Apple manuals and support documents for new and old devices and software

Apple recently launched a new “Manuals, Technical Data and Downloads” support section on its website. There are various guides and useful information on different types of devices and their operating systems. Various software that Apple offers or has once offered for its devices is also displayed. The new offering serves as a good starting point for exploring various devices, old and new. However, there are still a few points that could be improved.

From the latest hardware, which is not yet available worldwide, but apart from that there is also information about quite old devices, their software and suitable accessories.

In addition to general information about the old hardware, you will also receive an overview of the technical data and documents such as: B. Installation manuals and software such as firmware, drivers and operating systems are offered.

The offer could be made more inviting

In my opinion, the offer lacks a few explanatory texts that could make it easier for newbies to use. Anyone who is already familiar with the Apple cosmos will certainly find their way around quickly. But if you are just getting familiar with the first Apple device or are exploring the retro area for the first time Legacy Macs If you venture forward, you have to laboriously collect the relevant information.
