Apple today announced the launch of the Self Service Repair Program in Europe.
Now, users not only in the US, but also in a number of European countries will be able to repair their Apple devices on their own.
Users in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the UK can now get the tools they need, purchase genuine Apple parts, and access repair guides from the Apple Repair Store.
As Apple notes, customers will be able to perform many of the most common repairs for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series, as well as laptops based on Apple’s SoC.
The program was announced last year, became available to iPhone owners in the US in the spring, and MacBooks joined in August.
Not Intel, not AMD, and not even Elbrus or Baikal. Presented laptop Haier Boyue G43 on the Chinese CPU Zhaoxin KX-6000G
Haier introduced the Boyue G43 laptop based on the Chinese Zhaoxin KX-6000G processor. This mobile PC was nominally shown at the time of the announcement of the CPU in November, but now a full-fledged announcement has taken place.
The Boyue G43 also has 8GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512GB SSD, a 14-inch Full HD IPS screen, and a 65Wh battery. It is extremely difficult to judge autonomy, given the little-studied processor. But we do know that it has a TDP of 15W.
There’s also a backlit keyboard, fingerprint scanner, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, USB 3.1, USB-C (x2), USB 2.0 (x2), and HDMI. The laptop can run both Windows and UOS and Kirin. Unfortunately, there is no price information yet.
As for the processor, we recall that the KX-6000G is a quad-core solution, which is produced using the 16 nm process technology. The CPU operates at frequencies of 2.0-3.0 GHz and has an integrated C-1080 graphics core with support for DirectX 12, OpenCL 1.2, OpenGL 4.6 and 4K displays.
