    Hi folks, I'm so excited I received my 12 pro max in gold today. Been setting it up and playing with it all day. That is until later I decided to charge the phone, the device heats up really bad. Is this normal? What's going on? I'm using the little cord with the 20 watt charging brick. Help!

    Sidecar causing 2020 13' Pro to overheat

    Hi, I used my base 2020 13' Pro this afternoon with Sidecar, and after just 10 minutes roughly, the MacBook was extremely hot. This seems ridiculous when I was only using it as a second screen for Spotify. Is this an issue with Catalina, Sidecar or the MacBook? Anyone else experienced this?

    A1398 2015 - wearisome fan whine

    I've got A1398 2015 (2.8, R9 370X, High Sierra) which I was dreaming of for years! I bought it for silence as Apple values it much - and got something pretty different. First of all - paste is fresh (MX-4), fans are clean, SMC and NVRAM are reset. I undervolted with Volta (-60mv), turned off...

It needs a new HD for sure (very crunchy sounding), which I'll be installing sometime this week. I've noticed though...

    Hi all, I recently (against my better judgement) updated my early 2015 13" rMBP from OS X 10.11 El Capitan to macOS 10.15.4 Catalina. Since then, I have been struggling against complete system shutdowns. Irregularly, but often immediately after powering on, the whole system locks down and...
