  1. Update - Behind The Scenes Greeting everyone, Thank you all for your continued support towards the Dune Pro. We are still on track for a late November shipping. As promised, we have shot many photos and videos of the different factories we will be using to produce the Dune Pro! 7th November - Inspecting the Anodising and CNC Factory Alex conducted inspections on the Anodising and CNC Factory. Both of these inspections are vital to ensure the Quality of the Dune Pro meets not only our own personal expectations but also the expectations of our backers. 7th November - New Stamping Videos We received new footage from our friends over at the stamping factory. This footage shows the Motherboard Tray being stamped out, using the moulds we invested so heavily into earlier on in the campaign. 12th November - Securing a deal with the Anodising Factory We secured a deal with the Anodising Factory! This will be the location where all Dune Pro Cases, current and future, will undergo the anodisation process. 12th November - CNC Process We spoke with the CNC Factory to discuss the final preparations regarding the CNC Process, making any final optimisations to the process. We are working with a CNC Factory with over 20 Years Experience in the industry, to ensure the quality of the final product is of the highest quality. 12th November - Production Line After 3 days of discussions, the Production Line location within the factory has been finalised. The factory is capable to produce more than 20,000 units a month. Thank you to all backers for your continued support. We understand your anticipation for the Dune Pro, but are thrilled to be able to share this information with you all! We will continue to update you regularly with Photos and Videos, through Indiegogo and Discord, so keep an eye out for this in the future! Thanks, Dune Pro Team
  2. After launching Big Sur to the public last week with macOS 11.0.1, Apple has released the 11.1 beta to developers. Apple made the macOS Big Sur 11.1 beta available via its Developer website and should arrive as an over-the-air update for those already enrolled in the beta. The macOS 11.1 beta just includes generic release notes, but it should come with bug fixes and performance improvements that many will be waiting for before upgrading to the major new Mac release (or since upgrading). macOS Big Sur comes with an all-new design inspired by iOS, new Control Center, Notifications, Center, redesigned Messages app, lots of Safari improvements, support for the new M1 Macs, iOS apps, and much more.

  3. A large number of late 2013 and mid 2014 13-inch MacBook Pro owners are reporting that the macOS Big Sur update is bricking their machines. A MacRumors forum thread contains a significant number of users reporting the issue, and similar problems are being reported across Reddit and the Apple Support Communities, suggesting the problem is widespread. Users are reporting that during the course of updating to ‌macOS Big Sur‌, their machines are stuck displaying a black screen. Key reset combinations, including NVRAM, SMC, safe mode, and internet recovery, are all reportedly inaccessible after attempting to install the update, leaving no way to bypass the static black screen. It appears that the overwhelming number of users experiencing problems are owners of the late 2013 and mid 2014 13-inch MacBook Pro, but it is unclear exactly how many users of these models have been affected. It is also of note that these are the oldest models supported by ‌macOS Big Sur‌. One commenter on Reddit said that they were told by Apple support to book their MacBook Pro in for a repair. Another on an Apple Support thread said that the issue has been escalated to Apple's engineering team, so Apple should now be aware of the problem. Until it is clear what may be causing the issue and Apple releases a fix, late 2013 and mid 2014 13-inch MacBook Pro may wish to hold off on installing ‌macOS Big Sur‌. (Source: MacRumours)

  5. After nearly five months of beta testing, macOS 11 Big Sur is now available to the general public. Big Sur is a massive update for the Mac, bringing a redesigned interface, widget support, a new Control Center, and much more. Here are some of the best new features in macOS Big Sur. Apple has also published a press release detailing the new features in macOS Big Sur. How to install macOS Big Sur macOS 11 Big Sur is available as a free update for Mac users. The download and installation process might take some time, so be sure you’re prepared to be without a Mac for certain parts of the installation. macOS Big Sur can be accessed directly from the Mac App Store. Note that you might have to try multiple times before the download will begin as it’s rolling out slowly: Which Macs support macOS Big Sur? Here’s the full list of macOS Big Sur compatible Macs: 2015 and later MacBook 2013 and later MacBook Air 2013 and later MacBook Pro 2014 and later Mac mini 2014 and later iMac 2017 and later iMac Pro 2013 and later Mac Pro One of the highlights of macOS Big Sur is an updated Control Center that is similar to the Control Center available on iPhone and iPad. You can customize Control Center by dragging and dropping apps and features for things you use most, and drag and drop items from Control Center to the menu bar. Designed just for Mac, the new Control Center consolidates your favorite menu bar items into a single place to give you instant access to the controls you use most. Just click the Control Center icon in the menu bar and adjust Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AirDrop, and other settings — without opening System Preferences. New Safari features Safari in macOS 11 Big Sur also includes a variety of changes and improvements. Apple says that the new Safari is dramatically faster and more efficient, with frequently listed websites loading 50% faster on average than Chrome. Furthermore, Apple says that you can stream video for up to one and a half hours in Safari than in Chrome or Firefox. Safari has also gotten a visual overhaul, headlined by a new customizable start page. You can now set your custom background image and select new sections to display on the start page, including Favorites, Siri Suggestions, Reading List, iCloud Tabs, and a Privacy Report. Safari also now offers a built-in Translation functionality to translate into English, Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Russian, or Brazilian Portuguese. Finally, Safari also has a new Privacy Report feature to show how it protects your browsing history across the websites you visit. To find this, go to the Privacy Report from your Safari menu and you’ll get an in-depth overview of every cross-site tracker prevented over the last 30 days. AirPods Automatic device switching Much like iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, macOS 11 Big Sur also now supports automatic device switching with AirPods and other Apple and Beats headphones featuring the Apple H1 headphone chip. This functionality will allow your AirPods to switch between your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple Watch paired to the same iCloud account depending on which device is actively playing audio. For instance, if your AirPods are connected to your iPhone, but you sit down at your Mac and start playing audio there, your AirPods will automatically connect to your Mac. All-new Messages app After years of the iPhone and iPad Messages app pulling ahead, today’s release of macOS 11 Big Sur includes an all-new Messages app based on the iPad version. You can now pin conversations to the top of your list, share your name and photo automatically, use mentions to direct a message to a particular person in a group, and much more. Inline replies: Reply directly to a specific message in a group conversation. See all related messages in their own view to easily keep track of a thread. Enhanced photo picker: Use the updated photo picker to quickly access and share your recent photos and albums. Group photos: Set an image for your group conversations using a photo, Memoji, or emoji. Group photos are automatically shared with all members of the group. Message effects: Balloons, confetti, lasers, and more
  6. Let’s Get This Done Greeting everyone! We are pleased to inform you that Alex has completed his mandatory 14 Day Quarantine in China, and will proceed to work alongside Kevin to begin shipping the Dune Pro by Late November. Alex’s Hotel Alex stayed at a Hotel nearby to Beijing Capital International Airport for his mandatory 14 Day Quarantine. Power Button LED Indicator Thank you to all backers who submitted a response to our poll! The results have clearly demonstrated the majority of backers would like a Power LED Indicator added to the Dune Pro, so we will be implementing this to the final product. Let’s get this done Thank you, as always, for your continued support with the Dune Pro, we really appreciate the positive comments that come through, and enjoy reading them as it continues to motivate us as a team. Alex is in the process of visiting an array of factories over the next few days. We will continue to keep you updated with the latest information regarding all aspects of Dune Pro Production.
  7. Apple introduced the first MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini with M1 Apple Silicon chips yesterday, and as of today, the first benchmark of the new chip appears to be showing up on the Geekbench site. The M1 chip, which belongs to a ‌MacBook Air‌ with 8GB RAM, features a single-core score of 1687 and a multi-core score of 7433. According to the benchmark, the M1 has a 3.2GHz base frequency. When compared to existing devices, the M1 chip in the ‌MacBook Air‌ outperforms all iOS devices. For comparison's sake, the iPhone 12 Pro earned a single-core score of 1584 and a multi-core score of 3898, while the highest ranked iOS device on Geekbench's charts, the A14 iPad Air, earned a single-core score of 1585 and a multi-core score of 4647. In comparison to Macs, the single-core performance is better than any other available Mac, and the multi-core performance beats out all of the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro models, including the 10th-generation high-end 2.4GHz Intel Core i9 model. That high-end 16-inch MacBook Pro earned a single-core score of 1096 and a multi-core score of 6870. Though the M1 chip is outperforming the 16-inch MacBook Pro models when it comes to raw CPU benchmarks, the 16-inch MacBook Pro likely offers better performance in other areas such as the GPU as those models have high-power discrete GPUs. It's worth noting that there are likely to be some performance differences between the MacBook Pro and the ‌MacBook Air‌ even though they're using the same M1 chip because the ‌MacBook Air‌ has a fanless design and the MacBook Pro has an new Apple-designed cooling system. There's also a benchmark for the Mac mini, though, and it has about the same scores. The ‌Mac mini‌ with M1 chip that was benchmarked earned a single-core score of 1682 and a multi-core score of 7067. There's also a benchmark for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 chip and 16GB RAM that has a single-core score of 1714 and a multi-core score of 6802. Like the ‌MacBook Air‌, it has a 3.2GHz base frequency. A few other ‌MacBook Air‌ benchmarks have surfaced too with similar scores, and the full list is available on Geekbench. https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/4648680 - Mac Mini https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/4648107 - Macbook Air https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/4652718 - Macbook Pro 13"
