Apple hasn’t updated their iPad mini in about 2 years, and even before that the improvements they made to the tablet were incremental at best. However according to a report from China Times (via BGR), it seems that Apple is expected to finally introduce an iPad mini refresh in 2019.
Recently there was a report on how Apple’s new iPad Pros are bending (a stress test last month found that the tablet seems to bend pretty easily without much force). However instead of promising a fix, Apple instead told publications like The Verge that the bend is “normal” and isn’t considered a defect, and that it will not worsen over time nor will it affect the tablet’s performance.
If you bought a tablet online and it shipped to your home and you discovered that it was slightly bent/warped, would you consider that a problem? We’re sure many people would, although oddly enough Apple doesn’t seem to think so. According to reports, it seems that there are some iPad Pro (2018) units that have been shipped to customers who have discovered that the tablets are actually bent on arrival.
When Apple announced their new 2018 iPad Pros, what was interesting about the announcement was that Apple decided to drop the use of their proprietary Lightning port in favor of a more universal port, the USB-C. This immediately opened up all kinds of doors that would change how users used the tablet.
When Apple introduced Face ID on the iPhones (and eventually the iPad), they ended up removing Touch ID in the process. According to Apple back in 2017, Touch ID was never up for consideration when designing the iPhone X, suggesting that Apple could potentially be done with the tech on its mobile devices for good.
Unlike Android smartphones that seem to utilize technology by Qualcomm to enable fast charging, iPhone users who want to fast charge their devices will need to purchase separate accessories in order to make that happen. Now if fast charging is something you want for your iPhone, then you’ll be interested to learn that Apple is now selling its 18W USB-C power adapter by itself.
We doubt that anyone has ever equated Apple with being cheap or affordable, but if you’re hoping to save some money, you might be interested to learn that Apple has announced on their website that they will be hosting a four-day sale starting on Black Friday and it will last through Cyber Monday.
We’ve all accidentally sat on our devices before, and for the most part most of them escape unscathed. However with Apple’s new iPad Pro, you might want to check to make sure you don’t sit down on it because based on a test conducted by JerryRigEverything, it appears that Apple’s new iPad Pros bend pretty easily.
Apple’s products have never been referred to as cheap. However if for whatever reason you must own an Apple product, then chances are you might already be familiar with the fact that Apple sells refurbished products on its website. In fact the company has recently launched a redesigned online refurbished store.
Last month Apple took the wraps off their new iPad Pros. Apple changed up the design of the iPad Pro to give it an edge-to-edge display, and in the case of the smaller version, it allowed Apple to offer up a larger display while keeping the entire body roughly the same size, which bumped it to an 11-inch display.
The first-gen Apple Pencil was a pretty straightforward device that allowed users to use it with the iPad Pro, Apple improved upon its functionality with the launch of the second-gen Apple Pencil that was announced alongside the newly-designed iPad Pro. Now thanks to a teardown of the device by the folks at iFixit, it seems that the device could potentially do more than advertised.
Many scoffed at Apple when the company first launched the iPad, but fast forward to today, it is clear that the iPad is here to stay, with some users even shifting from using a laptop to the tablet full time. Now it seems that more are shifting to the use of the iPad, such as Broadway productions where some shows are swapping out physical production books and scripts in favor […]
When Apple announced their new iPad Pro, they also introduced a new Smart Keyboard that for the most part is the same as before, except that it now gives users two different angles to view their tablets with. However if you want more freedom when it comes to choosing viewing angles and potentially better keys, Brydge might have something for you.
Apple’s new iPad Pro comes with quite a few magnets, in case you did not realize. A test conducted by Pocket-lint discovered that the tablet contained as many as 90 magnets on the back of the iPad Pro alone. If you thought that the magnets were only for the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard, think again.
