This will definitely come in handy.

iFixit recently noticed that the RAM in Apple’s new 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display was upgradable and is already offering a kit to take advantage of this fact.

It’s been noted that the base 3.0 GHz model tops out at 16GB of RAM and that the only way to jump to 32GB of RAM is to purchase the pricier 3.4 GHz model. In order the snag the 32GB configuration, you’d have to pay an extra $200 for the faster model, plus another $600 to scale up to 32GB of RAM.

iFixit’s 32GB RAM kit is available for $299.95 before delivery and includes the following items:

In spite of past arguments and legal troubles between Apple and Samsung, it’s estimated that Samsung will deliver around 80 million OLED screens suitable for the next-gen iPhone before the end of 2017 —but a later than expected date for mass shipments for the phone is still expected.

Per DigiTimes, which cited “sources from the upstream supply chain”, Samsung and other component manufacturers have geared up for supplying components for not just the “iPhone 8,” but the “iPhone 7s” family as well.

Apple’s order of roughly 80 million OLED screens will occupy about half of Smasung’s manufacturing capacity for the final six months of 2017. The rest of the capacity will meet Samsung’s own needs, although it’s thought that some units will remain in reserve should Apple need them.
