You can already save $100 on the 16-inch MacBook Pro at Best Buy

The ink is still warm on Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro press release, yet you can already save $100 on the new Apple laptop thanks to Best Buy, which is offering the discount exclusively to Best Buy members.

The discount applies to four different configurations of the just-launched laptop, covering a range of different spec options and colors. Here are the models you can score a saving on:

  • Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, AMD Radeon Pro 5300M graphics card, 512GB SSD, space gray color — $2,300 with discount
  • Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, AMD Radeon Pro 5300M graphics card, 512GB SSD, silver color — $2,300 with discount
  • Intel Core i9 processor, 16GB RAM, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M graphics card, 1TB SSD, space gray color — $2,700 with discount
  • Intel Core i9 processor, 16GB RAM, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M graphics card, 1TB SSD, silver color — $2,700 with discount

While there are no discounts on any other models — including those with the record-breaking 8TB SSD or whopping 64GB RAM — these are still excellent deals given the 16-inch MacBook Pro literally came out yesterday. It’s extremely rare for an Apple product to receive a discount this close to launch, and given the excitement that’s been generated around the 16-inch MacBook Pro in recent months, this offer from Best Buy is definitely worth a look.

Best of all, you can get the discounts for free, as it doesn’t cost a thing to become a Best Buy member. Just sign up on the Best Buy website and you’ll automatically be in line for the deal.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro had been rumored for months before its recent launch. It has replaced the MacBook Pro 15, and comes with much slimmer bezels, improved graphics chips, better speakers and a 100 watt-hour battery.

Perhaps the best improvement, though, is the keyboard. Apple’s previous butterfly design was failure-prone and had a noticeably low travel distance, making it somewhat unpopular with MacBook users. That’s now been ditched, and the new scissor-switch keyboard brings greater travel, quieter key taps and increased longevity, according to Apple.

We’ll be reviewing the 16-inch MacBook Pro as soon as we get our hands on it, so check back for that. And if you want one of Apple’s brand-new laptops right now, make sure you take advantage of this excellent launch-day deal.

Your next MacBook Air could be even faster than expected

Apple’s upcoming 15-inch MacBook Air could be launching sooner than expected, which is encouraging for anyone who has been waiting for this much-rumored device. But the good news doesn’t end there, as it could also get a sizeable chip upgrade that would leave rival devices in the dust.

For months, it had been suggested that Apple was working on a new 15-inch version of the MacBook Air that was going to be released at a spring event. However, now that Apple has announced it will host its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) -- but not a spring event -- it seems that the latter isn’t happening. That suggests the 15-inch MacBook Air will have to wait until WWDC before seeing the light of day.

The updates — iOS 16.4.1 and iPadOS 16.4.1 — started rolling out on Friday, but you should install them on your iPhone and iPad as soon as possible to protect your devices from attacks.

In its official release note, Apple says the updates patch two security flaws that “may have been actively exploited.” Now, Apple doesn’t disclose security issues before conducting thorough research, both in-house and in collaboration with cybersecurity experts. In a nutshell, when Apple publicly announces a security flaw, and it comes with a “Critical Vulnerability” badge, you should grab the fix as soon as Apple makes them available.

If you’ve been waiting for Apple to launch an OLED MacBook Pro, there’s some bad news: it might not come out for another three years. That’s a serious wait considering many of Apple’s rivals have already brought out some of the best OLED laptops on the market.

The news comes from display industry tipster Ross Young, who is well-known for having a solid track record when it comes to Apple leaks. Young tweeted a link to a Reuters article outlining Samsung’s plans for an OLED fabrication plant, adding the comment: “This fab is for 14” and 16” OLED MacBook Pros from 2026.”
