Word has it that Apple has a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro in the works that could be unveiled this coming June at WWDC 2017. In terms of design we’re not sure what to expect – could it be that Apple will stick to the current iPad Pro design? Or will the new iPad Pros start to adopt some of the rumored iPhone 8’s design features?
Apple’s iPad Pros were rumored to undergo a refresh earlier this year, but clearly that did not happen. However recent rumors have suggested that the refresh could take place in June where it could debut alongside the rumored Siri speaker (Apple’s answer to Amazon’s Echo and the Google Home).
We’ve been hearing rumors that Apple could be getting ready for an iPad Pro refresh soon and that it should have taken place in March/April, but clearly that did not happen. Instead what we got was a refresh of the original 9.7-inch iPad which is basically a slightly more affordable model for those who just want an iPad without all the fuss.
If your Apple device is faulty or broken, sending it back to Apple is one of the ways you can go about getting it fixed. However for some customers, this can be a hassle as not everyone stays near an Apple Store. However that will change in the future thanks to an update to the Apple Support app.
T-Mobile started selling cellular iPads in 2013. When it launched the cellular model, it also launched a new plan which promised iPad customers 200MB of free LTE data per month, for the life of the tablet. It has been running this promotion for more than three years but it appears that T-Mobile is doing away with it. T-Mobile is going to stop offering 200MB of free LTE data to new […]
One of the accessories launched with the iPad Pro is the Smart Keyboard which not only turns the iPad Pro into a laptop-like device, but it also takes advantage of the tablet’s Smart Connector. Unfortunately not everyone’s Smart Keyboard experience was particularly good and there have been quite a few customers experiencing issues with their keyboard.
Apple’s iPad shipments have been constantly declining for the past few quarters but that’s not because there’s something wrong with the company’s tablets and customers are opting for other options. The tablet market as a whole has been declining for the past few quarters so Apple is just being hit by the market sentiment. Nevertheless, despite declining sales, Apple still remains the top tablet manufacturer in the world.
The other day Logitech announced the Universal Folio tablet case which is a case designed for tablets of various sizes. However if for whatever reason you wanted something that is iPad specific only, not to worry as Logitech has you covered as the company has recently announced the Slim Folio iPad keyboard case.
There’s some bad news for those who are on a grandfathered unlimited iPad data plan on AT&T. The carrier is sending out emails to those users informing them that it’s basically going to make the plan unlimited in name only. It has decided to throttle speeds on the grandfathered unlimited iPad data plans starting May 24th, 2017.
Under Apple Care if you were to send in your device and it were to be replaced, sometimes what you end up with is a refurbished unit. What this means is that this device has been used before, but it has been cleaned up and has had certain parts replaced to make it feel brand new, even though technically it’s not.
Apple is one of the greener tech companies in operation today, and the company’s efforts at making their products and operations are green as possible is one that they are pretty proud of and have never failed to remind their customers of that. However as it stands there are still some components of their products that aren’t quite as environmentally-friendly.
In the next 58 years or so, quite a few of us might be dead, some of us might be really old, and some of us could be hitting the retirement age. However if there is one thing that could still be standing in 2075, it could be Apple. This is according to Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak who believes that Apple will still be around by that time.
If you own the 4th generation iPad and you send it in for service or repair, you might actually find yourself with an upgraded tablet. This is because in a report from 9to5Mac, Apple will actually be replacing some 4th generation iPad unit with the iPad Air 2. Apparently this is due to low stock of the 4th gen iPad which has been discontinued.
While Apple’s iPad Pro is definitely not the cheapest iPad we’ve seen, and the Apple Pencil being one of the most expensive stylus we’ve come across, reviews of the tablet and the stylus have been fantastic. Artists and graphic designers have lauded praise onto the combination, claiming that the experience offers up an almost lag-free interface.
Earlier this year it was revealed that Apple had filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm alleging that the company had “extorted” Apple by withholding payments made to the Cupertino company. Apple also expanded its lawsuit against Qualcomm to the likes of China and the UK and last we heard, Qualcomm was planning a countersuit of their own.
Thanks to the launch of the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil, there have been some comparisons drawn up between the iPad Pro and similar tablets like the Cintiq. However if there is one main difference, is that you can’t use the iPad Pro as an drawing tablet and connect it to your PC or Mac, meaning that all drawing needs to be done on the tablet itself.
While we’re still waiting on new iPad Pro refreshes, back in March Apple announced a new-ish iPad in the form of the 9.7-inch model. This isn’t the refresh that we’re sure many iPad owners have been waiting for, especially when it is both thicker and heavier than its predecessor, but at the same time it is affordable which could help attract new customers.
Apple’s philosophy seems to be that if they can be self-reliant, they should be. This is why there are many aspects of Apple’s products that are developed in-house, and it is why Apple prefers to control all aspects of their products, ranging from hardware to software. For example Apple uses their own mobile chipset for its iPhone and iPads, and now it looks GPUs could be next.
Just the other day Apple released iOS 10.3 and if you needed a reason to update, apart from the patching of a Safari security hole, it seems that there is a good chance that if you were to update your iPhone to iOS 10.3, you might notice some speed increases, or at least that’s what’s being claimed at the moment.
For some reason, Google has taken an awfully long time to release an official Google Calendar iPad app. While Calendar has been available on iOS for a very long time now it was only designed for iPhones and wasn’t natively compatible with the iPad. Now with the iPad being the tablet of choice for millions of people across the globe, Google’s Calendar product was missing out on many potential users, […]
