Why 512 SSD configuration in M2 MacBook Air not worth it?

The recent configuration tweak from Apple on latest version of M2 MacBook Air has resulted in reduction of SSD speed on base model and requires user upgrade to the 512GB SSD version for the increased speed and performance. Even though Apple has clarified that most normal user will not notice change in performance, over the years the performance would be evident and may even result in slower data read speed. So, for most users, the upgrade to 512GB version would be the suitable solution and it impacts the overall product price. Following are my reasons on why the 512GB SSD version does not makes sense and opting for M1 Pro version would be the wiser decision.
  • Increased configuration puts price closer to M1 Pro: The increase from 256GB SSD to 512GB SSD version comes at a higher price and the overall cost brings the M2 MacBook Air closer to the M1 Pro MacBook. If the price is too close to the M1 Pro MacBook, then opting to the premium version of the processor would be the smart decision, as with increased price you are getting both RAM upgrade from 8GB to 16GB and SSD upgrade from 256GB to 512GB.
  • Pro-Motion display could be the next big feature update: M1 Pro MacBook not only comes with the configuration upgrade, but also with the Pro-motion display with 120Hz and advanced mini-LED technology. With these advanced display features, Apple could focus on bringing in new enhancements and software updates with new enhancements to the user experience.

With above reasons, it may be evident that rather than getting the 512GB SSD upgraded M2 MacBook Air, it would be wiser to get M1 Pro with slight increase in budget for improved performance and technology advancements.

Frustrated usage of AirPods Pro with manufacturing defect

As I have detailed in my earlier articles about possibility of manufacturing defect in my AirPods Pro and I have been using with the issue for past one year. As I continued to use my AirPods Pro, there were couple of frustrations which forced me to visit Apple service center at the earliest to get it resolved. The concerns are as follows
  • Echoing voice while attending calls in AirPods Pro: Recently, while I was taking calls on my iPhone through AirPods pro, I noticed strange voice echo while talking and the issue propped up during calls. Initially, I though the issue was due to bad network and tried resetting both iPhone and AirPods Pro. The issue kept propping up even with all basic troubleshooting steps and tried contacting Apple customer support for any possible resolutions. All options went in vain, and the issue kept propping up whenever I took up any call through my AirPods Pro, either through WIFI or through mobile network.
  • Tickling sound while watching movies or hearing music: Another issue I noticed while using my AirPods Pro was, whenever I move my head or while walking, I used to hear tickling sound on my device and as usual I have tried all basic troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue. However, all my effort to resolve the issue went in vain and continued to use my AirPods Pro.

The above issues may seem normal for few people and for me it was completely frustrating and at one point, I was even checking out feasible option of buying new alternative headphones. However, to know more about it forced me to visit Apple service center and its subsequent process, please feel free to check out the articles published in “G R Team Sites”

2nd Time failure of my MacBook Pro and it was not the end

As stated in my earlier posts, my 2012 MacBook Pro had started to show off its wear-out and had couple of failures earlier. First failure was resolved through SMC reset and the second failure was resolved through power cable replacement. However, the issues were more than expected and following are the few that were encountered
  • Complete shutdown overnight and loose contact of power cable: One fine day, when I was about to login to my MacBook Pro, the laptop was not turning ON and I was completely sure that my laptop had 100% charge and there is no possibility of draining out overnight. So, again I had to diagnose the issue and found that the power cable was not properly intact with laptops power source and had to adjusted to get proper power source. So, finally I was able to diagnose the issue with power source in my laptop and the only solution was to adjust the cable until the power light is ON.
  • Trackpad issues and Battery got bulged: With random shutdowns and power source issues of my MacBook pro, there was one other issue that was concerning me while I was working on my personal project was that the trackpad was getting sticky, and the usual mouse click, or the right click was not as smooth as it used to be. While I was concerned that my trackpad was not functioning as expected, I noticed that bottom lid of my MacBook pro was coming out and when I opened out the bottom lid, I was in complete shock about my battery, it got bulged and may completely get out of shape in short span of time and to be replaced as early as possible.

Constraint’s while being independent of Laptop


With evolution of mobile and tablets in recent times, it was proven that the handheld devices can co-exist with laptop and most of the activities can be executed on the go. I use MAC as my primary device and will leverage my iPad or iPhone to take care of important work activities while on travel. However, there are few constraints while using handheld devices with independent of laptop and wanted to detail my concerns associated with handheld devices. 
  • Opening Zip files in handheld devices: Even with the technology advancements and importance of using mobile devices on the go, most transactions and large file transactions happen with Zip file extensions. However, the handheld devices do not have option to open or extract the Zip files and has lot of constraints while transferring file with Zip extensions.
  • Limited applications availability and premium subscription charges: Most of the desktop applications have now been optimized or developed from scratch to work on handheld devices however, there are numerous applications which have not been ported to work on handheld devices and even if the applications are available in mobile or tablet devices, the applications have premium subscription charges and mostly do not have one-time cost benefits. 
The above concerns are detailed based on usage in iPhone and iPad devices and based on my personal experience. Check more such articles in “G R Team Sites”

Issues in iPhone dual sim capabilities


For past few years iPhone have been offering dual sim capabilities like one physical sim and E-Sim options, however usage of the dual sim in iPhone is complicated for most users. I have been using iPhone 11 for past few years and configured e-sim as my alternative mobile number. However, while using dual sim on my iPhone, I was facing few issues and was expecting Apple to address the concerns, so the users can get seamless experience.
  • Lack of option available to select sim quickly from dialed list: If you were about to call already dialed contact or the contact’s name you have saved already, then iPhone will use the sim that had received the call, or the preferred line selected while saving the contact. There was no option to enable checklist while dialing the already dialed or received number to select the line for the call and lack of option available to enable to ask about the preferred line, every time the saved contact number is dialed. 
  • Using alternative number or second SIM to send messages: When you send a message to a contact, the messages are always sent from the primary sim, or the preferred line selected while sending the message. There was no option available to select the SIM line while sending the message or the option to enable checklist for specific contact list.
  • Sending message without saving the contact: When you quick dial the number of a person, there was no option available to directly send a message to that number, either you had to dial the number to send the message or save the number to send the messages. 
Hope addresses the above concerns regarding dual sim support in iPhone in the upcoming iOS software updates. For more such articles, please feel free to check out the articles published in G R Team Sites.
