mac-pro-appleThe last time we heard about the Mac Pro it was back in 2013 when it was first launched to the masses. However after that we did not hear about any upgrades or hardware refreshes to the computer, but given that the Mac Pro is quite the workhorse, we suppose its hardware is more than capable of lasting more than a year.

However is a 2 year gap kind of pushing it? Perhaps, which is why  E. Werner Reschke at TGaap has speculated that later this month, Apple could host another event and this time instead of focusing on mobile, the event could talk about new hardware in terms of their Mac lineup, with speculation that a Mac Pro with updated specs could be announced.

Apple-iPad-Pro-apple-pencil-3The iPad Pro was launched last month and according to Apple, the tablet would only be going on sale in November. However the question is when in November? Could we be looking at a release towards the end of November? Early November? Mid November? Unfortunately at that time Apple had no specific dates for us.

However according to a recent rumor out of Japan from Mac Otakara (via AppleInsider), they have suggested that according to their sources who have knowledge of Apple’s supply chain in China, Apple could be gearing up for a release of the iPad Pro, Smart Keyboard, and the Apple Pencil stylus accessory in the first week of November.

app_thinning_2xOne of the features of iOS 9 is App Thinning. For those hearing about this for the first time, basically the concept behind App Thinning to help keep app sizes smaller, thus allowing users with 16GB iOS devices to free up more space on their phones. However due to an iCloud bug, the feature was delayed.

Thankfully it looks like the bug has been fixed as Apple has recently confirmed that app slicing (a part of App Thinning) is now back into play. According to the Apple developer page, “The issue affecting app slicing has been fixed, and device-specific versions of apps will be delivered when downloaded by users running iOS 9.0.2 or later.” Users interested in learning more can hit up Apple’s website for the more technical details.

imac keyboardProjected keyboards aren’t new. We’ve seen them in the past but according to a recently discovered patent (via Cult of Mac), it has been suggested that in the future, we can look forward to iMacs that feature built-in projected keyboards. What this means is that instead of having to deal with a physical keyboard, you can type on a projected one instead.

Also instead of relying on a separate device to project the keyboard, the patent diagram suggests that the projector could be built into the base of the iMac. This seems to be in line with Apple’s all-in-one design, although from what we can tell you will still need to rely on a separate mouse.

razer-musicRazer is a company that is probably better known for its gaming peripherals like keyboards, mice, headphones, speakers, and so on. However recently we’ve started to see the company branch out into other industries, like wearables with the Razer Nabu, and now according to an announcement made by the company, they are diving into the music business with Razer Music.

Before you think that this is another music streaming service designed to compete with the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Pandora, Rdio, and etc., you would be mistaken. Instead Razer Music is a new music platform that is aimed at music producers and musicians. Basically if you’re an aspiring musician or one who is looking to improve their production, Razer Portal will feature video tutorials, articles, and production tips from industry experts.

imac retinaEarlier this year we reported that there was a rumor suggesting that a 4K iMac was planned for launch later this year. A later rumor from last month indicated that the computer was already in production but unfortunately for us we did not hear about it during Apple’s event. However a report from 9to5Mac has revealed that we can expect its launch as soon as next week.

It is unlikely that Apple will hold a special event just for the iMacs, so chances are its announcement will come in the form of a press release and will most likely pop up on Apple’s online store. Unfortunately the specs and features of the iMac remain unknown at this point, but last we heard it was for the 21.5-inch models. Read full post →4K iMac Rumored For Launch Next Week

nexus-5-review--015If you have the Nexus 5 on T-Mobile’s network and are thinking of updating to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, maybe you should hold off on it first. According to reports on Reddit, it seems that the handset is facing reception issues after the update. In a reply by a T-Mobile rep, the problem has since been reported internally.

Now we should point out that not all Nexus 5 handsets on T-Mobile are affected and it doesn’t seem to be a widespread problem either. There are plenty of users who are claiming that their phones are working just fine. At this point it is unclear as to what might be causing the poor reception. It is entirely possible that the user encountered a particularly bad moment in reception after the update. Read full post →Some T-Mobile Nexus 5 Facing Reception Issues Post-Android 6.0 Update

samsung exynos 7Samsung’s Exynos chipsets are a force to be reckoned with, as we have seen earlier this year when it made its way exclusively into the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. For the most part, the Exynos series has held its own. However when it comes to the GPUs found in the chipset, this is where Samsung has to outsource.

We have seen the likes of PowerVR and Mali being used in the Exynos which is fine given how well Samsung’s phones run, but according to a rumored roadmap, it seems that Samsung could be considering making their own GPUs in the future. How soon will that be? Unfortunately if you were hoping to see a Samsung-made GPU in the Galaxy S7 in 2016, you might be disappointed.
