The iPad has been positioned as a productivity device where users can create on them. However, these creations are typically things like creating art like drawing, editing photos, videos, and writing documents, but it seems that developers could soon have a reason to pick up the iPad for themselves in the future.
In the past, if you wanted to pair a gaming controller with your iPhone or iPad, you would usually need to look for an accessory labelled as MFi, meaning that it has been certified by Apple as being compatible with their iOS devices. However, with the release of iOS 13, Apple has finally allowed controllers like those made for the PS4 to pair with iOS devices.
While there’s no disputing the security and accuracy of Apple’s Face ID system, it’s hard to ignore the fact that it is simply not quite as convenient as Touch ID. We’re sure that some iPhone users were bummed when Touch ID was replaced with Face ID, but recent rumors have suggested that Apple is still working on creating an in-display version of Touch ID.
Recently it was discovered that 2020’s iPad Pro refresh comes with an A12Z chipset that is almost identical to the 2018 iPad Pro’s A12X chipset, save for an extra GPU core that was enabled. Given that there was almost a 2 year gap between the tablets, many are no doubt a little perplexed by Apple’s decision.
When Apple announced their new iPad Pro earlier this year, one of the new features of the iPad Pro and its software is the support for trackpads. To that end, Apple also announced a new Magic Keyboard accessory for the new iPad Pro that comes with redesigned scissor switch keys and a built-in trackpad.
Apple’s iPads typically feature an “X” version of the chipset used in its iPhones. This was true of the 2018 iPad Pro which used the A12X chipset, a variant of the A12 found on the iPhone XS series. This is why it was surprising that for the 2020 iPad Pro, Apple opted to use the A12Z instead of what was presumed to be the A13X.
Over the past few generations, Apple’s iPhone hasn’t really seen that much of a change in design, save for larger screen options, color options, and the camera bump. However, this year is set to change that. According to a report from Bloomberg, they are claiming that this year’s iPhones could adopt the iPad Pro’s design.
Communication tools have become more important than ever, where due to the coronavirus outbreak, people are being forced to self-isolate where they are now working and studying from home. This means that being able to chat with your friends and loved ones is crucial, especially in maintaining your mental health.
With our laptops and smartphones and tablets sporting built-in microphones and cameras, there is a bit of concern that these features could be used to spy on us. Apple tried to resolve that problem with its laptops back in 2018, where they introduced a disconnect feature in its MacBooks that disabled the microphone when the laptop’s lid was closed.
Given that a lot of us are now being forced to work and study from home away from our friends and even family, it means that communication tools like video conferencing apps are more important than ever as a means to keep in touch with our loved ones. If you have been largely relying on FaceTime, you might want to skip the latest iOS update.
If you’re looking to turn your new iPad Pro into a productivity powerhouse, then you’ll definitely need to add a keyboard to it. This is because if you’ve ever tried typing long-form essays or documents using the virtual keyboard, you know what a terrible experience that can be. The good news is that it looks like Zagg might have a couple of new options for you.
Apple had previously announced that they would be temporarily shutting down its physical stores until the 27th of March. However, given the severity of the coronavirus outbreak, the company cancelled this deadline and published on its website that all its physical stores will be closed until further notice.
If you find yourself running low on storage space on your iPhone or iPad, here are some ways that you can go about freeing up that precious storage space.
Apple recently launched their 2020 iPad Pros which came with a brand new A12Z chipset, improved GPUs, and more RAM. Given that the last time the iPad Pro was refreshed was back in 2018, we expected that the new models should prove to be a lot better than its predecessors, but that might not necessarily be the case.
