Ever since Apple has done away with Touch ID on its iPhones (for the most part), there have been multiple rumors suggesting that Apple could actually be looking to bring the tech back through an in-display sensor. If the rumors are to be believed, it could actually happen with the iPhone 13 this year.
Apple’s current design for its laptops is getting a bit old. While it’s a solid design and there’s nothing much to dislike about it, we reckon it’s due for a change. We have heard rumors that a redesign could be coming, and now analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is sharing some of those design changes.
It is largely expected that Apple will be hosting an event in the coming months where they are expected to unveil new products like a new iPad, maybe the AirTags, and possibly more, but it seems that the company has a “big announcement” that they are planning on making tomorrow.
If you’ve completely bought into the Apple ecosystem and own multiple Apple products like an iPad, Apple Watch, iPhone, AirPods, and more, then you might be interested in taking a look at Kensington’s latest offering that the company unveiled at CES 2021 – the Kensington StudioDock.
The rumors are saying that Apple is expected to introduce a new iPad in the coming months. This could include the iPad mini, the 9th gen iPad, and also the iPad Pro which could be getting a mini LED display. Now thanks to CAD renders obtained by MySmartPrice, we might have an idea of what the iPad Pro 2021 could look like.
Apple’s iPad mini, as the name suggests, is currently the smallest out of the entire iPad lineup with a 7.9-inch display. Given that Apple has since launched iPads with 12.9-inch displays, it certainly does feel a lot smaller, but Apple could change that with their next iPad mini refresh, according to a report from Macotakara.
Apple’s iPad lineup consists of several different models, ranging from the top-of-the-line iPad Pro to the budget iPad. For those who feel that maybe the budget iPad’s design is looking a bit dated, you might be pleased to learn that the tablet could be undergoing a redesign for the 9th generation model.
Last year before the year closed out, there was a report claiming that Apple could launch a new iPad Pro in the first quarter of 2021. While refreshes are to be expected, what makes this iPad Pro different is that it is apparently rumored to be using mini LED display panels, a change from the LCDs iPads have used in the past.
There have been rumors in recent times suggesting that Apple could be looking to adopt the use of mini LEDs for its products, such as the iPad lineup. If you are looking forward to seeing a mini LED iPad, then you might want to hold off on your purchase because the latest rumors are claiming that such a device will launch in the first quarter of 2021.
At the moment, Apple’s iOS devices are typically limited to just one user per device. This is unlike a computer where users can sign in using their own ID where their preferences and files are kept separately. However, it seems that in the future, iOS devices could potentially allow for multiple user accounts.
Apple’s iPads typically use the same A-series of chipsets that the iPhone uses, except with some tweaks that make it slightly more powerful. However, it seems that in the future moving forwards, Apple’s iPads could get a massive boost in performance as they might end up using the M-series chipsets that Apple is using for their ARM-based Mac computers.
One of the ways to save money on a new product would be to trade-in an older product. Apple is a company that accepts trade-ins of its older products and you get credit towards its newer ones. However, it seems that the company has recently made some adjustments to the value of some of their devices.
Last month, Google teased that Stadia would finally be arriving for iOS devices and it looks like that day has finally arrived. For those who are interested in streaming games on their iPhones and iPads, you will now be able to choose Stadia as one of the game streaming platforms available to you.
It used to be impossible to change the default apps on your iOS device, but with iOS 14, Apple has made some concessions, one of which is the changing of your default browser.
Right now when it comes to buying a new Apple product, you’d have to buy it outright, or get it on an installment plan from a carrier if they’re selling it. You can also trade-in an older device and use the credit towards a new one. However, it seems that maybe in the future, Apple could consider introducing a hardware-based subscription.
Apple’s iPads have long supported cellular connectivity, and with the new iPhone 12 series supporting 5G, we suppose it shouldn’t really come as a surprise to learn that Apple could be looking to introduce mmWave 5G to its higher-end iPad Pros starting in 2021, or at least that’s the word according to DigiTimes.
Apple had not too long ago expressed their willingness to allow game streaming services on their mobile devices, but there was a caveat in which they also required developers to submit their games to the App Store if it were also available on the game streaming service. Apple claims that this is so that they can review the games to ensure it abides by their terms and conditions.
With Apple’s iPhones pretty much switching over to OLED displays, many have wondered when the iPad series will make that transition. It’s not entirely impossible, but the larger screens would represent technical challenges, not to mention it might also see an increase in costs, but if you love the idea of an OLED iPad, you’re in luck.
While the majority of mobile games can be played perfectly fine using the onscreen controls, there are some games that might benefit from using an external game controller. However, this in turn raises some issues in which gamers will need to spend extra money on a separate accessory.
Browser tabs allow users to visit multiple websites at once. This has become a standard feature on desktops, but on tablets, it offers a slightly different experience. However, if you’re an iPad user who would like a more desktop like browsing experience using Chrome on your tablet, you’re in luck.
