Mactracker with additions to the latest and old Apple hardware

The one that has often been recommended here in the blog Mactracker app for Mac, iPad and iPhone got another update a few days ago. But this not only ensured that the Apple lexicon got the entries for the Vision Pro and visionOS. Also an optional peripheral for the Macintosh introduced in 1984 (which recently celebrated its 40th anniversary) has now been included. Last but not least, developer Ian Page added some information about current operating system updates to his free program.

With the update to version 7.12.14, the Mactracker app not only received entries for the Vision Pro and visionOS, but also information about the Macintosh Numeric Keypad. There is now additional information for hardware from 2024 and 1984 alike.

Information about the Apple Vision Pro in the Mactracker app

Sometimes it takes a long time after new Apple products are launched until an entry about them appears in the Mactracker app. After all, it is a long-held hobby project by developer Ian Page. This time he didn't take too much time and packed the information about the new Apple hardware, the Vision Pro, into an update quite quickly. Information about the corresponding operating system, the first version of visionOS, was also included. The update to Mactracker version 7.12.14 also contained some information about the updates to iOS 17.3, macOS 14.3 and so on.

Macintosh Numeric Keypad from 1984 now also included in the lexicon

While almost all representatives of the main product series can be found in the Apple lexicon, a few more specific entries are missing here and there. If you don't look into Apple's history in great detail, you'll only notice it when the respective update is installed. At least I hadn't noticed that the Macintosh Numeric Keypad wasn't listed until the current Mactracker version. But now there is an entry so that you can read about the optional numpad, which was introduced with the Apple Macintosh in January 1984, but was only sold from September of that year for $99 (today that would be $293 adjusted for inflation).
