The MacBites Live Chatroom
The legendary MacBites Live chatroom is THE place to be when there’s an Apple announcement. You’ll find Elaine, Mike and The MacBiters enjoying the friendly, vibrant environment and chatting and debating about the latest news from Cupertino.
Come along and join in the fun. Whether you want to speak, text chat or simply sit back and listen, everyone’s welcome!
You’ll find details of all the MacBites Live events in The MacBites Live Calendar.
Want to relive some of the previous MacBites Live events? We’ve put together a collection of highlights from all the Apple events we’ve covered…
What The Actual? From the video at the beginning to the guy from Beats (was he included in the transfer fee?) to Drake (who?). This definitely rated amongst the worst Keynotes for many years. Even Hairforce One looked uncomfortable.
The thinnest ever MacBook was announced along with the most expensive watch ever but that didn’t deter the MacBiters gathered in the chatroom from having fun. If you missed it, the video is right here!
There was plenty for the MacBiters gathered in the MacBites Live chatrooom to get excited about – and we don’t just mean Craig (who appeared to have drunk a gallon-full of coffee or was high on a sugar rush!)
iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were announced along with the iWatch. However, all this was overshadowed by the Truck Event testcard, a Chinese simultaneous translation & the great U2 album-giveaway.
WWDC 2014 was where Apple introduced us to iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite and Craig Federighi, Apple’s Senior VP of Software Engineering delivered most of the main two hour presentation. Definitely one for the ladies!
Good news – finally a new version of iWork. Screams of delight from Elaine! Bad news – they’ve done a Final Cut and ripped bits out. Sounds of sobbing coming from MacBites HQ! Also announced were new iPads.
As well as launching the iPhone 5S, Apple also launched the 5C. Available in a multitude of bright colours (pink?) it also sported an illuminated backside (according to Phil anyway).
WWDC 2013 saw Apple unveil iOS 7, OS X Mavericks, iWork for iCloud, the Mac Pro (the one that looks like a shopping mall bin), new MacBook Airs and iBooks onOS X. Craig, Phil, Tim and Eddie were there and there were some games demos too!
They took the thinnest piece of aloominum (sic) and made the thinnest iMac. 80% thinner in fact (does that mean 80% cheaper?). The iPad Mini was also unveiled and the Mac Mini got an update too.
