It has been rumored that Apple could be hosting an event this month where they might unveil new products like iPads and MacBooks. However, to date the company has yet to send out any invites or confirm an event. Were the rumors wrong? Possibly, but there could also be another reason why.
iOS 14 was released over seven months ago in 2020, and it seems that adoption of the latest major build of iOS is going pretty well because according to the data collected by Mixpanel, they have found that iOS 14’s adoption is over 90%. What this means is that over 90% of eligible iPhones and iPads have been updated to the latest version of iOS.
Apple’s iPad mini is actually a rather perfect size. It’s small enough to make it easy to be brought around, but also big enough to make it comfortable for use when reading books, watching videos, surfing the web, and so on. Unfortunately, the design of the iPad mini is kind of dated compared to its larger and newer siblings.
Many of us know Apple’s iPad in its current iteration, but clearly this is not the original design that Apple had chosen. Over the years, Apple, like most companies, has gone through various testing, designing, and prototyping stages to find out what works best, so it’s always interesting to see what could have been.
If you own an iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, then you might want to update your devices ASAP. This is because Apple has released iOS 14.4.2 which comes with a fix for an exploit in Safari that could allow for hackers to potentially manipulate websites through cross site scripting when viewed through Safari on your mobile devices.
When it comes to the chipsets used in Apple’s iPads, what we’ve seen is that Apple usually uses a variant of its A-series chipsets. This is usually based on the current-gen A-series but with some additional cores unlocked or a slight speed boost. However, this year’s iPad refresh could be rather exciting.
A recent report from DigiTimes has revealed that Apple’s iPad Pro refresh might have been pushed to April instead of March as previously rumored. Now a report from Bloomberg is corroborating those claims by saying that they too expect the tablet to make its appearance in April.
Apple refreshes its iPad lineup pretty much every year, but this year’s refresh is expected to be rather exciting because if the rumors are to be believed, it could be the first iPad to sport a mini LED display. Unfortunately, it seems that we might have to wait just a bit longer than expected, or at least that’s what a report from DigiTimes is claiming.
According to the rumors, Apple is set to refresh its iPad Pro lineup soon. Given that the last update took place in early 2020, it makes sense that the next update would take place around the same time this year. Apple has yet to officially announce anything or send out invites, but we reckon it could be soon.
Ever wonder how companies come up with serial numbers for your products? It might seem random, but there is usually a pattern behind it that can identify a product type, year it was made, configuration option, and so on. Apple has been doing that for a while now, but it seems that they want to change it.
When Apple introduced the second-gen Apple Pencil a few years ago, they brought various changes to the design and features of the stylus. This included a matte finish, magnetic charging, and also the ability to double tap on the stylus to change functions while using different types of apps.
Right now, the only OLED devices from Apple are the iPhones and the Apple Watch. However, there have been rumors suggesting that Apple could actually make the jump to mini LEDs for its other products, which is why we have to say we are a bit skeptical to learn about a new rumor from DigiTimes who claims otherwise.
Apple’s current iPad lineup consists of several models. There is the smallest iPad mini, the iPad, the iPad Air, and the iPad Pro. However, there could soon be a fifth iPad model, or at least that’s what a post on Korean blog Naver seems to suggest where they claim that Apple could be working on an alleged iPad mini Pro.
For Apple’s iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad, the company uses its A-series of chipsets. This has been that way for years now, but apparently with the upcoming iPad Pro refresh, that could change. This is according to a video from Mark Gurman over at Bloomberg who hinted at a processor change for the iPad Pro refresh.
If the rumors are to be believed, Apple could be developing a foldable iPhone of its own, but the question is what would such a device look like? Thanks to designer Svyatoslav Alexandrov, a video has been published onto the ConceptsiPhone YouTube page that gives us a look at what such a handset could look like if it were to be made.
If you’ve ever been to a drive-thru at a fast food restaurant, you’re probably familiar with how the process works. You pull up at an intercom system, place your order, and then drive to another window to pay and collect your order. However, it seems that Chick-fil-A is looking to shake up that experience with the use of iPads.
There have been rumors suggesting that Apple could have new iPads in the works with mini LED displays, and also that there could be a new AirTags tracking accessory. So the question is, when will these products be announced? Turns out it could be in the next few weeks, or so the latest rumors are claiming.
For a while, it has been rumored that Apple could be looking to introduce a 120Hz ProMotion display to the iPhone. The latest rumors are suggesting that this feature could actually debut with the 2021 iPhone, and now a patent discovered by Patently Apple seems to provide more evidence of this happening.
Last year, it was discovered that with the newer iPad Pro models, Apple introduced a privacy feature for the tablet’s microphone where when the cover of the iPad Pro’s case was closed, it would disconnect the microphone. The idea is that it would prevent any potential issues where the microphone could be hijacked and used to spy on users without their knowledge.
Microsoft’s Office has been available on the iPad for quite a while now as individual apps, but as some of you might have noticed, Microsoft has started to unify those apps into a singular app that more or less does the same thing except that users won’t need to download and launch separate apps for different tasks.
