Apple outs its thin and sexy new MacBook, and all the other Apple related news you’ve missed

It’s the ultimate Apple news round-up

The hype surrounding MWC 2015 died down fast and it wasn’t too long before Apple took over the headlines once more.

The past few days have been all about Apple’s latest announcements, in addition to rumours about its upcoming products. Here’s what you might have missed.

The new MacBook is one special laptop

Apple’s making bold moves. Its latest revolves around a reinvented MacBook. 24 per cent thinner than the existing MacBook Air, this laptop is way more than what we expected it to be. And it now comes in silver, gold, and space grey colour options so if you own the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you can get one to match. Oh, and not forgetting that one and only USB-C port. Trust us, you'll need the adapter.

The unofficial iPhone 6S might be waterproof and more powerful

Rumours out of the Apple mill suggest that the purported iPhone 6S could boast two important features – twice the RAM of the iPhone 5, 5S, and 6 and a waterproof body. This isn’t the first time such rumours have been making their way around the tech space, so we’ll just have to wait and see if they do end up on the next Apple smartphone.

The wait for the Apple Watch gets even longer

If you’re in Singapore or Malaysia, we have some bad news for you – you aren’t in the first list of countries that will be getting the Apple Watch. Only nine countries will carry the first wave, namely the US, Canada, Australia, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Britain, Germany, and France. Yes, that means your wait just got longer.

Apple’s ResearchKit might just change the way we live

Apple seems to have a solution for everything, and ResearchKit is Apple’s answer to dilemmas that many medical researchers face – locating people for studies. So what ResearchKit does is let these people use their iPhones to participate then measure the readings without the need for any additional equipment.

This third-party accessory addresses Apple Watch’s battery issue

The Apple Watch might be made available in Singapore and Malaysia later than we expected, but with awesome third-party accessories, it would be worth the wait. Named Reserve Strap, this outstanding accessory promises to extend the battery life of your Apple Watch. However, it’s currently only in its development stage.
