to 32 GB of RAM, twice as much as the M1's 16 GB cap.

The M1 Max boosts things even further, with a 512-bit memory interface, up to 64 GB of RAM, and 32 GPU cores. Memory bandwidth is typically the biggest single bottleneck for integrated GPUs, and Apple's focus on a super-wide memory controller and a single pool of RAM that both the CPU and GPU can draw from will allegedly help the M1 Max's GPU compete with discrete laptop GPUs while using 40% less power.

Diving deep into Briar (and Monal)

We are very happy to have Nico Alt from The Briar Project with us, who will give a talk Diving deep into Briar: a closer look at its internals If everything works well, the talk will be streamed over Briar is a secure messaging technology based on peer-to-peer communications with no centralized servers.

Also we will welcome a special guest, Thilo Molitor‎ from Monal, who will explain how Monal works and can answer questions. Monal is a "fast, friendly and free" Jabber/XMPP client for iOS and MacOS.

When? Wednesday, 2021-10-13 18:00 CEST (always 2ⁿᵈ Wednesday of every month)

    The MacBook Pro will soon get a resolution bump, macOS beta suggests / ArsTechnica · Friday, 24 September - 19:18

The seventh beta of macOS Monterey contains what appear to be references to new screen resolutions suitable for the MacBook Pro line, as discovered by MacRumors .

In a list of supported graphics resolutions within macOS, there are two new resolutions: 3,456 by 2,234 and 3,024 by 1,964. Each carries a "Retina" marker, which Apple typically only applies to its own devices' screens.

The aspect ratio for these new resolutions is very close to the current aspect ratios on the MacBook Pro computers sold today, but they're lower than what we currently see in the iMac line, suggesting that they aren't for Apple's desktops. Further, the numbers fit nicely with a move to true 2x Retina, as opposed to the scaling approach presently used for Retina displays.

    Apple rolls major Safari redesign out to Macs ahead of Monterey release / ArsTechnica · Wednesday, 22 September - 19:22

This week, Apple released Safari 15 for macOS Big Sur and Catalina. Among other things, the new update includes a major design overhaul—plus the ability to roll back to the old layout and look if you're not a fan.

Apple released major software updates for all of its platforms except macOS on Monday. The updates were timed closely with the release of new iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch models.

But last week's product launch event didn't include Macs, which are expected to get some more focused attention by the end of the year, alongside an announcement about the release date of macOS Monterey.

    Unpatched macOS vulnerability lets remote attackers execute code / ArsTechnica · Wednesday, 22 September - 12:27

Unpatched macOS vulnerability lets remote attackers execute code

A code execution bug in Apple's macOS allows remote attackers to run arbitrary commands on your device. And the worst part is, Apple hasn't fully patched it yet, as tested by Ars.

Those shortcut files can take over your Mac

Independent security researcher Park Minchan has discovered a vulnerability in the macOS that lets threat actors execute commands on your computer. Shortcut files that have the inetloc extension are capable of embedding commands inside. The flaw impacts macOS Big Sur and prior versions.

"A vulnerability in the way macOS processes inetloc files causes it to run commands embedded inside, the commands it runs can be local to the macOS allowing the execution of arbitrary commands by the user without any warning / prompts," explains Minchan. "Originally, inetloc files are shortcuts to an Internet location, such as an RSS feed or a telnet location; and contain the server address and possibly a username and password for SSH and telnet connections; can be created by typing a URL in a text editor and dragging the text to the Desktop."

    Apple fixes security vulnerabilities in new versions of iOS, macOS, and watchOS / ArsTechnica · Monday, 13 September - 20:24

Today, Apple released new versions of its iOS and iPadOS 14 , macOS Big Sur , and watchOS 7 operating systems. The updates hit just one day before Apple is expected to reveal its new iPhone and Apple Watch models and the release dates for iOS 15 and watchOS 8.

These updates are security-related across the board, and they add no new features or functionality.

Specifically, two main issues have been addressed across Apple's platforms, one with Core Graphics and the other with WebKit. In both cases, maliciously crafted content (PDFs or web content) could be used in arbitrary code execution. Apple also says these updates fix an issue that allowed attackers to bypass Apple protections intended to stop code execution via Messages.
