According to the rumors, Apple is set to release the iPad mini 5 in the near future. The tablet has not been updated in years and if you were hoping to see a brand new design similar to the new iPad Pros, think again. This is because according to photos published by 91Mobiles (via Cult of Mac), it seems that Apple won’t be straying too far from the previous design.
Apple is expected to unveil a new iPad in the coming months and it’s now being reported that there may not be any surprises on the headphone jack front. A new report claims that the upcoming tablet from Apple is going to retail its headphone jack and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor which is embedded in the home button.
Apple charging such a premium on their iPhones isn’t doing their customers any favors because it also means that iPhones are now more desirable than ever to thieves. However what’s interesting is that based on data from Prey, a device-protection company, it seems that your iDevice is more likely to have been misplaced than stolen.
In the past Apple has typically been seen as an innovative company, but recently their products and offerings just feel more of the same, where they don’t seem to be paying any attention to what their customers want or are saying to them. If you’re hoping that this could change in the future, think again.
When it comes to determining how powerful or efficient a chipset is, there are other things to look at besides just clock speed. The process that the chip is being built on matters, which is why while the layperson might not care how many “nm” a chipset is being built-on, the end result could be a faster and more efficient chipset.
Last year Apple introduced a new budget iPad with Apple Pencil support. The company later updated its iPad Pro lineup with a brand new design with Face ID, and if the rumors are true, Apple could be gearing up for an iPad refresh along with a long overdue refresh of the iPad mini.
Due to the fact that the majority of our electronics are powered by lithium-ion batteries, it carries the risk of the device exploding and catching on fire. For the most part the number of devices exploding and catching on fire is pretty low in the grand scheme of things, but when it happens, it can be disastrous.
Apple refreshed their lineup of iPad Pros last year which means that we probably won’t be seeing a refresh of that anytime soon. This means that in terms of iPad refreshes, what we can expect to see is a refresh to last year’s budget iPad, and if the rumors are true, the iPad mini as well which has been neglected for quite a while.
With Apple’s new iPad Pros launched last year, Apple finally brought Face ID technology to its iPads. We expect that this trend will continue this year, but unfortunately it won’t be for the iPad or iPad mini refresh that we have been hearing about. This is according to developer Steve Troughton-Smith who discovered references made to new iPads in the iOS 12.2 beta.
According to a recent report, it has been suggested that Apple has some new iPads in the works that could be launched in the first half of the year. This includes a refresh to the budget iPad that was introduced last year, and also a refresh to the iPad mini which hasn’t been refreshed in quite a while.
In the early part of 2019, Apple launched a new entry-level iPad that featured slightly dated specs. However at its price point and the fact that it was compatible with the Apple Pencil made it a very tempting purchase for those who did not see the need to spend that much money on the iPad Pro.
As much as Microsoft would love for everyone to buy into their Windows ecosystem where they use Windows-based computers, tablets, and smartphones, the reality is that we use devices from a variety of ecosystems. Microsoft seems to understand this as their strategy these days regarding mobile seems to be about embracing the competition and developing for them.
#CES2019 – When it comes to protecting our computers and accounts, the most common way would be a password. However since passwords can be guessed, other methods have since been created such as 2FA, biometric security, and more recently it seems that hardware keys are increasing in popularity.
According to the rumors, Apple is said to be working on a new iPad mini tablet. A leak from last month hinted that we could be looking at a new design which isn’t surprising given how old the tablet is. However a new leak from Twitter user Mr White (via Cult of Mac) seems to suggest otherwise.
