Now covers entire Apple product line from 1976 forward
In a substantial update on Friday, the Mac and iDevice reference catalog app MacTracker (free) has added Apple's entire pre-Macintosh inventory to its database for the first time, along with a few minor tweaks and updates. It had previously only gone as far back as the Lisa (under its later "Macintosh XL" name). The program itself has a long history, having been created by Canadian Ian Page in 2001 and faithfully updated ever since.
The program, offered free for both OS X and iOS, include detailed technical capabilities, average Geekbench scores, startup sounds, trouble sounds and expansion options for a variety of Apple-created gear, including cameras, printers and peripherals alongside the Mac and iOS devices over the decades. The update today adds "typical acoustical performance" for portable MacBook models as well as fixes an import issue for reports created by Apple Remote Desktop, which can be added to the "My Models" section where users can store details of their own machines.
The program now also includes details on the Apple I, Apple II, Apple IIe, Apple III and all the related models of the pre-Macintosh era, and also covers the Apple Monitor line of the period, along with information on the original Apple Mouse line. The update also refreshes the support status for Apple's latest "vintage and obsolete" products, which it revises periodically. Versions that run on older Macs and earlier versions of iOS are also available.
