Apple's tap-and-go Express payments come to London public transport

  Apple's tap-and-go Express payments come to London public transport Paying for daily necessities using your phone might feel like the future, but the reality can sometimes be slower as mobile payments require authentication that can take time to approve. To combat this issue, Apple has brought its Express feature to London, making it far quicker and easier to use Apple Pay on services like the Tube. Apple's Express Mode can now be used on all Transport for London (TfL) services, including buses, trams and the underground system. Users only need to tap their phone or Apple Watch against the yellow card reader to pay for their journey.

Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro was a return to form for the company, especially when it came to portable power. (We did call it the "ultimate MacBook," after all.) Now, Apple might be developing another way to speed up its notebooks: a new "Pro Mode" that users can manually turn on and off. As 9to5Mac reports, the new mode is referenced in the Catalina 10.15.3 beta build, though it doesn't appear as a working feature just yet.

A key text string from the beta describes it succinctly: "Apps may run faster, but battery life may decrease and fan noise may increase." Other strings note that turning on the feature will override fan speed limits, and that it'll be automatically reset the following day (which is also how the macOS Do Not Disturb mode works). There's plenty left up in the air about Pro Mode, but the feature isn't exactly surprising, considering that it's basically a requirement for gaming PCs, where users can max out their fan and cooling settings. In many cases, the extra noise is worth the extra power.

Apple loses bid to stop class action lawsuit over MacBook keyboards

  Apple loses bid to stop class action lawsuit over MacBook keyboards Apple will have to face a class action lawsuit over faulty MacBook keyboards. Federal Judge Edward Davila has tossed out Apple's attempt to dismiss a suit accusing the company of not only hiding the fragility of MacBook butterfly keyboards, but of failing to provide an "effective fix" or full compensation for customers who paid for repairs. The suit claims that Apple violated multiple states' consumer protection laws, potentially leaving the company on the hook for many users who dealt with sticky or unresponsive keys when even a slight amount of debris slipped into their keyboards.

Another message says “Fan speed limit overridden”, which makes it pretty clear that the feature will allow the fan speeds to go beyond the The image further shows that the fan speed will be reset the day after Pro Mode is enabled. It also seems like it might be exclusive to devices that make use of the new thermal design, which Apple debuted in the 16-inch MacBook Pro last year.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro sports a significantly better cooling system than previous models, something that Pro Mode might be able to push even further. And if I had to wager, I'd bet that the next generation of MacBooks (which appear to be coming soon) will share that fan design. It'd be nice to see Pro Mode show up on older MacBooks too, but they may be limited by their less efficient fans.

Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro gets a $300 price drop at Amazon .
Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro is barely a few months old, but there are already good deals to be had if you're willing to be patient. Amazon is selling the base configuration of Apple's latest laptop for $2,099, a full $300 off its usual sticker price and a new low at the retailer. That's a significant deal for a system that represents a marked improvement over recent MacBooks (particularly the keyboard) and a good laptop overall with brisk performance, a great display and better sound than you'd expect from a portable. The 2.6GHz Core i7, 16GB of RAM, Radeon Pro 5300M graphics and 512GB SSD should be up to most tasks without flinching.
