Running a Mac as a server supports all the features of HFS+ and APFS, services such as Content Caching, and spares us from learning Linux. But does it work?
Is the next Apple Event in October, for the release of Ventura, and maybe more Apple silicon Macs? What’s going to be missing from macOS 13, and what happens to Catalina now?
Progress benchmarking performance of internal SSDs in M1 Macs: tests of 400 files totalling over 130 GB written and read in less than 50 seconds. And results.
A new version of Stibium which performs series tests raises further questions about benchmarking SSDs on Intel and M1 Macs. And is an X5 worth the extra cost?
A new version using Mach absolute time brings accuracy to a few microseconds, and a Help page. Tests progress well, and continue to make interesting comparisons.
Developing an app to assess the real-world performance of SSDs: initial results from a T2 Mac and an M1 Mac mini are different but there’s no simple answer to which is the faster.
Time has changed in M1 Macs, with the Mach clock ticking every 41.67 nanoseconds. This affects all log entries too, and works differently in Rosetta.
First update it to 11.0.1. Here are details of the problems which can arise and how to solve them, from unenrolling from betas to using Configurator to Revive an M1 Mac.
Why do Macs with T2 chips show a black screen when starting up or updating their firmware, and why so long that it’s scary?
Seen the reports that Apple Support recommends not installing 10.15 on new Mac minis? Well, they’re just another fake.
