AWT News Update: October 31, 2016

We have some ghoulishly good stories for you today on the Apple World Today News Update (and a few pictures of Mac Performas, which were some of the ugliest Macs ever!):

  • We tell you about the design decision that resulted in the new MacBook Pros having a maximum of 16GB of RAM and leaving half of the Thunderbolt 3 ports on the 13-inch model with limited bandwidth
  • There’s something else missing from the new MacBook Pro that has been in every Mac since the first one back in 1984…
  • Twitter’s testing a new feature in the iOS app that might make it easier to read linked webpages
