Where do you go to find out all you need to know about every Mac, iPhone, and iPad ever made? Or, pretty much everything else Apple has ever manufactured? All that information comes in a free database application, for OS X or iOS.
The Ultimate Tracker
Available in the Mac App Store or the iTunes App Store for iOS devices is the free application known as Mactracker, which dates back to the days when Apple and the Mac were one and the same.
Through the years Mactracker has proven indispensable for Apple folk, Apple watchers, and history buffs because it offers detailed information on every Mac ever made.
What kind of information? More than you need to know, but all the details from CPUs, RAM, disk and optical drives, graphics cards and capability, expansion options, and all the supported OS versions, from Mac Classic to all versions of OS X.
Mactracker is probably the wrong name for what you get, but it is what it is.
Also included are details on nearly everything else Apple made or makes. That includes mouse, keyboard, displays, printers, scanners, speakers, cameras, the Newton, as well as modern day products like iPod, Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, Airport and more.
Everything is accessible through a sidebar menu or the built-in search.
There is absolutely nothing to not like about using Mactracker. There’s no faster, easier way to find out more about the Mac you own, the Mac you want to buy, used Macs, or Macs you once owned, but Mactracker covers all the various Apple-branded products from Newton to iPod, from iPhone to iPad.
Mactracker comes with options to monitor and manage device warranties, and easily creates Smart Categories to keep Apple product information easily accessible; for example, all models with a G5 processor. You can also search products by year.
If you’re interested in Apple’s products– from the beginning to today– Mactracker is the only place to find all of what you need to know. What about Pippin? You don’t really want to know.
