    Been here for a while, last year, when I bought my daughter a MacBook. Ever since I want my own. So two days ago I bought my first mac, that is a MBP 13 2018 8/256.

    Been using Macs since 1987. Am contemplating getting the new Apple Watch, mainly for my wife and I to communicate on the farm where we live. But struggle to find serious reviews of this function.

    Nice idea. Been struggling to see the point of walkie talkie feature but this could work. No experience of the watch myself.

    I have a larger old iPhone, went large as I do a lot of photography. But hate carrying it around. The watch could serve us well, and easier / faster than texting. I like the fact that you don't need to be near your phone for the walkie-talkie aspect to work.

    So here is something I am struggling to learn about the watch: how will the walkie talkie function be affected, if I were to buy the GPS only version? Or do I need to get the GPS + Cellular to have optimum use of the walkie-talkie? The info that is out there doesn't make this clear at all.

    Hey everyone, I have been wanting to do this for a while so I figured I would put it out there to see what kind of interest it may generate. I am actually an AppleCare Senior chat advisor and I feel like there are a lot of misconceptions out there when it comes to chatting in to AppleCare Support, and I feel like it is info that everyone has a right to know. The biggest being that I am not an employee of Apple, in fact I am not even allowed to admit that the work I do is for Apple. I get many angry Customers that rant about Apple and in most cases I have their back 100%, as I honestly have never been a huge fan of Apple, but I have to be careful what I say in those situations because I need to keep my job as I am a regular person that has bills to pay too. Just curious if anyone would even be interested about insight from my side of the fence. Thanks!

    I do think members here would be interested in your insights. The Apple, Inc and Tech Industry forum I linked here would probably be the best place to post this.

    Hi, not been a Mac user for long, but since I have, I have used MacRumors as a valuable learning resource. Joined as it only seems right if I use your resources but now have a problem and posted it today. Let’s hope I get the response I need as I see many others have.

    Yo! Not a Mac newbie but just registered. Was an Apple evangelist, now a spectator. Currently tapping keys on an Early 2015 MBP 13" (maxed out). Got the first iPhone when it came out. Switched to Galaxy for a better experience. Looking forward to purchasing Microsoft's latest Surface Pro, because apple still doesn't have touch screens on their laptops (wtf apple).

    hoping to get some insight and assistance in troubleshooting my cMP and maybe tweak it some more.

    pretty well versed with mac products, own almost everything... including some hackintoshs.

    Hello all! I just joined recently the forum. I am definitely iOS and as a whole Apple newbie as the only Apple device I own is 2018 iPad (6th gen). The forum is a useful place to check if some others face the issues I do with this device. I am new to the iOS experience as well so I found quite helpful information here when it comes to the gestures and the OS as a whole.

    Hi everyone,

    I have been reading mac rumors for years but never really joined the community.

    I love apple products and finding out what is coming next (a family member even worked for the marketing company for apple and i was telling them what was coming out and when before they were allowed to tell me or even knew themselves)

    I look forward to joining the community!!

    Georgia xx

    p.s if anyone has any apple stickers going i have a collection (would specifically love a black one)
