The Mactracker app, which acts as a device encyclopedia on the Apple Mac, among other things, is up to date again. This week the developer Ian Page updated the database and entered the most recently presented iPhone, MacBook and iPad models. The free overview now contains information such as the model number, data on the installed hardware, prices, weight and other information. In addition, new graphics were implemented, e.g. B. the notch of the new MacBook Pro models M1 Pro or M1 Max to make visible. You can find the download and the update option for the Mactracker app in the official App Store.
I don't write an article for every Mactracker update, if only because I don't notice every update. But this time it's me as last in February 2021, noticed and the changes are worth noting to you. In addition to a few bug fixes and other improvements to the program itself, a few more entries have been added to the device database it contains. The iPhone 13 (mini), iPhone 13 Pro (Max), the new MacBook Pro models with 14- and 16-inch displays as well as the iPad (9th gen) and iPad mini (6th gen) are now included. You can view the version history of the app in the App Store.
In addition to updates to the Mactracker app, which bring newly introduced devices into the database, there are also updates to old devices. As shown in the article on version 7.10.3 linked above, information and data on the “iPhone Bluetooth Headset” from 2007, for example, were added. Which device I personally still miss in the Apple device encyclopedia is this one Apple Pippin, a video game console from 1996. While it was a complete flop, it would be interesting to include it as one of the many devices in Apple's history.
Do you know any other Apple devices that are missing from the Mactracker app? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic!
